And this is the fourth and final installment of “Dressing The Bump” for “is she pregnant or just fat beginning of second trimester” period of pregnancy.  :)  This is one of my absolute favorite ways to dress up a bump… and it’s with a maxi dress.  If I could wear a maxi dress every day for the rest of my pregnancy, I probably would.  Dresses are great because they are a whole outfit in themselves.  The way some of them (like this one) molds to the bump is just wonderful and not having to shave your legs is a real bonus.

    This was such a fun installment! I have worn a maxi dress at least twice a week for the past 8 months. They are a lifesaver, but I am admitingly ready to bid them adieu for a while after I have the baby next month!

    Loved this series! When I was pregnant I basically lived in yoga pants and flipflops. Maybe if there’s a next time, I’ll go for something more stylish!

    beautiful dress!! i certainly hated that in-between, wonder-if-she’s-preggers stage…so much that it was a relief to actually get bigger!
