Flavors To Follow – Maternity Clothes

Yay!!  We’ve reached the end of the week again, who’s excited?  I’m excited, are you?  Based on the title of this post, you can probably guess what has been on my mind all this week.  As my belly slowly grows, my clothes are getting tighter and tighter.  For most my pants, I use a hair band to tie around the button and hook through the loops.  It’s a great alternative for the belly band as it’s a bit too hot to use that right now.  But soon enough, I know that the belly band will need to be in full use and then… maternity clothes!  But of course, maternity clothing doesn’t all have be frumpy and old lady looking, there’s lots of cute stores out there, thanks for my Twitter friends!  πŸ™‚

1 Someone please please please buy me this Asos floral dress, I can’t get over how pretty and comfy it looks!

2 Even pregnant mama-to-be’s need to look dazzling too, thanks to Isabella Oliver!

3 I find it a little random and ironic how Forever 21 now has a maternity section, but hey, their stuff is cheap so I’m not complaining!

4 If you are a regular blog follower, you know my love for maxi dresses runs deep.  Love the color of this one from A Pea In a Pod!

5 I think I could probably live in these Gap skinny jeans all fall/winter long!

6 I need this fun Lilac Clothing tunic paired with the skinny pants in #5!

7 Shabby Apple has the prettiest dresses and black is definitely slimming!

 If someone could buy me all of these things, I might, I said might just share a few pickles and string cheese with you.  πŸ˜‰  Because those are my current pregnancy cravings right now hehe.  Oh and Friday is the day that we find out the gender of our little precious bump!  Looks like the majority of you think I’m going to have a girl, based on the Guess Our Baby’s Gender poll over there on the right!  I’ll let you know next week if you are right!  πŸ™‚

Well, off I go to pack for three straight weeks of business trips, *sigh*.  I’m kind of looking forward to all the traveling to stop so I can just enjoy being home with the family and especially the new baby when he/she arrives!  22 more weeks to go (but hopefully less)!  πŸ™‚  Have a great weekend all!

P.S. This blog may be down over the weekend as I’m moving over to a bigger server to accommodate all the millions of photos I always post, so just a heads up!

Do you have any suggestions for maternity wear?

    I wear loose belly dress every day last summer and this summer! It’s perfect for my growing belly. I got mine at Forever 21, Wet Seal, and Aeropostale. They are all pretty cheap. You can wear them even when you are not pregnant. Also check Burington’s maternity section, they have very cheap maternity clothes and pants.

    You have done such a service to so many women! Thanks for this! Maternity wear (cute not frumpy) is really hard to find. Awesome!

  10. July 22, 2011 / 8:28 am

    I think maternity clothes can be so cute! Makes me want to have a baby…but that’s going to be quite a while for me. πŸ˜‰

  11. July 22, 2011 / 8:51 am

    I love the sparkly number #2! I would definitely buy this for a special event if I were expecting πŸ™‚

  12. July 22, 2011 / 10:37 am

    I LOVE wearing dresses when I was pregnant..and I also did the rubber band trick too!

    Check out target..they do have some cheap maternity clothes too!

  13. July 22, 2011 / 11:21 am

    I needed these suggestions a few months ago! Now I’m so close to the end that I refuse to buy more. I pretty much live in the James Jeans Twiggy maternity skinny jeans that I found on Zappos. Ann Taylor LOFT has some good options too and some of the drapey tops at Anthropologie make a good alternative to basic stretchy tees.

  14. July 22, 2011 / 11:28 am

    I’ve been eyeing that shabby apple dress for a while now… but with 3 weeks left, I think I’ll have to pass πŸ™‚

  15. July 22, 2011 / 11:30 am

    not sure if you have a “Ross” where you live but they have some great maternity clothes at really affordable prices.

  16. July 22, 2011 / 1:11 pm

    congrats on your pregnancy!! i’m loving that glitter dress…if you look good, you feel good!

  17. July 22, 2011 / 1:14 pm

    The sparkly sequin dress would be perfect for my husband’s company holiday party! Too bad I’ll be HUGE at 9 months pregnant by then!

    I was pleasantly surprised to see 2 racks of maternity clothes at my F21 last week. There weren’t too many options, but I scored a <$5 tank. I'm loving how most maternity tanks have higher necklines to cover my ever-growing chest/cleavage!

  18. July 22, 2011 / 1:45 pm

    forever 21 has a maternity section? interesting! do you have lululemon? I lived in their clothes when I was preggers πŸ™‚

  19. July 22, 2011 / 2:02 pm

    Sandy, I just love seeing your growing belly! LOFT and Old Navy also have super cute maternity! Also, I just bought tunic tops at H & M that worked through 9 months!

  20. July 22, 2011 / 4:50 pm

    SO excited for the weekend! with you 100% about that lades. lovely maternity selections and brilliant hair band idea too, gotta tell my pregnant gf’s about that. clever is what! happy traveling times, wishing you smooth journeys and an end to it soon. more home time with fams is eminent!

  21. July 22, 2011 / 7:38 pm

    i love maternity clothes that show off the bump. if uve got it flaunt it! haha

  22. July 22, 2011 / 11:27 pm

    I think maxi dresses look so good on women with baby bumps! They elongate the body but still shows off the cute bump!

  23. July 23, 2011 / 12:10 am

    I never said, CONGRATS! that is so exciting. I think maternity clothes are so cute. You’ll totally be the cutest pregnant person ever!

  24. July 24, 2011 / 7:28 am

    Dearest sweet sandy, these selection of maternity clothes are gorgeous! You always have such great taste! πŸ™‚
    Oh now im really excited to hear your little precious baby’s gender! So so so excited! hehe
    Have a lovely merry happy trip and i hope you are having an awesome sunday! Love to you!

  25. July 24, 2011 / 4:37 pm

    I think you should get all of these πŸ˜› Congrats again it is so exciting!

  26. July 25, 2011 / 6:22 pm

    All my maternity wear was from Target, Gap and F21…I didn’t buy any of the maternity line from F21 because I thought it was super boring. Instead I bought a lot of their $10 smocked dresses in large since they’re very generously cut πŸ˜‰

  27. August 18, 2011 / 6:53 am

    This is really a nice collection and i think this is the best maternity collection since all the ladies are looking so cute.These kind of clothes are only available at special stores
