I have not abandoned my belly fashion stuff – I’ll post my weeks worth of outfits soon.
But since I recently declared that maternity shopping isn’t fun, I thought I’d reflect on some of my maternity clothing purchases (I’m doing this more as a way for me to STOP wanting to buy more stuff – even though I just bought a bunch of stuff yesterday).
I’ve picked up some things that aren’t available online (a few maternity t-shirts, a couple of dresses, some pants, and 2 sweaters from H&M’s Maternity line) but here is a quick roundup of what I’ve purchased so far.
OH – and all things (minus the H&M stuff) was pretty much purchased on sale. I can’t gush enough about Old Navy’s online maternity stuff. They usually have great deals and pretty cute stuff.

(in light khaki and tan)
This is probably one of my favorite shirts.
I just ordered some stuff from Old Navy & Gap yesterday but will wait until I receive them to determine if I like them.
So far, I’ve spent roughly $400 over the course of 4 months and have purchased:
- 2 pairs of maternity jeans
- 3 pairs of maternity pants (for work)
- 5 dresses
- 2 t-shirts
- 3 sweaters
- 9 tops
Not too shabby. After this most recent purchase, however, I think I’m done. It is amazing how the cost of clothing adds up when you really break it down (vs just buying things spread out over a few months and therefore only seeing the smaller incremental purchase prices).
