I have teamed up with my friend Anna of In Honor of Design to do a fun series of bump styles over the next few months & let me tell you, this is a huge step out of my comfort zone! 😉 I am most comfortable in a pair of sweats, but I am going to do my best at getting creative with my wardrobe. I hope you enjoy!!
First up, the relaxed t-shirt shift dress. Seriously, these dresses are a pregnant gal’s best friend.
Yes, they’re also known for being a bit frumpy, but dressing frumpy is a right of passage during pregnancy, right? 😉 I think the key is making sure that the arms are fitted & the dress isn’t too long, or it really would feel a bit garbage-bag like. This style of dress is perfect for earlier stages of pregnancy when your bump maybe isn’t very pronounced yet, but the love handles are! I genuinely feel great wearing this dress, and while fitted dresses & tops are really fun to wear to show off the belly, it’s also worth something to just feel totally comfortable in your outfit. I am also obsessed with the grey version, no surprise! I feel like it is even more casual than the black, which is perfect for hot summer days ahead.
I also love how versatile this dress is. It can be dressed down with flat sandals, or dressed up with heels or wedges and a long necklace.
An extra large tote is my very favorite accessory. With the girls ages we tend to go a lot of places without strollers, so it’s sometimes easier to grab something a little less all-inclusive than my regular diaper bag. This is a reversible tote which I love because I can switch it out on the go, but I also have a major crush on this hot pink one, the tassels are so fun for Spring & Summer!
And probably my most favorite part of this style?! My extensions!! I have mentioned multiple times about all of my post-partum hair loss, my hair got crazy thin & I ended up cutting off quite a bit. While I love a shorter hair style, I have always had long hair & have been missing it like crazy for the last few months. Along came Top Knot Extensions, who contacted me about trying out their halo extensions, and I quickly fell in love!!! I will share more in a separate post later this week, but for now, those long thick curls are something my hair could never have achieved on my own. They are so easy & quick to put in & take out, I could not be happier with them!
