Maternity style tends to lean toward the sweet-side of things. Since I like my outfits with a little more edge, I have found that the best way dilute the sugar is through accessories. I love a good gladiator sandal and ones that go up to the knee offer a great contrast to a white shift dress.
Speaking of the shift dress, this one is made by Hatch Collection whose maternity line is great for during and post-pregnancy. I am obsessed with their line!
