I never want to come off as complaining about pregnancy but it definitely has its’ challenging moments, like getting dressed once the bump is large and in charge. As a mama-to-be, I think it’s so important to find clothes that help me feel my very best. Even when you’re not expecting, that quick swipe of lipstick or right pair of jeans can alter your mood and help boost your confidence. It’s such a small thing that can impact your day or mindset in a very big way. I actually chatted about body confidence in this post in case you’re interested.
The LBD is said to be a classic wardrobe staple for every woman and that certainly shouldn’t change once you’re expecting. In fact, I encourage you to go out and find one that hugs all your new curves! It’s a little something you can do for yourself. This little black maternity dress from PinkBlush did just that for me without accentuating anything I didn’t want to. It’s equal parts timeless and flirty and easily a great choice for the holiday season.
WHAT I’M WEARING
The thing about the right LBD or I should say LBMD, is that it can appear a lot more expensive than it really is. This one is under $60 and looks and feels like something that could cost double. Add the right accessories and you can easily dress it to fit any occasion you’re attending.
For this look, I went with a ton of sparkle and sequins. I don’t normally go for sparkle earrings, clutch, and heels but this time it felt right. I think the simple nature of the scoop neck and ruffle hem really allowed me to up the ante just a bit. I topped it off with red lips because why not!? In my opinion, a little black dress always calls for your favorite red. Mine’s currently this one, though I’ve been partial to this one recently.
Tell me about the LBD or if you’re expecting, little black maternity dress, in your closet right now. What makes it so special and what about it made you fall in love with it? For me, it’s always about the fit and fabric. I don’t worry much about trends as much as I do about how it fits my body type and if the fabric will last me a long time, especially if I’m investing.
Thank you for sharing your day with me! I’ve got just a few more holiday-inspired posts coming your way but if you need some more inspo, definitely check out the holiday style section of the blog!
