I have been on the hunt for some new pieces this Spring to add to my closet that would not only be perfect for dressing the bump this summer, but that could also be worn again next year. I hit up the sale Old Navy and stocked up. One piece I couldn’t wait to wear was this beautiful eyelet dress!
While the shift dress is a flattering look normally, I decided I needed to dress the bump a little so I added a simple braided belt. I added simple flats for Mother’s Day brunch at my brother’s house at the beach this past Sunday. (First I grabbed a pair of brown wedges, which were a perfect look, but thought flats seemed more appropriate for the day)
The dress is lined so it is not as sheer as many of the other dresses out today. And with a price tag under $20 right now, you can’t go wrong!
I was back and forth on whether I wanted to find out the gender of the baby but Brandon was positive that there was no way he could wait until August to find out! So of course, if he was going to know, I had to know too. I mean, how could someone keep that big of a secret during all the prepping and planning!
Because Brandon was going to be working over the weekend after our appointment, we choose to find out at the ultrasound. Brandon wouldn’t have time over the weekend for a gender reveal for us to find out with our families, but my brother asked if he could do a gender reveal for my family to find out when we would be together at my parent’s for my dad’s birthday. So in true pinterest fashion, Mark prepped with cans of silly string and my nephew had fun finding out they had a baby girl cousin on the way!
My sweet co-worker has been obsessed with gender reveal videos on youtube and asked if I could hold off on posting online what we were having so we could have an office gender reveal (I work with some of the sweetest people). So the office girls planned a little lunch party and we decided on a box of balloons to make the big reveal. I prepped the box and all my coworkers wore pink or blue to pick sides. It was so fun to share the news with them!
So when the secret was out we took the opportunity when we had the bunny on hand at Easter to do a quick little shoot.
We are so excited to have a little girl on the way. I know she will have Brandon wrapped around her little finger and of course she will have some of the prettiest smocked dresses from my mom. Can’t wait till she is here!
