In the (Maternity) Navy

Ring, vintage; necklace, Lulu Frost (similar in green here and pink here); glittery nails, Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips in Lust-rous
Makeup c/o: Clinique Chubby Stick in Two Ton Tomato; Dolce & Gabbana The Foundation Luminous Liquid Foundation; Nars Blush in Gaiety. Sunnies, c/o Mezzner. Necklace, Lulu Frost (similar in green here and pink here)

On my list of things-I-thought-I'd-never-wear-that-I-actually-wore-when-pregnant? This body-conscious navy dress that ended up being one of my number one go-to pieces over the last several months. (The office, out to dinner--it seemed to work for everything!) Although I've definitely gone through tight-dress phases in my non-bump life (hello, early-'90s Contempo Casuals!), I've basically given them up in recent years in favor of anything with at least a microscopic flare. But, when you're pregnant, the rules fly out the window. Case in point: I have loved strutting around in this dress, big tummy totally on display. In fact, I loved the fitted look so much--and found the dress so unbelievably versatile--that I'm planning to buy a similar, non-maternity option now and then wear the hell out of it, too. (I've got my eye on this one or this one--which do you prefer?)

Just a few more weeks left to go--can you believe it? Ahhhhh!

LOVE this!!! Looks classy and shows the cute bump! As far as the after-the-baby dress, I like the first option! With the lower price and plain neckline, it's begging for amazing accessories!
