Sequin Shift Lookbook

Zara Sequin Shift Dress  |  Christian Louboutin Silver Simple Pumps  |  

Louis Vuitton Clutch (90’s)  |  t+j Designs Gunmetal Hoop Earrings  |

t+j Designs Silver Edge Bangle

A perfect date night dress; A bit of sequins, cheetah print and in black and white.  Luckily shift dresses still work with my 31 week pregnancy.  I find this silhouette easy to wear and gives me room to eat. My goal has been to buy stuff that I could wear now as well as after the baby came.  A lot of it is looking at silhouettes, fabric, and of course trying it on to see if it works.  I’m a big believer of style and comfort, but also trying on different things.  You’d be surprised what items work on a growing tummy and blazers, jackets, or layering pieces help break up your upper body.  I veer towards printed tops and dresses and solid layering pieces; it gives my body some shape and dimension.  I’m not a big fan of belting items, empire tops and dresses, as I find they emphasis the stomach, but some woman love to show off the pregnancy, so those silhouettes would definitely be the way to do it.  

Thank you for all the encouragement from Monday’s post!  It has helped me organize, get back on schedule, and look forward to things to come rather than dwell on the stress.

    I LOVE IT! Way to show off that bump. However lovely the dress, it fades in comparison next to that pregnancy glow. You look fantastic! Seattle Beauty and Fashion – Girlie Blog Seattle

    Saw that dress at Zara and it was a little too short on me. It looks great on you! I love your hair up in a top knot as well.

    Jen, you look fabulous as always. I'm glad you are focusing on the positive and letting all your readers make you strong when you feel weak. That is the amazing thing about the blogging community: we are all strangers who actually know and "get" each other! Take as much time as you need for your and your family and when you have a minute, drop back in and say hello! We'll all still be here!

    Beautiful dress. You are tiny for 31 weeks. Enjoy all the date nights you can squeeze in before baby arrives. Now I have date nights with hubby AND my little guy (and pray that he will behave in the restaurant!)
