Stripes and Pink

Hi, friends! First off, thanks so much for your excitement about our big announcement! I'll try to spread out the pregnancy- and baby-related posts, but no guarantees :)

Since it's Friday and Friday usually means a little fashion, I thought I would share one of my favorite articles of maternity clothing with you, excluding leggings. I didn't owned a pair of leggings until now and can't believe what I've been missing!

We'll talk about the slippery slope of leggings some other time. Today, I'm talking about bright pink skinny cords! I wear them about once a week and looooove them! I pair them with almost everything: sparkle TOMS, boots, sneakers, striped tops, solid tops, and whatever else will fit from my wardrobe.
The above picture was snapped the morning of the 20 week ultrasound. The one where we found out our baby Lentil is a baby girl! In defense of my seemingly girly outfit, I was also wearing a navy and white striped top. Which is another thing, I can't.quit.stripes! Some pregnant ladies crave pickles and ice cream. Apparently I crave striped maternity clothes :)
One more thing. This post wasn't sponsored by Gap Preggo Maternity, but I have some mad love for them right now. About 90% of my maternity clothes are from there: jeans, work pants, leggings, shirts, one sweater, you name it. As I've hinted previously, I really like trying on clothes before I buy them. And The Gap fits me right.
I'd probably be fine with ordering from The G-A-P online, but this new world that includes an ever-expanding belly makes shopping particularly interesting. I did take a risk and ordered a maternity dress from an online retailer (who shall not be named). The dress showed up after the wedding I was attending and fit horribly. Not a good combination for a pregnant lady.
Any mommas or mommas-to-be want to share where they found stylish and affordable maternity clothes?
For everyone else, have a fantastic weekend!
