Small Victories


Thank you for your encouraging comments after my griping about maternity clothes.  I needed some encouragement, fo sho.  I know this outfit is very "normal" but that's exactly why I felt awesome in it.  After I griped, I stopped by Old Navy after grocery shopping, since it's dangerously right next to Trader Joe's, but I went with low expectations.  I'd been there just days before...and days before that again (we were going through produce really quickly this week...) and kept coming up short.  But thank God on this particular trip I either got lucky and caught a new stock...lowered my standards.  Whatever the case, it don't matta because I came away with a few tops and a sigh of relief.  

AND somehow these jeans that stopped fitting somewhere in the 2nd trimester decided to be kind to me yesterday.  Weird how that works, but I'll take what I can get.  Small victories, people.  

I wore this top two days in a row.  Wait, no.  As you're reading this, I'm wearing it for day three (with TOMs instead) while off to another retreat for work to that pseudo campground once again.  I'll catch ya later, full of dirt in my hair and sand in my clothes.  Don't worry, I'll gladly share.  You can thank me later.  

Three similar non-maternity top options, but all different prints as listed below.

  2. I have those same maternity pants, and they haven't fit me in a few weeks, too! Now you've inspired me to give them another chance in case they've decided to magically stretch. Love the top! It's always a win finding maternity tops in either interesting colors or prints.

  3. cute top audrey! love with the jacket too. saw this on Maskcara's website the other day and thought of you--transitional tops, and it mentioned turning a high/low top around backwards to use as a maternity top. http://www.maskcara.com/2014/06/05/transitional-outfits/

  5. Isn't it weird the way pants do that?! I think it is maybe because of how the bump changes position sometimes. Some days I'll wear pants that feel great and others I'm like, oh what happened here?! Either way after seeing your post and doing some "find in store" I think I might go to Old Navy today :)

  7. My favorite maternity outfits were jeans and fitted t-shirts, too. :-) I agree with you, it's because it's "normal". When everything about your body and this life transition is so NOT the normal you're used to, any little thing helps.

  8. I'm about a week behind you on my third pregnancy and I have never shopped for clothes at Walmart, but on a whim I ordered this tee-shirt http://www.walmart.com/ip/FAST-TRACK-Planet-Motherhood-Maternity-Short-Sleeve-Vneck-Tee-With-Side-Ruching/33688094 and I love it. It needs a tank under it in my opinion, but it's so normal. And if it doesn't work out you can return to stores!

  10. Love the top and yes it can be very hard to shop when you're pregnant. I wore the same things over and over again. But you look amazing!!!!! You're almost there and then you will feel like you have a brand new wardrobe.
