Shoes: Sole Envy
Necklace: It’s a real leaf dipped in bronze. I got it at a Christmas gift expo.
First of all, can you tell that I love Papaya? It’s my favorite shop ever! They always have the cutest items that are still in style on their $3, $5, $7, and $10 clearance racks!
Well, this week, I went to the mall to try and find maternity clothing. Everything was over-priced, in my opinion, not that cute, and bulky/bulgy in areas it didn’t need to be. So, giving up, my husband and I walked past Papaya, which was having a sale. typically when we go to the mall, I always check into Papaya and buy at least one item of clothing. I walked past it–no reason for me to go in since I was pregnant and they don’t sell maternity clothing. But then, I just couldn’t handle not seeing the clearance items…so we walked in.
I found some really cute maxi dresses (including the one above). The mediums (my normal size) fit perfectly and the neckline was in the perfect place. But…it was an inch or so above my ankles and fit too snuggly to ignore the fact that I was just going to get bigger in the next few months. So, I tried the large. Perfect length, and a very comfy fit with an undershirt, and room for my belly to grow!
So, I bought two–this neutral colored one, and a pink, tan, and navy blue one for $15 each. I also bought a $3 undershirt and two $5 long-sleeved cardigans. I’m so happy!
It’s not maternity clothes, but it’s comfy and it’s cute, and I feel good in it! And isn’t that all that really matters? I have to say I am thankful for maxi dresses/skirts!
When did you start wearing maternity clothes? Did you like them?
