When I first found out I was pregnant, I confess I was really excited about doing a maternity style series. I thought for sure I’d be able to wear a lot of my regular clothes and not need to spend any money on maternity clothes and I could share with other mamas-to-be how I did it.
Oh sweet naive Amanda.
Here we are several months down the road and my wardrobe has dwindled TREMENDOUSLY. None of my old jeans/shorts/etc fit with a belly band (hello hips!), practically all my shirts are too short or too tight (hello boobs!), my skirts look like circus tents, my dresses are too short and my hips are too big for leggings. To top it off, my feet have grown and a large chunk of my shoes don’t fit anymore. As someone who loves getting dressed and coming up with outfits.. This has been a bummer.
So I’ve spent a LOT of my summer in my sole pair of maternity shorts, 4 or 5 maternity t-shirts, and 5 or so maxi dresses. Granted, I haven’t had much time to really think through outfits lately anyway!
If I did it all over again, I’d keep my eyes peeled for sales on maternity clothes and snatch them up gradually throughout my pregnancy instead of being shit out of luck come month 8. ;) But hey…we’re almost there!
