A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

Ayana Lage lives with her husband Vagner (her high-school crush!) in Tampa, Florida, and they’re expecting a baby girl this August. “Depending on what I’m wearing, people wouldn’t guess I’m pregnant,” she says. “Although now I’ve reached the point where I’m waddling a little bit, so they probably know what’s up.” Here, Ayana shows us five maternity looks she wore in a week…

A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

Dress: Stitch Fix by Skies are Blue, similar. Shoes: Naot, similar. Earrings: Lisi Lirch. Necklace: Made by Mary.

“Right now, I’m a size 16, and pre-pregnancy I was a 14. Shopping is easier for me than someone who is bigger than me walking into a store and finding nothing that fits — but it can still be frustrating because lots of stores don’t have clothes that are my size or that look good on my body type. So, when I find a style that works for me, I stick with it. A wrap dress is one of those styles.”

Dress: Amazon. Sweater: Vineyard Vines, similar. Shoes: Naot, similar. Mask: Beautickled. Necklace: Made by Mary. Bag: Sseko, similar.

“When I found the body positivity movement, I was really energized by it. But because I’m so hard on myself, I immediately felt like a fraud: I can’t call myself body positive if I don’t love every inch of my body every single day. Then I discovered the concept of body neutrality. Instead of focusing on finding yourself beautiful, it’s realizing that beauty isn’t one of your most important qualities. How you look doesn’t impact you’re worth as a human. That shift has helped me in how I view myself during pregnancy, too. Instead of trying to feel positive about going up a size, I spend less time thinking about my body overall.”

A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

Jumpsuit: ban.do. Shoes: Naot, similar. Earrings: Lisi Lirch. Necklace: Made by Mary.

“These peep-toe booties are really comfortable. I used to agonize over what colors to pick at the nail salon, but two years ago, an influencer I follow said she always paints her nails white. And I was like, that is genius. Because I live in Florida, it’s always kind of summer, so white works year round and goes with everything.”

A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

Dress: Target. Shoes: Similar. Earrings: Lisi Lirch. Necklace: Made by Mary.

“I own this Target dress in three colors. It has been my pregnancy uniform. Our baby girl is due in August. I had a miscarriage before this with our son, Jed. I hadn’t realized how common miscarriage was until it happened to me and people started reaching out. That was really, really surprising to me, and comforting for sure. My husband gave me a memorial necklace that I wear every day. It has his name — Jed — and a little drawing of holly because my due date was in December. It’s super special.”

A Week of Outfits: Ayana Lage

Loungewear set: American Eagle, similar. Sneakers: Similar, similar.

“It’s temping to stay in your pajamas all day when you’re working from home. But I try to change into loungewear, which basically means nicer pajamas. My other pregnancy must-haves are a belly support band, maternity leggings (love yourself! do not stuff your pregnant body into regular leggings!!!), a portable fan for hot flashes and breath mints because I’m always nauseous.”

Thank you so much, Ayana!

P.S. More women share their weeks of outfits, including a Houston-based mother and a Toronto professor in a pink jumpsuit.

  1. Ashley S. says...

    I LOVE following Ayana on instagram! I’m also a size 16 and pregnant, so I especially appreciate this week of style post :)

  2. Allyson says...

    You’re so stylish! And body neutrality is so much smarter and KINDER. Body positivity icks me out like the “Choose Happy” crowd. Sometimes I am not happy about anything, let alone the my body. But when you realize your body is the LEAST interesting thing about you, then you’re really at peace. Also, I love how you keep Jed close. Wishing you a peaceful birth and a lifetime of joy.

  3. Caro says...

    I feel like this is the totally wrong thing to say after that beautiful message about body neutrality but wow those legs are gorgeous! Maybe you can come dress me. :)

  4. Sharon says...

    I listened to Ayana on a podcast and was so impressed with her. As a fellow Floridian, I’m always interested in seeing how she handles the heat. It makes it so hard to dress, especially if not working in an office.

  5. I loved the note to “love yourself! do not stuff your pregnant body into regular leggings!!!” SO TRUE! You’re going to need those maternity leggings later anyway, just get them sooner!

    I’m really excited to be introduced to the ban.do jumpsuits, jumpsuits for plus sizes and fun colors/prints!

  6. She is really really beautiful and she glows too. And she is stylish! I was sad when I saw the last picture. O just wanted more. Congratulations on your new baby

  7. Tovah says...

    I don’t think I’ve ever clicked on so many links in a Week Of Outfits post. You have awesome style!!

  8. Amy says...

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for your take on body neutrality! I personally find a lot of the body positivity mantras cloying and patronizing. I’m tired of people saying I should call my stretch marks “tiger stripes” or “battle scars” or that I should be proud of the way my boobs look because they are a reminder of how I was able to feed my babies. Am I grateful that my body was able to sustain life? OMFG YES. Still doesn’t mean I’m obligated to feel a certain way about them. I’m not ashamed of my body, but it doesn’t mean I have to be all rah-rah about everything about it, all the time!

    • sookiestackhouse says...

      Tiger stripes, seriously?! Thank you for the laugh — I needed it! And I completely agree that all this obsessive advice to love your body is annoying. It’s a body! Some of it is good, some less good. The way it looks is really not the most important thing.

  9. Dianere says...

    This woman’s style is the coolest.

  10. Jackie says...

    So pretty, and I love her style.

  11. Laura says...

    Goodness, you are one gorgeous lady! Love love love that green dress with the polka dots. Xoxo

  12. stuart d pennebaker says...

    i love EVERY single one of these looks! i’ve been trying to find a pair of “summer booties” everywhere and am ordering those next time i have a “treat yo self” day. you are one gorgeous lady and you seem to glow from the inside out!

  13. jane says...

    You’re actually gorgeous – like, really really – and I love how stylish you are. Also your husband sounds so thoughtful.

  14. Blythe says...

    Ayana! So much of what you shared resonated with me! Body neutrality has been a lifeline and was so helpful during my pregnancy! Congratulations on your babe and best of luck with your delivery in August! I gave birth last August and those last few weeks are rough with the heat. xoxoxo

  15. E says...

    LOVE her style! Ayana, you are beautiful. Thanks for showcasing her, COJ!

  16. Gillian says...

    I love what Ayana said about body neutrality and thinking less about her body in general. I sometimes find myself oscillating between obsessing over my skin, my hair, my body, etc. and then punishing myself for doing that. The idea of just not thinking about it as much is so freeing!

  17. Amy York says...

    Ayanna is one of my faves on IG – this was so fun to read!

  18. I love Ayana’s outfits! I want that blue lounge set! Ayana, I really like the body neutrality concept. Also, you are beautiful and you really glow.
    Having read in the comments that you are a blogger, I will be looking for your blog.
    Wishing you and your family so much joy and love.

  19. karen says...

    I love the comment on body neutrality.

  20. Tiffany Cain says...

    So pretty! Love that first dress

  21. Lindsey says...

    Loved this! It’s my birthday tomorrow and I’m buying myself that green jumper and debating a commemorative necklace for my daughter who I lost at 23wks gestation and my living child as well. Thank you! <3

  22. Heather says...

    Gorgeous Ayana! Thanks for sharing your style. I live in Houston and I’ve found dresses to be my best friend in the sweltering summers. I’m still trying to find a style that will keep me cool, be flattering, and allow me to do all the moving around necessary with four kids. I love the Target dress.

    For lots of robust body neutrality reading, I love Beauty Redefined. https://beautyredefined.org/

  23. Robin says...

    You are so gorgeous, Ayana! I know it’s hard to see that from the inside some days though <3. I am generally on good terms with my body. I’m a mom of two and in my 40s and there are wrinkles and white hairs and I don’t try the way I used to in terms of beauty or style and yet – I’m probably as positive as I’ve ever been. This body birthed two beautiful boys and it can run and play and cook and think and love and especially now, what else can you really ask for. Also I don’t weigh myself anymore. I try and make sure even the doctor doesn’t tell me! I couldn’t avoid it during my pregnancies and it was not healthy. Try to remember how beautiful and magical you are. Numbers can’t measure that. Hugs!

  24. Alexa Mason says...

    What a great post. Ayana, you are beautiful!!! <3 I love your style.

  25. laney says...

    Thank you so much for introducing me to the concept of body neutrality. I’ve never heard of that before and it’s a bit of mind blower– really resonates with me.

  26. Julee says...

    You are super stylish and look amazing. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
    The necklace for the baby you lost is such a sweet and touching way to honor him.

  27. Midge says...

    I definitely didn’t look that awesome when I was pregnant.

