You don's have to be pregnant to wear maternity clothes!!

That is right!! Apparently, maternity clothes are not what they used to be when I was pregnant with any of my 3 kids! Matter of fact, when pregnant with my first child, the most stylish maternity apparel all looked like large tents! By the time my 3rd child surprised us, workout clothes that were worn as everyday apparel was the trend, so I spent 9 months looking like I had just hit the gym, although my expanding ass was proof to the contrary! Well....I have discovered a love for Liz Lange maternity wear! Her XS sizes always end up on the 75% off rack at Target, because let's be real here.....when you are 9 months pregnant....I don't think anyone is an XS!!! So my tip of the day is not to scoff at the maternity rack...treasures can be found where you least expect them! The dress I am wearing today is much loved because of its fabulous sleeves.

Liz Lange for Target maternity dress- $7.98

Anne Michelle shoes- $12.99 Ross

Faux Python Bag- $49.50 MYBAG outlet (this is our family handbag in our shop costs over $49.50!)


  1. You know you really have a knack for taking something very ordinary or something that we would not even think of wearing again and turn it into something fab. I would not have thought of wearing anything maternity unless I was pregnant or in a situation that I have not lost the baby weight. All of my maternity clothes were very average looking and drab except for the ones that I borrowed from you in my third preganancy. Maternity clothes have come a long way since I was pregnant. The maternity dress looks great and appears not to have the "pooch" out front. Well done as always.

  2. Thanks Jen! have a couple of Liz Lange maternity items that are cute! Definitely check it out the next time you are at Target!
