outfit: the denim dress


with the temperatures warming up, i can already tell that simple shift dresses like this one will be overtaking my wardrobe in the coming months. i wore this easy dress while painting a wall in adam’s nursery this weekend, and literally snapped these photos between drying coats of paint. i finally got his nursery “photo shoot ready” so i could share pictures on the blog, and i wore this dress while painting thinking that it might add some character if a bit of paint were to land on it. unfortunately, i wasn’t messy enough for it to happen organically, and not quite ballsy enough to just go at it with a paint brush. either way, it was the perfect thing to wear because it felt just as appropriate while going to a morning walk, painting a bedroom, or grabbing a late lunch downtown. definitely the types of clothes i love the most.

  1. Can you give some suggestions on where to buy comfy but stylish maternity wear for the 2nd and 3rd trimester? I’m sort of running into walls and not finding too many things I like…it’s a tad frustrating!

    1. oh i know exactly how you feel! a few recommendations: hatch (a little pricey, but they are versatile enough that you will be able to wear them after the baby is born), storq (perfect basics that you can accessorize in different ways), a comfy pair of maternity jeans (i got mine from target), and asos if you want something cute and trendy. hope that helps!

    1. i ordered a medium because it looked short on the model, but i kinda wish i’d gone with a small because it’s almost too oversized on me in the neckline/shoulder area. for reference, i’m 5’5″ and wear about a 4/6.
