I was shopping for a dress to wear to a wedding this weekend and ultimately settled on this one. I can dress it up a bit with jewelry and possibly a fancier hairstyle, but it’s still casual and comfortable for summer. 

I may add a belt, but to be completely honest I’m not a huge fan of the “belt above the bump” look. Maybe it’s just me, and maybe it will look different once I’m a big bigger, but sometimes I feel like it cuts me off in a strange place. 

Anyway, I grabbed my new favorite clutch as I left to go shoot this outfit. I love how the look turned out a little bit nautical. The gold stacking rings were the perfect simple compliment to the statement necklace

    I had a thing for polka dots with my first two pregnancies – I wore this one blouse my husband called my Bubble Top almost constantly. Unfortunately, it seems to have shrunk a little (or I’m bigger!) around the edges and it’s not as comfy this time around. Still love it and had a lot of other dots-style shirts and dresses, even though I’m usually not a “dots” person when not pregnant. Kind of funny.
    This dress is adorable on you. And I really want my hair to look like yours does!!

    I’m so in love with that clutch!! It’s funny that you mentioned a belt – there have been a couple outfits you’ve posted recently that I thought about suggesting a belt. But then I thought – ‘Wait, she’s pregnant! I bet she purposely chose not to have a belt!’ Duh. :)

    You look fabulous! I have a question about your nails- Do you use shellac? I’m a hairstylist and I have 2 little boys so my hands are always in water. Your nails ALWAYS look great and freshly polished. I have tried everything BUT shellac. I would love any tips you can give me. THANKS!

    Kate you are so darn cute! I wish I looked that great when I was pregnant. I absolutely love the Stella & Dot Sanibel Pendant. I have the silver one. It is even more beautiful in person, and I love that it is reversible too.

    I seriously can’t wait to look as cute as YOU! Stripes are my favorite! Even right now I’m wearing a navy and white striped shirt with pink shorts. Stripes are just the best! Can’t wait till I look as cute as you do preggo! I have awhile before I start showing! When did you notice a real change in the bump? I’m ready for mine to start growing! :)

      Thats so nice, thank you! I really started to pop out a bit last week (19 weeks). The stripes and gathering of the dress make me look a little bigger than I actually am!

    I’ve been meaning to post a comment for a couple of weeks after I saw you at the movies. I walked in and immediately recognized you, but didn’t want to bother you nor appear to be a crazy stalker. You are gorgeous in your on-line pictures, but even more so in person! You look fantastic!

    I LOVE your Blog! I just came across your blog (via pinterest) and love your cute hair tutorials and fashion blog. Saw that you are 20 weeks pregnant and so am I due in December!! Also having a boy :) This blog gives me encouragement that I can still look cute and feel beautiful while I’m pregnant! Instead of feeling frumpy and lazy and not do my hair (it’s so hot ourside!) Thanks for giving me the boost!

    You look lovely! I started doing the belt-over-bump thing when I felt like I needed some differentiation between enormous pregnant belly and enormous pregnant chest…otherwise I felt like I was just one big blob.

    I love that dress! I’m always looking for clothing with varied stripes. So pretty! I’m definitely going to look around gap.com today.

    nno expertise in programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

    Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject buut I simply needed to ask.
