Sunflowers everywhere

View More:

When I first found out I was pregnant with baby #2, this was one of the first dresses I bought on ASOS Maternity.  And somehow I waited about 8 months to wear it because it was too hot to wear in the Summertime.  There’s so much I love about this dress.. the color grey, the lace, the pleats, and the pop of yellow (well actually the original belt was lime green but I swapped it out for yellow).  Coming from the sunflower state (well that’s Kansas, but Missouri was close enough), it’s comforting to see so many sunflowers in Utah!  They are sprinkled across roads, highways, in the mountains and in people’s backyards.

    That dress is so pretty! Can you make any commentary on how wearable your maternity fashions are after pregnancy? During my first pregnancy I mostly lived in yoga pants and flipflops, but in my second one, I’d like to jazz things up a bit….but am still uncomfortable with the idea of spending a chunk of cash on something I’m going to wear for less than a year.
