pregnancy survival guide


I have been asked what things have helped me survive pregnancy. I have loved every minute, even the painful bits, and even though it's not over, below is what has gotten be to the 9+ month mark.

pregnancy survival guide


  • anything from Hatch. - Yes, some of the clothing is a bit pricey, but I have lived in these striped tops, I worn this dress until it became too short (I now wear it with leggings) and a couple of dresses got me feeling beautiful for festivities and date nights. {If you shop from here, the return policy is a bit more lenient). 
  • Gapfit Maternity leggings -so comfortable! I got my regular size and they have worked from 4 months to 10 months. As I am a strong proponent of working out through pregnancy, I was also pleasantly surprised that my favorite Lululemon tank has worked throughout my pregnancy in my normal size. It is plenty long to cover your bump throughout pregnancy. 
  • New lip gloss  - when I was feeling gross/fat/tired a new lip gloss (in Chihuahua) made me feel better
  • Havianans - with the hardwood flooring and tile in our home and working 12 hour shifts at the hospital until 7 months, the padding and non restrictions of these comfy flip-flops saved my feet.
  • TopShop Maternity - amazing price points and great styles. I could not recommend this more to any expecting mom. Also, their non maternity one pieces {LOVE this one}, in a size up worked perfectly from about 3 to 6 months, then I went to their maternity one piece. 
  • DryBar Blow drys - a great way to relax and look great for date night with the Dad to be. Plus, I love their products, and found a new favorite at this week's blow dry, which I know will be very helpful for after.
  • J.Crew Maternity jeans -  As I have recounted in multiple posts, the white maternity denim was a complete lifesaver. I ordered my normal size and they worked from 4 months until birth. They made pregnancy outfits seem more pulled together while staying on trend.

black full midi skirt

 {Monique Lhuiller look}

Ever since spotting this budget friendly black full skirt {for $39!}, I have thinking how fun it would be paired with just about anything in your closet for alternative holiday look.    {I was hoping of wearing something like this for the start of the holiday celebrations, but our Little Angel has not made her appearance yet, so I might be wearing a hospital gown or some of the yummy cashmere that just barely covers the bump.} I also love this one that is wildly similar to the Monique Lhuiller options pictured above. 

Shop similar skirts and white tops below to recreate the look at a fraction of the cost.

LIKE to KNOW: IT


As many of you know, and those of you that follow along on Instagram, you can easily shop most of my photos. While I try to have the blog and my other social media coordinate, sometimes I share things on Instagram that simply does not make it to the blog {for example, while I posted about my fabulous rockstud purchase two months ago, I have not done an outfit post and thus they have not have had their blog debut}. 

By registering at www.LiketoKnow.it once, you can shop all your favorite blogger's instagrams by simply "liking" their photos or by visiting their Like to Know: It page. {Ours is liketoknow.it/navyandorange}. Within minutes, you will receive an email that looks like one of the images below with direct links to products featured in the photo. While often, items sell out or or no longer available, it is best practice to have links to similar products that will satisfy your shopping urge. 

If you haven't already, join Like to Know:It. I promise you won't be disappointed.
