My maternity wardrobe

I finally received half of my maternity order!  My sister has kindly bought me some maternity clothing.  When I say some, I mean basically an entire wardrobe. I took a few photos on my phone just to show her how they fit.  They aren’t the greatest photos, but I am wearing awesome socks.  Most of the things my sister got me are summer pieces, that I can layer for winter.  Luckily this winter isn’t so cold.  As a guide I used Audrey from Putting Me Together’s  post on how to create a maternity capsule wardrobe.  This has been a life-saver for me Audrey, thank you!  Once the entire order has arrived, I will be able to show you more clearly on how I used this very handy guide!

Maternity try on

  • Three quarter sleeve striped shirt:  This top is just amazing! It makes every outfit look so chic!  It is the perfect striped top that I’ve been looking for all this time.  I just hope I can find a non-maternity version for my permanent wardrobe.
  • Bird print tank top: This top is slightly too big.  The straps are slightly too long and I’m torn between just taking them in or leaving it, because who knows how big I’ll get.
  • Chestnut coloured tank top: This fits really well and I can’t believe how this colour goes with everything!  It just makes everything pop!
  • Elephant print dress:  This dress fits perfectly! I can’t wait to wear this.  On the one hand I want to save it for something special and the other I just want to wear it all the time!
  • Jeggings: These have convinced me that getting at least a few maternity pieces is a good idea! These are so comfortable!! Plus, they look better on me than my regular jeans!

  • Because this order was taking so long to reach me, I went out and bought these two striped t-shirts.  I originally got them to sleep in because my pyjamas were getting uncomfortable.  And we all know pyjamas are never supposed to me uncomfortable!  I like these tops so much, that I when one is being used as a sleeping top, the other is being worn out and about, like it was made for. The long sleeves also really help layering up my mostly summer maternity wardrobe.
  • I also bought these extremely unflattering joggers.  They are used as pyjamas and for yoga.
  • The first maternity item I bought was a pair of black ponte trousers (not pictured).  I wear them constantly and I’m sure they will get even more use as my regular trousers get a bit tight for me.

Well, there you have it. If I ever receive my second half of my order, then I’ll do an updated post.  But in the meantime these items have stretched the use of my wardrobe far beyond what I thought they would!
