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).

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 amazon.com 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….

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. 🙂
