Maternity Outfit Second Trimester
I’ve been showing a lot faster with this pregnancy than with my first. Although I’m only 19 weeks, I’ve been wearing maternity clothes for awhile now. In this post, I’m showing a favorite maternity outfit for second trimester.
My first pregnancy was 3 years ago. My style and body have changed quite a bit since then. Plus, my first baby was due in January, whereas this baby is due in July. Completely opposite seasons! So, although I saved my maternity clothes from my first pregnancy, most of them don’t fit my needs anymore. So, I’ve recently been trying to pick up some stylish, yet budget-friendly, maternity clothes.
Maternity jeans were one item I definitely couldn’t reuse from my last pregnancy. I didn’t realize how much denim trends had changed in the past 3 years until I pulled out my last maternity jeans! It was like a blast from the past.
So far, I’ve only bought one pair of jeans for this pregnancy. Let’s face it, I pretty much live in leggings anyway. For the days when I need to step it up, these maternity jeans from Target are just the thing. They’re comfortable, stylish, and affordable. The skinny leg is perfect for tucking into boots. Plus, I didn’t even need to have them altered. That’s a huge deal for a shortie like me.
These over-the-knee wedge boots are also from Target. And currently on clearance! I love wedge boots because they give you the height of a heel without the feeling that you’re going to fall over. These are the kind of factors you don’t think about until you’re trying to keep up with a 2-year-old every day. These particular boots are very comfortable, too. I can wear them all day without issue. Even as part of a second trimester maternity outfit!
I love the polka dot mesh detail on this shirt. The sheer sleeves and necklace make the shirt a good seasonal transition piece. Plus, they make me feel pretty! A lot of maternity clothes are quite basic, so I appreciate when designers add little details to make mamas-to-be feel more beautiful. I picked this top up on clearance at H&M, and an exact match doesn’t appear to be available anymore. They are selling a short-sleeve pink version now. If you prefer the long-sleeve look, they are offering a similar black shirt with sheer sleeves and a white blouse with lace sleeves.
My little man wanted in on the photo action. Until he saw a bird, anyway. Then, he was gone!
My headband was a Christmas gift, so I’m not sure where it is from. Amazon has several similar ones, like this gold beauty. I think a headband is an easy way to dress up an outfit without much effort. Which is my favorite way to do, well, basically everything.
There you have it, a maternity outfit for second trimester!
We find out next week if this sweet little baby is a boy or girl! I’m counting down the days. Leave your guesses in the comments! For the record, I’m thinking boy… for now. I’ve changed my mind too many times to count during this pregnancy. Completely different than when I was pregnant with Colton. From the day I found out I was pregnant, I knew he was a boy. This little one is keeping me guessing!
Don’t forget to pin this Maternity Outfit Second Trimester post for future shopping!
What is your favorite maternity style advice? And, more importantly, do you think this little one will be a boy or girl?
So cute! Love the pictures!
Thank you, Sam! 🙂
Congratulations! Love the pictures and the post! I am guessing girl! 🙂
Thank you! We will find out next week!
I love your maternity style! You look great!

That is so sweet, Belle! Thank you so much!
I love Target for maternity clothes! It’s where almost all of mine came from. Cute and affordable!
Mine too! I’m actually wearing a different Target maternity outfit today. Haha 🙂
Super cute! You’re adorable! ❤ Girl!
Thank you so much, Alex! I appreciate it!
So cute!I wore jeans when I was pregnant more than I do now -they’re so comfortable. 🙂
Maternity jeans are the best! I was so disappointed after my son was born and I had to go back to wearing pants that actually buttoned!
You look s cute in your outfit. The mesh detail in that top is so great. Good luck at your appt finding out what your bundle of joy is. 🙂
Thank you, Annette! I hope Baby is cooperative! We’re anxious to find out!
Pregnancy looks good on you. Beautiful outfit too. Best wishes to you through your pregnancy
Thanks so much, Stephenie! I’ve been feeling better lately, so hopefully the second half of this pregnancy isn’t too brutal. 😉
Great options for maternity wear. These days the clothes are so much more stylish. Thanks for sharing.
Maternity clothes have come a long way even in the last few years! It’s crazy to see the differences from my first pregnancy.
Looking great mama!! Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy 🙂
Thank you, April! Hopefully the second half of this pregnancy goes by quickly! 🙂
You look beautiful mama! I am loving the boots. Best wishes to you!
Thanks so much, Jennifer! These are my first over-the-knee boots. I think I might have to pick up some more next year!
I love that shirt!
Thank you, Vicki! I couldn’t believe I found it on clearance. I get some lucky finds once in awhile!
Doing a bit of research for a friend of mine and found your article. Thanks for sharing your journey and ideas. This is very helpful! I am thinking boy. Look forward to finding out. exciting!
Thank you, Neil! We will find out this week! So exciting!
What a great outfit, it doesn’t even look “maternityish” (I made a new word. LOL) Back in my pregnant days (my youngest is 42 years old) the fashion was smocks that were gathered from the bust down and jeans weren’t even in the picture! I love your jeans! Your little man is adorable and I’m sure he will be a big help when new baby arrives.
Oh man, I can’t imagine going through pregnancy without jeans! Although I do enjoy some nice flowy dresses, too. 🙂
You look amazing! They make maternity clothes so cute now!
Maternity clothes have come a long way, that’s for sure! Thanks for the kind words, Stephanie.
You look beautiful and I love the outfit! I remember being pregnant and all I wanted to do was wear yoga pants and big t shits. It was hard to want to get all cute when you felt big and frumpy! My next pregnancy my goal is to really focus on feeling good about myself and finding cute clothes to help me do that!
