January 2015 Clothing Budget- Maternity Edition:
Colibri Plaid Printed Tab-Sleeve Shirt via Stitch Fix: $3 after credit (see my review here)
Short sleeve fitted crew neck tees in black, white via Lands’ End: $18 (exact)
Lily Aldridge for Velvet Olive Jacket via Shopbop: $10.40 after credit (exact)
=$31.40 for January
I’m pleased that I kept my spending down this month! The plaid shirt was too cheap not to keep after my credits, and the Lands’ End tees were part of my order with a dress (below) to get free shipping, and I needed these basic replacements anyways. The olive jacket is an upgrade to my old one, since the fit on it was always so-so. I actually got the navy version of the jacket c/o Shopbop with credits this month and liked it so much that it prompted me to get it in olive (see on Instagram here).
Last month, I resolved for the new year to keep spending down quite a bit, and the only item I really had on my wish list was a dress for the baby shower. I ended up ordering a few options and plan to return what doesn’t work. Here’s what I’m working with so far…HELP!
From left to right:
-3/4 Sleeve Knit Dress (Target, on clearance)- love the 3/4 sleeves and ordered it in this teal, navy and pink color. Just hope it’s not too short…that’s the last thing I want to worry about!
-Short Sleeve Lacy Overlay Dress (Target)- I adore lace dresses, but think I’ll get cold and may want a bit more coverage…plus not sure it will look flattering on me- I prefer tie waists/belts.
-Chester Place Dress (Deloom.com)- This is non-maternity, but I love the color, sleeve length and bow tie belt. Thinking I’d wear it with leggings since it will still be chilly out at time of shower.
-Pattern matte Jersey Surplice Dress (Lands’ End, on clearance)- Also non-maternity, but saw it on MK at 39 weeks pregnant, and thought it’d be versatile post-baby. But again, it’s sleeveless so would have to wear a cardi or blazer over it…
-Long Sleeve Striped Maternity Dress (Motherhood Maternity, on sale)- Great price point, love the long sleeves and form fitting cut, but wondering if the angled stripes would make me look even more…round?
So…help me decide! Which do you like best?
