Since I have tried desperately to avoid showing that I'm "showing," I have had to rethink my whole wardrobe situation. In the first trimester, I gained only two-four pounds, so that really isn't much. However, on someone as thin as I am, extra weight gain in a particular area is pretty darn obvious, and those extra pounds went nowhere other than my midsection. When I wear leggings and tees around the house, Jeff points at me and yells, "BUMP!" One of my male coworkers actually picked up on the pregnancy because I stopped dressing the way I used to dress, shirts tucked in and pants belted. It's all about looser, untucked tops now. Since I am a terrible liar, if someone sniffed it out like a shark with blood in the water, I answered honestly and sheepishly.
Anyway, I worked with a black and white base by just adding some color. A lot of people complimented the look, which is half-comprised of gifts from other people.
Blazer: Mossimo via Target
Flats: Merona via Target
Earrings: New York & Co. (recent--got these bad boys for $6)
Pants: ummm...they're from Motherhood Maternity, and my mom bought them because the pant situation has become awkward, and belly bands do nothing other than ride up on me. I miss my pants already, but I do not enjoy buttons stabbing me in the abdomen.
Shirt: gift from my co-teacher :) It's from Old Navy--I love it!
Necklace: gift from Momma while she was on an RV trip with Dad
This dog is lucky she's cute because she covered my sleeves in mud when she jumped on me.
I have also worn the blazer like this:
