The closer you get toward your due date the harder it seems to justify buying more maternity clothes. At the same time, your belly is at it’s biggest state and so you have this definite need for clothing that will fit you correctly.
The easiest ways I’ve found to justify purchasing more maternity clothing are 1) finding items on sale like this LOFT maxi dress, and 2) trying to think about different ways I can wear each piece before I make an investment. If you weren’t able to catch yesterday’s post, I encourage you to as I styled one flare dress three different ways. Today’s post has a similar tone – multiple ways to style one piece of clothing.
If you’re pregnant in the summer, maxi dresses are always a good investment as they leave plenty of room to grow with your growing bump. I had been eyeing this one from LOFT for quite some time, and when I saw it go on sale, I thought it would be worth it. My first thought was: this dress will be perfect for date night or dinner out with friends. But then I got to thinking, well, what if I wanted to wear this while running errands with Emma Grace. At 38 weeks pregnant, I can guarantee you that I will not be wearing wedges all day. So, I simply made a knot on the side of the dress, slipped on some sandals, and was ready to go!
funny story: I actually only got to wear this dress one time…I wore it out on a date night with my husband to eat ramen and if you know me, then you know I can rarely get through a meal without spilling. Welp, this dinner was no different from the rest. I spilled droplets of sauce all over the front with each bite and it won’t come out because of the oil in the sauce. Tear. If you have any tips on getting out oil stains, I would LOVE to hear it!
