When I first became pregnant I was hell bent on not spending a ton of money on maternity clothes. The way I saw it, why would I go and buy a bunch of clothes that I would only wear for such a short period of time? I figured I could get by in my own leggings and flowy shirts and I would be just fine.
Isn’t that hilarious?
I was able to mostly get through the first trimester in my own clothes. I definitely did not need to buy any shirts. I did buy one pair of maternity jeans at Old navy and I hate them. I never really liked jeans pre-pregnancy so that really wasn’t surprising. Early in my pregnancy my friend Alicia loaned me some black maternity leggings she wore in her pregnancy and some shirts, so I figured I would be set, at least in the beginning.
I am now at the point where I need to be in maternity clothes every day. I have bought a few shirts from the maternity section at Target, and I wear leggings constantly. I bought one pair from Target but they kept rolling down my stomach and after a few washes looked blah. The black leggings Alicia loaned me are amazing and never roll down, and after many washes still look great. They are David Lerner leggings and even though they are pricey- they are worth it. I even bought another pair this weekend because I know I will wear the crap out of them the next 4 months!
I bought my baby shower dress from Pink Blush Maternity, but was able to get it 30% off on Zulily.com! That site is great for deal on maternity clothes, and I search it every day looking for any good deals. I still don’t want to spend a fortune on maternity clothes after all.
I am also looking into comfortable shoes for winter lately. I have been living in sandals all summer and most of fall but with no support and my back starting to ache 24/7, they weren’t cutting it. Now I am in my Toms all day.
Basically, pregnancy is hard- I am just aiming to be comfortable at this point! If anyone has any suggestions on comfy maternity clothes, please- help a sista out!
Happy Halloween! xo
