Floral dress + lace up sandals

free people floral dress

I keep saying that I have really loved dressing my growing bump - and it is true. I have loved being pregnant and watching my belly grow, finding both cute maternity and non-maternity clothing that fits these last 9 months. I think I also have mentioned how excited I am to be able to fit in some of my old clothing and styles that I love for summer that don't necessarily work with a big belly. High-waisted jeans, shirts that aren't extra long to cover the bump, and cute one piece swimsuits are just some of the things I can't wait to wear again! This last month I have also been avoiding buying anymore maternity items, just because in a few weeks I won't need them anymore, and I would rather invest in pieces I can wear again. 

This Free People dress is perfect because the gathered waist came right above my belly and I was still able to make it work without the tight part cutting across me (or just preventing me from pulling it down over my head!) Any dress with a gathered waist that hits your right under the chest is perfect for both before and after baby. If you are like me and just ready to transition to non-maternity clothes once again toward the end of pregnancy, look for dresses like these to satisfy your clothing cravings!
