Frilling Maternity: Maxi + Crop Top


Yep, I said crop top.  It is.  But it isn’t.

See?  I told you it was a big belly, didn’t I?  I wouldn’t lie to you.  But enough about that.  Let’s talk about the outfit, which I LOVE.  And it is hard to love any outfit when you are this pregnant.  Half of my love for this outfit lies in the fact that only one piece of the whole ensemble is actually a maternity piece.  Plus I got tons of compliments when I was wearing it yesterday.  I might just wear it everyday for the next six weeks (Oh Jesus, please let it be 3!).

This top is my favorite.  It is the perfect lightweight “sweatshirt” and it has awesome drape and great layering potential.  It will also be the perfect top for nursing in – just sub out the tank with a nursing tank.  I’ll show you.  I’ll wear it later with leggings and killer boots and be a stylish lactation machine.  But for now, it’s a drapey maternity crop-top.  You didn’t know a pregnant girl could rock a  crop-top, didja?

Awesome drape, interesting snaps in the back, soft cotton fabric… Add that to my trusty maxi skirt (in this case, pulled up over the belly), and a supportive stretchy tank, and you have a favorite outfit.
