Hey guys! Happy Friday! This week has been such an exciting and fun week for me that I don’t want it to end! Although I’m sure most of you are super psyched it’s Friday. Ha! It’s actually a really busy day for me because I’m filling in as co-host at Home & Family since the regular co-host, Mark, is taking a well-deserved day off. So the shows other co-host Debbie and I will be holding down the fort! Girl power!
Anyway I wanted to share this look with you guys today because I just think it’s so cute, super fun and perfect for a big belly even though it’s non-maternity! I fell in love with the dress when I saw it online because I love the 70’s feel of it. It also comes in other colors/prints that aren’t quite as retro, but I love how retro this one feels. I just think this dress is so great, not only because it looks super cute, but also because I feel like it’s great for anyone that might want to hide a little extra love around the midsection. Or in their booty! And I thought this dress would be so cute as an Easter outfit! I actually think I might wear this on Easter because I love it so much.
I went ahead and sized up to a large just because I wasn’t sure if my normal size of a medium would have fit over my huge bump. But if I wasn’t pregnant, I would’ve gone with my normal size medium. Speaking of my huge bump, Kevin and I went to the doctor yesterday to have a more extensive ultrasound where they measure the baby’s brain, heart and limbs. Every woman has this ultrasound around 20 weeks but we had to get another one around 28 weeks because at our 20 week appointment, the baby was showing a small cyst on his brain. I’m super happy to report that the cyst is no longer there! Thank goodness! However, we did learn that he’s measuring 3 weeks big! So basically, my doctor is reevaluating my due date at this point. My doctor told me they’re going to re-review my 8 week ultrasound images to see if they should adjust the due date (that age of gestation gives the most accurate results). Oh and on top of that, it looks like I have some excess amniotic fluid like I did with Molly. So since I not only have a very big boy growing inside me, there’s also excess fluid which is resulting in my belly being larger than it normally would be at 27.5 weeks pregnant. So needless to say, I have to make sure I have as much room as possible in my clothes. So this dress was the perfect option for me when I wore it the other day! Just had to size up one size. Get your normal size if you aren’t pregnant!
To play off the 70’s vibe of the dress I got these fun white round sunglasses. I can’t help but smile when I wear them. And finally, I finished off the look with this bamboo purse! I’ve seen so many other fashion bloggers and stylish women in general carrying this bag and I had to jump on the bamboo bag train! I feel like it instantly makes you look more fashionable when you’re carrying it. You just can’t put anything in it that you don’t want anybody else to see because it is see-through. But honestly, when I use it, I just take the basics. In these photos I only have my phone and credit card (in phone case) in it. But when I want to put things in it that are smaller, I just use little bags and I kind of like it because it stays more organized.
Oh and everything I’m wearing is from Modcloth! Have you guys checked out their website before? I’ve written about them a few times because I just think everything on their website is so unique and fun! And they tend to carry a bunch of different sizes for women of all different shapes and sizes! For instance, this floral dress comes in sizes XXS up to 4XL. How great is that?!?!
Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you guys today because I think it’s super fun and the perfect look to share on a Friday! Hope you all have the best weekend! Love you guys!
Ok.. I may have written more below 😉
You know what, I was gonna end this blog post by just sharing the one dress but I want to share another one with you guys too! It’s this chiffon A-line dress in pretty pastel colors! The reason I want to share it is because one, it’s on sale so it’s the time to get it! And two, I feel like because we announced the gender of our baby this week, the pink and blue dress just seems appropriate to share right now! Oh and three, it would be so cute for Easter because of the pastel colors! It also comes in sizes from XXS to 4XL. I will say though, the color of the dress is a little bit darker than the photos on the website. So just keep that in mind if you decide to order this one. It’s super cute and girly and would even be cute to wear when you do your own gender reveal! Gender reveals are on my mind this week since we just did ours. Anyway, I wanted to share one more look with you guys today! It’s also from Modcloth! Hope you love it!
