A Breezy Maxi Dress for Spring

Over the last week or so I haven’t felt like getting dressed. Typically I try to get ready, put on makeup and put on “real” clothes on even though I work from home so that I feel more put together. However, the last week has consisted of leggings and cozy tops for me! Even though that’s the norm around here these days with everything going on, I did want to share this maxi dress that is perfect for spring!

I eyed this dress last year and I *finally* decided to add it to my closet this year. It’s so breezy and works really well with my growing bump! I got to wear it a few weeks ago when we were having an unseasonably warm weekend and I got quite a few compliments on it! The colors in this dress are gorgeous and I can’t wait until I have the chance to wear it out in public again… that time WILL come! And if you decide you really want to get dressed up – plan a date night with your S.O. or schedule a fun virtual happy hour with friends – the perfect excuse to get dressed up! 🙂

  • 24 weeks with our baby boy🤰🏼💙 it’s crazy to think we get to meet him in just 16 weeks, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! 👶🏻I feel grateful that I have had a healthy & happy pregnancy but, to be honest, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. As a first time mom, I have these feelings of immense sadness as the last half of this pregnancy is going to be nothing like I had envisioned. There have been a lot of tears over the fact that many exciting moments can no longer be shared with those closest to us. I know others have it much, much worse but I’ve learned it’s ok to be sad & to feel these emotions. I’m upset that I am no longer able to have a baby shower to celebrate our first born, I’m sad I don’t get to hug our family and watch their faces as they see my growing bump. I’m upset that these last few months of just the two of us look completely different - more time spent in our house quarantined and less time having date nights at our favorite spots and doing the things we want before baby arrives. I mourn the fact that our families may not get to meet our baby boy in the hospital the way we always talked about. But with any situation, I have cried it out (a lot) and decided to take it one day at a time and to find joy in each day💙 And ya know what? There’s a lot of joy amidst the chaos. It brings me so much joy to feel his daily movement (and my heart nearly burst when Nick felt him kick for the first time).🥰I am overjoyed that we have such a strong support system near and far. I love that we get to spend more time at home spoiling our fur babies. I find solace knowing that there are so many pregnant mamas out there feeling these exact emotions & we share a common experience and bond! I am grateful for those that are on the front lines caring for everyone. I know we have the best doctors carrying us through this uncertain time. We are strong mamas and we will get through this! 💕 so, I challenge you to find the join in each day no matter your situation! #24weekspregnant #24weeks #pregnancy #2ndtrimester #stylethebump #bumpstyle #pregnant #pregnantduringcovid19 #pregnantblogger #thebump #boymom #expecting #expectingmom
