I have already bought 2 swim suits... the first one we bought for our vacation in April... which in the south it was hot but here in MI it was far from summer weather... well, I already grew out of it(its too short and shows my lower belly) and needed a new one for our summer here. So that makes 2. I've bought a few tanks and a few capris but I feel like I just keep getting bigger and growing out of them so quickly... I don't know what I'm going to do for the next 3 months when it's super hot here.... maybe I'll live in my swim suit!
I'm actually getting really frustrated about this! I've been searching non-stop for days trying to find clothes that are affordable to get me through this season. Right now I'm stuck in jeans and it's killing me. I bought some second hand t-shirts in a larger size so that will help a bit, but I really need some shorts.
If it's this warm already this summer is going to be scorching. I really don't want to have to spend $50+ on one pair of shorts!! I just don't have the money, and I think it's a ridiculous amount to spend on shorts anyhow!!
I almost exclusively bought spring/summery maternity clothes, so I shouldn't need to buy anything more for the summer. I'm having way too much fun spending $ on Jackson to want to spend a single cent more on myself.
I might buy a new bathing suit, as we have a pool in our neighborhood, and I'll have every Friday off work from mid-June until the baby is born. So three days to be able to swim in the pool for exercise sounds awesome. I have a couple of older swimsuits (two-pieces) that used to be too big for me, but I imagine they fit me now. I have to check it out because I want to hit that pool the first Friday I have off!
I have a pair of maternity shorts. I am really trying to not buy much and don't plan on buying anything else unless I have to. I will totally rock a bikini before I spend money on a bathing suit I will only be able to wear for a few weeks!
I got a bathing suit and another skirt (not as much a fan of shorts), as well as buying a pair of capris a while ago. The rest of the tops I got will last me in the summer, I can still wear dress pants to work since its air conditioned, and then the remainder of the time I'll wear clothes that are too big for me from my friend that are all summery, but too big for me.....which is MUCH better than being too tight!
I hear you girls about the price of maternity stuff, it's ridiculous. There are certain things, like my nightie and PJs, where I've just bought cheap ones from Asda (like Walmart) in the next size up from my normal size and they are really comfortable. IF I was buying a swimsuit I would do the same, but I'm not. We may go to the seaside if it's nice next week but I'll just roll up my pants and paddle. I'm no swimmer anyway.
I also hear those of you who've been growing out of stuff. Some of my maternity tops are riding up now I'm getting bigger - presumably because I'm carrying right out front - and it's like, heck do I need to buy some stuff in the next size up in MATERNITY stuff? But I'm hoping not to have to. If I do, it will be from Ebay.
I will probably buy a pair of shorts and maybe another tank top or two, but I have a fair bit of clothes (not maternity, but loose or empire waist) that still fit me right now. I have a few old pairs of shorts that I plan to convert into maternity clothes too.
I'm not going to spend a whole lot of money on anything but maybe pick something up here and there if I run across some good deals. Unless I out grow everything I have left, then maybe I just shouldn't leave the house!
im in Ireland - its sunny now but god only knows how long it will last. so no i wont be buying any more maternity clothes for the summer other than sweatpants and shorts because my leggings and jeans are just too uncomfortable.
