Mine is that I haven't lost any baby weight, it been almost 2 years and I seem to be gaining, I can't afford new clothes so I usually wear my husbands.

Chequita, change the capris for long pants or jeans in cotton with a tshirt. Dress it up with a pretty long chain necklace or long earrings. A tank with a very lite scarf. Don't be discouraged, give it a try and you'll be a polished looking mom.

Joy, there is nothing wrong with wearing the pre-owned maternity clothes. Since you are pregnant your best bet at the moment is to accessorize with items that stand out like a statement necklace, a colorful handbag, a very lite printed scarf. Keep in mind, Bright colors go great with neutral tones. Wish you well!

Mine is that I'm pregnant with #2. My regular work clothes don't fit me so I've gone to the bin of maternity clothes that my sister & some other friends have passed around when we're pregnant. There's limited options in there and I don't have a lot of extra $ with the cost of daycare for the 1st one.

Rachel, I just wrote a style guide for summer and this is what I would advise. Some great summer skirts are midi the length which falls right at your calf or just above your ankles. A universal style that works for most is a soft A line. You can find them at various stores including TJMaxx. A solid color would be best so that you can wear with a fitted tee and printed blouses, mix it up.

Gale, there's nothing better than finding pretty styles in the body you're in right now. Once you do it will change everything. I understand the financial point you mentioned and I've been in your situation. I still shop at Salvation Army and any other local thrift store, you would be surprised at what you can find. Knowing how to spot the shapes and cut that flatter you is the key, when you take your body type into consideration. I recently wrote a style guide book that can help.

YES! I think if I worked in an office, I could just see what other ladies were wearing and copy that, but I work in a work shirt and jeans with kids all day, I wish I knew how to dress outside of work. But my hubby likes me to dress girly and I would rather someone just tell me what to wear and it be comfortable and not ugly and not make me look fat! ha! I like skirts but have to have the "perfect" skirt that is a summer skirt, not fancy. I have a hard time finding shirts that don't make my big boobs look bigger :(
