When I got pregnant I promised myself I would not wear any maternity clothes! First time mom, lifetime fashionista . . What did I know?? I remember a little crisis I had around 20 weeks when I could not fit my beloved leather pants anymore. I admit it kind of felt the end of the world!!
I was able to stretch myself into my regular bottoms until the end of the second trimester, then I had to start research for maternity brands, unless I wanted to start leaving the house with my trousers unbuttoned . . Mmmh . . Not a good idea! People might misinterpret me! 😉
After some research I found out they do maternity clothes for a reason! Like these Isabella Oliver joggers, they are more flattering than regular pants on all my growing parts, not to mention they are super comfortable! Personally, I was able to get away with 1 pair of joggers and 3 maternity denims which I plan to reach the due date with and at least the first month or two post pregnancy.
My tip is you don’t need much! 4 pieces of maternity pieces are getting me through my 3rd trimester comfortably and stylishly too. If you are not ready to let go of the majority of your wardrobe, like I am, you can still wear all of your tops, shoes and handbags . . The big splurge is on accessories! . . And the cutest baby outfits of course!!
