The thing about being pregnant is that, for most people, the more pregnant you are, the less clothing options you have (except last time when I borrowed three complete pregnancy wardrobes from a couple of friends and had twice the amount of clothing that I normally did. That is, sadly, not happening this time).
Which means everything you can still fit into has to pull its weight in a big way (oh the jokes I could make with that last sentence. I will refrain).
Since Merrick, Preethi, and I are all pregnant at the moment, we thought it’d be fun to do a little “One Piece Many Ways” deal-y. And hey, if you aren’t pregnant, well, does that mean that YOU can’t wear a t-shirt? No, it does not.
I really like this t-shirt because the stripes are subtle and, more importantly, it cost $4. You know how I like a bargain. (Full disclosure? I had a 10% off coupon, too, so it didn’t cost the FULL $4).
Also, a long stretchy t-shirt goes for many many months when you’re pregnant. And should it refuse to snap back after you’re no longer pregnant, well, goodbye four whole dollars.
Here’s five ways I’ve worn this t-shirt (all with my exactly identical hair):
One Step Above Casual/My Daily Life:
I love the combination of gold and gray. And I’m determined to wear these gold sandals until the day they fall off my feet. Also, I know some people passionately hate the hi-lo hemline look. I am not one of them. I’m sorry if this puts our friendship in jeopardy.

Going to the Movies (at the dollar theater, if you’re me, which you probably are not):
You most definitely do not need the sweater when you’re outside, but movie theaters, restaurants, and pretty much any indoor space is about 50 degrees during the summer here. I do not leave home without a second layer.

Church/Working as a
Secretary Administrative Assistant:
This is the world’s most stretchy pencil skirt, I think. It fits me when I’m not pregnant, but I wore it as late as five or six months during my last pregnancy.

Sitting Around the House in Sweats. Er, not sweats:
You know what I love about belts? It instantly looks like you did more than throw two items of clothing on. Also, I love belts right now because I know the moment this baby is born, there will be no more belts, what with the nursing scenario.

Out to Dinner:
Neutral, neutral, neutral, red shoes. Pretty much my favorite thing ever. Also, I did not appreciate how stretchy these pants were until I was pregnant. So stretchy.
