Technicolor Dream Bump: Maternity Maxi at 28 Weeks

Above: Anthropologie dress (similiar summery version), Zara sandals, Jerome Dreyfuss Carlos tote, GAP 1969 denim vest, Karen Walker Northen Lights sunglasses

 

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!
