Recent Maternity Clothing Purchases

I’m a bit simplistic when it comes to clothing during pregnancy.  I don’t want to spend too much money on pieces that I’ll only wear for a few months, so I try to buy affordable things that can all go together.  Simple solids, stripes and a few patterned pieces (thrown in with a few non-maternity cardigans and statement necklaces like this gorgeous “neon persimmon” one I just bought), are all I need to create a stylish yet practical maternity wardrobe.  I’ve rounded up many of the pieces I’ve bought recently, so if you’re looking for a few ways to spruce up your spring maternity wardrobe then you’re in luck!

Clothing Sources (clockwise from top left)

Striped Short Sleeved Shirt–  Stripes are always a good idea!

Olive Green Tank–  I like simple maternity tanks to wear underneath non-maternity cardigans (primarily my 6 years old navy Tory Burch sweater.  It’s my favorite sweater in the world and it goes with everything!  It’s a splurge purchase but I have definitely gotten my money’s worth over the years.  I have the “Simone” in cotton which doesn’t seem to be available anymore, but the navy one I linked to is super cute too.)

Distressed Jeans– These skinny jeans (jeggings, actually) are super comfy, really cute and only $34.99.  They’re cuter in real life than in the picture and the distressing is great because there aren’t any real holes in them (because I’m just not cool enough to pull that look off).  I bought an XS.

Cowl Neck Sweatshirt– This runs a bit big and I bought a Small.  I think it’ll be better for 2nd and 3rd trimester once my belly is bigger.  I really like the blush color.

3/4 Length Striped Shirt–  Y’all know I love stripes, so had to scoop this one up.  It’s on the longer side which will be nice once my belly is bigger.

Chambray Dress– I bought a darker version of this dress, but I think I like this lighter version better.

Striped Shorts– I’ll admit it, I don’t really like Motherhood Maternity.  Last time around I bought 2 tank tops that fit really poorly and 2 dresses and 2 skirts that were super sheer, and their styles can be a bit frumpy.  That being said, I tried these shorts on and I LOVE them!  They’re really flattering and I love the stripes.  I bought an XS.

Blue Floral Dress– I was afraid this would look a little “grandma-y” but it’s actually pretty cute and I think it’ll be nice for spring and summer.

Striped Pencil Skirt– I got this as part of the buy one get one free at Motherhood Maternity.  Jack was having a meltdown after a long day of shopping for baby girl clothes so I just grabbed it without trying it on.  I bought a Small since that was the smallest size they had, but I think an XS would have been better.  It’ll fit better once my belly gets bigger though.

Lace Dress– I’m going to be a bridesmaid at my brother’s wedding next month, and his fianc√©e wants us all in blush dresses.  This maternity dress is super comfy and fits really well.  I ordered a Small.  The availability of the sizes seems to change daily, so if you want this dress make sure to check the website often.  It took me a few days to finally be able to order it in the size I needed.

3/4 Length White Shirt– Great transitional piece for early spring.  I can’t quite wear this one yet, but it’ll be good once my bump is a little bigger.

White Short Sleeved Shirt–  A great basic.

    I lived in clothes from Old Navy and Target during my pregnancy. They were always the clothes that I felt the most comfortable in.
