Styling Struggles

Dress: Motherhood Maternity // Cardigan: thrifted (similar here and here) // Shoes: Anne Klein via 6pm (similar here)

This dress was a gift from one of my sisters-in-law. She had been struggling to style it and thought that I might have more luck with it. It seemed like an easy feat. It was not. It's a short sleeved dress and since I won't be pregnant during the warmer months, if I wanted to wear the dress now I couldn't wear it on its own. I needed to find something to wear it with. After trying on several blazers and cardigans of varying styles and colors, I finally found a winning combination. The color of this cardigan paired pretty perfectly with the color of the larger flowers on the dress. It was a struggle but the gorgeous floral mirror print was worth the effort.

These pictures were taken a week ago when I was 35 weeks pregnant. I go in for my 36 week appointment tomorrow. From here on out my appointments will be weekly. It's hard to believe that I'm already at this point but I am definitely ready to be out of pain, to be able to bend over, and to meet our new little girl! Hopefully she'll arrive a week early like her older sister!
