That's enough on my little pity party, onto the clothes. Now that I am entering my third trimester (I'll be 27 weeks on Saturday) I figured it was time to break out the maternity clothes. I saved everything from my pregnancy with Jake plus I've inherited things from a few people. I spent some time on Labor Day going through the bin and doing laundry. One of the pieces that I'm adding back into my closet was this dress.
I actually wore this dress for the first day of school when I was pregnant with Jake, 5 years ago. I was 6 weeks less pregnant then than I am now, but I had also gained a lot more weight that time around so this is still a little roomy.
I wanted to look a little dressed up, but it has been disgustingly hot here and I wanted something that was going to help me stay cool. This dress is cotton so it is nice and breathable.
I was a little nervous about spending the whole day on my feet (and rightfully so, they were killing me by the end of the day) so I decided flats were in order, though my favorite wedges would have been even cuter. This sweet little pair of flats are actually kids' shoes. (I'm a size 6 so I can wear a girl's 4.) The cut-outs make them a little more interesting than a plain white flat would be, plus they add a little bit of air flow.
