The Perfect Baby Shower Dress

We all know baby showers have become a fashion show now. Like seriously, have you seen them? From the over the top flower walls to the King and Queen chairs - its a full on event. I'm not hating! However, I believe that moms to be want to be comfortable. You'll be hugging people, getting up and down to open gifts and you might want to partake in some dancing. So why feel restricted in your outfit?

Here are my top 5 picks for the dress that will do just that!

I hope you've enjoyed my top picks for your baby shower. Whatever you wear make sure you're comfortable and HAPPY. That's the most imprortant thing.

Already had your shower? What did you wear? 

Moms to be...are you looking for the perfect dress??

Hi Mom!

I know the struggle can be real and with all of the fabulousness of maternity photos these days you want these images to be perfect and what a better way to do that than to start with the basics! Dress comes first - they are easy and most likely you're going to be taking these photos somewhere between 25-35 weeks so you will start feeling some discomfort. Make it easy on yourself!

Let me show you my top 5 picks for dresses!!! I hope I have something for everyone if given the chance to do this again I'm opting to bare my belly! I have never had a maternity photoshoot before. Well, I took some photos with my first but they were NOTHING to brag about. 

Keep an open mind and remember any maxi dress can be turned maternity if it has the right hem...above the belly. So you can get a 2 for 1 deal there!
