My goal this pregnancy with my wardrobe was to remain comfortable, but not to buy a ton of maternity clothes. Between my work wardrobe and my 'weekend wardrobe' I usually have a few pieces that crossover. For example I wear my work blazers and jean/olive jackets both to work and out so I figured throughout my pregnancy I would keep up that theme. In order to do that, I had to make sure I had a few pairs of maternity jeans and work pants that could fit as my belly grew. So plan has gotten me through, except for a few tank tops that grew too tight and too short around my belly, so I will be needing a few actual maternity plain cotton base shirts here before too long.
I ended up purchasing these H&M maternity suit pants and they are so amazing I wear them at least 3 days a week to work. I also was recommended old navy elastic waist jeans that are not maternity but work perfectly well with my large belly. Besides that I have a pair of skinny maternity jeans with the elastic that goes all the way up over my belly.

For this, I already had a great collection and I am just wearing what I already own. I like to stick with a plain base of a black top and dark jeans and then layer any jacket over time. This has pretty much been my pregnancy uniform.
I need to work on this but right now the below dresses are my base layer a lot of times if not I wear this set of H&M long tanks a ton.
Before getting pregnant, I NEVER wore dresses casually it was just not my thing. This summer especially you can find me living in dresses. Because I don't have any maternity shorts, dresses are the coolest option and it is so nice not to be feeling weighed down or pulled in by tons of elastic. I love these from Target and I have this button dress down (on sale for $3!) I have been wearing with various jackets.
I did just decide to do Rent the Runway Update, a $69 monthly subscription that allows you to pick 4 items a month. I'll do a full post on this but I got a maternity dress for an upcoming wedding, a structured cardigan for work, a blazer, and a pair of side elastic paneled maternity jeans.
