Let’s talk maternity style…
Okay, moms… am I the only one who finds it challenging to feel beautiful while pregnant? Your body changes so drastically and so quickly that it can be hard to keep up. For me, the hardest part of feeling attractive during pregnancy is finding flattering clothes. Cute maternity clothes are hard to come by!
I’ve written before about how, for various reasons, much of my maternity wardrobe from Baby #1 isn’t working for me this time around. It’s a different season, I’m a different size, and my style has changed a lot. So, I was totally game when PinkBlush Maternity asked if I wanted to feature their cute maternity clothes on my blog!
Maternity Style for a Summer Pregnancy
In these photos, I’m wearing the Peach Floral Abstract Wrap Maternity/Nursing Maxi Dress. The gorgeous floral pattern and luxurious fabric make me feel beautiful in this dress. But most importantly, this dress is amazingly comfortable! And as any mom can attest, comfort is key during pregnancy. Especially during a summer pregnancy, which I’m a little nervous about. I’m kind of a baby about the heat even when I’m not pregnant. Bring on all the dresses! And air conditioning. Lots of air conditioning.
I love how this dress will transition to the “4th trimester” (and beyond!) as well. I struggled to find nursing-friendly clothes after my son was born, so I was immediately impressed with how easy it will be to breastfeed in this dress. PinkBlush offers several dresses in this same nursing-friendly style, so you can easily find a pattern (or several!) that you’ll love.
After Colton’s birth, I mainly lived in nursing tanks (for an embarassingly long time). We had a couple of weddings to attend when he was about 6 months old, and I remember panicking that I couldn’t find anything nice to wear that would 1) allow me to nurse and 2) be flattering to my postpartum body. I’m excited to have this dress in my closet now so I won’t have to stress about dressing for nice events after Baby #2 is here!
Accessorizing a Maternity Dress
Any woman knows that accessories make the outfit. I accessorized my PinkBlush Maternity dress with a flower crown and a bright blue heart pendant. I made the flower crown myself! It was my first one and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’ll be posting a tutorial soon. They’re super easy to make and don’t take much time at all!
My husband gave me the beautiful blue heart necklace for Christmas. It’s gorgeous, but I honestly don’t wear it too often as I don’t have a lot of things in my closet that it coordinates with. I was so excited when I realized it was the perfect blue to match the floral pattern on my PinkBlush dress!
Random fact, my husband (then boyfriend) gave me diamond studs for our first Valentine’s Day… way back in 2005! I’ve worn them every day since. I don’t know what I’d do if I lost them. I’m a little surprised I haven’t, to be honest. I have a horrible track record of losing jewelry.

Is this just for the maternity or is it for maternity or women’s ?

What a cute dress! I’m not familiar with PinkBlush – I need to check them out! I recently gave up on wearing most of my “normal” pants and shorts now that I’m in my second trimester.
I had to give up most of my normal clothes around that same time. PinkBlush is a great source for maternity clothes! They have a lot of cute and affordable items!
