My style has definitely changed during my pregnancy, primarily down to the fact that my options for flouncy, frivolous dresses are severely limited! When M&S got in touch to ask if I would like to style an outfit from their PLUS range fit for a summer occasion I was pleased to see a few pregnancy-friendly options. I was asked to pick an item from their dress collection and then choose a few other items to style it whilst keeping in mind a specific event which in my case was a baby shower! I wanted something that would be comfortable, brightly coloured, cool (heat-wise not Fonz-wise) that would show off my bump and this lime green vest dress ticked all of those boxes nicely.
In order to accommodate my frankly enormous bump I sized up from my usual 24 to a 28 which fits perfectly. It does gape a little around the arms but any extra breeziness is very welcome at the minute! The burn-out print does make the dress a little sheer but I rather like it, plus it means it’s incredibly light and soft. I also want to point out that I’ve washed this twice now and it’s still as bright as it was to begin with!
I’m wearing my trusty maternity leggings, a delightfully floppy hat and this pretty bead and stick long necklace. Accessorising has definitely taken a back seat lately so the necklace and hat may not be particularly outlandish but they certainly felt a bit fancy for me.
|Proof that my kitties just will not leave me alone lately!|
