finding affordable, stylish maternity clothes is just as difficult as i thought it would be. i finally managed to find a pair of cute, inexpensive, black maternity skinny jeans:
$28.99 from kiki's fashions. black is the only color of denim i'm allowed to wear to work, so finding a pair was a top priority on my clothing list. now i can stop wearing the one increasingly uncomfortable pair that still sort of fit me. huzzah!
i've been looking to a lot of non-maternity places for items that might work. forever 21 has a lot of cute tops with bump-friendly cuts, for a fraction of the price of most maternity stores:
$11.50, available in 4 colors
another awesome maternity site is yesstyle.com. you have to weed through a fair amount of items that are $100+, but there are some pretty good deals to be found.
if i could afford topshop maternity i would probably buy everything they offer. i particularly LOVE this adorable flowered cardigan (US size 6 if anybody wants to make my year):
on the other hand, it is extremely easy to find affordable, adorable baby clothes. seriously, i want to have a little girl just for this amazing ensemble:
$36.95 for the set, available from punkbabyclothes.net. the cupcake? the tutu? UH-MAZING.