  28. Laura says...

    I have so much respect for your journey to body neutrality, but just know that to the rest of us you are GORGEOUS! I lost a baby to stillbirth a few years ago and I had the same experience of having no idea how common pregnancy loss is. So many warm and positive thoughts for your delivery in August mamma.

  29. Becca says...

    My goodness! She’s so cute and stylish. It gives me so much hope for maternity clothing. I just imagine myself wearing a potato sack after Xth month. This gives me something to work towards. Thanks for sharing this post. Love love love Ayana’s style.

  30. Clara says...

    So beautiful!!

  31. Katie says...

    Ayana has quickly become one of my favorite bloggers/people to follow on instagram. So excited to see her featured here! I think I need that target dress now…

  32. Sophie says...

    I love following Ayana on instagram! Her style is amazing and her account is such a fun follow

  33. I love those peep toe shoes and the white boots. It’s nice to see Florida represented here, too! I grew up a little bit south of Tampa in Bradenton.

    • Shayna Rodriguez says...

      Came here to say this! There are some normal, nice people down here! Shoutout from Tampa 💙

    • Christy says...

      I grew up in South Tampa! I was really squinting at these photos seeing if I could recognize anyplace

  34. Claudia Gomez says...

    Wow, super stylish! No easy feat when your pregnant. Clearly she has it intuitively and I love how everything is comfortable yet colorful and chic.

    • Meredith says...

      Love this style profile! I’m six month postpartum and still want all her outfits.

  35. Amanda says...

    Such a babe! Very thrilled for her journey to motherhood and find the necklace memorial so touching. Just did a dive into her Instagram and love hearing her stories and reading more about her. Keep it up, CoJ! We can use all the inspiration we can get these days. Solidarity.

  36. jeannie says...

    What a gorgeous woman you are, Ayana! And I really love your concept of body neutrality — such a good reminder to prioritize and value other qualities besides looks. Hope everything goes well with the birth of your baby!

  37. Lisa says...

    I love your style. As someone who suffered a miscarriage, I think the necklace is a loving way to remember your son. I now have 3 children – my oldest is 18! – but I will never forget the pain of losing my first. Sending best wishes on your upcoming birth:)

  38. Brooke says...

    Love Ayana’s style and definitely recommend following her on Instagram. She’s so fun and also shares great content. Thanks for featuring her, Cup of Jo!

  39. moet says...

    OMG- She is so pretty and love her style

  40. Rachel says...

    She is so beautiful. I am also due in August! Love the idea of body neutrality. I’ve gained 50+ pounds over the course of my pregnancy, and I had such a hard time with the weight gain initially. It dawned on me that I only get to be pregnant for 40 weeks. How unfair to myself and this little person to be anything but happy. Wishing Ayana all the best with the arrival of her little girl!!

  41. Ramona says...

    Cutest maternity style ever.

  42. Sadie says...

    Body neutrality (sometimes even positivity!!) comes to me with gentle physical activities like hiking, yard work, and playing with my niece and nephews. As a former athlete, vigorous exercise takes me back to a place of punishing my body to reach peak performance. Being gentle with myself has given me a framework to heal my relationship with my body and exercise.

    • Cymbidy says...

      Sometimes I wish there were “likes” in this format. I like your comment very much. <3

  43. Winter Blue says...

    Gorgeous!!

  44. Jenna says...

    Loved your comment about body neutrality! Thank you for sharing this perspective; such a refreshing take. I couldn’t agree more!

  45. Dawn G says...

    You are beautiful! You are glowing. Love your style, perspective on beauty & your gorgeous smile!

    Congratulations! Sending positive thoughts for your family. Such a special time.

  46. Anna says...

    FABULOUS. And inspiring – time for a wrap dress! Thank you, Ayana! And congratulations on your growing family. Love is infinite!

  47. kiki says...

    I just ordered that green dress from target! i’m not pregnant, but I did it anyways! It’s so cute :)

  48. Lucy says...

    You have beautiful style, Ayana! Congrats on your baby!

    Joanna, just wondering–it’s summer and I’m missing the motherhood around the world series! Would you ever consider doing a post following up with some of the families you have featured, to see how they are doing in quarantine around the world? I’d so fascinated to hear. xo

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      that’s a great idea to do a quarantine follow-up. I’ll reach out to some of the parents!

    • Alexandra says...

