My Little Black Dress

9:24:00 AM


When I was pregnant with Kaylee, I did not purchase any maternity clothes at all! Here's a post I did of maternity fashion on some clothes I wore. I just didn't want to spend a lot of money on clothes that I would wear for short period of time. I would dig through my closet and wore whatever I could fit..or buy regular dresses that I know I can wear after having a baby.

My big little black H&M dress I wore throughout my pregnancy. I know you cant really tell, but my tummy was HUGE!


4 months after baby. Best $15 I spent EVER haha!


Baby K just recently turned 4 months. I have been taking a photo of her sitting in this white chair every month. See month 1-3 here. I got the idea from Making It Lovely.


Hope everyone had a great long weekend! Mine definitely went way too fast and I can use another 3 day weekend. Glad I have half day this coming Friday!

Our friend's mom watched Kaylee for us so we went to see Transformers 3 in 3D with our friends on Saturday night. I don't know what's worse..falling asleep half way down the movie or the fact that I was wearing my sunglasses by accident for a good 2 min. My friend sitting next to me was shocked that my 3D glasses was so stylish! haha #ineedtogetoutmore

  4. I love, love, love that little black dress. Its fabric and design seems soft, feminine and romantic. You looked great and very stylish when pregnant. I looked totally like a sea lion , all bloated lol. I think I only bought 3 maternity clothes and the rest I just bought regular clothes with loose fitting.

    Kaylee seems to be a little chubby now. Those chubby arms and legs...yum..yum.

  11. Hi! I'm a new follower & I LOVE this post! I can definitely relate. I'm at 30 weeks and thus far I've only had to buy 2 pairs of maternity jeans. Thankfully, my style is maternity friendly and I won't have to spend a ton of money on stuff that I won't use anymore once the pregnancy is through. You look great during and after pregnancy!

  12. Black truly is the "slimmest" color out there. You're so lucky you didn't gain a lot of weight on your face (one of my biggest fears, hahaha). Truly a versatile LBD, and I agree, best $ well spent!

  13. awe, i read making it lovely and adore those picture update posts, you've hit the mark with yours too! 4 months of bliss i'm sure. you are lovely - take a victory lap on that dress mastery!!!

    speaking of sunglasses at 3D flicks. i once threw my good ones in the 3D recycle bin after a show and the next sunny day rooted around in my bag to discover this brain stumble moment. a shopping sesh for newbies followed thereafter - baha! ♥

  15. H&M has the best little black dresses, I got one for my senior banquet there and wore it to about 5 weddings and a few showers too. I finally retired it last summer and haven't found another yet as nice & versitile.
