Black Moto Jacket {Fall Style Transitions}

Given my ever-expanding belly, shift dresses have become a wardrobe staple, and now that the air is crisp, it's time to transition those flowy dresses for fall. The trick to shift dresses for both the pregnant and non-pregnant is proportion. This shift is a little too big for me in general, which is comfy for my belly, but that means it needs a short, fitted jacket to give it some definition, proportion and structure.

I picked up the one I'm wearing (and the jacket, actually) secondhand at Secondi. I used to belt every shift I own, nipping them in at the waist to create a waist, essentially. Now, I lose the belt and boom, prego dress.

It's been my preference to avoid almost all maternity wear, not just out of vanity (I hate most of it!), but bc I think it's more eco-friendly to continue to shop for items like the shift in this post that can be worn pre-and post-pregnancy as well. That's also why Hatch Collection is so far the only mama-wear that has appealed to me-- highly recommend checking them out

I can tell this little black moto jacket is going to be a key staple for the final weeks of my pregnancy, but it could certainly be anyone's fall go-to piece!

Last but not least, lest one of these photos fool you, my friends: I am very, very, pregnant.
