Isabella Oliver Maternity

My bump style has evolved over the past nine months of pregnancy.  Starting out as a jeans and button down kinda girl, I’m moving towards favoring dresses especially now that I’m approaching the end of my third trimester.  There is nothing like a figure hugging dress while pregnant.  I must say that I feel my sexiest when I’m wearing one.

In the past, when I was having a “fat” day I would avoid horizontal stripes and tight clothing like the plague.  It almost seems like a contradiction…wearing a tight dress when you’re at your largest.  When you’re pregnant all those rules go out the window.  This is a time when a woman should embrace her curves because its such a beautiful time in her life.

This Isabella Oliver dress is perfect.  It fits in all the the right places and has the perfect length.  I find that when I am trying to squeeze into some of my non-maternity dresses they start to ride up and become a little too risqué.  What used to be an appropriate length is now a mini skirt that may not be suitable for a mama-to-be running errands.  The best part is that this dress can totally be worn postpartum as well.  How perfect is that.

I love the neutral colors and simple striped pattern of the dress.  I kept the look chic and casual by adding a hat and Converse and keeping my jewelry minimal.  Lately I have been living in my sneakers since my feet and ankles have decided to swell like crazy!!  One of those pregnancy side effects that has come to haunt me.

  1. bumps in clingy dresses are my fav! you look super cute. i am so jealous. i always thought of the best pregnancy being one where i could wear dresses all the time, especially in the 3rdT. alas, it’s been the complete opposite! haha i can tell you though, my bump looks pretty sexy in a XL SNOW PANTS LOL

    1. I keep hearing about salt intake!! It probably didn’t help that I was crazy about pickles my first 2 trimester. I try not to eat too much but I’m definitely not monitoring my intake closely!! Working out has been key for me as well!! It has made me feel so good!! Good luck with your pregnancy!! I’ll have to check out your blog! 😘
