In Which I (Actually!) Fulfill a New Year's Resolution

Yes, really! I bought a maternity skirt!

Thus, I have fulfilled one resolution - to shop for maternity clothes while not pregnant. I am extremely proud of myself!

Of course, the cold hard truth is that this skirt is a wee bit on the small side, meaning that (1) I have to lose baby weight before I can wear it, and (2) most likely it will end up as a non-maternity skirt anyhow.

But that's okay. I've made a start! (And it was just too cute to resist, even if it doesn't end up working for pregnancy.)

Of course, this could be a dangerous habit. But I'm willing to take that chance.

Local Business Shout-Out

I bought this skirt at Kid-to-Kid, a local chain of used children's and maternity items. Their merchandise is excellent quality, they have a lot of stock, and their employees are friendly and helpful. I have now both bought and sold with them, and my experience has been excellent across the board. Check them out! 


  1. Diana,
    You're not the only one who buys maternity skirts when not pregnant! It might comfort you to know that I too, am guilty of the same! ha ha! After my most recent baby, I ordered two beautiful skirts from They are still hanging in my closet, brand new. But, the next time I am expecting, they will be ready and waiting for me. Because it's true, that being pregnant and going shopping for new clothes often don't mix!

    On another subject, I am so happy to know another headcovering lady! You are an inspiration to me, Diana!

    Warmest regards,
    Jessica Roldan