      Love this idea, Lucy!

    • Morgan says...

      Love this idea

    • This is a fun idea! We live in Kigali, Rwanda – I’d be happy to share what quarantine and Covid response has looked like here :)

  49. Hannah says...

    Ayana, you look beautiful! I’m also due in August and also have that target dress…that I think I should now get in the green 😊 it’s so good! Best of luck with your babe!

  50. Tami says...

    Ayana and Vagner are beautiful inside and out. What a lucky little girl!

  51. Meg P says...

    I’m sorry to hear about your loss, Ayana, and touched by the sweet memorial necklace gift. What a lovely way to remember your son.

  52. Gaby says...

    Ugh, I was looking into buying that Ban.do jumpsuit just before all of the racism issues within the company were made public. Now the temptation is back seeing Ayana looking great in it!

    • Gaby says...

      To be clear, I’m not going to get it! I’m just saying, dang it looks cute.

  53. Sarah says...

    Umm, I want to look like that when I’m pregnant! Beautiful! Congratulations on your baby girl.

  54. Amy Marie Westervelt says...

    I love every one of these outfits! Congrats!

  55. Mary says...

    Thank you, Ayana, for sharing the story of your miscarriage. Before having my son last year, I miscarried twice in 2018, and I was absolutely clotheslined by it. It made me realize I had never thought of miscarriage as something that could happen to me, and it changed my perspective on pretty much everything. I’m always deeply grateful when someone else shares their story, too. Much love and congratulations on your baby girl (and I love your style! I pretty much wore the same tired Old Navy maternity dress my entire pregnancy).

  56. I enjoyed reading this. I too have found body neutrality more helpful than body love. Prior to pregnancy I lived in a body neutrality space and for me that involved not looking at myself much in the mirror, but during pregnancy I found myself not wanting to miss any of the body changes of the growing baby inside me. It was an experience that moved me from body neutrality to body acceptance or, I guess, body gratitude. I had my second baby a year ago and my body is different and I feel myself back at body neutrality and I’m good with that. I’ve long felt that my best body image days aren’t the days I feel my smallest, but the days I don’t really think about my body once. I think the only time I’ll really end up in a high level of body acceptance is when growing a child.

    I sometimes feel like the body love messages are unrealistic in a culture that doesn’t praise adequate levels of fat and the ideal body promoted is an unhealthy one for many women. I love seeing this shift, as now when shopping for clothing online some stores have an option to choose a model that has a body size closer to your own…SO GREAT!

    • Margaret says...

      Beautiful hair!
      And thanks for the comments in body neutrality. I’m a very basic looking person, with no complaints about my appearance but nothing to be enthusiastic about either. I hadn’t heard of the term body neutrality but I makes sense for how I’ve come to accept my body. Beauty is just one quality a body can have. I appreciate how strong and sturdy my body is, even if it’s nothing like a model’s!

    • Naomi says...

      I hadn’t heard the term ‘body gratitude’ before I read your comment. Thank you for mentioning it! I think it’s helped me round out my own concept, in a beautiful way, of what I want to aim for in this area.

      I am so here for every word that CofJ publishes on this topic!

  57. Ellen says...

    Checked out his Insta—gah, what a beautiful couple! Lucky kid :)

  58. Karen says...

    Well, she is just STUNNING. Love her style and her glow. Pregnancy looks good on Ayana!!

  59. S says...

    Love her style and attitude!

  60. Vanessa says...

    So happy for you Ayana. You are beautiful!

  61. Kristín says...

    Gorgeous lady with great style – I’m always so impressed with stylish pregnant women, if I’m ever pregnant again I’ll try to do better hehe
    Loved this week of outfits – love the diversity in body types :)

  62. Susannah says...

    Love maternity leggings! My youngest is 10 years old and I still wear mat leggings and tights lol

  63. Jill says...

    What a beautiful woman with great style. I am just entering my second trimester and I am inspired to up my fashion game :)

  64. AJ says...

    I love Ayana! She’s such a wonderful light and I smile every time I see her pop up in my instagram feed.

  65. Jane I. says...

    OMG YES! I JUST bought that ban.do jumpsuit in black and it is EVERYTHING. I kept thinking to myself, “This is the perfect play suit for nursing and chasing toddlers. I feel like it’s something I would have found on COJ.” And lo and behold the universe has spoken! But also…. congrats to Ayana on her baby!! She is so gorgeous!!! I love every outfit!

