Fashion Fridays the Pregnant Mamas Edition: Thyme Maternity is NOW in NYC and to celebrate we are giving away some Goodies!

Congrats to our winner Tannis!

I love my husband; madly desperately and with everything I’ve got. But during both my pregnancies when I was sporting some major cankles and bumps that were not confined to my midsection ( I grew EVERYWHERE and then some) and didn’t feel all that sexy- my loving husband “jokingly referred to me as Vince Lombardi”. For anyone who doesn’t know who this man was suffice it to say he was  of the short, stocky sort- aka- IT WAS NOT A COMPLIMENT.  Not to rationalize his behavior at all- but during my pregnancies my fashion sense was not the best- and I probably dressed like I felt- A LINEBACKER.

Fashion Fridays the Pregnant Mamas Edition: Thyme Maternity GIVEAWAY!

I felt awkward and very uncomfortable in this body which was now home to another living, breathing human and 12 and eight years ago I would have given ANYTHING to sport an outfit that made me feel pretty. Which is why I am ALL OVER the fact that Thyme Maternity is now available at the Babies “R” Us store in Union Square- because even though I might not be preggers- those who are sporting baby bumps should NEVER EVER FEEL or dress like Vince Lomdardi. To celebrate, Thyme Maternity is running a special promotion for shoppers to enjoy 40% off their entire purchase, including new summer styles through the August 1st!

Thyme Maternity’s summer styles are perfect for the fashion forward New York mom-to-be as it offers both fashionable and comfortable maternity styles from casual to work, plus a complete line of nursing tops and accessories for the transition period after baby is born.  Check out one of our new styles we love to keep moms-to-be trendy even in the summer heat now 40% off!

All the Moms to-be have said they love our Thyme Maternity Sleeveless U-Neck Top With Keyhole.  This trendy U-neck style looks great on its own or under a blazer for those cool summer nights.

    I don’t have many clothes because money is tight, but I did find a good sale at Gap Maternity and was able to buy some shirts and dresses so that when I go back to teaching for the month prior to due date I can feel comfortable. I am wearing some now, but they have room for me to grow.

    I didn’t try to hide my bump. I bought a few “dresses” that were short enough for me to wear as tunic tops. I never had to worry about the shirt riding up. I guess my best beauty advice would be pick out what you would feel comfortable to go out around the town in. An outfit can be dressed up or down with accessories so I didn’t worry about finding special outfits. (My third trimester fell during the holidays.)
