To all my mommas in the making, getting dressed every morning can seem like a full time job in itself. Because I had a horrible experience at the maternity store, I've steered clear of going back and am happily buying things a little bit larger than normal and hitting up the Gilt maternity sales whenever possible. It's working for now.
At the beginning of my pregnancy, I had plenty of options because of baggy dresses and the belly band. I wore over sized button-ups and t-shirts on the daily.
At 15 weeks, I had to pull out the maternity shorts.
I'm not sure when it happened, but somewhere between 15 weeks and 18 weeks, I popped. I was right in the middle of wedding craziness, and a dress that had fit just fine was now making me look like a pregnant stripper. SO not a good look.
This is the husband and I with Polly Anna and Cooper on the 4th of July. I can still squeeze into some of my regular dresses. This dress is from Zara and the band hits just right above my bump.
Now a little past 20 weeks, (HALF WAY THERE!) I'm still wearing regular dresses but buying them a size bigger than I normally would. Some maternity clothes are seriously heinous and I just can't do it. I wear the same few dresses over and over, but mix them up with jewels and accessories.

Fortunately, I'm not alone in this escapade. Other than fab friends here in Wilmington, a few fellow bloggers are due right around the time that I am and have shared some fashion tips of their own!
I love Sydney's casual style. She writes one of my favorite blogs, The Daybook .
Joy from Oh joy! is equally adorable. This little shrug is ideal to cover up the tatas that have become larger than life these days!
So, all mommas and mommas to be...do you have any tips for dressing with a bump?
