I am so loving the thrifts right now! I have completed my maternity wardrobe with only a few trips and not that much time, or money of course, spent. I am telling you ladies, if you are preggo or planning to be, DO NOT SHOP RETAIL, you will be in and out of these clothes so fast that it is a waste of money. I have survived on a thrifted $5 Bella Band up till now which is the 5 month mark, but am pretty sure I will want true maternity pants here within the next 30 days.
Here's what I found the other day that rounds out (no pun intended) my preggo lady wardrobe:
One of my fave finds was this pretty deep turquoise tunic from Old Navy, tags still on, for $5.49.
Two Wally World brand long length t-shirts for $3.59 each.
A pretty Missoni-style Motherhood maternity top that was on weekly special for 99 cents!
A Gap Maternity cardigan for $3.59.
And a pair of Old Navy maternity jeans for $3.59.
Add in the gray tunic, black dress, and Pea In The Pod shirt I blogged about and another tunic, t-shirt, and 2 pairs of maternity jeans that were given to me, and I have completed my wardrobe. All second hand!
I am at about $35 spent on the whole sha-bang (to be fair, I added in $10 just in case I forgot anything).
If you are not liking the shirts you are seeing in the maternity section, no worries, just go on over to the size Large shirt section and shop there. Don't forget to shop your own closet too. With some of today's styles being more blousey and tunic like, it is easy to convert them over to your pregnancy wardrobe.
A disclaimer in all of this, I wear medical scrubs for my part time gig, so I don't need a true work wardrobe. But I am telling y'all, I see plenty of maternity dress pants and shirts when shopping the g-dub!
