What I wore: Week 26

Week 26

Thursday, September 20 – New outfit! This shirt is really long when I’m not pregnant so I knew it would be a good maternity shirt! It’s not form fitting, even with a 6 1/2 month belly, so I got to wear a belt. You know, since I’m in love with belts. Except it was a little uncomfortable when I was driving and I wasn’t able to slouch at all! I forgot that with a 6 1/2 month pregnant belly comes less room. 🙂 I’ll wear this outfit again, but maybe minus the belt.

Friday, September 21 – It was a “casual” day at work. We were allowed to wear our Not In Our Town shirts again, but mine doesn’t fit anymore. 😦 So, I found the closest thing to orange. A hooded striped sweater from American Eagle. I wore it with gray pants and called it good. Because it was casual, I was able to wear it with jeans that night also. I didn’t take a picture of the outfit, but I got a little smarter this week. It’s chilly here now so fall apparel is upon us. I grabbed my maternity capris and put boots on! Genius, right?! For the most part yes. The books are fitted so there wasn’t a lot of extra room with my capris. I’ll try it again as it appears to be a great solution to my pant problem.

Wednesday, September 26 – The weather turned chilly so it’s time for the jean jacket to make an appearance. It’s a good way to take a typical maternity work outfit and make it look a little different.

I’m changing up the maternity clothes posts. I’m hooking up with Lindsey  over on The Pleated Poppy with What I Wore Wednesday posts.

Maternity wear, week 25

Thursday, September 13 – I had an early morning meeting and it was really chilly in my house. So, I wanted to wear something that felt warm, but I knew I wasn’t ready for sweaters yet. This is a bit of a stretch, in more ways than one, but my pants are gray and so is my shirt. I doubt I’ll wear this shirt much more since I barely got the last button done. That may explain why I felt stretched to my limits most of the day. 🙂

Friday, September 14 – repeat work outfit. New date night outfit! I’m undecided if I’ll try to wear these pants again. They really didn’t fit, but I wore my belly band and faked it. Even though I couldn’t even pretend to zip them, they didn’t fall down! 🙂 Because the pants are skinny jeans, they stretched. They are the only pair of jeans that I have that I could try to make fit, yet normally they are the tightest ones I have. If I get in a pinch, I might try it again…

September 11 – New outfit! I found some new colors to go with my Gap pants. The shirt didn’t quite fit as well as I would have liked so I was really layered up. I had a white tank top on to give it some length and then still didn’t feel comfortable so I put on a black vest. I doubt I’ll wear the gold shirt again and that’s unfortunate because I liked the pop of color. I think it looks like it fit more than it felt.

My other outfits were repeats and none of them were favorites. My date night outfit was by far my favorite outfit of the week! I love the purple shirt. It’s got plenty of room right now and I wish it was a little tighter, but I know I’ll enjoy wearing it all the way through the pregnancy. It was the first time this pregnancy, or as long as I can remember, that I felt like I was wearing normal clothes. I usually feel like maternity clothes make me feel un-normal. It’s like I search for clothes to cover my body and nothing is really me. Or what I want.

Week 25 in the books!
