Actually a Dress

blue dress 5 (1 of 1)

As this belly grows bigger and bigger, it’s getting hard to find shirts that are long enough.  This top is actually a dress technically, but I’m loving wearing it as a top with leggings. These leggings have been my best friend these last few months.  I dare you try and take them from me! It’s not happening 🙂 I am loving this blue floral dress, which I'm actually wearing as a top with leggings. Perfect maternity look especially with the weather beginning to warm up.

I have been so grateful that it has been warming up lately.  Considering it hailed most of the day today, though, I’d say the weather is still feeling a bit moody.  I try and keep a jacket with me for those swings that sneak up on you.  This jacket is fun and a little edgy!

Blue floral maternity dress with comfy black leggings and an edgy leather jacket. I paired this outfit with chunky black booties. Perfect for fall.

For my makeup I decided to keep everything pretty neutral except my lip color.  I like to add a little pop sometimes! I’m wearing Desert Sunset blush, IIID foundation, honey illuminator, eyeshadows sabrina, mama, oak, and trust all from HERE

Date Night Dress

It is hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! We have a lot of holidays in February so we actually moved our Valentine’s to August.  I still want to bring you a look perfect for the occasion, however! We will be celebrating our Anniversary that week, so whatever your occasion, I have the perfect date night dress for you. black-lace6-1-of-1

This dress is not maternity, but it does have some stretch to it.  The material is thick, so I feel like it’s easier to wear than some other form fitting dresses I have tried.  I just can’t get comfortable in those slinky ones knowing that all my lumps and bumps are on display haha!  I think the high neckline, knee length, and long sleeves in combo with the thicker fabric make this super comfortable!  The side panels are made of a stretchy sheer material, just FYI.  I didn’t realize that when I ordered the dress.  I just wore a black slip under it, though, and it filled in well.  Now I think the sheer panels give it a little more stretching power for my steadily growing belly haha 🙂 black-lace3-1-of-1black-lace1-1-of-1

My favorite part, of course, is the lace on the bottom.  It adds such a feminine touch.  I paired it with these red bow heels that are definitely making a statement!  They are still in stock in smaller sizes.  If they don’t have your size, check out these.  I’m crushing hard on them and I think they would look amazing with this dress! black-lace4-1-of-1Wearing this black lace dress with red heels for date night! This dress ins't a maternity dress but it does have enough stretch in it to work with the bump!

Have you started making plans?  I’d love to hear any fun date ideas you have! XO

First Trimester Recap

Hi! I just realized I haven’t posted to my site yet that I’m expecting. So, if you don’t follow along on Instagram or Facebook, surprise! I’m due in April, and couldn’t be more excited 🙂

I thought I would just fill you in on how the first trimester went, since I kept the pregnancy a secret through it.  I know everyone has unique experiences, and I always love hearing about them!  For me personally, the first trimester is always a bit rough.  This time was not as bad as my first, but tougher than my second.  I had a hard time keeping food down, and it was almost impossible to find foods that sounded appealing.  I was super tired, and very emotional haha.  Basically, a dream to be around! My poor family 🙂 I couldn’t make it through the day without at least a little nap.  That part hasn’t gone away, but I’m feeling much better now!  My favorite part of the first trimester is the excitement of finding out, and having your first ultrasound.  It’s such a miracle!  I am now feeling the babe kick, definitely showing, and I can finally eat again.  We will find out the gender in a few weeks.  I can’t wait! Fall style black and white outfit with thigh high black boots! Maternity friendly fashion. Dressing the bump. 1st trimester clothes!

For the next few months I will be sharing some maternity friendly looks, including this one from PinkBlush.  This top can be worn without a bump too!  It is the perfect length to pair with comfy leggings and boots this winter.

This is my first time being pregnant during winter, so I have been on the hunt for cute maternity clothes.  There are SO many on PinkBlush, I have been shopping them a lot!

I’d love to hear your pregnancy experiences, and any recommendations you might have for maternity clothes! Thanks for all your love and support so far XO
