I love Meijer! I actually worked there as a cashier when I was in college for a while (although that was longer ago than I want to admit).
I love that I can find whatever I need there, from clothes to groceries to household items (such as small appliances, bedding, kitchen fixtures etc...).
So when offered the chance to create a fall look I was up for it. I worried the challenge might be tougher due to the fact that I'm 9 months pregnant and Meijer doesn't carry a maternity line. I was still pretty sure that I could find something to make it work.
I browsed through the ad online before going to see what was on sale that week.
While searching around on the website I learned that that actually do sell maternity clothes online (only online though). I never knew that!
These tops were on sale for $14 (normally priced at $16) & the leggings for $8 (normally $10). Ths is the kind of outfit I would wear even when not pregnant, but I knew it would work being pregnant so this was my idea in my head when I went out to the store.
I had also wondered if I should get some sort of sports team football related gear since that's pretty big for fall, but decided against it.
I'm terrible at accessorizing so I wanted to find something that I could dress up with a necklace or fun purse.
Once I got there, I got the style of top I went in for, a few other loose flowy and tunic style tops, a tank top and a pair of leggings.
I tried on the style of top that I went in for, but it just didn't look right. I knew that a loose flowy style top would be the best, so I tried on the other tops that I brought, but none of them were working how I had hoped.
However, the leggings worked great & the tank top worked well (I just had a size to big). So I decided to work with that and find a cardigan or a sweater to pair with it.
I had black leggings and found a black sweater, but wanted to have some sort of color so I changed colors in tank tops and found a sparkly purple tank top.
So after getting my outfit, the next step was to accesorize. I have small wrists so bracelets don't work for me, and I don't normally wear earings so I was hoping to find a necklace.
After wandering back and forth I found a necklace and I was set to go.
Here is the outfit I came up with (the only thing I didn't get during this Meijer shopping trip was the boots). I'm loving it because it is comfortable, and it will work post baby as well. I actually went back and bought more of the tanks because they were that comfortable.
