At one point, I had thought I could create an entire maternity wardrobe with less than $100. Clearly that's not the case, but I did find some great pieces at some great prices. The dark skinnies are easily going to get a lot of wear, and same goes for the tees. The floral dress is my favorite of all and will be able to be worn throughout the fall and after pregnancy, too. Same goes for the blue skirt.
I still plan to buy a couple of more staples in these next few weeks. I tried on some old tunic sweaters recently and they fit fine and look like there is still room to expand. (That's saying something since most of my clothes don't fit me anymore - I have grown just enough that I can't button my shirts or get my pants over my hips.) Hopefully they will work so I won't have to stockpile for winter.
There are a few other pieces I purchased in an online maternity clearance haul, but didn't include them in this report because I'm not sure whether to keep them or not. On one hand, they were pieces that were less than $10. On the other hand, I have a few things I like, and don't want to buy just for the sake of buying. For those of you who are or have been pregnant, how did you approach shopping? Do you have any advice?
