Oh I know how it is. You’ve got a May due date (or so), and while you swore you wouldn’t buy one more maternity piece, you hit January and your current wardrobe is causing actual mental anguish, you’re sick of the cold, you’re sick of feeling enormous, and ooh, lookie here..sales! (Or maybe that was just me a couple years ago?)
Fortunately this is a great time to get one or two more special pieces to power you through winter and early spring, ego intact. One of our favorite maternity designers, Isabella Oliver, is now doing up to 50% off the kinds of cozy knit maternity clothes you’d have paid full price for.
If you’ve got the butt for it–which I most definitely did not but evidently Alyson Hannigan did–the cozy hoodie sweater maternity dress in heather grey will take those leggings to new places. I might go for the wrap cardigan (shown here) instead, which looks like it will work on all body types, and you’ll definitely get to use on the way back down too. In fact, it’s featured in Isabella Oliver’s Fourth Trimester clothing collection which is just brilliant. Because you know you’re not going to walk out of the hospital in those first trimester jeans, right? –Liz
