I’m going to a wedding at the end of July. In my current state, that meant only one thing – shopping! It’s been ages and ages since I bought a new dress so I was quite excited by this prospect.
However, after trudging around the high street several times, it was evident to me that I wasn’t going to find anything suitable to wear to a wedding there. It’s like they think pregnant ladies don’t get invited to parties.
But then the ASOS sale popped onto my radar and so I placed a big order, determined to find the perfect party dress. And I was not disappointed – I found it! It was one of those wonderful, but rare, shopping moments when you slip something on and just go ‘yep. This is it. I’ve found the one.’
I haven’t included my chosen dress in this round-up as I thought I’d save that for the actual wedding in a few week’s time but I have included some of my other favourites.
(My bump must have gotten sizeably bigger recently as people who see me quite often have stopped me as soon as they’ve seen me and said ‘Ohmigod you’re massive!’ – I’m 24 weeks in these photos)
ASOS maternity midi dress with pleated skirt – £35 / Shoes – Christian Louboutin
I ordered this one because it reminded me of Kate Middleton but I think it’s going to be a bit hot for long sleeves in July.
ASOS maternity maxi dress in vintage floral print – £33.50 / Shoes – Primark
I really liked this dress and so did Nick but it’s just way too gapey at the chest for me. Unfortunately my pregnancy hasn’t done me much good in that area yet! This dress was also good because it was only double-layered up to my knees so wouldn’t have been as hot as a regular maxi dress.
ASOS maternity maxi dress with grecian drape – £45 / Shoes – Primark
This is another one that I loved but was too gapey at the chest. I suppose I could have pinned it but it’s just not the same.
ASOS maternity midi dress with embellishment – £19 / Shoes – Christian Louboutin
This one was my favourite one in the online photos and it fitted me really well but in the pictures that Nick took of me from the front I just looked super dumpy even with high heels on. I do really like this dress though and for £19 it’s such a bargain!
ASOS maternity midi dress with embellishment – £60
They didn’t have this dress online when I placed my order so it must be brand new but I would have loved to have given this a go! It’s so pretty!
And now here’s just some extra pictures of the beach because, well, why not?
