I am almost 16 weeks pregnant and its starting to get harder to fit into my clothes. I am learning to find what flatters my ever changing figure and enlarging belly. At this stage I don’t have an obvious baby bump but my body is developing and growing. This dress is one of the items I have recently picked up from Banana Republic. As I had mentioned in my previous blog post…I am loving the new BR and am so excited they have updated their style. (You can read more about it here, and see some of my favorite items).
Every girl has a little black dress in her wardrobe as a staple and it goes with everything. If you are going out and don’t know what to wear you can always fall back on that LBD (little black dress). On the hunt for a cute maternity friendly dress, I opted for the gray option. With fall in the air I felt like the gray was a perfect fit. The ruching on the dress is strategically placed to flatter every figure (even my growing bump.) The dress is very simple and can be dressed up or down depending when you want to wear it. During the day, just add a scarf, booties and simple accessories and you are ready to go. For an evening out I paired it with statement earrings and these laser cut booties for an edgier look.
As soon as I laid eyes on these heeled open toed booties I knew I had to have them. I am such a fan of burgundy this season. I think the color is so rich and beautiful. I think a bold shoe can add to a simple outfit just as much as a statement piece of jewelry. I am more of a minimalist when it comes to jewelry so I try to find other accessories to add something special to my outfits. When I feel like I need to enhance my look, I add a scarf, jacket or use my shoes to do the trick.
