Bumping into Spring in Style
by kristin coronado
Spring is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! This has to be one of my favorite seasons. The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and while my allergies are making my mascara run, I’m pleasantly distracted by the warmer weather and the opportunity to finally dress up the bump.
It’s so hard to show off your bump in the winter time so once I got a peek at Ingrid & Isabel’s Spring Collection I couldn’t wait to style everything.
One of my favorites is the Embroidered Scallop Hem Dress. Nothing makes you feel more angelic than an all white sundress with eyelet embroidery. You can dress it up or dress it down. The best part? It’s lined perfectly so you don’t have to stress about any embarrassing see-through moments. This dress has you covered, literally! The material is breathable and it’s nursing friendly. Bonus!
Want a more festive look? The Racerback Polka Dot Maxi Dress is a spring staple. Put your hair in a bun, grab your favorite red lipstick, and voila!
Just like that you’re effortlessly put together but most importantly, comfortable! This dress is a classic racer back with an empire waistline that gives you a smooth silhouette while highlighting your precious bump.
You can dress is up with some heels for that spring wedding your were dreading (because you didn’t have an outfit) or you can keep it casual for a lunch date with your girlfriends. Be prepared for the “Oh my gosh you’re glowing!” compliments. Everyone will wonder how you’re keeping it so chic throughout your pregnancy. I love all the options we have in the spring collection. It’s so difficult to feel like “you” throughout your pregnancy. You’ve gained a few pounds, your old clothes don’t fit, and the ones that do don’t make you feel pretty. These dresses have really made outings extra special for me. I’m actually excited to get dressed up. It doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing maternity clothes. I can easily throw on a different jacket or switch out my shoes to give a completely different look and I love how I can wear them pre and post baby.
I know how difficult it can be to get dressed up but don’t stress.
You’re lookin’ good mama! Embrace this spring season and show off your bump proudly!
