Baby Bump Blues
Cobalt is having a major moment in summer fashion, from handbags to beaded tribal jewels. Although I never usually shy away from bold color, in the last trimester of pregnancy I would typically stick to a basic black sheath for formal affairs, while tying in vibrant and/or sparkly accessories. However, I saw this beautiful blue dress and I just couldn't resist trying it on. Luckily, it happened to fit the bump nicely and the beaded embellishment at the top draws the eye up to keep the focus on the face rather than the preggo bod. Of course we happen to have 4 weddings and a couple of additional fancy events that all fall in my 8th and 9th month of pregnancy (a fashion nightmare), so I was so relieved to find another fun cocktail dress to add into the mix. I am down to one pair of stilettos that I can stand to keep on for more than 5 minutes at a time. Thank goodness they worked with this dress! No wedding look would be complete without some glitz, so I busted out the Edie Parker "Lizzy" clutch and jeweled up in Erickson Beamon baubles. I just had to push the accessories boundaries and have a matchy-matchy moment with the cobalt rose ring. This is a "blue period" that is ironically quite joyful.
