The BEST skirt EVER! Seriously.

Topic : Daily Glimpses

Since I am now on a mission for cute pregnancy clothes, I stumbled across a FABULOUS skirt.

It is a maternity maxi skirt but I do think that you could wear this pregnant or not (I certainly plan on wearing it post-baby).

Maternity Maxi by Nom, fabulous Anthro scarf

I wore this outfit today running errands and was totally comfortable all day. No falling down or stepping on the bottom, this skirt is the perfect length. Love it.
The skirt has a waistband that can either go over the bump or fold down, I’m wearing it folded down now but think that it will  cover a bump as it grows.

The scarf I have on is from Anthroplogie, I like scarves for a pop of color, they add flair.
Scarves are also great when you are fresh pregnant and people wonder if you are actually expecting or have just been overindulging in treats/wine/whatever. They cover a variety of bumps, lumps and on a rough day- spills. 🙂

The skirt is off and is by NOM maternity wear. This is the not the first piece I have gotten by NOM, I also got the dress I wore in this post by NOM. The dress can also be worn after baby comes and I think no one would ever know it was a maternity piece.

I recommend NOM, the clothes are comfy and the dress washed great (no shrinking, no fading).

Thought you might like to see a picture of our first baby, Miss Avery, she liked the skirt too….

Me, Avery and Bump

As I look at these pics I think the bump was having a camera shy day but I assure you that baby is wiggling and growing.
I did a morning yoga practice and baby was moving right along with me- very cool to feel. 🙂

I did some more momma clothes shopping today, looked at less expensive stores-Gap, Old Navy, and Destination Maternity.

It took quite awhile, I have now learned to try everything on cause with a changing body, there is no telling what your “normal” size will fit like and then there is the variance in brands/cuts/lengths.

I feel like I’ve done some good work and might have some good finds for bump dressing and also for those of us with long torsos (maternity tanks fit non-pregnant bellies like long tanks- brilliant!).

I do promise the blog isn’t going to be all pregnancy (although it IS fun!), I’m gonna have a green smoothie recipe tomorrow for you that should be a keeper. 🙂

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
