the worst pregnancy advice…

Hey guys! In the wake of all this craziness it kinda feels weird to be talking about shopping, but us pregnant people still need clothes as our bumps grow right?! Especially if this clothes thing has been a struggle for you like it’s been for me!!!

I remember when I first got pregnant TONS of people told me to NOT spend money on maternity clothes…this by FAR has been the most terrible advice people gave me lol!!

The last few months I have been SO happy that I started spending money on maternity clothes! If you really look they have some store that have TONS of cute clothes that aren’t too expensive! And let me tell you, it makes ALL the difference in the world that your clothes fit right just to make you feel better!!!

Towards a certain point, even when your shirts fit, your belly gets so out there that you look like Winnie the poo with the bottom or your belly hanging out – THIS is a issue for me pahahaha!

Anyway! My advice to any pregnant woman would be to definitely spend the money on making yourself feel good with new clothes that are made to FIT that prego tummy!

I lived all winter in my lululemon leggings and in the past few weeks I was like okay, I need shorts!!! And T-shirt’s that will cover this stomach!! It’s about to be hot as heck around here in Louisiana and I need something to throw on and go but still feel comfortable!

My first purchase were THESE soft shorts you see in the picture! BEST BUY EVER! After that it was on and I purchased a few more things!!

Linking some websites below that I love to shop on for pregnancy stuff and linking some clothes I already have/are in my cart below that!!

PINK BLUSH MATERNITY

H&M MATERNITY

BOOHOO MATERNITY

this website has some great stuff but it’s hit or miss, I end up returning half the bag when I get it but it’s worth it to find good pieces. Once you get the sizing down your good!

ASOS MATERNITY

ruches side maternity shorts | $32

I’d order a size up in these if you want a little bit more looseness in your legs.

Cotton T-Shirt | $18

These are technically not maternity shirts, but they come low enough to cover the belly!!’

most comfy bralettes

Okay so I know I’m not the norm but I have ALWAYS, ALWAYS, slept with a bra on! To the point where I can even sleep with a wire bra on haha! Now since getting pregnant, not so much with the wire, but still with a bra!

I found these when searching for the perfect stretchy + comfy one to sleep in and after having two for the past 5 months I recently went and got two more and decided to share with you guys!!

They are priced so well too!!

Linking them below!

cute “dad” sneakers

I know this whole big chunky sneaker thing is in. I think it’s a dad sneaker, maybe not? Bottom line is that I’m not super cook enough to wear them, but then I laid my eyes on this pair. It’s a mild version of the dad sneaker in my opinion, and I can pull that off. The price is fabulous too!

White sneaker | $79

These do run SMALL, size up a WHOLE size!

Lululemon Dupes

Hey y’all! Who else here loves running around in their workout leggings probably more then they actually work out in them?! Pahaha! I am totally guilty! Normally if you see me legitimately anywhere besides work, I’m probably in them! Of course I work out in them too, but to me they are the easiest/most comfy thing to throw on and go!!

Black legging | $28

Comes in tons of colors

At this point in my life I’d say I’m a leggings cynosure. I’ve tried them all – and like most things in life, you get what you pay for! You used to catch me wanting a billion pairs of cute cheap leggings from target, forever or wherever I could get them. But that all changed the day I put on a pair of Lulus. I NEVER looked back! Not only do they feel amazing, they LAST, they don’t ride up when your actually working out & they make your booty look fabulous! … the only problem is that they are around $80. That doesn’t stop me, I probably have about 6 plain black pairs and a few other colors. To me they are worth the investment because they are something I constantly wear. The “align” pant is my favorite after the “wonder under” because it’s got a silky smooth feeling that’s light weight and allows your skin to breath while you work out, as opposed to the wonder under that’s thicker and feels very hot to me. (I usually bring these to Colorado when we go every year to walk around in + to wear under my ski pants! That’s how warm they are to me).

Anyway while Lululemon and Girlfriend Collective (the white set I’m wearing in the picture) are my favorite this whole post is about the black leggings pictured above that I recently found!!

You can find those by clicking HERE , I was pretty impressed when I tried these on. After hearing the reviews I was like okay, I gotta find out for myself! These are so similar to the texture of the align but a pinch thicker and they are not cropped! I haven’t worked out in them yet but have worn them running errands and I never found myself pulling them up or feeling like they were ridding either up or down! They are just as high waisted as the Lulus and come in a ton of colors! They are a MAJOR fraction of the price and long story short I bought two more pairs! At lululemon I normally wear a 6 and so I decided to go with a medium here which was perfect for me!!

If y’all have any questions I can always help!!

Recent Amazon Buys!

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! Hoping on today to share some of my recent amazon buys! Click the link below the picture to be taken to the product!

Tassel Earrings | $15

these again are the dupes for a $60 dollar earring. I have both the dupe and the real deal and the only difference is that the materials in the cheaper one obviously aren’t as nice, but it all looks the same on your ear and no one is studying it that hard! Let’s put it this way, I now have every color of the dupe. I wouldn’t buy them for $60 again. They come in all these colors below.

Link will take you to all tassel colors

Star Sneaker | $43

Dupe for the golden goose sneaker, that range from $200 – $500. Big difference here is they don’t come looking already dirty and scuffed up, buttt it’s cool, I’m sure I’ll get them dirty on my own in no time! They are super cute, I got my normal 8.5, they are comfy but I technically could have done a 9. Id size up if I reordered.

Halter Neck Tank | $15

Simple tank that looks so cute tucked in or out with tons of different types of bottoms. It’s made nicely and it’ll be perfect to transition into fall with a sweater thrown over it!

Shredded Memory Foam Pillow | $60

Plan on doing a whole post on this but sharing it here for now until I can get to it.

Earring Back Extras | $5.00

Because we all need extra earring backs ALLL the time! This comes with 1200 pieces! Your welcome!
