Allow me to enlighten you to the fact that maternity clothes are expensive. Which is surprising because you aren’t going to wear them forever. Regardless of that, I still want to be able to have affordable and stylish maternity wear.
I know a lot of people give the tip that “You should just buy a larger size”. I thought about it and realized that since the little one is due in October it would be a year before I could wear my summer clothes again. If I buy a larger size, they are going to be hanging off me the summer after I have the baby. I don’t mind loose fitting clothing but I don’t want my whole summer wardrobe to be loose fitting. I totally get that some people save money that way. I, myself, do not plan to save money that way. I invest in maternity clothes because I want to look and feel good!
I decided to hop on Polyvore and create a comfy yet classy outfit to wear during pregnancy. I like Polyvore because it provides links to the items you pick out. I found that dress is on clearance at Target for $19.00 so I went ahead and ordered one!
I thought the dress itself is very plain which is a good thing because it can be dressed up or laid back. I chose a more dressed up look with the gold and aqua accents. I added the pop of aqua to give it more of a summer vibe.
Simple yet chic.
I will start posting my outfits so you can get a better look at how I style myself throughout my pregnancy!
