Fierce OOTD: Reworking the Wardrobe

Black Leggings

While I thought I could rock all of my pre-preggo clothes for a few months, this munchkin had different plans!  Within weeks my hips were widening and my baby bump has officially popped.  So that meant that I was going to be shopping sooner than I thought.  But before shelling out a bunch of money on a wardrobe that will only last for 9 months, I had to shop my closet and see what I could I still work with and what I actually needed.


Target Dress{Striped Dress: Target; Black Leggings: New York and Company; Ballet Flats: Famous Footwear}

I found this dress in the back of my closet that I bought from Target last Fall.  I only wore it twice because the length was very deceiving.  It covered my butt as long as I was standing (yeah, no bueno!).  So to breathe some new life into it, I broke out my leggings whose elastic band is very forgiving (and super comfortable!)  I found this combo a lot of fun and wondered why I never thought of it before.

Sidenote: Can I just say how much I love these sunglasses?  I bought them at Kirstin Marie’s Clotheshound event a few weeks back and I’ve been wearing them ever since.  I can’t go anywhere without my shades!

Brown sunglasses

My other best friends in my closet right now?  Anything with a stretchy waist (love my jeggings!), my jersey and knit dresses, and my stretchy Tees and camis that work magic under my blazers.  I’ve only had to buy a few maternity pieces as well as some plus size dresses so no major cash spent!


Have you had to shop your closet lately?

      Thank you! Yes, I’ve already bought a maxi already. I’m going to be living in them!

  4. I think that’s a good idea to shop your closet before running out to buy maternity wear! You should check your local thrift shop! I feel like I ALWAYS see maternity brands there!

      Oh for sure! I’ve started shopping at a few shops out here but no luck just yet. Hopefully what I have will last at least another month before I have to really start shopping again