I completely understand! I have a couple men’s XL tees that are staples of my pregnancy wardrobe. My husband just rolls his eyes 😉
Cute maternity outfits. I think when that time comes for me I’ll be living in leggings and dresses as well unless absolutely necessary lol. I think its a girl! Cute baby bump though. Wish you a successful delivery!
Thanks so much, Shevy! My last delivery was pretty traumatic, so I’m hoping for a much smoother experience this time around!
How cute is this outfit?! Almost makes me want to be pregnant again! 😛
That’s so sweet, Amanda! Thank you!
You are adorable! I LOVE those boots…I’ve been wanting some OTK boots for a while! Also, holy cow…I just had my daughter last April and in less than a year the jeans look different! Seriously though, I LOVED maternity clothes. Nothing was better than being able to just let it all hang out there! I love all of mine and secretly can’t wait to wear them all again LMAO!
I definitely love the comfort factor of maternity clothes! There’s nothing quite like a stretchy waistband 🙂
Love the maternity outfit! I too stuck with 1 pair of maternity jeans for my last pregnancy. Legging = life!!
You’re a girl after my own heart, Emily!
Cute! I love the polka dots too!
Thank you, Elizabeth! I’ve been buying lots of polka dots lately. They’re so fun!
You are absolutely darling hot mama! I LOVE that shirt on you!
You are too sweet, Jane! Thank you!
Yay! We are both due in July! LOVE that outfit!
Congratulations, Krista! That’s so exciting!
You look so cute!! Seeing pregnant women makes me miss it…my baby is already about to be 6 months old!
Aww, I love that age! It is so fun when they’re able to start being more interactive and understanding more of their world. 🙂
Very nice! Love the look! You are so cute with your little belly. I sometimes miss being pregnant. I loved dressing up my bump. Congrats to you and your family!
Thank you, Stanna! I like dressing my little bump too. It’s nice once it turns into an actual bump and not just bloating! Haha
Great outfit, I think I had the same top and wore it a lot! Loved my maternity jeans and a couple of really flattering maternity tops from H&M. I’m feeling…. boy! x
H&M is awesome! I love shopping there pregnant or not!
I love this outfit and LOVED Target for maternity clothes, especially tank tops and workout clothes. When I was pregnant last year, comfort was key because I was also a stay at home mom to my son. You’ll love being pregnant in the summer- swimming feels great and you can be comfortable without real shoes on! MY guess is a girl 🙂
I was just telling my husband that I can’t wait to go swimming this summer! I’m excited to experience a summer pregnancy because then I will have had both extremes. It was snowing when my son was delivered! That won’t be the case this time 😉
love this outfit! the boots are super cute!
Thank you, Jasmine! Boots are a staple for me!
i love mixing brown and black! you look so beautiful mama!
Thank you, Lindsay! I actually don’t mix them too often so I was a little self-conscious about it. I feel like it’s much more mainstream now, though.
You’re looking amazing. Good job mama. Plus I absolutely love those boots.
Thank you so much, Luz! You have awesome style yourself! 🙂
You look so adorable mama!! I’m just a few weeks ahead of you and love the style inspiration!
That’s awesome! Congrats! 🙂
Such a cute and stylish outfit! I lived in leggings and tshirts this last pregnancy!
I live in leggings whether I’m pregnant or not! 😉
I miss maternity jeans. They’re the best! You look great, Mama!!
Thanks so much, Sam! I definitely miss the comfy waistbands when I’m not pregnant. Haha 🙂
first of all, you look great pregnant!
during my first pregnancy, I did not buy any maternity clothes except for one maternity pants because I had the delusion that post birth, my body will just spring back to its pre-baby shape. i’m pregnant now with my second baby and I learned my lesson well. i’m more partial to dresses which I can wear even after giving birth. I’ve also invested in maternity pants because those things can hold up your wobbly bits after giving birth and give you the illusion of being non wobbly
I totally understand. I was so disappointed leaving the hospital and still looking pregnant!
You look beautiful! I love that maternity outfit. I only had my baby 4 months ago so I’m newly out of my maternity clothes, but I lived in maternity leggings! I still wear them with certain tops/dresses cuz they’re so darn comfy and stretchy =)
Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy! And I’m betting on a girl!
I had a few maternity tops that I wore even after my son was born. The clothes are so comfy that it’s hard to go back!
There are so many cute and stylish maternity clothing options. I love what you picked out! I pretty much lived in my maternity leggings during my pregnancies. Pure heaven.
Maternity leggings are the best “pants” ever invented, period. 🙂
I’m absolutely loving how you dress your baby bump!
That’s so sweet, Rachel! Thank you! 🙂
It is so nice that there are so many more options to choose from with maternity fashion now! this looks beautiful on you!
Thank you very much, Suzy! Maternity fashion has definitely come a long way, even in the 3 years since my last pregnancy. It’s crazy!
You look amazing! Love this outfit – the sheer sleeves are a winner for me, and they match the jeans and the boots perfectly!
Thanks so much, Fi! I love the sheer details on this top. 🙂
Great outfit. Hopefully you will have a girl so that you will have one of each. Have you tried shopping for maternity clothes from resale shops? It is a great way to save money.
Thank you, J! We are having a girl next time and we are very excited! There used to be a great maternity resale shop not too far away, but they closed during my last pregnancy. I was able to score some great deals during their going out of business sale, though!
Amazing outfit. Perfect match . Such a beautiful outfit. Thanks for sharing these options.
Thank you, Abhishek! I like sharing style options with my readers!
