End Notes:

Being pregnant has reinvigorated my belief in the necessity of having strong, classic pieces at the core of a wardrobe. While I love having special “statement” pieces, I simply can’t deny the ease, polish, and security that certain simple basics give me.

As I’ve tried to cobble together a small, efficient, and stylish wardrobe for this pregnancy, I knew that one thing that I needed to have was a slim gray skirt with a great fit. It sounds like that would be easy enough to find, but it took a good month and a half of scouring eBay every day until I found this wonderful charcoal skirt from Mimi Maternity and hustled it away for $15, including shipping.

And I love it.

It hugs my bump, it sits higher on my torso than most maternity skirts, mitigating the danger of stumpiness, it’s soft, and it has the perfect shape. So, interwebs, prepare yourselves. You will be seeing me a lot in this skirt. Let’s be honest, it will probably make an appearance again before the week is out!

  1. I love this outfit! I love how you always mix up colors in a less predictable way. And you are right, the fit of the skirt looks perfect. How do you not even look preggo from the front?

    It’s so cute how your baby bump isn’t even detectable in the front on shot. Great skirt, I’m not preggers, but would love a cute skirt like that.

    It looks so great. I was disheartened to hear that it was a maternity skirt because I wanted to get it for myself!

    You all are so kind, as always.

    @Kendra – It’s a tricky little skirt. I think it might have something to do with the seaming and how it sits higher up on my belly.

    @Alison and Kelly – Hate to disappoint, but I am selfishly SO GLAD that this is a maternity skirt! :) It was ridiculously difficult to locate! But I agree, I would love to have a skirt this shape for my post-preggers wardrobe, too.

    @Sal – I know, the cheapskate in me was delighted.
