Gearing up for Fall with White Plum {Giveaway}

by Meghann on September 17, 2015

This post is sponsored by White Plum.

As this pregnancy comes to an end, I can honestly say without a doubt that I am happy to be done dressing this bump. Being pregnant during the summer had its perks (cooling off at the beach and swimming in my pool to name a couple), but the wardrobe selection was limiting. Let’s just say I’m a tad tired of tank tops that no longer cover the bump and flowy skirts that have worn out their welcome (if I never see a flowy skirt again, it will be too soon).

Peace out, summer! I can’t say I’m going to miss you (just yet).

However, I am a bit sad I won’t be able to transition to fall or winter weather with the bump. A change of seasons could be fun and a very welcomed change. In fact, when White Plum reached out to send some items for a review this month I purposely selected some fun fall gear just to mix it up a bit. I’m tired of dresses and shorts – bring on leggings and tunics!

First up: the Favorite Tunic in plum paired with the Chevron Digital Leggings


The great thing about both of these pieces is I can continue to wear them once the baby arrives. I have another tunic from White Plum that I wore last fall/winter that is really loose (well, used to be) and extremely comfortable for days you just need something to lounge in. The chevron leggings are actually really light and stretchy. They’re one-size-fits all, so they’ll be a great transition piece as my body begins to readjust after birth.

Second: the Pinecrest Vest


I LOVE a good vest. Especially puffy vests with fun patterns that pair well with classic cotton tees and leggings (can you tell how excited I am for legging season?!). This vest is the perfect casual piece for the mild Florida winters. Now we just need the temps to start dropping so I can start wearing it!

I definitely love when the humidity cools off in the fall. Then I can blow dry my hair in the morning without sweating to death! Also, I LOVE that vest. I might (WILL) have to get one for myself. So cute!

Love fall fashion! Just got a new pair of boots, so obviously need some new clothes to go with ’em πŸ™‚

37 Jess September 17, 2015 at 12:59 pm

You look WAY better in those clothes than what you were wearing this summer. I hate to be a bag, but honestly you look so much cuter when you choose clothes that fit properly and flatter your figure rather than trying to squeeze into pre-pregnancy clothes that only highlight lumps and awkward panty and bra lines. It was making you look bigger and more uncomfortable than you probably are. Honestly, if I were you, I’d retake those maternity pics wearing one of these outfits instead. You look so much better! Hopefully this new season (weather and new season in your life) will help you change your wardrobe to something simple and flattering and age appropriate. Good luck!

38 Michelle September 18, 2015 at 3:39 pm

Run, do not walk, to therapy. You need to look deep within yourself and figure out why you are so hateful and so cruel to another woman. Women like you are everything that is wrong with the world.

Body shaming another woman is never cool. But there’s something incredibly low about body shaming someone who is pregnant.

You should be ashamed of yourself and I really was serious when I suggested therapy.

i love the leggings & tunic you are wearing in the top picture (you look so cute & comfy). How did you figure out a size for your belly? I love my leggings from there last year but I’m 19 weeks pregnant now & don’t know what to order so I can wear it as the belly grows.
