Hi there, gal pal!
Happy Monday to you. 🙂
The rewardStyle Conference was a few weeks back so this outfit post is WAY overdue!
What makes me super excited about this post?
The fact that I’ve found a brand that works SO WELL during pregnancy, but the dresses aren’t maternity! So if you’re swooning over the fun flippy pleats on the dress below, you can wear ’em whether or not you’re sporting a bump!
Shop The Look:
Black Blazer (I love the puff sleeves! It’s 40% off!)
Alice & Olivia Pumps (omg, they’re SO FUN!)
Botkier Bag (5+ color options. IN LOVE with this bag.)
Celine Sunnies (30% off!!!)
A little over a month ago, I was invited to a lovely blogger lunch hosted by one of my all time favorite brands- Milly! It was an absolute delight to meet the designer herself! I’ve been wearing Milly designs for years so you can imagine my excitement! I was totally #fangirling.
In preparation for the event, Milly sent along this darling polka dot dress to me so that I could wear it to the lunch. I asked that they send a size large because baby was already getting big! I was a bit nervous about whether or not the dress would work with my bump, and I was so happy that it fit like a glove!
I’ve continued to wear it as my bump has gotten bigger and bigger. I’ve found that Milly’s knit dresses work SO WELL during pregnancy. They stretch with you as you grow.
After falling in love with that little polka dot number, I knew that I wanted to wear another knit dress by Milly for the rewardStyle conference. They’re so comfy and stretchy yet oh-so-chic! That’s a winning combination for a preggo lady that needs to look put-together. 🙂 This pleated monochromatic dress was perfect. It’s also available in a version where black is the most prominent color instead of ivory.
Now that I’m even more Milly-obsessed than ever, I’ve got my eye on a few more stretchy knit dresses that are sure to look cute styled atop a big bump. See my faves below!
- This multicolor striped number is SO PERF for spring.
- This black and white striped dress is darling and ON SALE! I love the ruffle detail on the sleeve.
- This off-the-shoulder LBD would be fabulous for a wedding or a more formal event.
Side note: When wearing a stretchy dress that shows off the bump, I always sport these maternity spanx underneath! I LOVE THEM.
hugs to you,
