Mom Street Style: Nicole’s Thrifted Maternity Finds (and Tips For Bump-Styling at Goodwill)


NickyMaternity Hip Mama-to-be Nicole sent in this cool shot of herself sportin’ a totally on-trend maxi skirt she scored at Goodwill.  Nicole says:

When we became pregnant, I had just a few goals:  the first to stay healthy, to prepare a lovely home for my new bundle, try not to let my hormones take me too far off the deep end & lastly – never to lose my sense of style.  It was a challenge I was up for and luckily my body worked with me.  I love fashion and my passion for thrift shopping can be seen in a number of my maternity ensembles like the one I have attached. I was in Savannah this past weekend visiting a girlfriend who just had a baby and had to show off my new skirt.

Nice job, Nicole!!  Love the skirt, love the belt, love the sunnies.  Nicole’s top is from Motherhood, her belt and sunnies are from Marshalls, and the skirt, as mentioned, is from Goodwill.

It turns out that Nicole is an entertainment reporter for CBS…and recently did a piece about maternity styling on a budget.  It’s awesome!  In the video, Nicole gives tips on shopping your local Goodwill and solid bump-styling advice.  And when all of her fab finds cost less than $25….it’s definetely two minutes worth watching!  And my very favorite part?  The totally adorable striped outfit she wears to go shopping.  Check it out….

Nicole – thanks so much for writing in!!

  1. Love it! I shopped thrift stores and Goodwill when I became pregnant (with my son in 2008) because I couldn’t bare to pay astronomical prices for maternity clothes I would only wear for a few months. I got more compliments on my style than ever before, with many saying they didn’t think it was possible to remain stylish while pregnant. Nicole gave awesome tips and is a great reporter. Congrats to her becoming a soon-to-be new mama!
