Just Another Shift

Today officially I have only 14 days left in this pregnancy! I don’t want to seem like one of those ungrateful people because I know fertility is a sensitive issue to a lot of women (and here are some fertility top clinics), but I am SO EXCITED to be at the END of this pregnancy! I know, it’s a great miracle and I’m really excited to meet this little dude as well, but I am uncomfortable all the time! I can’t wait to be able to take deep breathes again and wear real pants once more! Never again will I take the comforts of my boyfriend jeans for granted since I haven’t been able to wear them for 2 months!

As I’m nearing the end, most everything doesn’t fit, or isn’t comfortable, and being that I have 2 weeks left, I’m certainly not going to waste money buying maternity pants or tops. Shift dresses have been one of my go-to’s with this baby and with great reason! They look awesome, are super flattering, and to top it all off are incredibly comfortable! The best thing about a shift dress during pregnancy is that it’ll maintain it’s shape and style even after this giant baby belly is gone! It’s more than just “something comfortable to get me through this big time”, it’s a great piece I’ll be able to enjoy for a while!

I picked up this one at T.J.Maxx and paired it with simple marbled studs from The Limited. The pattern on the dress is so bold that not a ton of accessories were needed to make this look super polished and perfect for a Sunday morning with my guys in downtown Tampa.
