What I Wore Wednesday - Striped Maternity Maxi

I know that I have said that you don't really need maternity maxi dresses, and I stand by that statement.  My regular maxis continue to serve me well.  That being said, this maxi was on sale at Gap Maternity and I had a 40% off coupon code so it only ended up costing me about $20.   For that price I decided to give it a try.

I wasn't sure I was going to keep it, but once I tried it on there was no way it was going back.  It is cotton, but it is the softest, lightest cotton ever!  It is super comfortable and now that I'm 7 months pregnant, comfort is even more important to me than ever.

If I'm completely honest, I only wore these sandals for a little while.  They are super cute but don't provide a lot of support and since I've been having problems with my foot I swapped in my rainbows.  Speaking of rainbows, if you have never worn their flip-flops, run out and buy a pair.  They are so wonderful.  They conform to your feet, last forever, and if you go to their store they have their factory seconds for a lot cheaper even though I can't tell what makes them "seconds".  Just remember you have to break them in, you don't buy them conformed to your feet.  Once you have worn them for a bit, they will be the most comfortable flip-flops you can possibly imagine.

Sorry for my little ramble, I just really love my rainbows.  Anyway, this outfit was perfect for another scorching October day (in the low 90s).  I love the way that a dress is so easy to throw on, but always makes you look a little more pulled together.

The weather report is calling for cooler weather this week and I'm super excited to hopefully bust out a sweater!  My fingers are crossed that for the next What I Wore Wednesday I'll have an actual fall outfit to post.
