I don’t know about you but pregnant or not I live in maxi dresses in the summer. They’re just so easy to throw on and do whatever. Now that I’m pregnant the trick is looking for dresses without a defined waist or with an empire waist so they work with my bump! I was so excited when I stumbled across this basic maxi dress from Forever 21 at the beginning of the summer! Sadly it has since sold out but I did link a few other great everyday black maxis to add to your own wardrobes below! Sorry that tends to happen so often, I need to be quicker about posting my faves as soon as I find them!

I love throwing on an oversized kimono with a dress because it adds a great element to your outfit without making you over heat in the summer. Pregnancy has made me hot allll the time so anything I can do to be cooler is my goal but I also don’t want to wear the same kind of outfit every single day, so adding a kimono will really mix up my looks. I’ve already worn this maxi with a couple different kimonos and a jean jacket at night because it’s just so versatile. No need to have multiple black maxis in your closet when you could have one great one that goes with everything! Plus you really can’t beat the prices at Forever 21, am I right? 🙂 Even if it only lasts one season, it’s so worth it! I’m wearing a medium for size reference and have found that sizing up is still working for me in a lot of regular clothing BUT I will be needing a few more maternity tops as I head into my third trimester on Friday! Yessss home stretch!! 🙂
The hubs and I are heading out of town this weekend for one of my cousins weddings and I am so excited about the two maternity dresses I got to wear for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding so stayed tuned for details on those! 🙂 Did you see all the cute Nordstrom goodies that arrived yesterday!? I unpacked the 3 boxes and tried everything on over on snapchat (mrsmadelynw) so check it out and screen shot what you want me to style and post on the blog first! So far I’m finding almost everything runs true to size or slightly oversized even with my bump so you should be safe with your current size or down one in most of the blouses and cardigans! I’m dying for the booties I ordered to get here already and I ordered the cutest Stuart Weitzman shoes for baby girl, OMG I die! They should be here today!! Hooray! If you haven’t had a chance to shop the sale yet make sure you don’t wait to much longer! I posted all my faves, here and the sale opens to the public on Friday so after that pretty much everything will be gone, for reals!
I hope you have a great Wednesday and thanks so much for stopping by!
