Not all superheroes wear capes - here’s looking at you, #girlboss.
Amidst the madness & hustle of daily life, there’s a bit of relief one looks forward to at the end of the day - coming home to family. And when you’re starting your very own family, there’s really nothing like it! Excitement, anticipation, joy, nervousness all tangled up in a ball of emotions - and that’s only one part of it.
Times have certainly changed since our mothers were pregnant. Glass ceilings shattered, equality expected & demanded… it’s a great time to be a working woman in this modern age. From advancements in technology to advancements in style, pregnancy is all about owning that glorious bump.
Today, being pregnant & working at the same time doesn’t raise any eyebrows - in fact, why would anyone want to halt their stride for something that’s a natural part of life? Pregnant working women are a common sight these days, with companies offering comforts like never before. However, though, there’s a grouse - what exactly should a pregnant woman wear to work?
Never you worry, we’ve got a quick guide made just for you!
Ah, those early, heady days of pregnancy! Smiling for no reason, daydreaming what life’s going to be like...and realising that your body is going to go through a lot of changes!
During the first trimester, the baby grows the most - which might account for that morning sickness. From physical changes such as soreness to emotional changes, there’s quite a lot on your plate, apart from work & home. At this point of time, you’re not really showing as much, so your maternity style can be just inspired by your regular style. With online shopping making maternity work wear so attainable, you’re just a hop, skip and jump away.
The easy breezy Alexi Shirt Dress is a no-fuss work to chill dress. Crafted from breathable cotton, it’s soft blue hue and button detailing looks professional yet laid-back, allowing for greater movement. Plus, it can be dressed up or down with your accessories - and you don’t need to think much when you throw it on in the morning!
With the second trimester rolling in, you might be thinking of how you’d like your maternity leave to pan out, while finishing & assigning your projects at the same time. Your home needs to be designed for the baby, and now you’re going to start showing - there’s a lot happening but it’s nothing you can’t be on top of.
This is the time that your pregnancy bump starts becoming more prominent - and you need to celebrate that. Though comfort is key, stylish maternity wear is here to save the day.
