Style: The Little White Dress

dress: banana republic // flats: urban outfiters (similar)  // necklace: f21 (similar

*bump status: 22 weeks

So, the bump exists. I actually didn't quite realize it until I put on a shift dress. I've been gravitating toward loose clothes, but now that everyone knows I'm preggers (!!!), I'm embracing it. Unfortunately, to the general public I still look like I ate a giant burrito for lunch, but I think know there is a baby in there so I feel good about the belly.

And. This. Dress. I may have wandered into Banana Republic over my birthday weekend even though they don't sell maternity clothes. Actually, I was with my friend Teresa who is more pregnant than me so I don't know what we were thinking. Anyway, they were having an extra 50% off sale styles so I had to look. I have been wanting a LWD (that's "little white dress" for anyone who has better things to do in their life than think about white dresses) but I couldn't justify it because, well you can't wear it to a wedding (clearly I don't have enough occasions to dress up). But this, gorgeous dress was on sale for $21 (with the extra discount) and it was a tall size so it was meant to be. I mean, I had to buy it, right?

  5. The bump exists! I couldn't imagine seeing the bump and not knowing you were pregnant-- that would be the biggest food baby I've ever seen! I wonder if there is some world record for biggest food baby. Beef sandwiches make me bloat so much, I could pass as being 22 wks pregnant, ha. There goes my theory about your obvious pregnancy. Anyway. You look fabulous in this dress, I'm so glad you got it!!

  8. That dress is so perfect and shows off your tiny bump so well! I love it! And that dress is casual enough you could get away with wearing it to work, especially with a blazer or cardigan.

  25. Ashley, congratulation! :) You look beautiful here, love that dress. I noticed something strange in my pregnancy too, the minute you tell people you are preggers, the bump suddenly grows ten folds!

    ReplyDelete
  26. AH! I'm so, so, so behind on catching up on blogs, so I haven't had the chance yet to congratulate you on your pregnancy! SO exciting!!! I am so happy for you :) Your little bump is adorable - I can't wait to see it grow!

  27. First of all, that bump... SO cute! I don't remember if I told you congrats or not yet so congratulations! This LWD is too perfect. I love that you can wear it pregnant and after baby... though now that I'm thinking of it, white + baby probably doesn't = a good idea, but maybe for a date night with the hubby :)

    A LWD (of course we know what it means!!) is totally on my list as well. This one is a steal and looks great.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
