Why must maternity clothing be so vile?!
I’m currently five months pregnant, and ’til now have managed to avoid maternity shopping like the plague (well with the exception of some preg-jeans). However now that the bump is finally peering through, the time has come to sort my wardrobe life out. I’m intending on purchasing as little maternity crap as possible – mainly because THE HACK – everything is patterned/geriatric/overpriced. And so any recent wardrobe purchase by moi has been non-maternity but totally wearable when mit Kinder – as in long waistcoats, waterfall jackets and so on.
I’m wary of wearing too much non-maternity as the mama bump grows though, for fear of dressing in tents and adding unwanted poundage. And so I’ve been cyber trapsing the shops for what’s maternity, affordable, and not heinous. (Praise the Lord for ASOS basically.) The following pieces are all linked, and should hopefully be easily dressed up or down to cover all the summer calendar bases – weddings, birthdays, holidays, work etc etc!
Let me know if you’re a babymama-to-be too, and/or also if I’ve missed some obvious high street maternity destinations!
