{Wardrobe} Wednesday: Maternal Instincts

Remember how Sydney totally tried to trick us all when she was pregnant but hadn't announced it by wearing flowy clothes or holding things strategically over her belly area?
 Well this is not what I am trying to do. Even though this would be an ideal maternity outfit and I think any of my prego friends would be wise to borrow this maxi dress from me, I am in no way pregnant. 
 So there you have it: Sometimes I just dress like a pregnant woman because I love being comfortable. And yes this is a dress. You can see it here if you don't believe me.

Happy Wednesday!

the breakdown:
feather earrings: forever21
gingham top: jcrew outlet
maxi dress: jcrew sale
on the mark necklace: gift from marcus
leopard loafers: c/o wanted

Pin It!

    Love how the colors of the outfit are also in the background of the third picture! nice!

    Love the color combination you have going here! 


  2. Love that outfit! And yes, prego clothes are thee best ever!(:

  3. I really like this outfit...it looks effortless.  I've been meaning to try the shirt over the maxi dress.  Wish I had thought of that when I was preggo.  :)

  4. I really like this combo, and never would have gotten preggo from the look on you.  I do have to admit I breathed a little sigh of relief. I thought you were about to announce your own pregnancy and I was worried that soon I would have no  non-pregnant blogger models to inspire me. I think there's something in the water right now. 

  5. you are adorable, and i love the background in these photos.

    So funny and so true. Often I have to announce as soon as I see someone, before the questions come flying, "I'm NOT pregnant, this is just a flowy shirt!".

  8. Ashley, I LOVE this outfit. Love, love. I'm pinning it now. :) 

  9. Those loafers are so so cute! Want a pair so badly. Great outfit :)


  10. Haha! You had me going there for a second.  I was sure you were going to tell us that you were pregnant.  Pregnant or not, I love this outfit.  In fact, I'm pinning it for future style inspiration :)

  11. those are some really great colors on you.

    and thanks for the little tease!

  12. I love to dress like a pregnant lady! The comfort is amazing! Love the colors in this outfit.

  13. i have certain dresses in my closet that i refuse to get rid of because they are so darn pregnant-worthy.  they'll come in handy one day.

  14. Love your outfit!  I don't think it looks like a maternity outfit at all.


  15. You got me all excited haha. You look great, as always!

  16. Love this outfit! It is so gorgeous!
