As of Monday it’s officially spring and I couldn’t be happier. Flowers are blooming, the weather has been so beautiful – although we might get more rain – and I’m celebrating in wedges and a maxi dress. This dress was really the solution to my late pregnancy woes when nothing was fitting.
I’ve had this dress for way too long without wearing it. I almost wore it to a baby shower but decided at the last-minute to wear something else. But I knew I had to get it photographed while I’m still pregnant. It’s not maternity but another one of those tight, stretchy, affordable (under $20!) pieces you don’t mind buying when you have a bump. And if it gets a little stretched out, no big deal.
Happy Friday! Coming off a vacation and going back to work is never easy, even when it’s just a quick weekend getaway. But we made it to the weekend and I’m excited for a couple days with nothing on the schedule. I took a bunch of pictures in Palm Springs and wanted to share. It’s one of my favorite places to relax so I usually only pack the basics. Coverups and cutoffs were pretty much on repeat all weekend.
I actually received a few new coverups towards the end of the summer and never got a chance to wear them. This red tasseled one from Eberjey is so soft and perfect for pool side lounging and I’m just as obsessed with this embroidered one from Chicwish.
It has really been the summer of off the shoulder everything and I’m fully embracing it. This dress is light, chic check out the price! I wore it to an outdoor Birthday party over the weekend and stayed cool. Sometimes that’s hard to do in August. It can be hard to justify spending money on clothes this late in the season, but when they’re priced this well they’re way worth it. I don’t know about you but I’ve been pretty sick of all my summer clothes and this dress was the perfect excuse to change it up.
