Poochy Pleasures

Today marked my first official maternity outfit. 

Yesterday Art and I (he never comes shopping with me (by my and his choice, so I thought it was cute he wanted to tag along for this) hauled it out to Seiersberg mall (which takes us about an hour to get to by public transport), so I could go to the only source of maternity clothes that I know of in this city...H&M.  None of the other 32 H&M locations in this town has the maternity line.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure I'd look pregnant in this even if I wasn't, but now I don't care. I'm wanting to look pregnant instead of like I have a beer belly.

 H&M pulled through as usual.  Got 2 pair of pants, 3 tops and two belly bands for 100 Euros.
The H&M Mama brand jeans are stretch and come cropped and rolled...which I like because it means no hemming and more comfy.

You know I be lovin' this:
(it's gonna be hard to switch back to regular jeans)
That's my Hauptplatz Hamburger Storage Unit.  Hey, I need my iron, k?

And, I promise I won't be posting growing belly pics up here...just this once cause it's new and novel for me.  I'll probably want to torch empire-waisted tops and banded bottoms in a mere 2 months.  My winter puffer jacket's in the cellar oven now.  Our forsythia started blooming this weekend and that makes mama happy.

You look darling! Glad you were able to find stylish, comfy, CHEAP maternity clothes. You will be ready to torch it all when you are done with it. Miss you!

Lisa said...

H&M at Herrengasse (next to Zara) should have Maternity clothes too....

Juliette said...

At the sight of the first picture I went, is that an H&M top? (guess who was just there, lol) Cute!

Carolyn said...

Lisa, thank you. You're right...it might be upstairs...agh...we went all the way out to Seiersberg and there might be the same stuff in town!

Lisa said...

Yes, it is upstairs! so for the next time you know it ;)

Hi Carolyn,

First of all congratulations for your pregnancy.:-) I know you don't know me, but I met a lot of bloggers through our blogs.
I ran into your blog while exploring Graz. Love seeing things from another perspective. Also like your culture shock section a lot. I used to live in Vienna over a decade but now I have come back for research in Graz. If you'd like to meet some time for a coffee, get in touch. My email is gvisda at gmail dot com.
