Jessica Quarello’s Pregnancy Style

Bump envy!

Name: Jessica Quarello
Neighborhood: Flatiron
Occupation: Marketing Manager & Blogger

Baby’s Sex: Baby girl!

How would you describe your pregnant style?
My style has sort of evolved throughout this pregnancy. I have always loved to embrace trends and have a fashionable approach to dressing, which was a bit of a challenge with a large round belly. (bye bye high waisted jeans and crop tops!) I found myself gravitating toward less trendy items and stocking my closet with classic pieces I could mix and match.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy? 
Yes! My body has changed so much throughout my pregnancy. I would be able to wear something one day and not even able to zip it a month later. Options with a bit of stretch in the material proved to be the most foolproof, and I found myself embracing the bump in a lot of body conscious options.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?
The physical transformation and challenges your body goes through. I obviously knew my body was going to change once I got pregnant, but I had no idea to what extent. I have had a lot of physical challenges like back and rib pain, and now swollen feet! All the challenges will of course be worth it, but I have to admit I wasn’t expecting them!

What are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?
Oh gosh everything! I just can’t wait to have her in my arms and share everything I know with her. I guess if I had to pick one thing, it would be music. Before I started my career in fashion and marketing, I was a singer/actor in NYC. I am currently working on a lullaby demo for baby girl, and I can’t wait to sing to her and hopefully instill a love of music within her too.

What’s your top 5 registry essentials?
Well since I haven’t had my baby quite yet, I am in no way an expert, but these are the 5 items I am most excited about and heard the best reviews on:

Fisher Price Rock and Play
Bugaboo Cameleon
Baby Bjorn Travel Crib
Totesavvy diaper bag insert
BabyZen Travel Stroller
