So often I’m methodical when it comes to my wardrobe shopping, that way I can make the most of every dollar and my style. I often stick to the classic styles like dark jeans and a white t-shirt, classic cardigans, and black leggings.
For this pregnancy I decided to turn the tables a little and have some fun! I found these prints jeans and red blouse on sale at maternity motherhood while on vacation in Alaska. The pants are great because they can work in both a dressier setting and a more casual one. The shirt is a nice option for Church or a night out with the husband.
I’ve been buying a mixture of non-maternity and maternity items to save some money. For instance, I bought an oversized chambray shirt and a couple regular size cardigans I can leave open and use post-pregnancy. I also managed to fit into a larger size maxi skirt I picked up.
Most days I live in leggings, a fitted t-shirt, or a maxi dress or skirt. Then I add a punch of interest with a statement necklace or a scarf. Not going to lie, this past June I splurged on a bunch of budget accessories from Target, and I’m really glad I did because it makes a smaller wardrobe grow.
This particular look was pulled together in 15-20 minutes. That’s about all I have most mornings with my toddler bouncing around. Showering at night, making use of dry shampoo, becoming great at putting makeup on in 5 minutes, and making use of pinterest for cute but easy hair styles has helped me a lot in this pregnancy. Sleep is a priority for me, so keeping my overall “getting ready” routine simple and quick is a must.
For the remainder of this pregnancy, I figure I’ll focus on finding a pair or two of some really comfortable shoes and other things that will last after pregnancy (makeup, or possibly a bag??). Right now I feel like I have enough, but if I do find that nothing fits near the end of this pregnancy (like was the case for me with Asher), then I think I might add a couple tees.
If you’re pregnant or have been, do you have any tips on making your maternity wardrobe look good on less?
