Dress That Bump!

When I was pregnant, I had the hardest time finding clothes that were cute, that fit me well, and that didn't make me feel like a matronly sea whale (and I think those were some of my exact words). I looked everywhere, and there didn't seem to be anything that was marketed towards a younger age group and that didn't cost an arm and a leg. My philosophy towards maternity clothes was this: why drop a boatload of money on clothing that you will only wear a couple months (and may only wear once depending on how many kids you choose to have)? Not only did we not have the funds to spend a bunch of money, but I couldn't make myself spend over $300 on my total maternity wardrobe. Shopping in Upstate NY is limited already, but trying to find maternity clothes proved almost impossible. 

Here are the pieces that I feel you cannot live without while you're pregnant:
-maternity t-shirts and tank tops for layering
-a great pair of jeans (choose your panel, I preferred the panel that sat
under the belly
-maxi skirts and maxi dresses

Pretty much everything else can come from your "normal" closet and can be worn over t-shirts, tanks, and your maxi dresses (cardigans, blazers, sweaters, etc).

I also invested in fun jewelry and shoes that helped me to feel more like myself. If you can't wear heels, try some wedges!

More than anything, rock that bump. You're gorgeous and glowing!
