First, I visited the Ann Taylor Factory store to take advantage of the 40% off entire purchase and found some gorgeous shirts that are already floating around the community.
Ann Taylor Factory Petal Shell, Lavender, XS, $27
This top is a tummy hider! The flouncy petals minimize bulges and even though this is size XS, the material under the petals is pretty stretchy.
Ann Taylor Factory Petal Front Shell, S, $24
By contrast, this is a belly flaunter. The stretchy jersey material will show off anything from a large lunch to a baby bump but isn't the petal detail soooo pretty? I added a belt here because the wide expanse of grayish cream looked a little strange without being broken up. Post pregnancy this will be tucked into skirts / pants.
Old Navy was also having a 40% off purchase so I went to check out their maxi dresses and wound up getting a pair of shorts too.
Old Navy White / Metallic Maxi Dress, XS (no longer available online), $24
The dress isn't very flattering at the waist since it has a straight up and down shape but this can be fixed with a belt. It's a nice, soft material and is a great maternity dress.
Old Navy Cuffed Linen-Blend Shorts, Banana Crepe, Sz 4 (buy here), $14
How could I resist yellow shorts?!? I briefly hesitated since these are regular and not maternity shorts but the I remembered the magic of the Bella Band. And ta da - instantly maternity friendly! If you're not familiar with the Bella Band, you can wear it with any bottom and just leave it unbuttoned/unzipped. The band will keep it in place for you!
I forgot to take a picture with Charlotte :( Next time!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter weekend! If anyone else has reviewed the above items, just let me know and I'll add your link :)
