Last fall I decided to make my own personal style a priority, I wanted to turn my eye for detail on my shoots back onto myself. I gave myself a bit of the glam treatment and I’m happy to report that not only was it was fun and easy, I looked amazing. I even had pictures taken and blogged about it, details here.
Then I got pregnant. My breasts grew a cup size a week. My belly played catch up for months as I adjusted my look. At first I opened my jeans button, then slowly wore the zipper open halfway, then the full zipper open, and eventually I bought real maternity jeans with elastic paneling. I emerged last month to a new season and a totally new body, and I needed help!
Your Soul Style A Place For Inspiration, not Aspiration
I had been Instagram stalking Jenny Greenstein, of Your Soul Style for months. I connected immediately to her empowering philosophy, in her words “in order to achieve maximum potential, mind and body must coexist in harmony. My goal is to bring you back to your core, your roots. The seed of which all confidence, self-worth and expression grow – YOUR SOUL. I cover fashion, style tips, lifestyle, travel, emotional health and wellness, while always returning to the foundation that feeling your best lies in being true to yourself. Both my blog and style coaching services stand behind the same philosophy: Your Soul Style is a place for inspiration, not aspiration. I empower you to find your OWN rhythm, become your OWN stylemaker and be the most beautiful version of YOU”.
To my stalking delight Jenny announced her pregnancy on instagram and I was a month behind her. In the darkness of winter (and all day morning sickness) I now had a newfound purpose. I was going to learn everything from her blog and rock the shit out of my bump come daylight savings! Well, I bought a few new pieces as needed but I was still had trouble putting everything together. My body is changing every single day, it’s the most exciting time of my life and it’s awkward as can be! I wanted personal help from Jenny to look my best, and get me through what’s likely to be one big fabulous hot summer.
3 Tips For Dressing Your Best Throughout Your Pregnancy
To my delight Jenny is even more awesome in person than I could have imagined from her online persona. I felt immediately comfortable being myself and being vulnerable with her. These days I’m all at once equal parts ecstatic, and an inch away from an emotional hormonal collapse- not everyone gets that. Jenny totally gets it. I feel like she took all of me into account and helped me create a style that feels uniquely mine! She generously offered to make this video and share her top tips with you too:
