Third Trimester Maternity Style – Dressed in Orange

Next up in my third trimester maternity style posts (check out last week’s post if you missed it), I’m dressing up for you! This hasn’t happened much lately. Like I’ve said before countless times, my standard uniform includes yoga pants and a long tank or maternity tee. That’s usually enough for the gym, errands, and wrangling a 2.5 year old.

Luckily ASOS came to the rescue. I knew since our anniversary was coming up, I would want something to wear that was cute, comfortable, and dressy all at the same time. Enter this dress. It’s honestly the perfect knee-length maternity dress with sleeves. I love the color selection it comes in (I’m kind of regretting not getting the orchid and blue colors), but I chose the orange because it was on sale and I wanted to branch out and get a color I don’t have much of. The scary thought of me resembling a pumpkin did cross my mind, but I actually think I made the right decision going with it!

Asos Orange Maternity Dress

Dress: ASOS (c/o) | Short Necklace: Groopdealz | Long Necklace: Kendra Scott | Bracelet: Ebay (I love a good J. Crew knockoff) | Clutch: Louis Vuitton (I have no idea which one this is, and I’m about 90% sure it’s a really good fake- got it as a gift. Hey, at least I’m being honest.) | Shoes: Steve Madden (very old) | Nail polish: OPI ‘Mod About You’ | Lip Color: Bite Beauty Luscious Creme Lipstick in ‘Retsina

I decided to pair it with some more layered necklaces, a chunky big bracelet, and a small clutch (it felt so freeing to carry a purse that small). The shoes are actually ones I have had for five years. I bought them for our rehearsal dinner. I haven’t been buying shoes lately because I’m scared my feet may grow or swell too much. Luckily they haven’t, but I don’t have the selection of shoes that I would really love, and I thought a nude pair of shoes would work best. Also, please excuse my white pasty legs. I was self-tanning a lot this summer but now I just hate even the thought of bending over.

Asos Orange Maternity Dress

I think the best thing about this dress is that it can be dressed up or dressed down. It would look great with a pair of leopard sandals and my trusty denim vest! It’s so comfy, and it’s the perfect length, even at 36 weeks pregnant. Many of my shorter dresses have become a little too short in the front due to the growing bump, but this one is perfect. Perfect for our anniversary dinner date! And Greg actually took these pictures for me willingly! Go Greg!!!!

5 Things I’ve Learned in 5 Years of Marriage

5 Things I've Learned in 5 Years of Marriage

Today is my five-year wedding anniversary with Greg. I cannot believe it’s already been five years, but at the same time, it feels like we’ve been together for a while. I think that’s always a good feeling! I’m so happy I get to spend my days with this guy. I am far from a perfect wife, and there are so many things I should work on. In celebration of our five years married, I put together this little list of…

Preggo Meg O. – 36 Weeks

Baby #2 - 36 Weeks

Hey hey! I know I usually do my pregnancy updates on Fridays, but tomorrow’s my five year anniversary with Greg, so I wanted to let that day be special for that reason. I’m at my 36 week doctor appointment today, anyway, so it seems fitting enough! This week’s selfie includes a non-maternity maxi dress here that has a waist in it. Not anymore. Waist? What waist? Also, here’s me 36 weeks with Kennedy. What do y’all think? This Past Week: I’ll…

Third Trimester Maternity Style – Casual Stripes

3rd Trimester Maternity Fashion - ASOS

Oh, lookie here! It’s something you’ve never really seen from me before. A legit fashion post (ha)! Okay, I’ll admit here that I am shooting these photos myself  with a tripod and a remote control outside along the back brick of our house. Mama’s gotta do this during nap time, and Greg is not exactly someone I’d describe as a gifted photographer. Anyway, ASOS graciously sent me some beautiful maternity clothes to get me through the last month or so of…

Date Night with P.F. Chang’s Summer Menu

Date Night at P.F. Chang's

Disclosure: Thank you P.F. Chang’s for sponsoring today’s discussion and for the tasty date night! It’s kind of embarrassing how long it’s been since Greg and I have had a night out sans kiddo. Long enough that I can’t even remember! After the longest few days of potty training, I was so emotionally burned out. Someone was definitely looking out for me because I was given the chance to head out to P.F. Chang’s to try their new summer menu items! It seriously…
