So I have been to wimpy to get the stach waxed yet. I think tomorrow is the day! I am getting a massage and facial and figure what the heck why not add it in. It has been a pretty busy week work wise and since I have been feeling pretty good not a lot of down time. My morning sickness has been sporadic and limited and not too severe at all. I am just more tired than I used to be. I spent some time this week going through my closet. A few of my wardrobe favorites are sadly no longer on the roster. My fitted dresses are too tight in the boobs and I feel like my mid section is so bloated it doesn’t look good. I haven’t really gained much if any weight yet so not sure what this is all about but I can say good bye belts- hello blazers! Its kind of like growing out your bangs. I am in this in between stage. Not yet showing but still bloating! Once I have the preggers belly I will have no problem with form fitting clothes because it is so obvious that you are preggers but right now I just look like I have a gut and big boobs- not hot. Maybe I should just forget about it and go full on white trash and wear some short shorts and let it all hang out! Not- I am instead camouflaging this by wearing loose fitting clothes and think that blazers are a miracle. Thank the good lord they are so in style. Like most working women, I have four different wardrobes that must needed a preggers overhaul:
- The work wardrobe. During the summer I wear a lot of wrap dresses or fitted dresses and heels. I am not feeling those at all right now so in order to stay professional and feel good about myself I have found that strait or shift dresses with a blazer and a statement necklace are the way to go. Good bye DVF wrap dresses for now. I bought a couple of really cute shift dresses one is black with sequins and the other is white but ruffled at the bottom super cute popping out of a blazer!. These are my two faves because they can go from work to out to dinner and still look great! Pants also are a non-issue so I can wear those with a loose fitted top and blazer as well. Always with some great jewelry and a pair of heels. I never leave home without a pair of cute flip flops stashed in my bag in case I have the opportunity to walk.
- The at home after work wardrobe. This consists of leggings or sweat pants and a comfy over sized top. In the summer a super casual T-shirt Dress is also great on those hot nights. I love to have cute lounge wear and try not to look like a Hague even when I feel like one. Sometimes I even grab one of hubbies tops which can look cute like a dress or over some leggings. Slouchy and soft. Plus he loves it when I wear his clothes. I haven’t had to make any adjustments to this wardrobe yet and am thinking I might be able to go through the whole pregnancy with what I have. Score!
- The running errands going to a casual bbq wardrobe. You never know who you might run into so I never leave the house without feeling pulled together. For me a maxi-dress or shirt dress with some flat sandals is my uniform. I throw on a stack of bangles and I am out the door. This is the best part of the preggy wardrobe. I get to feel stylish and oh so comfortable. I love the Gypsy05 maxi dresses especially and have been obsessed with Grayce by Molly Sims jewelry. It can dress up the most boring outfit! Note- ordered a size up in a couple maxis thinking I might want the room and I really didn’t need it. Another score!
- Going out wardrobe. When hubby and I go out on the town or for a dinner with the girls I like to bling it on. I bought the peach Halston Heritage Dress that Carrie wore in Sex and the City 2 and let me tell you it is fabulous for the pretty bi-otch. I saw another one pop up on ebay in blue and am thinking I might need it. It is that comfy and so cute and let me tell you NOTHING shows in that dress! I think it will be great for a September wedding I am going to and if I get the blue one that can go into winter. I also picked up a couple dressier maxi-dresses and am liking the strapless styles that have some draping in the front. I just ordered a gorgeous Cut 25 dress from Intermix that I think is going to work fab with some of my new jewels for a cocktail party I have to go to! Love- see you can be pregnant and fabulous!
How long do you think I can make it without going full on maternity? I think if I stick to lose fitting style I can go a long way without entering the dreaded maternity store- I don’t know why but I have a maternity store aversion. They just seem awful to me for some reason and I know they have come a long way and have some really cute styles but I digress. I have a girlfriend who never bought any maternity clothes-has anyone else?
