I’ve had enough. Last pregnancy I got around in the hubby’s t-shirts and hoodies and spent the whole time looking and feeling frumpy. I hate spending a lot of money on maternity clothes that have such a limited shelf life. It annoys me that as soon as you say ‘wedding’, ‘baby’ or ‘pregnancy’ suddenly the price doubles. While you can get away with a lot of your pre-pregnancy wardrobe for the majority of the pregnancy there does come a time for new clothes. Yesterday I went to an outlet maternity store expecting to find some bargains and was irritated that everything was still over $100. So I decided to take myself (with Finn in tow) to Cotton On in search of some strechy numbers. Happily I found 6 tops, 2 skirts, a belt and 2 scarves all for $109!
This pregnancy I have decided that I will only wear clothes that make me feel good (and hopefully look good too) so that I can enjoy my gorgeous bump. And I have decided to share my fashion bargains and outfits with you. So here is the first installment. Comfy daytime wear to get me through this cold day! Enjoy!

Belt: Cotton On $10
Magenta T-shirt: Cotton On, 3 for $30
