Kate Middleton's maternity style - and yours

Kate Middleton has been receiving kudos (believe it or not) for her maternity style. And why not? She's kept the signature coats and added in pieces that keep her looking like the Duchess of Cambridge we're coming to know. Chances are good she's had a button or two moved, which is a great strategy while you're still small. The real takeaway lesson? Just because you're pregnant and your body shape is changing (and trust me, it will change) doesn't mean you need to give up your own personal style. In my first pregnancy I didn't want to invest in too many maternity clothes, because of the expense. I accepted a lot of hand-me-downs. And while I am still grateful (and frugal), I also spent months feeling like an imposter in a tent-like pink shirt circa 1984. Pregnancy, even when not bearing a royal heir and being chased by paparazzi, is enough of an experience of feeling alien in one's own body. It is worth investing in a few things that really make you smile getting dressed. If you're pregnant right now, you are in luck. It's spring. It's mostly not too hot. And there are great dresses. Yes, for pregnant bellies too. Here are three I love: Front tie shirt dress by Maternal America, available at Seven Women Short sleeve empire waist dress from Motherhood Maternity   Drape-neck maternity shift from Thyme Maternity:
