A Pea in the XL Pod/ Maternity Chic for the plus size #3

Maternity Hack for Plus Size #3


Gabby wrote about this line that is from (GASP) Walmart the other day here.
I can count on my hand the times I have shopped at Walmart but the price and the the shape got me lusting after this shirt.
Norma Kamali - Maternity Jersey Kimono Top seriously fits like a dream on me.
The above photos are not so great- I used a timer setting and am NO photog- but look at the shape! The shape is key.

Shape is very important to dressing your body.
Use beautiful shapes to show off your curves.
Balance out form fitting tops with looser skirts this hot summer season.
Don't try and take the focus off the big belly- FOCUS on it!
Form fitted is not scary! (Repeat several times)

COME ON! 14.00 dollars for this shirt!
It feels great and I cannot believe it is from the big W.
I know I am against buying much this time around (because it is the LAST)
BUT> I think I can wear this after the baby FOR REAL.
I spend 14.00 on useless crap every time I walk into Target. YO!

I am pairing it with a 2003 Target Liz Lange skirt and fun shoes for a day look and thinking about how I could make this look really chic for a evening wedding I have this month with a black skirt and heels. Versatile. Truly.

Really. There's such a gap in the market for plus size maternity, it's a little shocking.
