Maternity Style // Week 19 + 21

I won't lie, I'm getting to the point where I miss my old clothes and having a waist and dressing the way I'm used to dressing.  At 19/21 weeks, when I shot these outfits, I could still pull off a pretty non-maternity look, but at 28 weeks now I'm approaching the "large and in charge" phase of pregnancy.  Luckily I've acquired some stretchy, but cute, things that have been really nice for getting dressed without feeling like a total scrub (although there are definitely days I spend the whole day in sweats or leggings.

Dressing for pregnancy is definitely a challenge, especially because your body looks so different than you're used to it looking. I need to go thrifting again because last time I scored big time on some really cute (non-maternity) things that work perfectly for a growing bump and those items really helped me be able to get dressed and still feel like I look nice.  Having 3 or 4 more pieces in my closet that fit that bill will be nice, especially for remixing.  I'm really not into buying maternity-specific clothes, except pants, which are the best.  Having clothes that work for a bump but will transition easily into being regular non-pregnant clothes is my goal when shopping.  I don't want to end up with a bunch of stuff that doesn't work once the bump is gone.
