I wore this outfit this last Tuesday. I had my 16 week doctors appointment and my mom surprised me and said she'd like to take Grant for the morning. Since summer has started my time to myself has been nonexistent. It honestly hasn't bothered me, but that thought of a few hours to myself was pretty great. I had quite a list of things to do and threw on this outfit, which I've worn at least once a week this summer. This top from Target is now out of stock but this top is a really cute option. Though I'm only about half way though my pregnancy there are are few things I've learned in regards to clothing.
- I would not do well with a capsule wardrobe, I am seriously bored with my casual shirt options. I have a few shirts, like this one that are non-maternity that I've continued to wear, but having the same eight shirts to choose from gets really old, really fast. I do have some fun dresses and tops for work I haven't worn since I'm home this summer, so I'm looking forward to having more choices once school starts.
- Flowy tops like this are my jam, I don't feel nearly as large when I wear these as apposed to wearing the few tops I have like this. I'm just not comfortable showing off my belly, so I look forward to being able to layer these shirts with boyfriend cardigans once it cools down a bit and school starts.
- Buying shorts and jeans like these was not very smart. The thick elastic band is so uncomfortable and actually makes me nauseous. Over the belly or bottoms or bottoms like these I'm wearing today with the side panel are much more comfortable. I'm really made I spend money on three bottoms I really don't want to wear.
- Everything I wear looks better when I have a tan, I've loved getting to spend so much time swimming with Grant this summer. I do put on sunscreen, but I don't reapply, like I do on Grant. A little color makes my confidence go a long way!
