I have basically been living in some variation of this:
Oh wait – they’re all the same. That proves it. Skirts with stretchy waistbands, Target t-shirts and tank tops, sandals (I really should paint my toenails while I still can, but…nah, I’ll wait ’til they’re out of reach and enlist Kevin’s help – he’ll love that), and cardigans (because my office tends to run cold…or maybe that’s just me).
When I’m feeling especially fancy, I’ll class it up with a non-100% cotton skirt.
I also have several dresses that are accommodating and flattering – especially with a belt above the belly or a button up shirt tied high – with room to fit more, so hopefully they’ll keep me clothed well into the third trimester.
Overall, my pre-pregnancy wardrobe has actually been sufficient thus far. I have bought one pair of maternity shorts (Target! Naturally.), which I love. I have two pair of jeans that are still buttoning, so those are put through their paces when I need a fix of denim. Oh and leggings are good good good to me these days. I fin-ally jumped on the Zella Live-In leggings bandwagon that everyone has been raving about for years (the Nordstrom anniversary sale was just too enticing and I couldn’t resist), and they are a-ma-zing. I ordered a long pair and a pair of capri leggings for when I want to show a little
Sandals, flats, and sneakers are pretty much all I am interested in when it comes to footwear, but that’s always been the case for me, so nothing new. I have a few pair of wedges that are fine when I do need a bit of a heel. I’ll be at my most pregnant just as boot season begins, so we’ll see how swollen my feet are at that point.
Recently my most beloved accessory is my FitBit – I’ve been making it a point to get my 10,000 steps a day for the past few weeks. Maybe it’s all in my head but I feel so much better since I started making that effort. I’m going to keep it up for as long as I can.
What are/were/will be your maternity wardrobe staples?
