It has been quite a while since I have done one of these posts! I planned on doing them with my maternity purchases, but I just fell behind. Anyway, my goal is to be as transparent as possible about what I buy, clothing-wise, so I am bringing it back!
1.b&w stripe shirt ($25) I was looking for some shirts that would be good for nursing and this one fit the bill. Plus, I was able to purchase it in a "tall" size (I have a freakishly long torso). I really enjoyed the similar maternity version I picked up, so I am excited about this top.
2. This sweatshirt tank dress is really wonderful. I have seen a few bloggers wear it and I had been eying it... then I found it on sale for $14 and sold in "tall..." Well, it was an easy purchase. It's crap for nursing (my justification for buying anything new this month), but it will be great down the road.
3. You all saw this leather trimmed cardigan on the blog already ($24.97) which goes to show how much I love it. I already have a ton of cardigans, but I love that this one seems like a light jacket.
4. marled turtleneck sweater ($19.99) So I totally fell in love with this when I saw Caroline wearing it. And then F21 was having a buy one get one free sale, so.... I bought it. And I love it. It's quite cozy.
5. Remember when I wore this outfit? Well that button tunic (similar) from F21 turned out to be a great postpartum shirt. It's loose and long, and the buttons are great for nursing. I bought a black one and a maroon one (not pictured) during the F21 BOGO sale. Two shirts for $13.99!
6. Haha, this b&w tank from Old Navy was $3... and helped me to qualify for free shipping :)
7. I really love this fair isle sweater. It fits well (because I found it in "tall") and the colors are different than anything else I own. $17.97
8. I've been meaning to mention these high waist jeans I picked up at Target last month. They have actually been worn in all of the outfits I've posted this month because, well, they are the only jeans that fit. Someone gave me the advice to buy a new pair of jeans postpartum so that you don't stress about your old pairs that don't fit. I'm glad I took the advice, because I would probably be running around pant-less if I hadn't. I spent $29.99 - again, totally worth it.
9. I thought this navy tunic ($14) buttoned and would be good for nursing. It doesn't button (it was purchased online), but I think it will be a good work shirt so I decided to keep it.
10. Who spends $27.99 on sweatshirt? Turns out I do. I bought this back in December to wear at home and I think it has paid for itself 3 times over in cost per wear (I wore it in this post). I looooove it. I wear it when I'm at home over nursing tanks and it's great over leggings (it's tunic length). It also has a glove-y thing (I don't really know how to describe it... you wear it over your hands and your thumb pokes through) and it's super soft and comes in lots of great colors. Highly recommended.
11. I got this plaid blouse for free in the F21 BOGO sale and it's quite nice. The sleeves have a bell shape that I don't love, but when rolled it looks decent. It's also (surprise!) a good nursing shirt which is a win for me.
Definitely a lot more than I usually spend, but it was over the course of two months and I just had a baby for Pete's sake. Okay, I promise I won't keep using that excuse.
