- Red-orange cardi, blue pleated top, bangle, and gray suede wedges: all remixed.
- Gray skirt: Mimi Maternity via eBay
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!
