For this pregnancy, I discovered PinkBlush maternity, a trendy online boutique, and found so many cute dresses and tops that I could wear to both work and for every day weekend wear. They have a huge selection of ridiculously cute clothes in both normal and maternity sizes. Their prices are also very reasonable (much more reasonable than mall-based maternity stores).
Because I travel to see clients for my job, I needed to have at least 3 dresses or outfits I can wear to client meetings throughout my pregnancy. I started to show a lot faster with this pregnancy, so I had shop for maternity clothes really early on!
I purchased two black dresses first. I was panicking because I had a wedding to attend at 5 months pregnant, and there was no way I was fitting into any of my normal dresses. I purchased the Solid Scalloped Hem Maternity dress in black and received so many compliments! It’s hard to tell from the picture (below), but the sleeves and bottom trim have scalloped edges. Since the dress was pretty plain I paired it with a big, chunky necklace, black peep toe shoes, and called it a day! This dress comes in 12 different covers. If I didn’t only have 5 weeks left I would totally buy it in another color.
The second dress I purchased was a Black Solid Cutout Shoulder dress I was going to wear for client meetings. I have a client in Florida so even in the coldest Michigan winters, I have to have warm weather work clothes. Since it’s solid black, I wore light blue shoes for a pop of color, but this dress would also look cute with solid black heels. For traveling back to Michigan, I wore a jean jacket over it that dressed it down a bit. This dress has a semi sheer layer underneath, so I didn’t have to worry about this dress being see-thru, and it packed really well (pretty much wrinkle free!).
I also wanted to get a top I could dress up for church or pair with jeans for a fun dinner date. I found the below Navy Lace Up Cold Shoulder top at PinkBlush and thought I’d give it a try since ‘cold shoulder’ tops are all the rage. I was a little skeptical at how it would fit since it was flowy. I’m always afraid of looking like I’m wearing a tent with maternity clothes, but it’s actually extremely flattering. I loved the purple color (description says Navy, but it’s very purple) and the lace up front. I paired it with skinny jeans and heels for Mother’s Day.
With all of the items I’ve purchased and worn from PinkBlush, I’ve been extremely satisfied with the quality of the items. They also shipped fairly quickly! I’ll definitely be purchasing a few more items from PinkBlush, including nursing-friendly clothes, and maybe a casual summer dress or two.