  66. Tara says...

    I LOVE this so much! Ayana’s style is so laid back but intentionally fabulous – exactly what I aspire to (she says while typing in sweats her husband’s old button down..lol)! Thanks for sharing and best wishes for a quick and easy labor and delivery! xo

  67. Elizabeth says...

    She’s so cute and stylish! Woah! Love this one. also that jumpsuit !

  68. JR says...

    Not a fashion-related comment but… Thank you for helping to normalizing miscarriage. I was also due (this) December but sadly it didn’t work out. It gives me so much hope to read stories and see photos of glowing gorgeous (stylish!!) woman who went on to have successful pregnancies.

    • Sarah says...

      Absolutely agree! I would have been due in October with my first pregnancy that ended in miscarriage and it’s so healing to read about other women’s experiences in a more nuanced way (not in a stand-alone post about miscarriage).

      I’m 9 weeks along with my second pregnancy, fingers crossed for a successful one!

    • Samantha says...

      wishing you both luck in your journeys! <3<3

  69. Marisa says...

    Thank you so much, Ayana. I love your style and think you’re beautiful! We all have our body issues, but one of the outcomes of having a baby is appreciating what your body can do. Also, having a child definitely makes you put less focus on yourself, in general. You will be so in love with your child and proud of yourself!

  70. Emma says...

    Yes, Ayana! I followed her on Instagram a couple week ago after hearing her interview on the Bad on Paper podcast. What a light!

  71. Clare says...

    I’m lucky enough to know Ayana and she’s just as sweet and funny as you’d think! xo

    • Sasha L says...

      Well, my afternoon is blown, because your IG is awesome and I’m reading IT ALL.

      So happy to meet you! Congratulations on a beautiful baby girl. I wish you the best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy, and a wonderful birth, and a magical time with your baby girl. Thank you for talking about miscarriage ♥️

      I love every single one of your outfits – the combo of pretty colors, comfy-ness and looking very polished is perfect and just everything you picked seems to suit you so well.

      I would love to see more content from Ayana! Maybe some new mama tips? Home tour? Great recipes new families love to receive? I’m down for all of it.

  72. Heather says...

    Really love the idea of body neutrality – especially when I think of how to frame appearance to my young girls. Thanks so much for sharing!

  73. Shauna says...

    Love this week of outfits post! Ayana’s dress in the third photo is ban.do, where current and former employees recently exposed the company for extremely racist behavior and culture, causing their founder Jen Gotch to step down – see a recent Buzzfeed article for more information. I think that affiliate links to this company shouldn’t be posted until they have time to prove they are making significant steps towards antiracism.

    https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/stephaniemcneal/bando-jen-gotch-lifeguard-press-racist-toxic-behavior

    • Nina says...

      Such a good point. Never mind affiliate links – any links at all! Don’t help them sell their stuff!

    • K says...

      This is a great point! Thanks for the link, Shauna.

  74. Emily L says...

    Love seeing so many dresses! I used to wear many because they felt too fancy, but now I’m realizing they are just so much easier and come in all forms! Ayana is so stylish yet it feels so relatable like “hey, I could dress like that too!”

  75. Katie Weltner says...

    Annnnnnnd bought that jumpsuit. I’m 33 weeks pregnant and can’t wait to wear it – if not now, then while nursing!

  76. Naomi says...

    She looks wonderful. Maternity style can really be a challenge, and I am impressed by anyone who nails it so well.

  77. Hilary says...

    Love this! Suggestion for your next week of outfits…Carmeon Hamilton, an incredible interior designer in Memphis!

  78. Paige says...

    1000000% yes to maternity leggings! If you buy no other maternity clothes, get these.

  79. Jenn P says...

    I love how many of her pieces are affordable!

  80. Beth says...

    This is so fun and she is just lovely. What a beauty. Her hair and smile are a dream!

  81. Julie says...

    I’m not pregnant and I wanted every outfit! You look stunning!

    Also–really loving how CoJ is having participants incorporate masks into their outfits.

    • Lauren H says...

      It is clearly the summer of 2020! I didn’t even realize she was pictured in a mask until I read your comment. Which means that masks have become extremely normalized to me by now I guess. If it keeps me safe, I like it. Kudos COJ for including the masks!

