a flowy dress for those hot summer days


Dress / Suede Mules / Earrings

I can’t decide when is the best time to be pregnant. since I’ve only been pregnant once, I only know what I’m experiencing right now. HOTNESS.

it’s hot in the summer here in the NYC area. it’s muggy, humid, and lots of hot Subway fumes. I’m sweating wherever I go, constantly.

HOWEVER, I do get to wear dresses all the time, so that means it’s easy to get dressed, I don’t need to sit down and pull on a million layers (like socks and boots) and I can wear light, breathable fabrics.

I have this go-to flowy dress that I’ve been wearing in this pregnancy that’s super flattering, comfortable, and is that perfect balance of feminine and ‘I want to stay in my PJs all day’ relaxed. I don’t love sheath dresses, because they tend to not flatter my shape properly, but the seams and floppiness of this dress make it shapely – especially when the wind blows and it clings to my bump!

I’ve been wearing it for lazy weeknight date nights and on the weekends running errands, with a pair of white sneakers – it can be dressed up or down!

    The dress is pretty Ali. One thing about being preggers in the summer, baby due in September, by the time summer 2018 rolls around Vola, body back. I can see baby in his seat, you on the treadmill and he (Insert name) saying, you go momma!

    I had my first in August and found the last four weeks really difficult because I was so hot and sweaty all the time. My second was born in March and it was much easier – no swollen feet. On the other hand having a newborn was so overwhelming that I am grateful I didn’t have to wrestle with snow suits or socks or hats at first.

      It’s tough either way, I guess! But such a blessing 🙂
