The dreaded maternity shopping

I’m slowly reaching the point where I can’t wear many of the clothes in my closet, especially my dresses. I finally decided it was time to hit the mall in search of at least one dress option for work. It’s a super busy time of year for me, with some traveling so I want to look and feel good and not frumpalicious.

Mall maternity shopping was a complete bust, very disappointing. Old Navy had next to nothing and Motherhood (which I went into with much hesitation) was not my cup of tea. Lesson learned, stick with online shopping.

Plan B – I hit up my favorite non-maternity stops, Gap and Loft. And score at Loft.

I really wanted this, but they didn’t have my size:


So I settled on these two (40% off, BTW!)…after MUCH debate at home (sorry Josh) and many texts to my brother (who tells the brutal truth)…identical cotton dresses, just different patterns. A little bit big now, but will be perfect mid-summer:

                                                                                                                           stripe                                                      yellow

Today, I broke out the yellow dress. After a quick text and seal of approval from my brother, I’m feeling pretty good today!

    Are those maternity dresses? How come the models don’t have big prego bellies?
