On a recent girl’s trip to Dallas, I wore this oh-so-pretty printed number for a night out on the town! Today I’m sharing what we were up to that night & I’m also talking all about what to look for when shopping for non-maternity dresses when you’re pregnant.
The most comfortable pair of heels, yall!
I rocked this pretty Planet Blue dress when I was about 22 weeks along (I’m now 28!) so I still had a lot of growing left to do. Not quite filling out maternity dresses to their full potential, I knew I wanted to try to find a regular maxi dress that would work with my growing bump.
This maxi dress’ silhouette is fitted at the waist, but not “too fitted.” So I was able to pull the waistline just above the bump for more of an empire waist feel. The long flowy fabric was comfortable and accommodated my mom-to-be figure just perfectly.
When shopping for non-maternity dresses to wear over your bump, make sure to look for waistlines that can be adjusted or are are a bit looser. Dresses with a lot of fabric, whether they be shift or maxis work great too!
Our Night Out in Dallas
After a busy day of brunching shopping (vacations are hard you guys *wink wink*), the girls and I headed to the Dallas Contemporary for the opening of the Bruce Weber photography exhibit.
We sipped on cocktails and mocktails while we people watched against the view of the Dallas skyline.
The photographs on display were simply stunning. From Weber’s travels throughout South Africa, to Europe, to Morocco and beyond, everywhere you turned was an eye-catching image.
His fashion editorial shots were just as stunning, many with recognizable faces too!
After the opening party, we all headed to Dos Jefes for dinner. Dos Jefes is a swanky tequila and tapas lounge offering Latin-inspired fare. I ordered fruit filled steak & avocado quesadillas – definitely a unique combination, but it worked!
There were so much to do & see in Dallas while we were there, and so much that we missed out on too. Can’t wait to go back to visit my Texas neighbors and see more of their pretty sights soon!
And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
