The Tabitha Necklace + Bell Sleeve Dress

This look is a much more feminine/romantic outfit than I usually reach for, but I love the way it all came together. This navy blue bell sleeve dress is not only bump-friendly, but also has hidden zippers for breastfeeding (amen!). The white beads on the Tabitha Necklace really pop against the dark dress, and I kept the rest fairly mellow with brown-hued accessories (including my gorgeous new drum bag). 

After considering buying some kind of basket-like bag all summer, 31 Bits came out with this one and knew I wanted to get it and support their amazing business. It’s just the right size for my essentials: phone, credit cards, lip balm, mints, and a little Matchbox car for Jack to play with when I’m on the go! Sadly it’s backordered for a few weeks, but I’d say it’s worth the wait if you’re in the market for something similar and are interested in supporting an ethical fashion brand.

I love that I can wear this dress now while I’m pregnant (27 weeks this week), as well as during the holiday season when I’ll be nursing a baby and in need of some presentable clothing. For those of you not expecting right now, I’ve linked to some non-maternity bell sleeve dresses below as well!
