11 Weeks: My Mom's Sweater

Wednesday, July 25, 2012
thrifted bag, $3 (similar); Ann Taylor sweater (similar); thrifted white belt, $2 (similar); refashioned Forever 21 maxi skirt, $5 (similar); Naturalizer sandals, $60

When I was on the east coast, my mom bought me this sweater. She has one just like it. Usually, I hate everything my mom buys me, but this one is actually okay, I think. I don't know. Looking at it now makes me wonder.. It's certainly roomy, which is always a plus in my book!

My wardrobe has drastically been reduced to stretchy skirts and baggy pants, which is like 5 things... Not because I'm already so huge, but because any pressure on my stomach area makes me want to puke so right now my outfits have consisted of the baggiest and loosest clothing I have, which is like I said 5 things. Everything has been packed away already and I'm wondering if I'm ever going to see my dear clothes again :(. I think I deserve an ice cream sandwich.

  3. Such a cute look, particularly with the pop of color from the shoes. I like the sweater slouchy ... you got a little peplum going on with the belting. And yes, always yes, to ice cream sandwiches .... :)

  4. you may be able to just get a few things a size or two larger (Target? thrift?) since you are petite... then you can take them in later if you want. ginger is supposed to help nausea....but I only know this from rumor, not from experience.

  8. Ugh, I know what you mean about the pressure. I look at girls that belt their outfits when pregnant and start to feel like I'm suffocating and/or about to puke.

    Target always has $3 off Liz Lange maternity clothes coupons that you can print out (coupons.target.com - oops, dont have any available right now) and there's always a bunch of stuff in the clearance racks, so I was able to buy a few things for pretty cheap. Wearing the same things every other day is no fun, but I'm sure you'll be able to get creative!
