Maternity Monday: Week 24

Maternity Monday, week 24 {6 months}

Thursday, September 6 – I didn’t take a picture of my outfit, but I will eventually. I wore a maternity maxi dress from SweetPea Maternity.

Friday, September 7 – I made the mistake of dressing like the opposing team that the Cyclones were playing that weekend. Thankfully, I only got one comment and we beat that team, which happens to be our in-state rivals. 🙂

Excuse the unedited picture. Lightroom isn’t work with me right now.










Monday, September 11 – no outfit pictures. I wore a simple black dress from Gap with a black and white scarf.

Tuesday, September 12 – This might become one of my staples for this pregnancy. The shirt is really long and I haven’t put it into my main work wardrobe because it’s fitted and fits weird over my pants. Basically it only works with a skirt. With a growing belly, I could definitely wear it with any of my pants too.

Wednesday, September 13 – this was a lame outfit. I found clothes that fit and went to work. I did attempt to spruce it up a bit by adding a scarf and necklace, but it was by no means a great outfit.

My favorite two outfits of this week were the maxi dress that I didn’t take a picture of and the skirt / top outfit on Monday.

Week 23

Thursday, August 30 work outfit:
Skirt (Motherhood), T-shirt (Not In Our Town), cardigan (Gap)

It was a bit of a casual day for me. I participated in a community anti-bullying campaign called Not In Our Town. We were allowed to wear the shirts all day, but couldn’t wear jeans. Being that it was still in the 90s, I opted for my black skirt. I felt a little too casual, so I dressed it up with a gray cardigan and a Lia Sophia necklace.










Because there was a rally at our courthouse square, we walked the two blocks to the lunchtime rally. I left the cardigan at my desk, but had a hard time putting it back on that afternoon. That heat really stuck with me! So, when I was talking to my boss after lunch and our executive VP came into his office his greeting to me was, “that’s a really bright shirt.” And my response was, “I feel a little bit like a pumpkin.”











I’m trying really hard to have fun with getting dressed. It helps my spirits, but I’m afraid I’m starting to slip into the same mentality I had last time. Check this day off, I found clothes to wear. I’ve got way too many days and weeks and months left to seep into that mentality already! 🙂


Maternity Monday

This was the first outfit I planned in my head. By sheer willpower, I held off until the middle of the week until I wore it. It was the only outfit that seemed “right” and I had a lot of things going on this day and thought it would be the most appropriate of the week.

Wednesday, August 29 work outfit:
Dress (American Eagle), Cardigan (Gap), Belt (Target), Necklace (Lia Sophia), Dog (Beagle). All years old.

It’s pretty much what I envisioned it would be. The skinny belt worked well even though the dress scrunches under the bust. It’s a spaghetti strap dress and the bust piece ties in the back so it does have some form to it. The form looks a lot better when I’m pregnant compared to not, but I did wear this for Maximus’ first birthday party.





The only negative is that I won’t be able to wear it when it gets cooler. I could wear it casually with leggings, but won’t be able to wear that to work. I have a feeling tights will not be something I want to wear when I’m bigger, but maybe I’ll find it is ok.





So far I like the season of pregnancy and weather, but I’m really nervous about finding cold weather clothes that I can wear. What are your favorite cold weather maternity wears?
