Getting dressed used to seem difficult. I'd often moan and complain about having nothing to wear. Then I got pregnant and getting dressed actually became really REALLY difficult.
Like, shoot yourself in the foot to avoid leaving the house, spend all day in your pajamas, live in leggings and hate your life difficult.
Yes, I am aware. We are only talking about clothes. It is not really that big of a deal.
I am only 21 weeks pregnant and my belly is actually not even that huge yet. But, trust me, it is actually really a pain in the butt to get dressed. None of my normal clothes fit anymore. Like, none. I got a pack of maternity underwear in the mail yesterday and can I just tell you that it was the single most joyous moment of my life. There is nothing worse than having to wear underwear that are too small. Trust me.
Anyway, so here we are. I've been hiding from this blog since November because I hated the thought of having to take an outfit picture. Shopping for maternity clothes is the worst. Hardly any stores actually stock them in store so you're forced to buy online and half the time, when you do, it looks absolutely shocking on. Shocking I tell you. The fit of maternity garments is truly atrocious and who honestly knows how you are supposed to know your size... my size is literally morphing on a daily basis. So I haven't really bought anything and the few things I have bought I've been unhappy with. Jeans that have a saggy bum, tank tops that stretch out, tops that look like pajamas. It's not good guys.
I refuse to completely lose the small smidgen of style I once had just because I'm pregnant.
So, I'm pledging an outfit post a week. If, for no other reason, than to force myself into something worthy of being worn outside the house. I've been living in a pair of maternity leggings I found at Target back in December and while they have been a lifesaver they are starting to bobble in all the wrong places. Now let's be honest, I need to maintain some shrivel of self-respect during this time, and I'm pretty sure that getting out of those leggings is the first step.
