As I'm gearing up to go back to work as a teacher in a couple weeks, I've been on a desperate search for stylish maternity work clothes. I do have a few go-to's that I saved from my first pregnancy; however, that was from four years ago. Since then my style has changed along with fashion trends and I feel like I'm starting from scratch. And since there is a wider variety of maternity work attire available online than in stores, I've been scouring the internet to find key pieces to add to my closet of mostly maternity t-shirts. Check out some maternity workwear essentials I've come across. I ended up purchasing quite a few of these looks as the new school year begins, and bonus is that they aren't that expensive as this is my last pregnancy and I had a budget I wanted to stick to. -By Tracy Brennan
