A huge thank you to PinkBlush for your contribution to this post!
First, let me say welcome to the start of my Modest Maternity series! As a modest dresser myself and someone who has been pregnant 5 times, I know what a struggle it can be to find maternity clothes that are both stylish and modest at the same time. After 5 pregnancies, I've learned that it's not only possible but much simpler than I ever anticipated!
In this series, I'm going to share with you the tips and tricks I have learned to ease the dreaded maternity fashion woes. Spoil Alert: All of the featured outfits work post-pregnancy as well ;-) Yes ma'am! Say bye-bye to your post-pregnancy fashion woes as well!
Now, the truth is, pregnancy can be very taxing on the body but it's also one of the most beautiful miracles of life. I believe we should be able to enjoy the beauty of pregnancy without sacrificing the joys of dressing with femininity and grace! We shouldn't have to dress in last year's camping tent just to attain modesty. (Disclaimer: If you like the super aired out look then you rock it mama! Comfort...and air... are just as important!) So, without further adieu, let's get into my first pick in the Modest Maternity series...
Most of us know that when it comes to modest fashion...maxi dresses are an absolute necessity! Not only are they incredibly versatile but also...ahem...forgiving if you know what I mean. Plus, there's something so feminine and graceful about a long flowy dress! So, naturally, my first outfit choice contains this gorgeous floral print maxi.
The maxi I chose for this outfit is actually a maternity dress from PinkBlush Maternity. I fell in love with the print on this dress the moment I laid eyes on it! I'm big time into the floral prints right now so, of course, this was right down my alley. (Just a side note: This look can be achieved with any print OR even a solid color if that's what you fancy!)
Initially, I was hesitant about whether or not to get this dress. Yes, I loved the print, but I was concerned that either the material would be to thick and therefore to hot OR it would be to thin and therefore to sheer. However, I decided to give it a shot and I'm so glad I did!
This maternity dress is an absolute dream for any pregnant woman. PinkBlush has managed to strike the perfect balance of weight and breathability that lends both reliable coverage and total comfort! Not to mention, the material is super soft and feels great against my extra sensitive skin.
I also love the fact that this dress is long enough that I could comfortably wear a wedge without the "waiting for a flood" look but still wear flats without tripping and falling on my face. I chose just a simple white pair of canvas sneakers for this look. Pairing it with a light washed cropped jean jacket offered the casual element I was shooting for.
I played off the casual look by adding a high "sock bun" with a white head scarf. Then softened it up a bit with some loose hair pieces in the front.
As for the accessory pieces, I chose rose gold because I wanted just enough to accent without distracting from the overall look. Usually I'm all about statement pieces but this look just didn't call for it. Less was more in this case =)
And, of course, no outfit is complete without a complimentary bag! I chose a light blue shoulder bag that made the blue in this dress POP! It matched the blue elements so perfectly I thought surely this was a match made in heaven!
And that completes the first look in the Modest Maternity series! I really like the way it turned out. Not only was I comfortably covered but I felt gracefully stylish as well! And the best part? I can still rock this look after baby comes! Again, the beauty of the maxi dress. Whether pregnant or not, it's the perfect addition to any modest closet =)
Looking for something more dressed up? Stay tuned! I'm going to show you how I style the same dress for a more church-friendly look! Yay for versatility!
Until next time, Shalom!
