a 37 week bump + ASOS maternity finds


Dress: C/O ASOS
Boots: Target
Striped Tank: J. Crew
Cardigan/Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Watch: C/O Wristology

I was instantly drawn to the floral print on this dress and considering the fact that it's a maternity dress, it's pretty darn cute! It's pretty darn cute, regardless, actually ;) The first time I wore this dress, I layered it with a black blazer and felt slim in it, despite the mega bump. I needed some color on this chilly and snowy day last week, though....and can we ignore the fact the camera insisted on focusing on my belly instead of my upper body/face in most of these photos? Cool, thanks. I really appreciate the teamwork, y'all.


In case y'all haven't checked out ASOS' maternity section, it's definitely worth the browse. Their items are well made and definitely on-trend. There are pieces to last you through pregnancy and some that might only work towards the end (( like this dress...it would have been way too long at the beginning, but is filled out nicely now. wink )), which is actually a relief because you get to a point where nothing really seems to fit well. Anywho, here are some of my favorites from the ASOS maternity section for Spring & Summer.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

1. This dress is the perfect staple for any time of year. It's styled casually and perfectly above for a trip to the farmer's market, but could be layered up with a cardigan and boots for cooler weather.
2. I envision this pencil skirt styled with yellow ballet flats and a chambray button down tied at the top of the waist. Again, a perfect year-round piece, so no matter what seasons you're pregnant, this will work!
3. Oh man, how I love a good raglan baseball tee. Pair this with some boyfriend jeans and your converse whether you're preggo or NOT. 
4. Oh, coral and flowy...my two favorite adjectives for shirts, tanks, and blouses. Style this tank with skinnies & wedges for date night or blouse it over the polka dot skirt above for the office. Win. 

love.

  1. Oh that polka dot pencil would look so dang adorable on a bump! Plus it looks like it'd be comfy even when your bump is coming down after the birth & you could throw a chambray or sweater over it. ;)

    with grace & gumption, Hilary

  6. That dress is definitely cute! I'm in my 30th week of pregnancy -- do you think that dress would still fit well post-baby bump or does it seem like it has a lot of side ruching? Thanks!
