Outfit: Utility Stripes

I am finally starting to enjoy dressing my bump more and more as the baby grows. I must admit, I found it quite challenging putting together outfits I felt good in during my first trimester. The first trimester was kind of like going through an “ugly duckling” phase for me…I didn’t quite look pregnant, just a little pudgy. I would say at about the 16/17 week mark is when I popped, and only a little. The only way you could tell I was pregnant and not just putting on weight from eating extra dessert, was when I wore clothes that were a little more form-fitting. IMG_1785


This is one of my favorite dresses to wear, so you will be seeing a lot of my Isabella Oliver t-shirt dress.
