What to Wear When Nothing Fits

At 17 weeks pregnant, every morning I'm doing a little closet gambling. Will these pants that fit last week still fit today? Will this shirt resemble a crop top? I'm outgrowing my regular wardrobe a lot more quickly this time around it seems, but there have been a few "morning saver" pieces that never let me down.

I'm putting together a couple of looks that consist of these go-to pieces that help me stretch (literally) my non-maternity wardrobe. Even if you don't have a growing belly, I think we all have days that our skinny jeans feel a little too tight, so these types of pieces are great for those blah-feeling days too.

What are your go-to pieces when you feel like nothing fits?

Ahh, I love dresses. I don't think you can beat them for comfort this time of year, and I love this loose-fitting knit version from Old Navy. I love how it skims over my midsection without feeling tight and uncomfortable.

The elastic waist has also been my friend lately. I love this striped skirt because I feel like there are so many ways to wear it. I thought it would be fun to pair it with this stretchy turquoise top and these new slide sandals.

  1. We're still a little too cold for bare legs in these parts so I've been loving tights and loose tunics. Unfortunately, I've now hit the stage where regular tights are too tight by the end of the day, and maternity tights aren't tight enough in the morning. My skinny jeans still somehow fit (I'm not questioning how, but so breathe a sigh of relief every morning when I can still button them), so I've been wearing those with a long top and a blazer, hoping my boss doesn't notice my casual Friday's start on Tuesday.
