February 2015 Clothing Budget- Maternity Edition:
Colorblock baseball tee via J. Crew Factory: $9 (exact); worn here
Maternity vintage-style v-neck tee via Old Navy (exact), paid $13 for all 3 Old Navy items after credit
Active compression leggings via Old Navy (exact)
Maternity active side-smocked top via Old Navy (exact)
Sorel Tofino Cate boots via eBay: $130 (exact, but only one size left, option in another color, option); worn here
Quilted black flats via Payless: $20 (exact)
=$172 for February (although I sold a ton of stuff via eBay and consignment which ended up covering all of this.)
I’m super pleased with these purchases this month. The baseball tee was such a steal, and I am in need of more casual clothing for when I’m at mat leave with Baby P. The activewear from Old Navy was a nice addition, since I’ve been working out at least 5 days a week. Normally, I’d wear one of my old t-shirts, but when I go to yoga class in public, I don’t think people would want to see my belly poking out! The boots were an upgrade from my old ones, which I sold on eBay. These go up much higher than my old ones and give me more mobility too, and I plan to keep these around for many winters to come. Lastly, I replaced my old beat up black flats. This pair from Payless is comfy, supportive and only 20 bucks—I’ll definitely wear these a ton.
And in terms of sponsored or c/o items, I got this cardigan from Shopbop. And last month, I asked for your opinion on a dress for my baby shower and shortly thereafter, Seraphine offered to let me pick a dress out, and this one was is definitely a winner! Full post coming soon!

I just ordered two pairs of the Old Navy compression leggings to round out my fitness wardrobe. I can’t wait to get them! They’ll be on my budget rollup next month if they work out. (No pun intended.)
LOVE Old Navy’s workout gear– the best and at the right price point! (And I LOVE a good pun, always.) :-)
I love those sorrel boots! I have been eying them for a long time, but we just don’t get enough snow in Oklahoma for me to justify them :( And can’t wait to see the maternity dress on!
They are keepers, for sure! Yeah us Chicago folk definitely have to invest in cold weather gear wa waaa. Excited to show you the dress too! :-)
Love the colour of that long sleeved top :) I went a little scarf crazy this month, but it works for me.
Thanks Cassie! And scarves are so fun and can be worn so many ways- you’ll get your use out of them, I’m sure!
Those boots are going to get so much wear! I love the JCrew top you got, too. I’ve been wanting one like that with navy sleeves!
Absolutely, yes! And I’m sure JCF will be making a navy version– that just seems obvious in the near future right?!
