Striped Dress and Red Hunters

Striped dress and red Hunters is an outfit I have been patiently waiting to wear. Patiently waiting until my bump expanded enough to fill out the dress and the weather to dip cool enough I could justify pulling out these boots.

I bought this dress back when I was only 8 weeks along. It was a bit of a superstitious feat because apparently you shouldn’t buy maternity clothes until you are past the safe point and know you will even get to wear said maternity items.

I held onto it regardless and felt the fabric through my fingers on occasion when I remembered it was there, hanging in my closet, with all my other “regular” clothes. I even tried it on a few times to see how my bump was faring with the ruched siding and roomy front. Sadly, my bump wasn’t big enough to fit just yet.

Finally, once I reached 22 Weeks, my button popped, and over night this dress suddenly fit that bump like it was always meant to be.

I must say I do consider it slightly too short to actually be worn as a dress. Pairing it with leggings though helps me justify that it’s really just an extra long shirt made especially that way for keeping this little bun nice and warm.

These boots share a similar story, one where a serious bump is involved. I purchased these back before the weather cooled off because I knew I would dream of owning a pair once Fall settled in.

They are the epitome of the season and having a pair in the color red has been something I’ve coveted for over a year now. I could never justify giving into my desire to own them until the bump was officially coming and I knew it’d be in full throttle during the Fall and Winter months.

It was then that I decided I simply couldn’t resist them any longer. I believe that an item becomes a truly cherished piece when years pass and  it hasn’t been forgotten.

 Needless to say, I plan on wearing them as much as I possibly can.
