maternity // clothes


My least favorite thing to do is buy/try on/shop for/need/wear maternity clothes.

It’s horrible.

Nothing fits well. They are expensive. I hate spending money on clothing that will only be worn for a few months.

However, it’s a necessity.

My course of action?

I try to buy non-maternity clothes that work with my preggo belly. For example, these shorts I posted over on Whoa, wait. Walmart? last week. I’ve been living in them!

All I had to do was roll down the top once. Voila! Comfy enough for a baby bump.

Like this Liz Lange for Target maternity dress that my mom got for me.

It feels like heaven.

And that says a lot, because I’m 32+ weeks along. In summer.


Let’s all go ahead and give it up for Birenstocks being back in style the summer I am pregnant.

So thankful that comfort is in this season. And that I saved my Birks for 14 years.

How do you style your bump? Do you enjoy the process?

Happy shopping! xoxo

From a very young age, we learned the value of hunting for good deals on cute things.

I should preface this post by saying I own a (yes, ONE) pair of Lululemon yoga pants.  I love them.  They feel like heaven.  They actually make me happy. I feel like I look like a million damn dollars in them.  Having said that, I can’t afford to keep buying them.  I don’t have many friends who can afford that amazingly-wonderful luxury.

What I can easily justify is spending $11-$12 on Danskin Now yoga pants. Thank you, Walmart.  I own both of these pairs of pants and love wearing them to yoga.  I don’t own this top, but how cute is it? For $5.96 I might need to pick it up soon…

Happy hunting at Walmart. xoxo.
