How did you enjoy this (finally) gorgeous weekend? We hosted some friends for a BBQ, went to another BBQ, and generally just BBQ'd all day and all night. Nothing wrong with a little, or a lot, of BBQ!
I wore this dress out and about Friday, then wore another with a similar cut, also from Anthropologie, for one of the BBQ's. I love the feathered, funky, print of this version from fall, though it will probably be my one and only time wearing it during the 'maternity-era'. It was a squeeze on top between all my bumps, and at the rate the belly is growing, I feel certain I wouldn't be able to zip it now- just a few days later. So sad bidding goodbye to all my favourite clothes!
The partner dress (worn to BBQ) has the same flattering top that darts in a bit on the sides/shoulders, but is a light white with more brights, by Maeve, pics coming soon!
Confessional: I purchased three dresses for the shower. It just seemed impossible to shop too far in advance- how big would I be? Would I want a print? What if the material isn't stretchy enough? I went with a basic black maxi, the Maeve printed maxi, and a crazy batik maxi made out of jersey. Either way they will all see a lot of wear. Am I crazy? My husband certainly thinks so. I like options for big events like this though, and size was definitely an issue for this one.
OK, back to my nesting. Nursery is almost done!
