Dressing the Bump at Catch Me at Luxe



I’ve now ventured into the uncharted territory that is my third trimester of pregnancy and I see now why it becomes increasingly difficult every morning to get dressed when you have a large basketball situation happening. I had the absolute pleasure to participate in the Catch Me at Luxe Shoot Out at the Graduate Tempe with a bunch of great bloggers and photographers, so planning 4 outfits that made me feel confident while pregnant was a treat. I wanted to have a variety of options to show off the bump.

First Outfit 











I haven’t worn overalls since I went to a nerd party a few years ago and un-ironically the last time I wore them was probably in middle school. I saw being pregnant as an opportunity to bust them out. I definitely didn’t want to spend a lot because I knew they wouldn’t be a frequent occurrence postpartum. I styled them up with an off the shoulder striped shirt, cute crossbody, and blush wedges.

Second Outfit








When I saw this dress on Pink Blush, I knew I had to have it. I loved the vertical stripes. (Give me all the stripes while pregnant, please.) My favorite part was the cold shoulder situation with the ruffles. It’s so sweet and feminine. I decided to wear the denim jacket mostly so I could match with my mini one. I can’t wait to use those photos in her nursery! This dress is definitely going to be on repeat for the rest of the summer because it’s so light and airy.

Third Outfit

This dress was a last minute decision, as in the night before when I raided my mom’s closet and saw this pretty hanging on her door tags still on. There’s not much I can wear of hers presently, but it’s just flowy enough. I love the way it hugs my bump and wearing a bralette underneath is perfect. It’s going to be one of those dresses I can wear after pregnancy too which is solid of course.

Fourth Outfit









This was just a simple t-shirt and jeans look with Vans. I get to promote my new project at work, Moms in Real Estate through the adorable apparel I’ve designed with the logo. If you see me most days, I’m in maternity jeans/leggings and a t-shirt. It’s just the easiest situation that causes me the least grief. (Minus tying my shoes, that’s very much a pain.)

I had the best time with these photographers. Being a blogger for so many years doesn’t suddenly make you super comfortable being the “model” for someone. Maybe for some, it’s effortless, but not me at all. These lovely ladies made me feel so great and comfortable even in 90 degrees as a pregnant person. I’m so glad I’ll have these to remember my time being pregnant with baby girl. So thank you to all of you for giving me the opportunity to rock the bump. Check out all of these amazing photographers from the photos in the post as well the other bloggers and vendors that participated in this great event.
