Versatility



Necklace: eBay, Dress: Target, Sandals: Belk (old, love these), Bracelets: Forever 21 & Stella&Dot

I'm one of those people that has always picked up something off the rack and tried to envision 3-4 ways I could wear it with what I already have in my closet.  Now that I'm pregnant, I do that even more.  For me, it is just unthinkable to purchase items that I will only get to wear a few months of my life.  I mean, I love shopping and I love fashion, but spending money on something I won't be able to wear in 5 months is definitely not something I want to do a lot of.  

I've purchased most of my maternity clothes from consignment sales, online yard sales, and clearance racks.  In fact, I think it's safe to say that I, personally, haven't spend more than $60-$70 on maternity clothes because I was so blessed with friends lending me their things and giving me their things that it hasn't been necessary.

This black dress is something I bought when I was in that in-between stage where you just look frumpy, not pregnant.  It is actually from the juniors section in Target and I bought it in a size bigger than I normally would so that it would grow with my bump.  I only paid $10 for it and I'm so glad I got it because it has easily become the most versatile dress in my current rotation.  Here, I just paired it with a statement necklace and sandals for work, but I've worn this with a glittery belt to a baby shower, Jack Rogers and a sash to a wedding, and I fully intend to pair it with leggings and boots come cooler weather.

What is the most versatile piece in your wardrobe?

  6. I am the same way! Even if I LOVE something, I won't buy it if I can't wear it several different ways.
