 As this bump gets larger, I am literally running out of options. Specifically, when it comes to outerwear!  It got me thinking about maternity clothes in general and I thought I would share with you my experience!

So far, it’s been super interesting balancing staying stylish without having to buy a whole new wardrobe.  To be honest, I have had a hard time spending money on maternity clothes knowing that it’s just for a short period, plus I hated most of the options available! But, eventually I had to give so I don’t look like a complete slob-kabob.  What really saved me my  second and third trimester were stretchy knit dresses. I would dig for more modest options at Sirens or Urban Planet.  But, wearing knit dresses daily wasn’t realistic so I thought I would share with you what I actually bought for this pregnancy!

Where I Shopped

Old Navy | Thyme Maternity | ASOS | H&M (online only) | SirensUrban Planet | Target

Bottoms

This one was a no brainer. There was no way I was getting this bump into some non maternity pants. I ended up snagging most of my pants at places like Target or Old Navy for their inexpensive options and decent fit.

Tops

This wasn’t as bad as I thought.  I was able to wear a lot of my non-maternity sweaters and even some over-sized blouse I already had.  But when it came to short and long sleeve tees, none I owned seemed long enough to cover the bump.  To all non-maternity tops a belly band was a requirement but I did end up buying some maternity staples to get me through my last trimester.

Accessories

If I am not wearing a dress, I am most definitely wearing one of these babies.  They add coverage and comfort and made my non-maternity options last a bit longer.  Best investment by far!

    Yes! The only maternity wear I’ve purchased so far is a belly band… I’m the same way. I hate the idea of buying something that I’m only going to wear for 3 months!?
    I’ve been living in leggings and sweater dresses as well. I might need to purchase some more sweater dresses as a couple are getting a little short now… but I’ll definitely check out some of the stores you went too!

    Thanks for sharing!
