    I think wrap dresses are the perfect maternity look.

    Target has a fabulous line of clothing from designer Liz Lange with a plethora of options. In fact, I’m jealous – I wish they made some of her designs for us non-pregnant women!

    Depending on the weather in your area during September (I’m in California), I would go for a pretty empire-waisted voile stripe sundress if it’s warm or a sleek sheath dress with a cardigan. This tank dress is a favorite of mine as well.

    Liz also has her own line of Belly Panel jeans and work pants that look like they have great lines. But her tunics are my favorite – like this Cap-sleeve Woven Tunic in Yankee.

    Of course you could always go to a higher end boutique and end up spending more for less – but a designer clothing shopping spree at Target would appeal to me!

    This one size fits all versatile wrap dress.’Butter’ by Nadia will be something you’ll use during maternity as well as after! With a dozen different ways to wear it, it’ll make this the perfect wedding outfit as well as a ladies lunch dress. Available in Satin and jersey, i think its beautiful and extremely economical considering its many uses!Enjoy your pregnancy!….oh, and heres the link!!
