Maternity trick ~ Maxi over the bump!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I've been trying to find creative ways to make my non-pregnant wardrobe work within the confines of an expanding middle. I have this really cute mini dress with an embellished braided top that is now being worn as a top. (See how I wore it skinny girl style here!)

I decided to tuck it into one of my favorite American Apparel maxi skirts and pulled that sucker over the bump!
A light sweater, a necklace wrapped as a bracelet, my new favorite tortoise shell ring, and I was good to go!
If you're pregs, try this trick. It totally works! I did it with this shorter vintage silk skirt (seen here) but there's something about a maxi that just feels current right now and still in the game!
Have a happy day!
