One month until baby C arrives! What better way to celebrate than with sharing our maternity photo’s.
I knew with our maternity session I wanted something with a little glam and sophistication. I am actually a bit moody in personality and since I am about to turn 32 and my hubs is 33 I really wanted a look that captured this era of age for us. I also wanted to go almost full opposite of my boho baby shower look.
I opted for a long black gown. I wanted something dramatic. Can you believe this beauty is only $51?!?!?! Such a style steal. There are a lot of really pretty customized maternity gowns out there but most of them did not look wearable again for the future and are basic jersey stretch fabric. I couldn’t justify dropping $200-$300 on a dress I would never wear again when there’s still items we need for the nursery.
I sized up two sizes in this dress since it’s not technically a maternity dress but the fabric is stretchy. I wanted to make sure my bump had the room it needed. For jewelry I opted for these statement lion door-knocker earrings (because baby C is due to be a Leo just like his mama) I managed to style my own hair in a mix of fishtail and regular milkmaid braids, which is a miracle because I am terrible at up-dos.
