Pregnancy Fashion Fix

Yayy!! The sale season is here. Favourite brands, best stores, the biggest discounts…we know that feeling right? So I started making a mental list of what I may need-  regular wear kurtis, some blingy stuff for the festivals and shaadis, the perfect white shirt that I am forever craving for, and a sexy stilletoe to kill the weekend look …I giggled.

But wait… am I not pregnant??!! Whoosshhh, went the list down the drain.

During those 9 months while I was happy fat cat while my dumpling grew inside me, and punched in her cute kicks, I cannot deny those bouts of despair when I stood in front of my cupboard longingly staring at my clothes. The Jaipur ka jacket, the black kurta with a perfect fit, the Vero Moda top for special days and even that pompom juti … I grew out of them all. As pregnancy progressed, my repertoire of clothes went on a steady  downhill graph… and trust me it was not a good feeling.

I wanted to dress up like I usually love doing. And why not? Being pregnant never meant I had to give up everything that I loved doing and ending up being AUNTY ACID! I wanted to go out, watch sunsets at the Ganges, catch a movie or two, visit my favourite ice cream parlour…and in style 🙂

I had to find a fix. It was then that Pantrobes entered my life and became my best friend. Throw them upon a top or a kurti, pair them with your jeans or leggings-they would just effortlessly be that instant fix. Contemporary, comfortable and practical, they became the Holy Grail of my pregnancy wardrobe.

Easy pointers for rocking bumpfashion
