This month was about picking up some more maternity pieces for my growing belly (currently 30 weeks along), and specifically those that I knew I would want to wear over and over again. So far, so good. 

I got the grey leggings because I already had a pair of black maternity leggings and needed/ wanted to wear something other than the same pair of leggings every night. The white tee is long enough to wear with leggings alone, or paired with jeans and my coatigan. The robe is a nice piece to have when it's not cold enough for a sweater, but when I just want to be comfy at night. The floral top is basically my favorite top to wear when I don't feel like wearing a t-shirt.

The best of all? The purple wrap top. I just got it and love it (and it didn't hurt that it only cost me $1 out of pocket). My cousin brought it to my attention that after the baby comes, I'll likely only want to wear nursing-friendly clothes. So now I'm trying to be mindful of that with my purchases. For those of you who have little ones, did you only wear nursing-friendly tops, or did you wear whatever you wanted to, even if it was inconvenient for nursing?

on repeat: cozy coatigan

Recently I was out of state accompanying my husband on an extended business trip (few days for work, few days for play). I'm not sure if it was the trip or the combination of the trip and pregnancy, but it wiped me out completely. As a result, I have fallen behind with grading, dissertating, and - as I'm sure you have noticed - blogging.

But lo and behold, I'm back to share with you one of my favorite pieces this fall - this cozy coatigan. I have been wearing it on repeat since I bought it last month, and it's easy to see why. It's far warmer than I anticipated, which means it's great for days when it's not cold enough for a coat, but still cool enough to need an extra layer. The length makes it perfect for leggings, too. It really can't get much better than that, but it did, when I was able to snag mine for about 80% off the original price (promotion + coupon). Do you have a coatigan? Do you love it as much as I love mine?
