Where are the colored tights?

I feel like I am starting to "pop" out there in this dress. My coworker offered to bring me in some of her maternity cothes and this is one of the items that I snagged from the bag (still had tags).  She is a little smaller than I am, so I had to wear this one before it was to small.  Plus, I didnt want the temps to get warmer and I never get a chance to wear this little cute number.  I really wanted to wear colored tights with this dress, but all I have is royal blue, hot pink and cranberry .. so I just went with black.

I feel like my smile is a little strange in this pic, but you get the idea.

I have found that plus-size maternity clothes are definitely not as cute as straight-size maternity. I have only bought a few pieces so far (a pair of jeans, a pair of khakis, maybe a dress and a few tshirts and tanks) but the selection is "interesting." I guess I shouldnt be surprised. So far, I have shopped at OldNavy and Motherhood but if you have other ideas, feel free to leave me a few comments.

I dont want to break the bank on buying maternity clothes, but I would like to have a few pieces here and there. Im just glad that I will be pregnant during the summer (not happy about the potential sweltering weather) which means I can wear plenty of dresses.

You look amazing... can't wait to see you truly preggers... I have to be careful because if I tell hubby I want another baby... he may try and kill me :)

ebay! find out what sizes fit you best and then shop for them on ebay.

also, thrift stores, goodwill, salvation army, etc. are full of maternity stuff. that's where I've gotten a bunch of items. :)

also, someone told me that Ross has maternity clothes and I stopped by there today and found a pair of shorts! but call your different ross's first because some don't have maternity.
