First I wanted to say here is the direct link for the dress I wore in yesterday’s post! I didn’t realize it wasn’t a direct link earlier so wanted to share for those who asked, and it is also 60% off!!

And now onto this bump – so I am 24 weeks now and it is getting really hard to hide it! Not that I want to hide it because I actually love having this bump sooo so much but I hate that in between stage where people look at me funny so I am hoping I am finally past that and can finally dress this bump of mine! It only took six months haha I blame being so tall and having wide hips for that!

Anyways, I lovvve this dress.. I saw it online and it had such good reviews so I had to get it and I love that it has two layers to it so it kind of hides some flaws ;) and it is the perfect length! I will definitely be ordering it in black as well. Oh and it is not a maternity dress, I am just wearing it like it is!

Have a good weekend everyone!! xoxo

    This dress looks great on you…and the bump! I definitely think the price is worth it for having 2 layers!

    Your lipstick is always so flawless. It might be a silly request but maybe you can do a tutorial on tricks to apply?

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 5:11 am Permalink

      Aw thanks! Well I always use a liner first so that is really my only tip! Other than that I just slap it on! xo

      Thanks Hannah!! I love to wear it with dresses or even just a sweater and skinny jeans and booties! xo

    I just found your blog and I love your style! I have two babies of my own, and I wish I had better inspiration for dressing during pregnancy… I basically lived in H&M tee-shirt dresses the whole time. They worked well though. :)

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 5:05 am Permalink

      Thanks so much!! So fun you have two babies :) I am sure you were adorable in those H&M dresses! I have been wearing a few myself! Whatever is comfy haha xoxo

  36. Kjerstin February 22, 2014 at 5:47 am Permalink

    Love the dress! Is it no longer on sale? I checked Nordstrom.com and it looked as if it was full price. Is there a promo code? Thanks!!

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 5:00 am Permalink

      Oh no the dress I am wearing in this post is not on sale I was referring to the dress I wore in the post before this one! :)

  37. Love your bump! I am 5′ 9′ and you are showing a lot more than I was at 24 weeks :) I think our bodies are all just so different. No one even asked me if I was pregnant until I was over 30 weeks, but it is so fun when they do :) Love your dress!!!

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 4:59 am Permalink

      Thanks so much!! Oh really?! Everyone keeps telling me I am so small for how far along I am but maybe not! It is true, our bodies all carry babies different it is so weird! xo

  38. Bethann February 22, 2014 at 11:24 pm Permalink

    I just love your adorable bump and the way you styled it with that dress. Smart to wear non-maternity clothes throughout your pregnancy so you can wear them after your little precious comes in to the world! Otherwise you will have a bunch of maternity clothes lying around after your delivery!

    You look great! xoxo, Bethann

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 4:58 am Permalink

      Thanks so much!! And yeah so true, I have been trying to wear non maternity as much as possible because it kind of seems like a waste! I did have to get maternity jeans though it was driving me nuts not being able to button mine haha :)

  39. Jenn February 23, 2014 at 5:37 am Permalink

    Hope I look half as cute as you!! Gorgeous!!

    Love the dress. What a cute way to put the bump on display.

  42. Erica Tanner February 24, 2014 at 12:32 am Permalink

    Did you go up a size for being pregnant? Or just stay the same?

    • amber February 24, 2014 at 4:50 am Permalink

      I actually just stayed the same.. I maybe should have gone up a size so I can wear it more as I get bigger but I wanted to be able to wear it after pregnancy! xx

  43. elissa February 24, 2014 at 1:50 am Permalink

    Darn you Amber! Now I want that dress. I guess it’s ok since it’s a steal! LOve it. And I love that it’s grey. Perfect for Spring.

    Of course you look darling with that bump! So exciting that a little baby will come your way soon.

    I love this dress on you! you look gorgeous. I am 20 weeks pregnant and am looking for a dress like this. I see it is all gone, but I love the brand and may get something similar. I see you said it is a regular dress, so did you go up a size in the fit? How did you make it work with your bump.

    You are great and I am so glad I found your blog. You have THE cutest maternity looks!
