I'm wearing this outfit around the house today. But although I'm now on maternity leave, it's probably best classified as a work outfit, as I wore it to the office pretty frequently in my third trimester.
- Blue plastic necklace: Cheapo costume jewelry. Cost: $6. Cost per wear $0.05
- Geometric-print Talbot's wrap dress: Thrifted. Cost : $4. Cost per wear: $0.40.
- Brown flats: Privo by Clarks. Cost: $80. Cost per wear: $0.80.
Total Cost: $89.
Total Cost Per Wear (so far): $1.25.
I have to admit I was surprised to find myself buying a Talbot's dress, even second-hand--they seemed to be a lot more fashion-forward lately. As you can maybe tell from how it rides up in front, it's not actually a maternity dress, but it's plenty stretchy enough to work as one, and should be good for nursing as well. Oh how I love a surplice neckline (and a geometric print)... I can't wait to sew some post-pregnancy!
Belly-showing side view:
Ok, off for an exhausted pregnant lady nap. Maybe Cartoonist Baby will see fit to show up in time for Father's Day?
P.S. I am quite gratified to report that I have made it through the past three months without A SINGLE PAIR OF PANTS. For real. All my maternity pants (except for one pair of maternity jeans and one pair of maternity leggings) stopped fitting in March, but with the warm weather on its way, I bravely soldiered on in dresses and skirts alone with no trouble whatsoever.
