august closet additions


H&M Maternity Tanks: $13 each = $26
I didn't want to buy any summer maternity clothes, but I bought these tanks for my Disney trip next month! I think they'll be perfect and airy enough to keep me cool in the Orlando heat.

H&M White Shorts: $18
I only own one pair of maternity shorts, and I can't wear them the whole time in Disney. So I ordered these for my trip, and while I do plan to wear them, I'm not happy with them. I'm normally a 4, but something told me to order a 6. Good thing I did because I probably couldn't even get all the way into the 4. The 6 is pretty tight, but I really don't want to have to pay another $6 shipping to send them back and then another $6 shipping for another pair. So I will just be squeezing my preggo booty in these for 1 day in Disney.

Maternity Leggings: $25 each (BOGO 1/2 off) = $37.50
I don't love how much these cost, but I really need them and I know that I will get a ton of use out of them in the fall.. maybe even too much use!

Motherhood Maternity Shirt (black): (clearance) $8

PinkBlush Maternity Blouse: ($15 flash sale) $15
PinkBlush had a $15 flash sale and I just couldn't resist! Their clothes are just too soft and comfy!

PinkBlush Maternity Tee: ($15 flash sale) $15

PinkBlush Maternity Dress: ($15 flash sale) $15
The good thing about this dress is that it doesn't look maternity at all, so I will be able to wear it post-pregnancy too!

Old Navy Striped Sweater: Garage Sale $0.50

Mossimo Tank: Garage Sale $0.30

Gap Cardigan: Garage Sale $2
I LOVE this waterfall style cardigan. I see myself wearing it a lot this fall/winter.

Banana Republic Cardigan: Garage Sale $3

{not pictured}Black Gap Shirt: Garage Sale $2

{not pictured} Gray Slip On Shoes: JC Penney Org. $40, on sale for $30, 15% off coupon = $25
Similar to these Sketchers. Not something I would normally buy, but last year I thought I could handle Disney in sandals like when I worked there, and that was a mistake. Hopefully these will keep my feet comfy this year!

Total spent: $167.30 - clothes sold on Poshmark $12 = $155.30

Total Spent this year: $464.80

I spent much more than I normally would in a month, but I suppose that's what happens when your hips keep widening and your belly is growing. And not to mention a Disney trip planned for next month! Considering how expensive maternity clothes are, I think I'm doing pretty good at this point. I definitely see myself buying a few more maternity items, but once fall is here I know I will be able to get away with tunics and leggings!


  1. So fun to see this post change with all the preggo clothes. :) That's pretty good money-wise even still! :) XO -Alexandra

  2. Great purchases! I guess I need to check out Pink Blush for some maternity items...
    I'm looking forward to being able to switch to leggings and tunics in the fall too!

  3. You are doing so great with building a maternity wardrobe! Maternity clothes are expensive! I know you spent a bit on them but you'll be wearing those leggings SO much! That is something I'm excited about with cooler temps. Those grey ones are the perfect shade!

  4. Oh my gosh, that Gap waterfall cardigan is so great, Danielle! You've done a great job of purchasing maternity clothes that you are going to be able to get tons of wear out of! I can't wait to see how you dress your growing bump this fall/winter :)
