Tulip Dress

SEE LARK! | Tulip Dress

I have discovered the perfect dress and it comes in the form of Hatch’s tulip dress.  It tapers out and then back in at the hem, creating a draped/blousey effect that would look great on any figure.  I used to have this mental block about wearing anything “maternity”, I mean why would I *seek* out maternity wear if I wasn’t expecting?  I think it was even a commandment on What Not To Wear, “Thou shalt not wear pregnancy clothing when not pregnant”.   Continue reading “Tulip Dress”

Laser Cut Leather

I have a new found appreciation for a-line cuts and faux leather fabric.  It is amazing how this Forever 21 dress I bought last year on a whim has the stretch and give to fit a 6-month pregnant woman!  It did look a little too “baby-doll” for my liking, so I added a blazer which helped give it more sophistication.  It felt like the perfect combination for a (rare) night out on the town.

Oh La La

Wearing stripes always makes me feel like a Parisienne. You’d think that horizontal stripes would not be a friend to a growing figure but it can actually be quite flattering if you choose the right shape.  Go for a more form-fitting design and wear it with something that has a defined shape and angles like a blazer or a long sleeve collared shirt. Throw on a red lip and voilà!   Continue reading “Oh La La”

Warrior

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. Continue reading “Warrior”

What’s The Hurry?

The typical beach uniform calls for a maxi dress. To keep it from looking dull, turn to interesting cuts like this beauty I found on Etsy.  With a plunging back and deep v-neck front, it feels less muu muu and more sexy. Okay, it was a little too sexy for me so I doubled up coverage with a soft cotton bralette in a matching color. I would normally advocate against letting your underthings show but when you are on an island, anything goes… and it goes slowly. Continue reading “What’s The Hurry?”

Pintucked

The baby bump is in full force now so getting dressed is becoming more strategy than effortless ease.  Fortunately, dress silhouettes these days (and the hot summers) are helping me out. Most summer dresses are flowy and in forgiving shapes. I really liked this cotton dress from Madewell (this is an extra small if you can believe it).

Stars, Stripes and Surprise

SEE LARK! | Stars, Stripes and Surprise

July 4th festivities were last week but I can’t help but carry forward the stars and stripes theme just a wee bit longer. I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but my recent outfit posts have been more on the “blousy” side. That’s because I have an ever-growing mid section.  I am excited to share that hubby and I are expecting our first child in early December! Continue reading “Stars, Stripes and Surprise”
