3rd Trimester Style- One Dress, Two Ways

Ok guys, I am in my 30th week and my wardrobe options have gone down a ton all of a sudden. Much of what I could wear in my 2nd trimester is history. But I am not losing heart! I am still keeping up with my “no maternity clothes” challenge and I have put together for you a couple looks you can create with the same dress (which I will be doing A LOT of in the next 10 weeks).

Date Night

This dress is pretty short (especially now that with the bump) so it really is not practical for a day where I would be dealing with kids. But it was fun an sassy for a night out with my man or even with a group of girls. “Fun and Sassy” are not exactly easy to come by at this stage in the game but showing off the legs a bit made me feel like I still had a figure 🙂 The heels are obviously not an option right now for chasing around kids so I would surely limit these to a date night….preferably one where I would be sitting the majority of the time!

Dress: Anthropologie, Belt: H&M, Shoes:

Casual Day

So this is what I wore to church today and I felt cute, modest and comfortable. Such a different take on the same dress. With jeans underneath it is super casual and fun. I am just loving the tank tied in a knot above my belly right now so I am working that look a lot. And the heels are actually really comfy, so they were not a problem. And I know I am making some crazy laughing faces, but they are all real. My dad was ruthlessly making fun of all my poses in the background 🙂 I’ll admit, I do feel pretty stupid sometimes!

Dress: Anthropologie, Tank & Shoes: Target, Jeans: ANGL

This actually may be one of my favorite looks for the whole pregnancy! I hope you have found some inspiration and some motivation to switch up your closet a bit! Make it work for you! Have a great week. XOXO- Christie

    Hey Christie!  Saw you at church, but didn’t get a chance to talk to you.  I can’t believe you’re 30 weeks.  You look fantastic and you have awesome ideas.  I’ve forwarded links to some young women I know, who are pregnant.  They really are enjoying being able to repurpose their clothing and spend that money on baby things.  Great job!
