Pregnancy Style: Second Trimester

Y'all know I'm a little bit of a clothes horse, so it's important to me to have some cute pieces even though I'm pregnant.  It's also important to NOT to have to buy a bunch of "maternity" clothes because a) they are ridiculously expensive and b) they aren't even that cute if you ask me.  I want pieces that can be worn (with a few exceptions) after pregnancy as well and aren't super pricey.

Here are a few items I have found that work with a growing belly to get me through the rest of Summer and hopefully through most of Fall.  I have to admit I broke down and bought some "maternity" bottoms.  A pair of shorts to get me through Summer and some jeans to get me through Fall and Winter.  The key is that I didn't break the bank.  I checked out Jessica Simpson's maternity line which is at a good price point.  Of course I've always loved all things J. Simps, so why would her maternity line be any different?  I honestly was really surprised when I tried on some of her jeans and they fit me perfectly!

Right now I'm still able to get into some of my shorts that ride low, so I'm hoping I can make it through without having to buy any more "maternity" shorts.  

I will admit I broke down and put on the maternity jeans the other day.  
I let comfort win out on that one.

Tops and dresses are another story.  Between my large bust and growing waistline, I am all about the loose, flowy top/dress right now.  Luckily it's very easy to find non-maternity styles that fit loosely.  I found all of these on a killer sale.

I wore the Irina Top the other day and I absolutely love it!
