Shopping s*cks, feet too big, body too blah, please help
oh ladies, ladies. I desperately need some closed-in shoes. Pump type things I guess - to wear with jeans on days when flip-flops just won't cut it. DH can't see why I won't just wear trainers but they just don't work with my current smocky-style maternity tops over jeans.
Also - since summer is a bit hit and miss I realy need a sweater. Prefer chunky knit, cuddly style - colours other than black etc would be good.
Currently 5 months pregnant, so will be big during the really nippy months - so sweater must be roomy enough to allow for this.
Please help, I had such a depressing shopping expedition today -boought nothing but a new sippy cup for 1yo dd - I am awkward to shop for at the best of times because of being tall but not willowy, plus having size 8-9 feet, so when pregnant it is just a nightmare.
Aaah, I was intimidated by 100x and decided against (also, they didn't have one in my local store and wasn't organised enough to ring around and locate one). Might have a snoop now to see whether it's in the sale, though.
thanks mumsnetters, crisis over. I bought these in red and these in white and then went to Red Herring at Debenhams and bought loads, including this in purple and this and then some maternity stuff that was marked down to virtually nothing. Last stop, Topshop for a pair of jeans that actually make my legs look fairly slim. Result!
