maxi dress time

DSC_2281Back when my sister Katie was pregnant (both times), she practically lived in maxi dresses. Now that I’m expecting myself, I totally get it now–these things are a pregnant lady’s best friend.

DSC_2277As you’re probably aware by now, maxi dresses achieve that perfect balance of comfort but somewhat put-together. Plus, I like that they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. The only drawback I’ve noticed is that empire waist maxi dresses (i.e., the kind that are very accommodating to a baby bump) are a little tough to find. As luck would have it, I already had this one in my closet from last summer.

DSC_2287I’m not sure how I feel about the color combination going on in this outfit…but it worked for a casual day on campus. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this dress quite often over the next couple months, so any suggestions on how to style it are welcome!
