One nice thing about getting pregnant is not having to worry about the number on the scale. I still check mine here every couple of weeks to see how many kilos I’ve gained (15+), which is a little misleading because then I need to multiply it by about 2 to see it in pounds. Some mornings I wake up ready to hop out of bed, and then I slowly roll over and catch a glimpse of myself walking by the mirror and think, ‘Wow, I look like a penguin.’
Pregnant or not, sometimes you want to get dressed up and feel your best in a style that is classy, but still comfy. Last week, I stopped by the beautiful new luxury hotel in Zurich called The Kameha Grand which just opened and will have Savvy Sleepers on their official pillow menu. Here’s a few of my new style secrets to feel look and feel slimmer in seconds…
<Faux Tan – Yes, I’m a huge fan of Fake Bake and and it adds a glow that can instantly shave off pounds. I applied a layer of Fake Bake 60 Minutes just before these pics which you can easily do with an all-black outfit>
<Keep it Basic in Black & White - We all know black is slimming and if you’re mixing different pieces, just make sure the materials or textures go well together so one doesn’t look faded. Also, adding white accessories or heels can add a fresh, yet classic feel>
<Pregnancy Style Sidenote – This black H&M pregnancy dress was too short to wear by itself, so I wore an old Forever21 lace skirt (thankfully with an elastic waist) under to look like a layered dress>
<Random! I had to snap a pic of this sign on the Grand Kameha parking garage. It’s not every day I see a deliberate joke officially posted around Zurich>
<Strappy Sandal Illusion - While ankle straps can make legs look shorter, a thin ankle strap can have the opposite effect especially when your foot is exposed. My ankles are always swollen these days, but I adjusted the strap on these extra loose and found them comfy for a couple hours>
Do you have some basic black pieces in your wardrobe you can always turn to?
