April Maternity Wardrobe Picks
I've spent the last five years creating babies. I am currently 18 weeks into my fourth pregnancy, so we're talking 138 weeks (two and a half years!) of hormones, exhaustion, weight gain, anticipation, worry, and eventually, joy. I've also spent more time in athleisure wear and ill-fitting maternity clothes than my former fashionable self would care to admit.
There's no sugar-coating it. Clothing yourself during and after pregnancy sucks. I've shed many tears as I've dealt with my wardrobe woes throughout my last three babies. Nobody wants to show off their growing baby bump in clothes that are frumpy, cheap, droopy, tent-like, and uncomfortable! Unfortunately finding stylish, quality maternity wear that doesn't cost an arm and a leg is no small feat.
And like I said, this is pregnancy number four. I don't have time to go shopping! I run a small business and care for three little humans that suck the life out of me on a daily basis. I am running on fumes most days and would prefer to live in my pajamas, but at the end of the day that just makes me feel worse about myself.
This pregnancy, I am putting more effort into getting ready every day with the goal of appearing presentable. I've spent some time shopping online for new clothes, which takes time and inevitably results in the hassle of dealing with returns, but also motivates me to get off of my butt, take a shower, and put on some make up. It doesn't happen every day, but I sure am trying.
I've had some luck recently and found some pieces that I am loving this spring. I am particularly impressed with Loft and have found some great wardrobe staples there that I will probably wear straight through the fourth trimester.
Below you will find my absolute favorite maternity pieces (and links for easy shopping!) for the month of April.
