Wardrobe Updates for Spring

I’m about halfway through this pregnancy now. As I grow, I’ve been sticking mostly to the maternity clothes I have from when I was pregnant the first time around with Eleanor, five years ago. Let’s just say… I’m not as excited about my wardrobe as one could be. Nordstrom Rack is now shoppable online, so I had some fun checking out the new site and putting together my favorite finds. I spotted a cute pair of straight leg maternity jeans, and below I concentrated on shoes, accessories, and jewelry. You know, the stuff that always fits.

Nordstrom Rack

  1. Sugarlips Long Sleeve Blouse
    Ever so slightly sheer, and with a mandarin collar.

  2. Eye Candy Los Angeles Green Rock Pendant
    I like the simplicity of jewelry that’s essentially a rock on a chain, with a little gold to hold it in place.

  3. Michael Vincent Michaud Round Stud Earrings
    The imperfect gold setting makes these interesting.

  4. Cole Haan Bellport Carryall Tote
    That punch pink is just so delicious, and perfect with a bit of leather trim.

  5. Bucco Valentony Gladiator Sandal
    They go with black and brown, the straps are great, and hello, stripes! For $27. So awesome.

  6. V Optique Pier Readers
    For those of you that only need readers (rather than glasses with a full prescription), these are a lovely shape.

  7. Harlyn Silk Colorblock Pocket Shift Dress
    The easy shape of this is so perfect, especially from the back. And how cute are those pockets?

  8. Dogeared Initial Ring
    I’d wear a stack with my kids’ initials, but I was chuckling thinking of what four letter words I might spell out, knuckle tattoo style.

  9. Vince Camuto Diamond Pattern Ring
    A big ring with big impact.

  10. Lucky Embroidered Square Scarf
    I am in favor of quirky details like the tassels, and the fabric is a gorgeous shade of pinkish red with embroidery.

  11. Hobo Lorna Crossbody
    Big enough to carry everything without being bulky, and the green is a fun color.

  12. Mixx Shuz Jane Ankle Strap Flat
    Yes to a bit of unexpected pattern at the heel.

Things sell out quickly, but new Nordstrom Rack goods for women, men, and kids are added to the site weekly, all at up to 70% off and with free shipping over $100. (Plus you have the option of taking things back to the store or sending them back by mail within 90 days, so returns are easy.) The sale events are powered by HauteLook and if you have an account there, you can use it for NordstromRack.com too. The shopping cart lets you add items from both sites, and they ship to the US, Canada, and Australia. And now that they’re online, it’s so much easier to keep an eye out for what’s new. I’d add that dress to my cart, but I think I’m already too big for it and it won’t be practical for nursing. I’m going to go for the scarf and sandals though! They should go a long way toward making my current maternity options a bit more fun.

    Hobo Intl offers the best bags in the prettiest colors. I love that green! Unfortunately, my feet DO grow during pregnancy. I also get Plantar Facitis during each pregnancy. Thank goodness for Orthaheel, and this time around I get to wear prettier versions now that Dillards carries Vionics with Orthaheel technology. It’s already 100 degrees where I live, so they are perfect.

      Mine grew with the first pregnancy, a little, and I don’t typically have too much of an issue with swelling. Here’s hoping that holds true…

    Beautiful stuff Nicole. Love the bags, shoes. Just about everything. Ha! Not buying though. I have enough. Always shopped NR when I vacationed in San Diego w/my pals. Such bargins! I would bring tons of things home for gifts. Especially the kiddos.

    I went to buy that necklace and it’s already sold out. So bummed!

      Oh! I checked back and I was able to nab the last one!
