I can’t believe I only have one more week of bedrest (assuming we make it to the big 34)! Staying “busy” these past few months has been quite a challenge. One of my go-to pastimes has been browsing eBay. Like I’ve mentioned previously, a significant amount of my baby purchases were pre-owned. Of course, I’ve done some shopping for me as well! One of the (admittedly trivial) things I was looking forward to this pregnancy was “dressing the bump” and taking bump pictures. I accepted that it just isn’t going to happen, and I gave up buying maternity clothes months ago. Instead, when I’ve been browsing eBay, I’ve been looking for things I can wear or use postpartum. I’m mostly buying clothes in my pre-pregnancy size, perhaps a size up, depending on the item (like shirts that would be tight in the chest). Over the past few months I’ve found some fun items, some of my recent favorites are below! I also found my long-time wish-listed (over-priced) handbag for a steal. Its huge, and will make the perfect diaper bag!
As always, thank you for reading and thank you for your support, especially during these past few months!
I’ve been waiting for a site-wide sale at J. Crew for a while… basically since the Sloan flats came out (love shoes!!)! It finally came, and at 30% off, which is about as good as it gets for sale on full price stuff. I had to grab the Suede Sloan flats to try. I got them in the neutral color and the burgundy. I was going to grab the raspberry glitter ones, which Ben was actually a fan of, but I decided to hold off because I was planning on trying the Gemma glitter flat instead. Since I was placing an order anyway, I decided to add on a few work shirts. Previous years flannel dot shirts were kind of crappy quality. I don’t know why I’m trying again, but I am. Such hope! I also grabbed a summer weight plaid shirt because the reviews were excellent (and promise its not shear!), long cotton-linen shirt in navy because I love that fabric combo, and a light blue short sleeve popover (even though its back-ordered). Super excited about them all!! Maybe something will actually work out!
Their current sale goes through August 16. If I’m lucky enough to get my items before then I’ll post some reviews! If you do buy, Shopathome.com has the best cashback at 3%. Not great, but better than nothing!
