Weekly Obsessions: Maxi Dresses

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
Now that the cat is out of the bag (I'm pregnant!), let's get down to the fun stuff, maternity attire. I swear I was planning my maternity wardrobe before before I even got that BFP (big fat positive). I've always observed how pregnant women dress and I just love the look of a pregnant woman in a dress showing off the bump. I think maxi dresses are going to be my BFF all summer because I don't plan on spending a ton of money on maternity clothes so I figure I'll stock up on some maxis that I can wear all summer pregnant and non pregnant too.

J. Crew Factory Knit Racerback Maxi Dress
I've been eyeing this dress for awhile and think I might snatch it up now that it's on sale for $44. I can't decide if I like the blue or black better. Only downfall is racerbacks are never my friend but the straps on this dress are pretty big so I think I could hide my bra pretty well.



Socialite Stripe Knit Maxi Dress
I have a serious love affair with stripes that is growing now that I'm pregnant. I love stripes on a pregnant woman and I think this dress would be perfect. 




This looks like the perfect summer maxi and even better for a growing belly. Definitely looks like you have to wear a slip underneath it though.




This dress is such a gorgeous blue color and the twist back is very different, I really like it. It looks so comfy like you're wearing pajamas.




I kind of forgot about F21 for a while there. Yes there stuff is cheaply priced but it's also cheaply made and I kind of wanted to stay away from that. I think I may need to make a trip downtown and check out some of their dresses because everything I see online is so cute. This dress is only $15 and I think it looks way more expensive than that.

  1. Love all of these maxis!! I think the only thing I'd be worried about with the striped one is the elastic at the waist. I've obviously never been pregnant before but I feel like that could get annoying but maybe not!

  2. I loved maxis and cardigans with Ss! I got a lot from Target both maternity and non because they weren't an investment you know?

  4. I definitely lived in maxis when I was pregnant, I got some great deals from Target and Old Navy online, in fact, some of my maternity clothes I still wear (they weren't maternity from Target, they were juniors - http://www.target.com/p/kimono-maxi-dress-mossimo-supply-co/-/A-16592038#item-guestreviews-link). And I love them even now, 15 months after giving birth.

  7. Maxi dresses are the best! I love wearing them in the summer time. Their only flaw is that sometimes they are too short for my tall frame. I really like it when they hang just above the ground. Let me know if you find any longer versions!

  10. That's so funny you've been planning your pregnancy attire all along, I'm the exact same way! I've even kept a couple things in my closet while cleaning it out with the thought that "maybe one day I'd want to wear this when I'm pregnant.." I think I need that striped maxi needs to be mine either way though!

  14. These are all so cute and will definitely be comfortable! F21 has so many cute dresses right now though I've had bad luck with them shrinking like 3+ inches in length and being waaay too short- washing them in cold water with no dryer- so that's one thing I would also keep in mind when it comes to their quality!

  17. Loving that striped maxi! And I feel the same way about Forever 21 but that may be the perfect place to buy maternity stuff because who cares if you stretch it out and never wear it again - at least you spent barely any money on it!
