A Little Extra

We as women already constantly complain about having nothing to wear, I don’t know anyone who looks into their closet and says “Wow, I love all my clothes and I look good in all of them and there are just too many good outfits to try on here, and ohhh I think today it will take the usual five minutes of picking out an outfit because they are all just that good.”

Unless I just won the lottery, and the last time I checked I never won anything in my life, this scenario just doesn’t play out.

So to the point… me being myself and not pregnant I always have nothing to wear, and I can only imagine what my closet situation will be like when I need to find maternity clothes that I feel good in… because of this struggle that I know exists I want to share with you what I would be wearing if I were pregnant!

I’m going to choose more elegant clothes here, because I think it will be important to feel good when pregnant. I imagine when in the apartment I will be lounging in a glamorous silk pj number, or a chic satin gown, maybe matching cashmere? Lol, just kidding .. or am I? 😉 

So like I said, when in the apartment I will probably be wearing oversized tees and some Victoria’s Secret pajamas from like 7 years ago. But when I go out, I plan on looking fabulous, and I mean that. So here is what I will be wearing when I’m feeling A Little Extra a/k/a Pregnant…

All of these dresses are from Nordstrom.com and they are all under $299 

At first glance these dresses may not look that special but with the right hair, makeup, bag, shoes, confident attitude, and hello the price tag – they are special.

I can see myself wearing these for many different pregnancy occasions and they are all flattering and photo-ready.

Pregnancy shopping doesn’t seem so bad after all 😛
