Believe it or not, this entire outfit is composed of non-maternity pieces… even the jeans! I’m lucky enough to still fit in a few pairs of my regular jeans even at 25 weeks pregnant. With my first, I spent quite a bit of money on maternity clothing which I later gave to a friend because I didn’t think I’d ever need it again (or at least not so soon, haha)! I was a lot bigger than I am now, so I wouldn’t say purchasing the clothes was a waste. Now when I’m shopping for items to add to my fall/winter wardrobe, I try to buy pieces that are in regular women’s sizes so I can wear them longer after baby girl arrives. This means most pieces aren’t “fitted”.
Onto the beloved Hunter boots… I wanted a pair for so long and never really owned a true pair of rain boots before these. They’re a life saver. Even though they’re on the expensive side, I’ve worn these through the rain, snow, and mud and they’re still in great shape! I do wish that I had waited for a sale before spending the full amount because over the years I’ve learned you can score them for as much as 40%!
Nordstrom Rack is the first place I check to see if they have any – both online and in stores. Unfortunately I’m 45+ minutes away from the closest one, but I have even started seeing them in stores like Ross & Marshall’s! If you’re okay with buying pre-loved boots, I always check eBay, Poshmark, & ShopGoodwill. I’m so surprised that not many people have heard of Goodwill online… it’s not my go-to place to just search and see what’s new, but I’ll hop on and search for designer names to see if anything good is up and make a bid for it. I scored my Tory Burch flats BRAND NEW last year from there for less than $75!
