Scarves have provided me with an easy way to vamp up and accessorize my maternity wardrobe. While shopping at one of my favorite boutiques in San Clemente, Lincoln Street Boutique (they always have an amazing selection of scarves), the always stylish shop owner showed me this neat way to transform my favorite scarves into a vest or cover-up! Follow these instructions for a quick way to cover-up your favorite swimsuit or add some flair to an everyday look:

Step 1: Using a LARGE scarf, fold in half lengthwise and loosely tie the ends of one corner to form two “bunny ears”.
Step 2: Fold again and pinch a small section of fabric on top of the “bunny ears” to form a third “ear”.
Step 3: You should now have three “bunny ears”, tie the two previous ears tightly over the third to secure – that’s it!
These days, we pregnant women are lucky that loose tops and leggings are always trending and wardrobe staples. However, there comes a time during pregnancy when we must submit to wearing maternity clothes! Since this is my third pregnancy, I have tried and tested just about all of it! I’m extremely picky when it comes to fit, silhouette, comfort, and especially price. Maternity clothes are very expensive, and it kills me to spend a fortune on something that I’ll only be wearing for a few months. Thankfully, retailers such as ASOS and Topshop have created maternity lines that are on-trend and wallet friendly. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite basic pieces that are essential in any pregnant woman’s wardrobe:
1. ASOS Skinny Jeans 2. ASOS Leggings 3. Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf 4. TopShop Fisherman Sweater 5. Topshop Wide Stripe Top 6. Old Navy Jersey Tank 7. Gap Pure Body Short-Sleeve T
These key pieces are my absolute favorite right now! They’re great for lounging around the house and can easily be dressed up by simply adding a fun scarf and ankle boots.
