Waters Wears: Tied T-Shirt

tiedtshirt1

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.

Spring Green

A quick confession of sorts – I originally wore this outfit a few weeks ago, when the belly was a bit smaller, but didn’t have time to get pictures then. I’m getting pictures now because it’s a type of outfit that I should be able to recreate with various pieces throughout my pregnancy. Basically a skirt with the waist positioned as an empire waist; above the belly, with a tank top or shirt underneath.

Other than that, I was really pleasantly surprised with how the color combinations of this particular outfit wound up; the colors in the floral skirt seem to make the light green of the shirt pop, and all the colors compliment each other really well.

Long, gathered skirts, it’s no surprise, work really well over a growing belly, as they give room and length, and so can be worn even as weeks progress and the belly gets bigger and bigger. And it’s a plus that it allows me to be able to wear a skirt, and probably some shirts, that I already had before being pregnant.

The weather has been pretty hot here most days, with blocks of heavy thunderstorms in between. Hope the weather has been kind wherever you are!

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. :)
