Today’s Lovely Ever After post is for you ladies who are pregnant, or plan to be soon, from my friend & fellow blogger (and current preggo) Cris of Kiss My Tulle. Kiss My Tulle is a website devoted to helping engaged couples create the wedding of their dreams on a manageable budget, and this post follows that same budget-friendly, practical advice. Cris is sharing her pregnant (and plus-sized) must-haves today. Take it away, Cris!
I’m a little over 5 months pregnant and HUGE. Like, in the last 2 years I managed to lose 60+ pounds and (I’m not exaggerating) I think I have gained them all back – mostly during my first miserable trimester. I was nauseous 24/7 for 12 weeks and the only thing that made me feel better was eating McDonald’s French fries. A LOT of McDonald’s French fries. So none of my clothes fit and I’ve had to buy some new clothes to accommodate my new weight (and my new baby bump). Here are my favorites (they’re VERY budget-friendly):
Sweet Dreams Maternity Wear Maternity Leggings // Maternity Cropped Denim Jacket // Maternity Chevron-Striped Maxi Skirt // Maternity Polka-Dot Side-Shirred Tank // Naughty Monkey Bullet Knee-High Boot // Quiksilver Azalea Shirt // Basic Athletic Rib Racerback 2×1 Tank Top
Thanks, Cris. I had a very similar experience during my first trimester, although I just ate a lot of carbs to battle my nausea. I love Cris’s wardrobe picks. Leggings, tanks, maxi skirts & dresses, and ballet flats were also staples of mine. I also extended my pre-preggo wardrobe with one of these (actually, a couple) which helped with work pants and jeans for a while before I wore maternity pants (and for a few weeks postpartum as well).
