While I debated purchasing this top at the time, it quickly became a go-to throughout my entire pregnancy (last seen here). The flowing structure expanded right along with my belly. To get through the heat of an Arizona summer, I knew I needed to invest in a pair of maternity shorts. I tried on a ton and settled on these joes jeans maternity shorts. I patiently waited for them to go on sale so they weren’t too expensive. I can’t count how many times I wore this outfit, especially switching out the wedges for my trusty birkenstocks.
As soon as my swelling goes down and I can fit into my maternity shorts, I’ll be wearing this exact outfit again. I am so excited to forever ditch my maternity clothes. I also know from experience that it takes time. We were looking at photos from Lawson’s first few months earlier this week. I wore maternity jeans post-birth at least 5 weeks. I’m giving myself the same length of time to recover again.
Happy one week birthday to our little Sybil! Hope you all have a wonderful first day of September!!
