((outfit schmoutfit)) now & then


I'm sure you've noticed by now that I'm kind of anti-*most*-maternity clothing. I think it's important to have some maternity basics ((see this post)), but there's no need to over-do it. You just need to change the way you look at your current wardrobe. I wore this almost-exact outfit last year, not pregnant, in this post.  Maxi dresses & skirts are, by far, the easiest way to stretch your regular wardrobe through your pregnancy. Add a chambray top, a favorite pair of sandals or wedges & a statement necklace and you've got yourself an effortless combination. Some items just might be a smudge tighter than  before you were preggo ;)



Statement necklace, maxi dress - Anthropologie
Chambray top - thrifted & tailored to fit me
Leather bracelets - C/O flourish leather
Wedges - DSW

love.

  2. Can we talk about how you tailored your denim shirt? I have about 4 of them and I look like a greenbay packer in all of them. THey are not fitted and just boxy. I was wondering how you took it in? Did you take it in from the armpit down or what? I'd love to know how you did this!

    Also, you look WONDERFUL! Way to go 38 weeks and still looking great!!!

  8. Yeah... I'd consider yourself lucky! I couldn't fit into hardly anything non-maternity. (I even had a couple of the dreaded side-ruched t-shirts and I grew out of them at like 32 weeks... awesome). I loved maxi dresses though. I was extra-swollen and I hated both pants and my legs being visible to the world. So the longer the dress the better!
