Dressing fashionable while pregnant can be quite tricky. When I was pregnant with Bubba, I felt like nothing caught my eye and when it did, it wasn’t comfortable and I hated how I looked in it.
This week, I wanted to talk about stripes. I was reading the most recent InStyle magazine and they had a whole feature on how stripes aren’t as bad of a thing as most people make
them out to be. People assume stripes will make you look larger but in all reality, it just depends on the piece.
I received this dress from Shabby Apple; did you know they have a maternity line?! To be honest with you, I thought this dress would fit a lot differently than it did. I expected it to be a little tighter and it felt a little like wearing a bed sheet. I did order it a size bigger to accompany my growing belly but I still think it’s just the type of dress it is.
Because it made me feel bigger than I really am, I decided to pair it with a jean vest and belt to try different looks. This gave me a little more shape and broke the dress up rather than looking like one big piece.
