sweat shop

these are the sweatpants i have worn 5 out of 7 days a week for the last 10 weeks. i love them. i have become a stereotype and i don't care who knows it. i was even able to ride my bike to the park with the kidlets and go down the slide without showing my bizness to the world. so, maybe sweatpants aren't of the devil. 

scarf- express
cardigan- old navy
t shirt- target
sweaties- spalding
sneaks- converse via target

and after not liking anything for sale anywhere(the worst morning sickness side effect) here are a few things that have thrilled my eye in the past week or so:


talbots. you had me at houndstooth. i want to get this and hostess a christmas party. but not do any of the work or planning. i'll just direct the merry maids and the caterers. 

and it is my goal is to not look like i am wearing maternity clothes. because 99% of maternity clothes are ugly. UGLY. par example:
i find the belly ruching completely unnecessary. yes, i am gigantic. let's emphasize it with a strategically placed waistband and pleating.

but this is acceptable. even the horizontal stripes are flattering. (most likely because she weighs 98lbs pre-maternity.)

and this is my idea of a diaper bag:

So where are those adorable maternity clothes from? Do I need to sell my car to afford them? I love that you are rocking sweats right now since my wardrobe is pajama bottoms as much as possible!

My request: that you document what you wear all the way through your pregnancy for all us maternity-wear-paralyzed group.

(Not that I'm rejoining the maternity-wear group soon. But still.)

I'm sure that the same styles that you wear today will still work for me in 2020.

Thank you in advance.
