maternity clothes

I must say I am thankful that I don't have a corporate 8-5 job while being pregnant. I would need SO MANY more clothes. Working from home, I can wear yoga pants and a tshirt all day if I want. And when I do have meetings or go out and about, I can wear jeans and a casual top.

Here are a few things I've bought lately and am loving for my bump (which according to my doc is measuring at 24/25 weeks if it was a singleton, and I'm 20 weeks with twins)

Tops- A lot of my pre-maternity tops still fit. Not as many as I thought would, some are way too tight in the chest now. I just wanted some basic tops I could wear daily and dress up if needed. 



I have also gotten a few tops that aren't maternity! I buy as many of my clothes as possibly at Scout & Molly's because I always love the selection and LOVE the girls that work there. (and they sell Poppy Style jewels...) 


can't wait to find some good white jeans to wear this top with!
I have worn this top 3 out of the 5 days since I got it!
Jeans- Buying maternity jeans has been easier than buying normal jeans for me! I love the full panel- I think it smooths me out and makes my belly look the best.


Distressed Jeans (dark & light)




(I got one pair with a full panel, but these are the side panels- we'll see how it goes!)

Dresses- So far I have only bought one maternity dress. Luckily I have a great dress from last spring/summer from Anthro (seen in this post) that fits great right now and I love it. I wore it to church Sunday and I know I'll wear it again soon. 

I plan to wear this dress to Easter (with bright, colorful jewelry or shoes) and save for any parties or special events. I almost went down a size because it is really flowy, but then I think it would have been too stretched in the back/chest area.



I am still searching for the perfect pair of white jeans. I also wouldn't mind some casual dresses, but haven't found any I like. I tried this one and it was so long, past my knees. And I'm pretty tall! I also tried this dress- in two sizes- both way too big and super long. Not at all flattering, sadly. So far I'm pretty happy with everything I've found! Maternity clothes aren't sooo bad!

  1. Love your picks! I had to buy maternity work clothes with my first pregnancy and it sucked. I hated spending $$ on them because maternity work clothes are mostly ugly! I had good luck with Tart maxi dresses (not maternity) and Target maxi dresses a size up. I did not have good luck with maternity maxi dresses- and I'm tall they were always way too long or too wide.
