Happy Sunday everyone! I love wearing dresses that show off my bump! As strange as it sounds, the tighter the dress, the better! When I wear pieces that have a loose fit they tend to just make me look like I ate a little too much :/. For all you non-prego ladies out there who like this Vince dress from Nordstrom, it’s not a maternity dress so don’t count yourself out on this little number (it’s a stretch fabric so I’m still able to squeeze myself into it ;)

  1. Rach! You look soooo beautiful! I’m your biggest fan! I follow your blog since the first post and I remember that I was thinking when I see u with a litlle belly (not so little already;))! remeber that you are the best inspiration 4 many women! lov ya! xoxo

  2. Hey, I love that dress. I know how you feel! Right now I just look like I ate too much for dinner, unless I’m wearing something tight. How many a big dinner .. Even when I wear tight clothes. I’m 14 weeks so my bump hasn’t quite started to look like a bump. I love your blog and can’t wait to watch your pregnancy style! I know it will be be so cute.

  3. I think it’s great when pregnant women wear fitted dresses. Back in the day, “maternity dresses” were basically tents. And you’re right, it does make it easier to tell the difference between pregnant and…you know…the other option.

  4. Love the look head to toe…perfection! The baby bump is just adorable.
    How are you able to layer the shirt underneath without it looking crumpled?

  5. I did the same thing, Rachel. I loved showing off my bump after about 4-5 months when I was out of the awkward phase of people wondering if I had just put on weight. lol. I found that most maternity clothing until about months 7-9 just looked big on me so I stuck with stretchy things I already owned which fit the best (especially dresses which were essential as my little one was due in late August in hot, sticky FL!). I also bought inexpensive dresses from places like TJMaxx one size up so I didn’t feel like I was investing a ton of money on maternity-specific clothing or on one-size larger pieces that I wouldn’t wear much afterwards. Thankfully, I was able to bounce back quickly thanks to breastfeeding my little one and gave all those larger clothes away and was able to resume wearing my regular wardrobe. It’s clear you are all-baby so I know you’ll have no trouble either! Around 6 months or maybe a little sooner you’ll find that pants like jeans are WAY more comfortable when maternity vs. using a belly band. Dresses were always way easier for me personally.

  6. Beautiful colors! I actually just posted a November favorites post on my blog where I said my favorite colors for this season were maroon and taupe.


  7. My goodness you look so stunning, Rach! I absolutely love this look on you. Can all your clothes just please go straight into my wardrobe?

  8. Such a beautiful and classic outfit! I love the color palette and those sunglasses! Also, wIshing health and happiness to you and your family. :)

  9. I love this outfit for so many reasons. Not just because the model looks great, the color scheme is elegant, but also because the pregnancy makes the outfit even more interesting. It’s hard to pull off a sleek look when pregnant. This outfit manages to rival the polish of a single girl outfit! xo
