Casual Maternity Outfit: Polka Dots and White Jeans

This is a casual, comfortable maternity look that I put together a couple of weeks ago.  For those curious, I was between 17-18 weeks pregnant in these shots.  My bump had definitely popped!

I am in love with Asos maternity t-shirts.  I have 3 so far, but I may have to purchase some others.  This polka dot one is a much bolder pattern than I typically wear, but once I put this maternity outfit together, I loved it.

The jeans are not maternity (I’ve been using the hair tie trick), but they are still really comfortable.  They were a J. Crew Factory find.  My mom found these shoes at the Gap outlet recently.  I listed some similar ones (at great prices) below.

Let’s talk about this backpack… if I find something I love, I tend to use it over and over and over again.  This bag fits into that category!  I think I may have posted the link in a previous post, but I’ve added the link below as well.  Asos for the win! faux leather backpack; maternity look, white jeans and polka dotsfaux leather backpack; maternity white jeans outfit

And the details: Todd and Davis gave me this petite Daniel Wellington watch with rose gold for Mother’s Day, and it is perfect for casual, warm weather looks.  I know I’ve posted this bracelet before, but here is the link to the shop again.  Mine has my son’s birthday and name. My cuff is old from Forever 21, but I found an almost identical one.

A messy top-knot is a must for busy moms, especially in the humidity of the South!

Dressing the Bump with Pink Blush + A Giveaway!

UPDATE: The winner of the Pink Blush giveaway is Stacie Meiburg! Congratulations, Stacie! A gift card will be emailed to you!!! Thank you all for commenting and participating! 

All of you mamas and soon-to-be mamas know how difficult it can be to stay stylish during pregnancy.  I have had my emotional moments, standing in our closet, without a clue what to wear – or what will even fit!  (Literally shedding tears…isn’t that absolutely ridiculous?!  I should just be thankful, but some days I am a hormonal mess!  Keeping it real around here.) Anyway…I am currently 18 weeks, but since this is my second, my bump is out!

It was a relief to find Pink Blush Maternity, because they offer cute, chic, comfortable, stylish maternity AND nursing clothing that won’t break the bank.  For example, this ivory cutout tunic is swoon-worthy!  They also have non-maternity clothes that are really cute.  And I have some really great news…Pink Blush is offering one of my readers a $75 gift card!  I posted the giveaway details at the bottom of this post, as well as on instagram.

The red is unexpected, but it immediately stood out to me!  As soon as I tried it on, I felt a confidence boost.  I will be able to wear it comfortably for months to come.  If you’re not a red person, it comes in 5 other colors.

For this outfit I wanted something that could work for spring, cooler summer nights, and even into fall.  This dress would be appropriate for church, as a wedding guest, for your baby shower, a night out with the girls, or a date night!  Every couple should go on a fancy date before the baby comes, in my humble opinion. Babymoon, anyone?!

I paired the red dress with a wooden bead necklace (similar), my favorite heeled sandals (similar, too), and an embroidered clutch that I borrowed from my mom’s closet (similar). My nails are my current favorite OPI polish.
