Another pregnancy grievance? Maternity clothes.
(Sorry if you own this shirt or like it.)
Ugggghhh. Most make you look like a blimp/tent and the selection stinks. I also have a major issue with maternity shirts that tie in the back.
WHY is the necessary?? I cut a few ties off the back of maternity shirts with Maddie and they worked out just fine. For some reason they instantly make me feel like a frumpy mommy. There are quite a few cute things online, but you never know how something will fit. It's so much more work to dress cute when pregnant.
My 10 year high school reunion is next weekend and my bump is getting past the point where I can wear normal dresses, so this morning I dreadfully set out to find something cute made for a growing belly. Ha. I found a "maybe" dress at Old Navy (in the regular clothes section, go figure) but it borders on the line of a tent. I then headed to Motherhood Maternity. I have mixed feelings about this store. Some things are cute, but over 50% of what they carry has the dreaded tie in the back. I was browsing through the racks when I saw a very unconventional piece of maternity wear: a super short sequined mini skirt.
If it was less than $20 I would have bought it because it was so ridiculous. When I say "mini", I don't mean "conservative mini". I mean if my 17 year old sister was wearing it with heels my dad would not let her out of the house. And sequins? I was laughing SO hard. I might have to go back this weekend just to take a picture. Maybe I'm just bitter because I'm not a cute pregnant person. More power to the person who can look good in this thing while trying to cover a basketball belly.
Motherhood Maternity, thank you for providing a good laugh today.
