Dressing the Bump / Fall Outfits

Alright guys, this is my last pre-baby episode of Dressing the Bump! We're at 36 weeks and talking about how to layer for fall with blazers, jackets, sweater dresses, and long-sleeve rompers. 

These videos have been really fun to make for you, and it's also challenged me to really celebrate that bump while pregnant. I hope you'll share this series with your sisters, friends, and co-workers who are expecting! I have one last post-baby bump video coming after our little lady arrives and will cover that "post-baby bump" as well as some great pieces to wear while nursing.

You can find all sources for the clothing worn in this video below…

  1. Joy love the series. And when you held the letter “C” with that smirk on your face, i thought it was a hint for a name maybe?

  2. Adorable! I wish it would cool off a bit more here in LA so we could really take advantage of Fall. Congrats on your little one. I am a few weeks behind you 😉

  3. So adorable! And so well done, as always. I have a question. Did you hold up the “c” as a nod to your last name, or a hint to your new little girl’s name? 🙂 Or, I could be overanalyzing, but I know us detailed folks rarely do something like that randomly.

  4. I adore the chambray jumpsuit! Perfect for before and after baby. And how cute is Ruby in the Kate Spade x babyGap shades?! I’m excited to see how stylish the next Cho cutie will be 🙂

  5. I’ve loved watching your dress-the-bump videos and wanted to thank you and wish you luck with your second little lady. We’re expecting our first (a little boy) in February and I have benefited so much from the research you’ve done. Lots of love!

  6. Cute outfits – the layered looks are great!
    Question – I had to pee all the time at the end of my pregnancy. How would you work that out with a romper? Is there some hidden zipper that no one would be the wiser to?

  7. These videos are so great! I love all of your shoe choices. My feet have been swollen for a few months now and I wear 1 shoe size bigger :(. I’m trying to avoid buying too many new shoes in hopes that my feet return to their pre-pregnancy size, but a pair of fall booties might be a must do!

  8. Can’t wait for post baby and nursing style tips! Struggling here as a new mom… Wishing you a healthy and smooth delivery!

  9. Thanks Joy! I’ve enjoyed the series as we are also expecting a little girl this coming winter, in fact we used oh joy target for our baby announcement! I was wondering for the anthropology romper, did you have to go a up a size to fit your belly, or did you wear your normal size? Was thinking of ordering it to wear for our baby shower 😉

  10. Hi Karen,
    Thanks so much! Congrats on your baby to be!
    I wore my normal size. Normally rompers are worn sort of blouse-y so that allows room for the belly in your regular size.
    Hope that helps!

  11. I love the outfits though I’m not currently pregnant. I do have a little one and can’t wait to hear from you in the future about what to wear for kids. They grow up so quickly and they outgrow clothing extremely fast. Anyway, I did have a question about outfit#1. Where did you get the booties? I love them.

  12. Joy you are amazing and now that I am joying the New Mum club (week 35) I absolutely love all your posts about Motherhood. I am sharing your blog with all the Mums out there.
