On Maternity Clothes: Follow-Up
Wow, you guys are great! So many awesome comments on my previous post, with plenty of great tips. I also received some emails and texts from some of you as well, with more tips and ideas. It was really very helpful and I placed an order some new maternity clothes yesterday. Old Navy is having a great sale (it ends 7/18), where if you use your Gap/Old Navy/Banana card, you receive 30% of your entire order at checkout. I ended up ordering:
One pair of jeans. I already have a pair with a full panel, and they are starting to cut off at the wrong part of my bump (I think I am carrying kind of high). I decided to try one with a lower panel that sits below my bump instead, to see how I like those.
Two pairs of leggings. I am SO excited for these. I have a lot of long sweater + boot combinations that will be great for the fall, and I think these will be so comfortable with long tanks and tees through the rest of the summer as well.
One chambray tunic. A friend recommended this one to me. Looks cute for summer, but in the fall I can throw a long-sleeve tee underneath, too!
And another ribbed tank. I love Old Navy’s maternity tanks and already own three of them, but I thought it would be great to grab a white one as well.
I still plan to also invest in one or two maxi dresses (PS: great tips on what to wear to prevent thigh rubbage, everyone!), a nice pair of yoga pants, some long sleeve tees from the Gap (to use in the fall) and a few new bras (as soon as I can hit the Destination Motherhood store in my area).
I have a lot of cardigans & button up sweaters, so with all of these layering pieces, I think I can transition to fall just fine.
So thanks for your help everyone! I feel a lot better about where I’m at and I can’t wait to see how these new pieces fit me.
In other news, we’re FINALLY MOVING TO THE NEW HOUSE TOMORROW! Woohoo! Wish us luck!
