March Clothing Haul...

Morning lovelies!! I am now officially 20 weeks pregnant, which means I am halfway there friends! I can't believe how quick the time is going by. With 20 weeks of pregnancy under my growing belt, it was time to purchase a few items to expand my wardrobe. I had been checking out my local thrift stores, but was not having much luck. Things were getting a bit too snug, so I decided it was time to order a few things to keep this growing belly covered. 

I always have a hard time shopping for maternity clothes. I am plus size, so I find it is harder to find a good selection of cute maternity clothes. I also hate to spend a lot on clothing...whether I am pregnant or not. I chose items that could last me throughout my pregnancy and after, while I am still sporting that mama belly after delivery :)

The first place I ordered from was Wal-Mart. I ordered the skirts below. I got them each for under $13. I found black, gray, and red online. I then snagged the same style skirt in a black patterned, a pink patterned (pictured below), navy, and black and white stripes in store. These are not maternity. I ordered a size up. I will be living in maxi skirts this pregnancy. They are super comfortable and all of these have a shirred waistband. That means they fit nicely under my belly and can be worn throughout my pregnancy. Being able to stretch my wardrobe as much as I can really saves me. The material is also lightweight, so I should stay nice and cool when the July heat really hits me. 

To go with these skirts I found a few shirts at Wal-Mart. I tried to find pictures online, but did not have luck finding an exact match. They look similar to the one below. I got them each for $6. I snagged them in a few different colors, so I could mix and match with all the skirts I bought. 

I have a few layer tanks and shirts I will wear underneath. This will allow me to wear them a bit longer, as my belly grows.

The last place I ordered from was Downeast Basics. I love Downeast. I only shop their clearance and sale items. I also stick to just their layering tees. They are very versatile and are so dang comfy. I ordered a classic tee in rum stripe and two essential tees in orange and cordovan. These shirts are super long. I have these in a few solid colors as well. I am waiting for their black and white to go on sale because I am loving layering those under the shirts I bought from Wal-mart. Super cozy!

So there you have it. My short and sweet clothing haul for March. I'll be sure to share if I order anything fun in April. Let me know how you all are saving on clothes and what deals you've been finding :)

and a few shots of me at 20 weeks in my new clothes :)

  2. I am with you on not spending a lot on maternity clothes, I do have a question if you don't mind answering, why do you ware layering shirts, it s not to hot with two shirts on ?

  3. I am 19 weeks and just started getting some maternity clothes. Great suggestions!

  5. You look lovely and healthy! May the next 20 weeks go easily for you.

  6. You are so right about finding plus size maternity clothes. I had a baby last August and had some luck with the maternity dresses at Old Navy- they often run really big, so you might have some luck with them.
