It may not look like it much, but this dress would be perfect for maternity wear. It's a smock dress which means it's super light and airy and HUGE. There's no cinched waist, so basically none of the material clings to your body. Actually, it kind of made me look like I was "expecting" when I first put it on. So to prevent anyone from wondering if I'm hiding a bump under there, I wore a belt. Any bump you see is probably just my dinner, I promise.

Here's a little style tip for ya: mixing prints is WAY more easy when the prints are of the same color. Here I paired my navy gingham dress with my navy polka-dot wedges. If you keep the rest of your accessories simple with neutral tones (like my brown watch & belt, tan hat, black sunglasses, etc.), you'll look more put together. Another tip: don't take outfit pics right after you eat dinner.

  5. I absolutely adore your outfit, Rachel! I'm a huge fan of mixing prints, and am head over heels for both your gingham dress and polka dots wedges. Deciding to pair the patterns with neutral accessories definitely helped to pull the look together gorgeously!
