Pregnancy Fashion, is there such a thing? Well, I don't call myself fashionable but at least, I do know what to wear that makes me feel and look comfortable!
My mom and Mr. AMW expected me to go out and shop for pregnancy clothes the moment I learned I was pregnant! Well, they were wrong! Mr. AMW had to "force" me to shop for clothes as I consistently say "NO" each and every time. (Come on, tell Mr. AMW he's lucky!) *laughs*
I haven't been going out much during my first trimester + first half of second trimester as you probably know by now how much pain I've gone through in terms of morning sickness. It's over..so let me move on! :)
I started going out on dates with friends, family and husband on my fifth month. I haven't bought any single pregnancy outfit then as I can still wear all my loose tops and smartly wear my low waist pants and shorts and use a hair tie as an extension!
Comes 6th month, my belly is starting to show and I can't seem to wear my old bottoms anymore. I logged in Zalora and bought some shorts, jeans and leggings from their Maternity section. Thank goodness they all fit me!
AMW Wears #1
Casual date with the hubby
Casual date with the hubby
For a casual date with the hubby, I wore a simple black tank top inside and my loose Forever 21 knitted top. As for the shorts, I wore my Buntis shorts in medium with adjustable belly band which made my overall outfit even more comfortable. Since I know there will be a whole lot of walking, I've decided to wear "elevated" sandals from SM Parisian as flats could hurt my back with all the walking.

A semi-formal affair
Dresses are great when you're pregnant and I can't thank having some loose dresses inside the dresser when I was asked to be the God mother of my best friend's daughter.
A simple long navy dress from Prima Donna worn with a plain white tube inside. To create a more "formal" vibe, I've decided to wear my simple light pink pearl necklace by SM Accessories. Check out my protruding belly! I don't care! I'm proud of my bump!
Now you understand why I had to wear a white tube inside? The dress is quite sexy with a low cut back and LONG slit! (Okay, didn't show the slit anymore as I'm shy to show my legs) *blushes* :P

Welcoming New Year with Simple Family Lunch
As I wasn't able to shop for any polka-dotted outfit (for luck), I've decided to color block and create a very cheerful vibe on the first day of year 2013! We had a nice lunch with the family and I've decided to visit Lucky Chinatown Mall as it is usually crowded on a regular day! Thank goodness most the people have decided to rest at home so it's my time to walk around the spacious mall!
Since my outer Ever New Orange top is a bit too short and I don't want to expose my huge belly, I've decided to wear my Bossini Yellow sleeveless top underneath and my navy blue shorts because I want to scream HAPPY NEW YEAR without uttering a single word! :)
AMW Wears #4
Meet up with High School Friends
I haven't seen my high school friends for quite some time, the group decided to have a mini get-together. Since my friend would like to see my bump, I've decided to wear my Cinderella top (which was supposed to be a loose blouse) but now, it worked so well as my pregnancy top! This photo was taken on my 6th month of pregnancy and you can literally see how showy Baby AMW is! Paired with my Buntis shorts and a lovely necklace from SM Accessories, everything turned casual with a blushing March Slither Flats.
AMW Wears #5
As I was in a rush for some quick gift-giving, the hubby and I have decided to visit a nearby mall! What's the best mall outfit? My loose Promod striped navy top and a medium sized pregnancy leggings from Gingersnaps! The sandals from The Flat Shop which has a nice support at the curve of my feet is perfect for a comfortable shopping experience!

A Day of Errands
When I'm swamped with errands, it is vital to feel comfortable with the clothes you wear plus to feel "cool". As all pregnancy books would say, a pregnant woman would feel like an oven most of the time, I do feel hot even inside an air-conditioned room so a sleeveless top is what I would wear if I know I have many places to go!
AMW wore Cinderella 1 piece top and Buntis Jeans.
AMW Wears #7
When I know I'm off for a dinner and fulfill my food fantasies, I picked my most comfortable Boyfriend Shirt! The vertical lines can hide the look of a pregnant belly (not that I plan to hide it) but funny how some can't tell that I'm pregnant. (Mukha lang busog!)
AMW Wears #8
Because I have a gig as a makeup trainer at Benefit Philippines, looking at least a tiny bit formal is what I'm aiming for! I wore my long yellow t-shirt top from Greenhills and my navy blue blazer which I bought from KL Malaysia. Simple black pants with stretchable band made my overall look more formal! My favorite gold flats from ShoeBox are comfortable enough for me to stand up for 4 hours!
Overall, my second trimester pregnancy fashion is simple yet comfortable! I am glad I was able to wear my existing clothes and I don't have to spend a lot on pregnancy outfit! As I'm heading to my last trimester, I may be in dire need for some pregnancy clothes as my bulging belly is uncontrollable and seems like Baby Boy AMW is enjoying all the food he can eat!
