Just Say No To Drapes

Loft maternity skinny jeans

Today is just not working for me. Or should I say this outfit. This top here is a non-maternity that I’ve had for ions, which given the flowy drapy thing happening, I figured would work out well as a maternity top.

And maybe it just doesn’t photograph well, but man it really doesn’t photograph well.  Especially on an almost 5 month pregnant lady, whose sharing her belly not only with a baby in this current moment, but also with a regrettable taco-truck lunch.

Side note… maybe I’m just a bitter sober pregnant lady but I am starting to think that taco trucks – no matter how many stars they have on Yelp – should not be visited sober. This is the 2nd time I’ve had a taco-truck lunch (in other words, not after a night of drinking) and just like this top, it’s not working for me. And that is really sad, because I really like tacos, and feel like I should really like taco-trucks in all stages of life. Sober or not.

But back to the top, I am pretty sure it looked good back in the day, when the drapes could fall free as intended and not be stuffed with my baby-carrying-body. But tomorrow, this top is going directly into my “not-right-now” space-bag and in the garage.

On the up-side, I do really like my pants! They’re a touch long and need to visit the tailor… but that hasn’t happened yet because I’ve been very busy not getting shit done lately. I am not totally sure how long these will last me because the denim has pretty much no-stretch… and the belly panel is a little snug… but I actually prefer when the belly panel fits secure. But not sure if what feels secure now, will feel like suffocation at month 8.

I also like my shoes, which you may remember from Monday. So maybe when I said this outfit wasn’t working for me I should have said, the top. Because that’s really the only rain on my parade today.