  82. Shanna says...

    Love love love the concept of body neutrality. As a fellow size 14 (as a nonpregnant woman) I can attest to how frustrating it can be to shop for clothes (nothing in straight sizes, nothing in plus sizes) and how difficult body positivity can be when struggling with my own less-than-positive views of myself. It’s certainly a journey and seeing beautiful women like Ayana featured on one of my favorite blogs does help me see the beauty in myself, too!

  83. Ann says...

    Love that black dress with the appliqué on the elbow! So chic! Congrats!!!

  84. Ashley says...

    Beautiful! Love Ayana’s style. However I noticed you linked to a few pairs of shoes from Boohoo. They’ve recently been accused of modern slavery in their UK factories. Please read this article or if you’re behind a paywall there’s a few articles in Forbes.

    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/boohoo-fashion-giant-faces-slavery-investigation-57s3hxcth

    Perhaps in light of this you could link to a similar pair of shoes that wasn’t produced under such exploitative circumstances?

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      Thank you Ashley!

  85. Amelia says...

    I absolutely love her mix of the practical and the stylish. Her self-confidence shines in every photo. I really dig the way she looks straight on into the camera. “How you look doesn’t impact your worth as a human.” Amen.

  86. Maggie says...

    Beautiful post! Need to throw in another positive comment for Made By Mary necklaces – they’re beautiful! I never take my Zola mini-disc off.

  87. Lindsey says...

    Thank you for introducing me to the concept of body neutrality — very liberating!

  88. Gemma says...

    Beautiful! I love the idea of body neutrality, and that we are so much more than just our appearance. Thank you for sharing this 😍

    • jess says...

      yes! i ‘m pretty sure i got the recommendation for Beyond Beautiful by Anuschka Rees from cup of jo awhile ago but here to shout it out again :)

  89. Norah says...

    so cute! i want every one of those outfits. good luck with your final month of pregnancy, ayana. you have so much to look forward to xox

  90. Tara says...

    Definitely used to follow Ayana back on tumblr (lol!). Congrats on your pregnancy!

    • WHAT a throwback! Thank you so much!

  91. I love Ayana’s looks! To be pregnant in Florida in the summertime is no easy feat, but she’s doing it in style. Ayana, if you see this comment, I had terrible nausea while I was pregnant and carried hard candies with me at all times – you aren’t alone. Hang in there and congratulations!

  92. Erin says...

    I love her style!

  93. Sonja says...

    What a gorgeous souls wrapped in a gorgeous body.

  94. Andrea says...

    Very cute! I especially love the jumpsuit.

  95. K says...

    Beautiful!

    I like the concept of body neutrality.
    And I like the dotted jumpsuit.
    Congratulations on the baby.

  96. Oh my gosh. I loved Ayana’s smile and style, so I went to go see who her love is, and OH! MY HEART! Vagner’s Instagram is just a shining testament to their love. Their vibe together is so tender and warm and loving. I hope you’ll keep them in mind next time you have a couples’ series!

  97. Liz says...

    She is so. Freakin. Cute! I wish I looked that good pregnant! Love everything.

  98. Katie says...

    I adore Ayana, she’s a newer IG follow for me and I am just such a fan!

    • Thank you, Katie!

  99. Christina says...

    what a sweet post, i love her style and her thoughts on body neutrality!!! it’s funny, i am 20 weeks pregnant and i think part of how pregnant you look depends on your boobs!! i am basically 100% flat chested, so as soon as the belly started it was already outpacing my boobs and thus, so obvious, ha! also, i totally agree with her on maternity leggings, honestly, i may NEVER turn back, where have maternity panels been all my life?!

    • Courtney says...

      Haha! This was totally my experience. It didn’t take long for my bump to stick out more than my boobs!

    • Savannah says...

      Yes! As an enormous chested mama with a short torso I highly recommend v necks only while pregnant otherwise you go from beer gut to two basketballs resting on a watermelon. I wasn’t pregnant then I WAS TOO PREGNANT the next day!!!

  100. Amanda says...

    Thanks for a week of outfits with more affordable pieces. I love the looks in all of your week of outfits and definitely try to make smarter, more sustainable choices, but lets be honest, that’s not always a financial reality!

    • Yes, I totally agree! It’s so important to find a balance.

  101. Karen says...

    You are gorgeous and I love your style!

    • Thank you, Karen! :)
