Waters Wears: Easy Summer

Sometimes, you get a piece of clothing, and when you wear it, you realize how you love it. This top is one of those pieces.

From Motherhood Maternity, I ordered it when they were having an online clearance sale. Right now, I’m trying to get maternity items that will fit me until the end of my pregnancy. I ordered this in a medium based on Motherhood’s sizing chart, but almost got a large, since I had never gotten any tops from them before and was worried a medium might be too small to wear all the way through these last few months. But the size medium is fine, with plenty of space and length to grow into! On top of that, it’s comfortable, and I’ll probably wear it because of that after the baby is here, too.

I know I wear this necklace and ring a lot lately, but the necklace pendant has always been a favorite of mine, and I’m just on a kick of wearing this ring lately. Maybe part of it has to do with the fact that I can’t wear my wedding band right now due to swelling and my husband bought me this ring, so it’s kind of a compromise, I don’t know.

I also love wearing this style of tennis shoes with about anything. Although they don’t have a lot of support.

This outfit is just an easy summer style – really laidback, really comfortable and cool for the heat.

Waters Wears: Tied T-Shirt

I had intentions of getting outdoor pictures of this outfit since it’s been a LONG time since I’ve had outfit pictures outside of my house on this blog, but alas, we’ve had rain since this morning.

I saw another pregnant lady wearing this style, and I thought it was great. Wear a skirt or dress and tie your pre-belly tees at empire waist level. Gives you a way to continue wearing them throughout even the later months of pregnancy.

I’m still figuring out how to put together outfits as this pregnancy progresses, but though it feels a little rocky at points, I think I’m getting there. Trying to figure out ways to wear as much as I can from my normal wardrobe, while buying mostly maternity items that will also work after the baby is born.

Waters Wears: Brown Blouse

Yay for loose, flowy/too-big blouses I already had in my wardrobe from before pregnancy! I love wearing fitted tops while pregnant, but this type of blouse gives a different look option. And it’s also pretty comfortable.

I’ve worn basically this outfit, this blouse and these shorts, a couple times now.

Still loving these shorts – I’ve mentioned before that maternity shorts tend to be looser at the cuff, and I also just like the length. And I always like the look of shorter shorts with longer, looser blouses.

Look at that bump. The past few weeks, baby has had a major growth spurt, and I officially feel like I look pregnant; I mean I’ve felt that way for a while now, but I feel like now I’m at the point of, “There is no doubt she’s pregnant no matter what she wears.” kinda thing. Like before, it was like, yes my belly is bigger, but now I look like a full-blown pregnant lady.

I’m also finally feeling strong kicks and movements. Kinda’ crazy, kinda’ cool.

Summer Attire

Whew, long time no see to this little blog. Due to the fact that hubs and I are pregnant, and I basically sat out anything blog and social media related during the first trimester. I had no morning sickness, but the changing hormones exacerbated my hypoglycemia, and that along with the extreme tiredness led to those weeks being more about surviving, haha.

This type of outfit, t-shirt, shorts, has already become a pretty typical outfit for summer, for me. There’s really nothing special about it, except that the pieces are maternity and that it’s pretty comfortable. Usually, I lean toward wearing tank tops in the summer, but while I do have a few of those, shirts with sleeves help protect against the sunburn that my skin is even more prone to while pregnant.

I don’t know why, but I’ve also just always loved the look of maternity shorts; they tend to be a little bit looser at the cuffs. And I always like a nice striped shirt.

I’m trying to get back into the swing of capturing outfits and posting things. It’s been interesting adjusting what I wear to the needs of a fast-growing belly, because it seems like the clothing that works well changes almost day to day. I’m trying to use items I already own in creative ways or for as long as I can and not buy too many clothes I’ll only wear for a few months, while giving in and buying several basics that will hopefully last me at least a good chunk of the way through my pregnancy. I guess we’ll see how it goes. :)
