How would you describe your pregnant style?
Easy & Comfortable
Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?
My biggest challenge is prying myself away from black leggings. They are such a comfortable and easy go-to but aren’t always the most appropriate. I learned there are many alternatives that are just as easy and look more sophisticated.
So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
How much stamina you can have while pregnant. My first pregnancy I was in bed by 9pm and took as many naps as possible. But this time around has been very different, between my 2 1/2 year old and full-time job that require travel and long hours, I have definitely tested my boundaries. It is truly impressive how amazing the human body is when it needs to step up. I hope I am singing the same tune when baby number two arrives!
What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?
I learned about HATCH via WRNY and their clothes are amazing. I look forward to wearing them post pregnancy too. I also like ASOS for summer dresses – they are affordable and wash really well.
What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
My daughter, Daisy, is playground obsessed and NYC has some of the best. I look forward to “the girls” going on playground adventures together. I can’t wait to take them to see the Rockettes and the Nutcracker.
