If you didn’t already know, SURPRISE! There is a baby on the way.
Now that the secret is out, I can finally talk about my biggest issue these days… what should I wear!?! It might seem trivial considering. But listen, when your body is expanding at this rate , you suddenly find yourself running out of things to wear.
Around the time I was facing this new dilemma, Tobi reached out me and asked if I would like to collaborate. “Ummm, Yeah! Of course!” I generally like loose fitting clothing but my pants have generally been high-waisted skinny jeans-huge no no at this point. Turns out, you don’t necessarily have to buy maternity clothes while you are pregnant. If you find loose fitting items, stretchy skirts and pants , you are good to go. I got to test out this theory with the incredibly large selection of clothing on Tobi.com. I went with three stretchy dresses that I could wear again after the baby arrives. One dress never made it to this post because, let’s just say , it was a little tricky to button up. For reference, I am 5 10 and typically wear a size 8 but I had to buy size large because medium just wont fit currently. The nice thing about Tobi is they have quick delivery and free returns and a huge selection of clothing to choose from. I’m definitely revisiting their site after the little one has arrived. Definitely have my eye on a few rompers.

The good news is, I haven’t had to spend a fortune on maternity clothes but I have had to get creative.So if I had to settle the debate, I will say that there is room for maternity clothes–DEFINITELY. Because no way I’m fitting this growing belly into my existing jeans, not even if i leave the zip open. However, I will say, be smart and only buy what you absolutely need. Try everything in your closet before you buy anything new.
Have a lovely week!
