I've been kind of torn on the whole maternity clothes thing since getting pregnant. In the beginning, I obviously didn't need anything new. But as my body started changing, and my clothes started to become uncomfortable, I knew I needed to invest in a few pieces. On Black Friday/Cyber Monday, I got a few basics online: a few long-sleeve t-shirts from Gap/Old Navy, a pair of maternity jeans from Nordstrom, and a pair of purple ponte pants from Old Navy. And those are all getting LOADS of wear now that they are the things that fit me best.
But this week, returning back to work, it was time to get a few more things I can wear to work. So Travis and I decided to run to Target and see if they had anything in store. And they did! I picked up this dress (for only $8!!!!!) another one just like it but in grey and without sleeves (this one is 3/4), a plain black t-shirt, and a couple of long-sleeved shirts. I feel like now all I really need is a pair of black pants that I can wear to work, and I should be able to stretch those items for at least the next month or so, rotating them carefully and pairing them with things that will always fit: cardigans, blazers, and accessories.
And for good measure, a side pic of my growing 19.5 week belly:
For those of you who are moms, what was your maternity style? Did you go out and buy a whole new wardrobe? Did you buy only 1-2 things? What were your favorite stores to shop from while your belly was growing?? Let me know in the comments!
