Frilling Maternity: A Flowy Dress


So, yeah, I’m working on a lil bit of a belly, even as early as 16 weeks.  It’s amazing how much faster the belly appears the second time around.   I snagged this (non-maternity) drapey dress at Zara a few weeks back, thinking it would accommodate all the changes that will be happening through the summer, and be cool and stylish as well.  It’s soft and comfortable, and I’m looking forward to wearing it all sorts of ways this summer, dressed up and down.  Today I paired it with bright accessories, but I’m thinking some neutrals would be nice too.

If I could just say a word about these Dansko’s:  the gals over at ANMJ convinced me to give them a try, so my mom gave me a pair for my birthday.  I couldn’t be happier with them.  The color goes with practically everything, they are amazingly comfortable, and I adore the vintage vibe of the styling.  I used to be a Dansko hater, but I’m sold now.

Add a bright cardi for chilly air-conditioned spaces, and you’re done.
