1 Dress, 2 Ways

I am in a couple of weddings this summer/fall so between bachelorette parties, bridal showers and rehearsal dinners I am going to need some maternity-friendly dresses.  Normally I would buy a different dress for each occasion but I’m trying to be really smart about my maternity purchases.   I don’t want to end up with a closet full of things that I will only wear once or that I can only wear for a few months.  I’ve been on the hunt for versatile dresses that can be styled lots of different ways and that I can continue to wear as my bump grows.  I found this cute pink number on Shopbop.  I am obsessed with the color and love the texture that is added by the accordion pleats.  Because it is flowy, there is plenty of room for my growing bump.  The only concern I have is that it looks pretty short, but since I am only 5’4 and would probably size up, I am thinking it would be fine.  With a fun pair of pumps and some great accessories this dress would be perfect for a summer bachelorette party.  Add a denim jacket and some pretty gold flats and it’s a great casual Bridal Shower ensemble.

  1. Shopping in advance is difficult because you never know what the bump size is going to be. Love this dress. The color is amazing and it's flows enough to work for a while.

  2. Oh I love that dress and it will look great on you!! I have the hardest time picking dresses for weddings - so many of the pretty ones are blush and light colored and that's just too close to bridal lol!! That bright pink one is gorgeous! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

    Happy Friday :)
    Great style post! The combination of a denim button down, white tee, black jeans, and Chucks is so classic.

    Happy Friday :)
