Prêt à Pregnant Talks With... Jewaria Luu
At the end of July you gave birth to Beaufort, how did you experience your first pregnancy?
It was a very unique and transforming period. I can say that pregnancy really forced me to self-reflect and think about what I wanted in life. I was very sick in the first three months, and kind of hated it. But after the first trimester I experienced it as something really beautiful. I loved my tiny bump and the fact that I always had a little friend with me wherever I was. Although I had a very easy and lovely pregnancy I’m glad that it’s over. I really missed being fit and energetic at the end of the pregnancy.
You have got an amazing sense of style, can you tell us something about how you dressed during your pregnancy?
Thank you! To be honest, I didn’t have any maternity items during my whole pregnancy. I had a very tiny bump and was able to wear my old clothes until the end. My go to outfit was a clean cut shirt with black trousers. Or a maxi dress with a shirt over it.
What was your favorite maternity item?
Did your beauty regime change during your pregnancy?
What was your pregnancy craving?
Vegan waffles from de Brunchroom in Amsterdam.
What is something you have learned from motherhood so far?
You can’t control anything.
Breastfeeding, yeah or nah?
Describe your ultimate mommy me-time moment.
Very simple stuff, like getting dressed, taking a warm shower and reading a book. I’m even thankful nowadays if I have the time to cook a proper dinner.
What fashion item does every mom need in their closet?
What are your three must haves for the new season, fall/winter ’18/’19?
A big oversized puffer coat. The one from the new Filling Pieces collection is still high on the bucket list. The new vegan leather boots from Collection&Co and glasses from the new Celine collection.
You recently started a blog, can you tell us something about it?
I always get lots of questions on my Instagram DM. I figured that it was way easier to write articles about topics that were most requested. It gives me the chance to provide everybody the proper information that they deserve. And I love writing.
What are your favorite brands to dress Beaufort in?
I’m a designer girl but funny enough not with my child. They grow so fast that I find it a waste to buy expensive clothes for him. His whole wardrobe consists of HEMA and H&M.
What is your favorite mommy related product?
My breast pump… I literally can’t live without it.
What can we find on your night stand?
What is your all-time favorite bag?
This is a very difficult one to answer.. I can’t choose to be honest. At the moment I’ve been wearing my J.W. Andersson logo canvas bag on a daily basis.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Instagram! I follow so many amazing style icons like Ada Kokosar, Linda Tol and Oumayma el Boumeshouli.
What about motherhood surprised you the most?
The love you can have for another human being. I loved before, but this is the definition of unconditional love. It’s intense.
Who is your style icon?
My friend Oumayma el Boumeshouli
And last but not least… what is your ultimate tip for other new moms?
