Hi all, I was hoping for some shopping tips here. I am supposed to be doing student teaching in the fall if the department chair lets me. She has yet to find out I’m pregnant so that might influence her decision of whether or not to let me if she finds that out… Without going into all the annoying details, assuming I am able to student teach, her rules are women have to wear skirts or dresses, panty hose, high heals, and nice shirts all the time. I’m not sure about make-up, but I refuse to wear it anyway so that doesn’t matter. The school’s rules are different. They require nice, business casual type clothes – pants are fine as are flats and sandles, and Friday is casual so jeans and tennis shoes are ok then. I plan on going with the school’s policy and taking the loss of points for not wearing hose and high heals. I’d pee myself trying to get the hose off in the tiny bathroom stalls assuming I didn’t kill myself attempting to run there with heels on in the first place.
This is my first pregnancy and I’m only three months now, so I don’t have many maternity clothes yet, let alone a dressy maternity wardrobe. I was wondering if people could point me in the direction of cheap yet nice clothes. I’ve got a couple maternity shirts from goodwill (they barely have one rack of maternity stuff and it’s mostly tank tops) and a couple maternity capri pants from walmart, but the walmart stuff is **** and it probably won’t last this pregnancy so I definately don’t want to buy anything else from them. We’re working with a very limited budget and the only stores in town are walmart, biglots, jcpenney, and kmart so mt options are online shopping, traveling an hour to visit a target, or two hours to go to St. Louis. I’ve heard good things about target so I’m leaning towards that and online shopping. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
