Ahhhhhh I am so in love with today’s blog post! Not only because this tunic is just so gorgeous! But also because wearing it makes me think about how it would be the absolutely perfect maternity outfit! And the reason that makes me happy is because we really want to have another baby! No, I’m not pregnant. But I think we’re going to start trying for another one soon!
And while I certainly didn’t love being pregnant the first time around, the end result (a.k.a. Molly) is the best thing ever! And quite frankly, I loved dressing my baby bump when I was pregnant! Honestly, the fashion was my absolute favorite part of being pregnant! Ha! And if you guys followed me back then, you know that I was all about buying non-maternity pieces to wear when I was pregnant so I didn’t have to spend a ton of money on maternity clothes that I would never wear again or only wear one other time, which is when we end up getting pregnant with a second baby.
Today’s look is non-maternity. I mean, I’m obviously rocking it now and I am not pregnant. Although if I was pregnant, this would be the perfect outfit to wear to hide a baby bump until you’re ready to announce! If you’re on the shorter side, you don’t have to wear anything underneath it and it’s an adorable dress. If you’re on the taller side like me (I’m 5’7″), I just wore a black slip dress underneath to give it a little length. Just make sure the slip dress you wear has thin straps so it doesn’t take away from the beautiful top of the tunic. Because the very first layer of the tunic is sheer – which gives it a gorgeous neckline. And since this is a tunic, it can also be worn as a top with the black leggings and killer pumps! I love a good versatile piece of clothing. I’m wearing a medium And I usually wear a medium in Chicwish. However, always look at the sizing chart. Oh and btw, the heels I’m wearing with this look are SOOO comfortable. Even for a pregnant woman!
It’s from Chicwish which is a brand that I love not only for their gorgeous feminine clothing but also because their clothing is really affordable! This tunic is $50 and worth every penny because it’s really a dress and top all in one! You can wear it if you’re pregnant and you can wear it if you’re not pregnant. It’s just one of those extremely versatile pieces. And it’s a statement piece! I feel like when I wear this tunic it’s a conversation starter and people are just dying to know where I got it.

Anyway, this look just really got me thinking about pregnancy and having another baby. But, I have to say that I’m just so exhausted with Molly all the time that the idea of having another one also freaks me out! I don’t nearly feel ready to have another right now but after being pregnant for 9 months will I then feel ready? We also want Molly’s sibling to be close in age to her. Ideally 2 to 2.5 years apart. To all the mothers of two or more kids out there, when did you know you were ready? I mean, do you ever really feel completely ready for more? I’d love to hear stories from other parents out there!
