Can you guys believe it…this is my last pregnancy post. I’ve made it to the other side although elastic waistbands are still my best friends…at least for the next couple weeks. I had a tough ordeal with this birth (thankfully the baby is okay) and I’ll share that story in a later post but for now, I’m just grateful and happy to be home with my family. Truth is, love and happiness have healing powers and there’s nowhere else I can get this kind of “fix” than right here in my own home. As for this look, these non maternity jogger pants were a Godsend the last couple weeks. Not only did they fit my “waist” but they were super comfortable and even a bit chic. Gotta love those jogger pants…perfect for heels, flats and everything in between.
Winter in Miami is 100% about layers because the weather here has a slight bi-polar personality. It can be breezy and chill and then hour later, sunny and humid. You’ve got to be able to adjust or else you’ll be looking like a fool sweating profusely and cursing “Damn, when will the weather cool down?!” to anyone that will make eye contact with you. True story. This is another dress that I received from the Pietro Brunelli team. It’s sleeveless which is obviously a win in my book. The color is perfect for year round wear depending on your accessories. After the baby is born (yep, he’s STILL not here…seriously), I may have the dress altered on the sides to make it more fitted but for now I love the simplicity and versatility of its cut. Dressing for a tropical winter in Miami can be a little challenging but just… View Post
I’m trying to make the most of my wardrobe as these last couple days of maternity pass me by…and this Vince dress, which is NOT maternity, has been in pretty heavy rotation. I’ve said it before, a shift dress will do wonders for a preggo body. They’re snug in the right places but still give you the appearance of some sort of shape…and trust me, towards the end, it’s nice to have something that hugs your body and reminds you that you’ve got a waist still…sort of ;) The dress is a size Medium but it’s got some stretch and has been able to accommodate my belly…even now at my “any day” phase.
Made in Italy…this is something that I always love to see on labels. There’s something about Italian’s and fashion. They get it. They use quality fabrics, make effortless cuts and provide styles that will last the test of time. Naturally when Pietro Brunelli offered to send me a couple of their Spring/Summer collection dresses, I said yes. This dress is glamorous and the color is so beautiful (you’ll see below). I felt like a pregnant goddess in it and that’s a good thing. Wish I could capture that feeling always…cause I got to be honest, somedays I am feeling anything but goddess like ;) Thus the woes of being 9 months pregnant (tick, tock, baby Alexander, we are waiting).
I’m obsessing about navy blue lately…it’s my new black. I feel like it’s a little easier to wear during the day and the the ability to keep the accessories day time friendly are easier (in my opinion). I have worn this dress to the thread, I swear. It’s a non-maternity dress but the shift dress allows me to wear it over my belly bump and still keep its style. I have done this a lot with my previous pregnancy and with this one as well…buying shift dresses in a size or two bigger than my normal size. This dress has worked for me for the last three months and I know it will work for me post-pregnancy too so it’s a big win for me.
