Summers in Dallas get HOT. It’s hard enough to stay cool during the summer months as it is, but add in being pregnant and it could be unbearable! Henry was due September 8th, so this is my second summer pregnancy. And actually, even though it’s hot, I love being pregnant in the summer.
It’s so easy to throw on a dress and sandals or sneakers, and a lot of non-maternity dresses still fit around a bump! With a mix of maternity and non-maternity, I found that after having Henry so many of the things I wore while pregnant continued to work for me until it started cooling off. Dresses really are my go-to wardrobe item!
Pink Striped Short- Sleeve Dress
The Easter bunny brought this pink striped short-sleeve dress in my Easter basket and clearly, he knew just what I needed (Thanks, mom!). If you’ve never worn Rails before, everything is soft and so light weight. The material is very breathable and the length is not too short. Rails is a non-maternity brand, so I sized up one size. You’ll be seeing a lot of this over the summer months because it’s nursing friendly, too!
Gray T-Shirt Dress
I ordered this gray t-shirt dress a few weeks ago and have been wearing it non-stop. It is lightweight, comfortable and will accommodate my ever-growing bump until July! I love that I can pair it with my go-to sneakers or sandals and can wear it from errands, to the park, to lunch.
Plaid Maxi Dress
Hatch is a great brand for pregnancy because you can wear it during and after pregnancy. I wore the brand during my pregnancy with Henry and I’ve loved it this time around, too. This plaid maxi is adorable and it was just released. I love the tiered style and the colors are perfect for summer. This is a dress I will wear now and also when baby is here!
White Poplin Dress
This cute little white dress screams summer. The poplin fabric is so lightweight and it just looks like a dress you could wear a million ways in the summer. Plus, the fit gives plenty of room for a growing bump!
I got this maxi dress in pink for Henry’s First Birthday and it’s one of those ones you just want to throw on all the time. It’s so easy to wear and even more comfortable. The pink is sold out, but it’s still available in black, white, blue and lilac.
