Shift in attitude

I’ve been asked a lot about my maternity style and I have honestly been surprised at how many non-maternity pieces I am able to wear. The most important rule in maternity wear is to stay true to your style and never be afraid to try it on. I bought this dress at Banana Republic after having fallen in love with the material and the color. I bought it a size bigger than I normally wear and voila! it zipped! A shift dress is always in style and in my opinion, it’s the perfect silhouette for a preggo…so go ahead, hot Mommas to be…step into that dress in the window. You may be surprised at how it fits!


Banana Republic ponte shift dress– This dress is not maternity, but it’s stretchy fabric definitely allowed me and my belly look fashionable.
Trina Turk for Banana Republic clutch: This limited edition clutch is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. The shape of the closure and the colors…perfection!

      It was gift about 8 years ago from my hubby. I seldom wear it but I loved it with the red.
