Maggie Maternity

When it comes to maternity fashion - I'm all about doing it comfortably and subtly. You will not, I say WILL NOT find me in wild patterned outfits, outrageously bright colors or complicated pieces with lots of snaps, buttons or ties.

I have found that the pieces I wear the most often are simple, comfortable and solid in color. If I had to guess, I would say that I wear about 10 complimenting pieces - over and over and over again.

Maggie Maternity is a company that had ladies like me in mind. Made out of the most beautiful jersey knit, you will look as beautiful as these clothes feel!

Right now, I am loving the Grecian Maxi Dress ($100). Stunningly chic enough to be worn to a wedding (I'm totally wearing this to my sister's in September) yet comfortable enough for a casual day out with the kids. Going to BlogHER in a few weeks? Yes you will see me in this dress - just warning you.

I had a friend ask me if it's as cute in person as it is online. The answer is YES. Jersey knit is a pregnant mama's best friend! These clothes make me feel pregnant (in a good way), opposed to what I typically feel - which is just plain fat.

If you're a working mom and need a place to start with the "corporate look", the Classic Summer Maggie Box ($195) is a must have for you. Consisting of 4 basic everyday pieces - a tank, tee, skirt and trouser; this box will have you well on your way to looking good and feeling good in the office.

Typically I'm pretty frugal when it comes to maternity fashion, realizing that this fashion season of my life only really last for a short period of time. Maggie Maternity is so worth your hard earned dollar. Even if you can only afford a piece or two (like me), you will find yourself wearing it over and over again.

I have a sneaky suspicion that my Maggie Maternity pieces will be hanging in my closet long after I give birth - I love them this much.

Win Your Own! We have a $50 gift certificate to Maggie Maternity for one lucky Simple Reader. To be entered, visit their site, shop around, let us know what piece you would love to own and why.

Winner will be randomly chosen and announced July 18, 2009.
