secret garden

maternity dress: ASOS // sandals: stockholm // hat: world market (similar) // clutch: hobo
baby bump: 22 weeks

I don't know what took me so long to finally order something from ASOS.  I've been eyeing things on there for forever, plus most everything is decently priced.  It was my need of a maternity bathing suit + the realization that shipping is free both ways that finally caused me to pull the trigger.  If you haven't yet -- check them out!  With return shipping, you've really got nothing to loose!

I felt a little "risky" when I ordered this dress.  Most fashion advice for pregnant people is to stay away from floral.  Especially after this outfit choice of pregnant Kim Kardashian!  eeks.  and perhaps I resemble her in this dress, maybe I don't -- but I say, whatever you want to wear when you are pregnant... wear it!! And that goes for Kim K. too!  If she felt hot rocking that floral dress and gloves than more power to her!  If you wear what makes you feel good then you will treat yourself better and your baby will be healthier for it.  

That's my opinion! What says you?

  1. You look awesome!! And while I definitely think you out-did Kim K by a longshot, you are so right, pregnant women, live it up..even if it is in floral elbow-length gloves!!

  2. I think you look great--- and not gonna lie, the gloves were terrible on Kim, but I do think all the internet backlash against her was also terrible.

  3. You look simply gorgeous in that dress! I'm so happy to hear a positive review of ASOS..not that I usually don't. Like you, I've eyed several pieces from there but have yet to actually order anything. I'll have to change that ASAP!
