All Dressed Up with Nowhere to Go

These days I am looking for any excuse to change out of my leggings and cozy sweatshirts and into “normal” clothes! Whether I’m running to the doctor’s office or to pick up takeout, I will happily use any excuse to get dressed up… even if I have nowhere special to go! I got this navy pinstripe dress right before quarantine started and I’m happy I was able to wear it once before the stay-at-home order kicked in! We are having our “drive by” baby shower in June and I might just wear this blue dress for the occasion! I thought it looked so cute paired with these platform sandals but would look great with other sandals or heels, too! P.S. This dress is technically maternity, but you can definitely wear it even if you aren’t pregnant! I plan on wearing this after baby boy arrives.

    This dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I am so excited for the warm weather, even if that means the only place I’m wearing cute dresses is to take the dog out!

    I’m with you on this. I just get dressed up for TikTok or IG, because why the heck not!? I need to go through my dresses because I think I have a dress similar to this one, and I love the detailing maternity or not!
