For this month’s October 2014 clothing budget, I did quite a bit of spending. I feel all of the pieces I got were warranted, since much of it included maternity wear! I’ve been seeing a lot of capsule wardrobe recaps from bloggers, with one of my favorites being Kate from The Small Things Blog. So if I can get my act together, I’d love to do a maternity themed capsule wardrobe…it makes so much sense! Until then, here’s where my moolah went this month:
–Secret Fit Maternity Leggings (black and gray): $30
There was a buy one get one half off sale on all pants, and these are SO much more comfortable than regular leggings, believe it or not.
–Secret Fit Belly Bi-Stretch Suiting Baby Boot Maternity Pants (black and gray): $50
Again, on sale and a staple for work!
–Maternity Long Sleeve Tee Shirt Dress: $24.99
Classic dress than can be remixed in so many ways!
–Maternity Tank Top: $12.99
Picked this up as a recommendation from a friend…love the longer torso. Great for layering! Will likely get more of these in the future…
–Maternity Long Sleeve Essential Tee: $14.99
I feel like a lot of my maternity wardrobe is blacks and white, so this is a nice pop of color for more casual days!
–Nursing Cami: $18.19
Got as part of a sale…haven’t worn yet but will definitely come in handy!
-Charcoal (and camel) tie-waist sweater via Sears: $50
I saw the camel colored one on a coworker of mine and was surprised when she told me she got it in the maternity section at Sears! Super cute! (I looked everywhere and couldn’t find a link for them, but they are in stores!)
-Blue and black/white blouses via Loft Outlet: $15
These tops aren’t maternity but are super flowy and roomy and will be great for work! I went shopping with my Mom for my bday and she let me use her coupons and rewards to get these for super cheap! Problem is- I already have some sort of oil-based stain right on the front of the blue one and it won’t come out! Does anyone have tips/tricks that I can try?
–Long sleeve tunic sweater: $27.99
Nice long length, perfect with leggings for a casual day! Lots of colors, too- I’m digging the burnt orange color!
-Evie Drawstring Funnel Neck Sweatshirt: $44 after Stitch Fix credit
Super comfortable and not form fitting. Winner.
–The North Face K Jacket: $56
I’ve been oogling after this jacket for quite some time and saw a crazy sale at 6pm.com for over 70% off! (It’s last year’s design, but I like it better than this year’s design anyways!) Have been wearing it a lot and it defines my waist but it still roomy enough for the small bump I have going on at this point!
= $416.53 for October

Yeah…a lot of shopping this month. But to be fair, I needed this stuff so I would have something to wear without being uncomfortable…annnd it was my birthday this month, so I treated myself :-)
