Maternity Fashionista: How to Stretch Your Pregnancy Wardrobe (Watch!)

Meet our newest maternity fashionista, Jacqueline Weppner! Hailing from our very own NYC, Jackie is the founder and creative director of Merci New York — a chic, boutique styling house offering fashion, event and prop styling for weddings, special events and editorial projects, “providing chic style for the busy city bride.”

As a first-time mama-to-be, Jackie is finding new ways to stretch her pregnancy wardrobe without spending a fortune! Currently, she’s lovin’ maxi dresses (a maternity must-have!), especially this floral maxi mini from Rosie Pope’s maternity collection. She says it’s “colorful and comfy and I can’t wait to wear it on our babymoon next month!” Jackie says her favorite part of dressing her bump so far has been finding new ways to wear old things (and we couldn’t agree more!). She says, “Dresses have become tunics and scarves (around the neck, belted, layered atop a jacket) are a fun little no-guilt by whenever I go shopping!”

Each week, tune in for Jackie’s tips, tricks and demonstrations on how to make your maternity wardrobe work for you (especially with the summer heat comin’ on strong!). Want to see Jackie’s tips for stretching your maternity wardrobe? Check ‘em out:
