The best personal fashion blogs are the ones that act as individual diaries with a mix of beautiful imagery and authentic commentary. For us spectators, it means that we are following our fave bloggers’ style, as well as their personal lives, which evolve and change as fast as trends. Santa Barbara-based blogger Samantha Wennerstrom caught our attention a while ago, thanks to her urban, modern SoCal style (her red locks make her stand out!). Now that she’s pregnant, we thought, who better to give us a stylish perspective on baby-bump dressing than the Could I Have That blogger herself? She also made it a point to show us how she’s transitioning from summer to fall, and we are already taking note and adding many of the items she picked into MyNM favorites.
Now, moms-to-be, tell us how you’re dressing yourself in style this season in the comments.
Le Dix Backpack
Nothing weighs me down more than a heavy tote bag. With baby on the way, being hands-free sounds like a good plan, and this backpack is tres chic.
18k Black Gold & Pave Black Diamond Micro Bangle
Lately I can't seem to get enough of black diamond pieces. I love this simple bangle to ease into fall with.
Milano Paneled Long Jacket and Brushed Fuzzy Knit Sweater
I've had my eye on this Chloe jacket for a while now! Everything about it is perfect for an expecting mama in the fall.
Sleeveless Eyelet & Lace Maxi Dress
Nothing is sweeter for late summer days than a crisp, white lacy dress. This one has a high waistline perfect for showing off a baby bump.
Norah Elastic Leather Sandal
Black sandals are an Indian summer must, since you can take them right into fall. I wear mine with just about everything until the weather forces me to switch it up.
Feather-Print Chiffon Blouse
Dressing for late summer days is all about bringing a touch of black back into the mix and choosing the right layers. I love this top because it still has a flowy touch to it, but can be worn with a great leather jacket when the weather turns.
Cluster Oversized Leather Moto Jacket
If there's one thing I rely on for transitioning into fall, it's a leather jacket. I love how oversized this Helmut Lang one is, and the belt is perfect for adding a different type of volume and shape, pre- and post- pregnancy.
Andy Warhol Donkey Cars Tailored Fabric Set
Aside from dressing myself, I've been planning how to be a stylish mom this coming fall. And one thing that I've been on the hunt for is a great stroller. I love the playful pattern on this one.
Long Lasting Concealer
New moms are always telling me to find a good concealer. So in my efforts to prep for sleepless nights, I've done some research on finding the best concealers that are out there. My top pick is the Chanel Correcteur Perfection.
Sun Protection Lip Treatment SPF 36
The best lip protector for sunny days. Nothing drives me crazier than forgetting this favorite when I hit the beach.
