Five tips for styling your bump for the Holidays

Featuring my new HAPP brand diaper bag

Today I’m sharing some looks I put together with a few new and old items to style my 37 week bump for the Holidays! I know I won’t be pregnant anymore when that time comes, but so many of you are so this post is for you, plus a lot of what I am wearing can be worn or create similar outfits without a bump.

How to Style

  1. Keep it simple. I’ve said this in just about every family photo post I’ve written in the last few weeks. Gather items you already have first.. then look at what you could add to your outfit and go from there. This will help you save time and money and aimlessly looking at stuff you may or may not need!

  2. Layering is great for the Holidays, not only to hide that Holiday pouch lol but it’s nice to have the option to put more layers on or take them off when your out at gatherings. You never want to be that one in that super cute sweater, but it’s ungodly itchy and you didn’t wear anything under it so you can’t enjoy your time because all you’re thinking about is taking it off!

  3. Dress yourself first! Get yourself ready first. Sure, you can set out everyones outfits before you leave for a Holiday get together, but I know as a mom I struggle with getting everyone ready and then leave myself like 5 minutes to put myself together and I feel rushed and not pretty at all. If you get yourself ready first, even if you don’t get dressed you will at least be ready for when the time comes to get dressed and walk out the door!

  4. Plan ahead. Don’t expect to just pick out your outfits the day of Christmas or whatever event you’re going to and think you won’t be stressed out by that. YOU WILL FOR SURE BE STRESSED OUT! Especially because us as women need like an hour to try and retry our outfits on to be sure we feel good and look our very best! Start thinking about what your family will wear, if it’s important to you, and start setting those items aside and then order a few new items or pieces to complete the look!

  5. Lastly, go prepared! I know for me, we will have 3 kids 3 and under so I will for sure be packing my diaper bag full of snacks, bottles, small toys for them to play with, blankies, and pajamas for when we have long drives home or we’re out too late!


    One thing I love about our HAPP brand diaper bag is how much it fits in it, yet how stylish and functional it is. I love that it’s a backpack, so I’m not drug down by one side and it’s flopping all over and hitting my legs. I also like how sleek it is, it’s not only super cute for me to carry but Jay doesn’t mind carrying it either. It’s easy to wipe down, and for me since I have the black color it hides dirt and grime nicely! The gold zippers are just my style and I like that it has a full zipper to close off the top so nothing can fall out. It has many compartments and pocket holders to place bottles in and all of that extra Holiday stuff we’ll be bringing along!

Thank you HAPP brand for the beautiful diaper bag! I am excited to use it this Holiday season as it pairs nicely with everything and is the perfect addition to my Holiday looks. They have so many options for you shop for and the best part is they can all double as just a bag if you don’t need it as a diaper bag anymore! You can shop my exact diaper bag HERE. I hope you enjoyed today’s post and got some fun ideas for the Holidays that are just around the corner! This backpack would also make the perfect Christmas gift, or baby shower gift for those special mamas that are due around the most wonderful time of the year!
