Mamas, meet Melissa, one of the most adorable (thrice!) pregnant mamas I've ever seen (excuse the image quality, we just couldn't work out a better shot, but it would have been a travesty not to share Melissa's perfect, easy, affordable style).  She writes:
Hi ladies,
Honestly, I can't believe I'm submitting a picture of myself…but alas, here it is.  This was a super simple and inexpensive outfit…and after having 2 kiddos with my 3rd baby just 5 weeks away, I'm desperate to get through these last 5 weeks and still manage to look put together.  I wore this outfit this past weekend with my hubby for our monthly 'date night'.  I got a lot of compliments on it so I thought maybe another pregnant lady could use a pick me up!!
Poncho and boots- Tarjay (Target to some people :))
Jeggings- Old Navy maternity
Bag- Old Navy
I love your blog and I am so thankful I found it…keep on keepin on!!!
– Melissa
Melissa's rocking a number of ANMJ's favs for moms–skinny jeans, tall boots, and a belly/postpartum pooch/nursing-friendly poncho, topping it all off with understated, spot-on accessories.  I love how her copper/gold cuff bracelet ties into the zippers on her fab riding boots, and the tassel on her bag keys in on the fringe trend, lending a toned-down Boho vibe.

Seriously, Melissa, if you look that good pregnant, you should just keep on have babies.  Thanks for sharing your rad mama style!

  1. Love this! So classy, so easy to replicate! Great for post-partum too. Anyone found great maternity skinny jeans? I am starting the hunt.

  2. Holly, I’m a fan of the Old Navy maternity “jeggings”. Which I think is what Melissa is wearing above. They’re soft and stretchy and don’t bag out too quickly, and also come in black. Can’t go wrong for $25(ish)!

  3. I love this outfit, too. I’m pregnant and just picked up a cute army green wool poncho at a used clothing store. I was a bit worried I would look too tent-like in it but this picture definitely inspired me to start wearing it!

  4. Hey! Well, a few months later and I’m still rockin the poncho for that post-baby pooch that we all love so much! Cecilia Rose was born on 11/3/12 and she loved reading your blog with me during our morning snuggles in bed! Love your blog!
