Well, it’s that time. It’s time to leave the hottness behind and walk towards… maternity clothes. Shit.
I have officially hit the beginning of the end of my favorite:
Banana Republic t-shirts (that no longer cover my tummy)
High heeled strappy shoes (that are now making my back hurt)
Groovy, slim-fitting button-down shirts for work (as I am neither slim, nor fit right now)
Belts (I will miss you the most)
And so now I will dig back into a box of 5-year old maternity clothes to see what can be salvaged and then go out for a brief but depressing purchasing spree to fill in a few things.
Any guesses on whether I can find some tops that don’t have polka dots or bows on them? Or pants that don’t make me look like I’m waiting for a flood because, apparently, tall people don’t have babies? Or a pair of shoes that are cool, have a nice-looking heel, and don’t make my back hurt?
All I can say is G-d bless jewelry and purses! You don’t have to change your entire wardrobe of them just because your waistline has started to mimic the equator. (You just change what’s IN your purse!) They remain hip and stylish and sparkly and pretty. They are what’s going to keep me sane in the upcoming months. Because belly bands and “ties around the back” … might make my head explode.
How is it that science can figure out a way to keep a guy’s penis hard for 8 hours straight but we can’t design stylish maternity clothes that are (a) affordable and, (b) made of decent material and good construction?!
Anyone got any good websites or stores you can recommend to keep me from crying every time I step into my closet for awhile? Lob ‘em at me, people!
