thrifty threads: maternity + tot style

I asked Chris to snap a few photos after I spent a fun morning with the kiddos at a local park. Ames Emmanuel, always the entertainer, couldn’t help himself and jumped right into the party. Hey, the more the merrier for this not-so-fashion blogger. Friends who have blessed me with clothes, let me know if you recognize one of your pieces!

I’ve never been super pregnant in the warm months, and I’m still not exactly sure how to dress these poor legs. We appear to be headed into a spring & summer full of maxi skirts, so please send me any across which you stumble! Don’t forget, I’m on a quest to stick to second-hand items for the entire year. Cheers to a sweaty third trimester!

  1. I love your effortlessly cool style AND the fact that this isn’t a fashion blog. It’s refreshing to read a woman’s blog that’s not all about clothes and more about family and the human spirit (both the highs and the lows)! I’m also loving all the posts this week. I check in on your blog daily and love reading your posts!

  2. So, I guess it’s not technically second-hand, but I got an awesome maxi skirt at Target for like $15 recently. It’s a purple chevron type pattern, and the fold over top makes it perfect for maternity and afterward. Just a suggestion :)
