Maternity Style: ASOS Dress

dress: asos maternity (similar non-maternity) // headband: f21 (similar
// shoes: converse 

*bump status: 32 weeks

Babies having babies. That's how I feel sometimes. I mean, can I really have a kid? I'm a child myself.  Then I remember that 28 is a more than appropriate age to have a child and I have to force myself to get it together. But then I wear outfits like this where I look like a little kid, which doesn't really help my psychological issues. In my defense, I wore this for a day of shopping with my sister and not to work or anything, but I definitely felt like a child. The skater-y dress, the sneaks, the headband. Whatever, I'm not 30 yet, so it's fine. 

Also, I have to comment on the fact that this dress was my first ASOS purchase. I ordered a few items and was really happy with how fast the items shipped and how easy they were to return (I bought this same dress in green in a larger size just to see... the sizing is true to pre-maternity sizing). I did a ton of research before ordering online and couldn't find much about sizing, so I thought I would put my two cents out there.Unfortunately, now I find myself stalking the ASOS website looking for new maternity clothes (that I don't need).

Because Shanna Said So


  1. I freaking love ASOS. I am going to buy allll my maternity clothes from there (one day...) i really wished they had reviews on their site, it would be so helpful!

  2. Even when you turn 30, people still think you look like a child regardless of whether or not you're wearing heels, real pants, and an oxford. My students (even the ones with good grades) are all convinced I am not over 24. Thanks, mom and dad, you passed down a lot of unfun genes, but at least I picked up the "ages well" gene.

    Anyway, this color looks awesome on you, and sneakers with dresses is like the warm weather version of boots with dresses, no?

    I've never tried ASOS because I'm afraid of their sizing, but they have CUTE stuff.

  3. Such a pretty dress on you!! I haven't ordered anything from ASOS but today I'm seeing so many great pieces from there.

  4. So cute! I looked at Asos' maternity stuff but never ended up trying it - this one is a great find. And I just love a cute dress + white sneakers look.

  5. Such a cute dress! Blue is your color! I haven't ordered anything from ASOS yet but I've seen a lot of pieces I like.


  6. Cute dress, I think it's adorable. I hope you are well, you look great. Rachel xo

  7. If I could buy the entire ASOS maternity line, I would! Great choice...this dress is fantastic.

  8. Oh I love ASOS, they're so great. And you look great! This looks perfect, so comfy and cute, I love it~

  9. Enjoy looking young. One day it will end - although I did get carded the other day!!! That made my whole week. You look like an adorable, happy mommy-to-be!

  10. Asos killlllssss it for me so much. Plus that freaking shipping is so great!

  11. Babies having babies... that's my catchphrase!

  12. Look how cute you are! Love that dress. And I totally know how you feel. Sometimes when I find out someone is pregnant, it takes me a minute to remember that it is OK and not like an "Uh oh!"


  13. Aw look at you with your adorable headband and dress! I know what you mean about not feeling old enough. It's like, is this allowed? Are the pregnancy police going to stop me when I start showing? You try so hard NOT to get pregnant it's a weird mindset when you are trying and get pregnant!

  14. Such a stunning colour on your skin tone, love the style on you. You look beautiful!

  15. Okay you are adorable. Plus, I am over 30 and I would still rock this look!

    1. Inge, you're over 30??? Oh my gosh i thought for sure you were in your mid-20s. Wow i never would have guessed! Haha

  16. Adorable!! I've drooled over several ASOS maternity dresses, but have yet to buy one. Guess I shouldn't start at almost 38 weeks. Haha.

  17. You look so cute, love that little dress way to dress-up the bump. xoxo

  18. I think you look super cute! I have never ordered from ASOS before but I've seen so many cute things from there lately I think I should check them out!

  19. Don't you look adorable?! I'm 28 too - and even when I'm 30 I will still wear what I want and I hope you will too!! lol

  24. You look great, you really are glowing! I think the same thing when Adam and I talk about having kids, then I realize I'm 28... how did that happen?!

  25. Oh, this is SUCH a great maternity dress! And you're so funny - you're not a baby! I was 26 when I had my first... though looking back, I was sort of a baby. Ha!

  26. Looking so pretty in blue!!!

    Not sure what you'll be feeling like but if you're up for it, Holly and I have planned a big blogger service event: http://passionpinkandpearls.blogspot.com/2014/10/attention-oklahoma-bloggers.html

  28. I've been seriously considering putting in an order to ASOS, but I have no idea where to start, and I really shouldn't be spending as I'm wayyy over budget :/

  29. What a great dress, Ashley! I bet you can wear this after your boy is born, too! The color is so pretty on you, especially with your hair color :)
