How would you describe your pregnant style?

The path of least resistance.

Have you had any challenges learning to dress your body during this pregnancy?

During my first pregnancy I was on bed rest from 20 weeks and working from home, so this time around felt more like a first. I think the most challenging part was still trying to feel professional without looking dorky. Not sure I pulled it off, but I tried.

So far, what has surprised you most during your pregnancy?

How challenging it is being pregnant while you have a toddler. This experience could not have been more different from the first--both were amazing.

What’s been your favorite pregnancy piece or brand to show off your bump?

The best investment I made this pregnancy were my AG jeans. I almost didn't buy them because I wasn't sure they were worth the investment, but they were the one piece that kept me feeling like "myself."

What NYC experience are you most looking forward to sharing with your baby?

I'm so excited to some time off to spend with my little one (and my almost 2-year-old!). It will be the first time in years I'll be able to take in the city worry-free.

Tara is wearing:

Jeans: AG maternity jeans (similar style)

Shirt: It was my grandmothers (not sure where she got it). When she passed, all of the women in my family thought I was nuts for keeping her clothes since she was large. But I didn't want to let it go and knew I'd find a way to make this top work. I felt so lucky to be able to wear it during this pregnancy and have a piece of her with me throughout. (Shop this similar style.)
