Maternity Clothes at 35 weeks in Iowa= Difficult.

Remember one of my first posts on maternity clothes and fashion? If you don't, it was basically saying you should still wear cute clothes, don't be frumpy and/or wear moo-moos, etc. That was all fine and dandy in the summer. Now,  the weather was is cooling down here in good ol' Iowa. And by cooling down, I mean I am freezing here. Although the seasons are changing, trees are gorgeous here, and I can wear is very different being pregnant in this weather. Talk about layering!

The worst part: I only have 5 weeks left and I just now can't fit into my regular tops. What are the freaking odds!? This sucks big time because I need to decide if I should buy long sleeve bigger tops or suck it up and just make it work with what I have. I literally had to ask Jason to borrow a long sleeve shirt to sleep in because I only have a couple that fit. I don't want to spend the money on clothes I'm only going to be wearing for a couple weeks, but I also want to still look cute. I know...I have major life problems.

I realize this is silly and I should not even have the right to complain. I'm sorry about that. Even as a write this I almost regret even starting. It is what it is and this is what is going on in my head right now. I'm thinking a trip to a consignment store may need to happen.

As of now, I am living in leggings (which aren't maternity and getting too small too), long sleeves, Uggs, and scarves. I am trying to make these comfy outfits cute, but I don't think it's working out great. Here is me at 35 weeks and bundled. :)

As my previous fashion maternity post stated: I refuse to be frumpy, but I also can admit when I am wrong and being crazy. At 35 weeks, comfort and warmth are taking priority and I can only hope I don't look like a total slob when I'm out and about. I am starting to eat my words with that post...


  1. I hated maternity clothes at the end look great in the picture though by the way! My two cents (not that you asked - definitely visit a consignment shop or go shopping and get a couple things you love. The last few weeks can get long...and you want to look and feel your best! :) Thanks for friending me on FB!

    1. Thanks! I don't mind your two cents...I will take it! I'm going to go to TJ Maxx or Marshalls and see if I can find some cheap sweaters. Good thing long sweaters are in! :)
