Floral Maxi Dress

Shop My Outfit:

I’ve linked maternity and similar maternity versions of this dress 

Happy Thursday! I shared my spring/summer wardrobe essentials on my last blog post. As always, floral is a must for these seasons. I wanted to share this floral maternity maxi dress that I got for Christmas. I finally got a chance to wear it several weeks ago before things got crazy. When I took these photos it was very windy and reminded me of Oklahoma. I definitely don’t miss the Oklahoma wind down here in Birmingham.

Bloopers from the wind

I love this dress because it has both blue and pink. I’ve been wearing a lot of pink since I found out I was expecting a girl. The blue is a great change for me. This would be perfect for a gender reveal party, since it has both gender colors in it. This dress is made to really emphasize the bump with it being empire waist. Besides my bodycon dresses, I felt like this really showed the bump off. I also love that it’s nursing friendly, so it will work for after Scarlett is here. This might be what I wear for Easter, since it’s very comfortable. We’re planning to watch an online church service and I will be cooking ham and deviled eggs. I’m still trying to decided what else to make. Although we cannot celebrate like we normally would, I still want to make it a special celebration.

I finally left the house for a doctor’s appointment on Monday. It was the first time I’ve been out in public for at least 3 weeks. It felt eerie being out in public. The hospital where my appointment was had you go through a checkpoint to take your temperature and ask if you’re having Covid-19 symptoms. Almost everyone had masks on too, which is important since the CDC has decided that the public should wear cloth masks (after they initially made a bad decision by saying they didn’t recommend it).

How is everyone doing? I know it’s a really uncertain time, but we will get through this.

    I am sure you don’t miss the wind of Oklahoma Courtney! This dress really does emphasize the baby bump. I do like the blue on you with the pink flowers. It would definitely be a great gender reveal dress! We are going to have a low-key Easter as well. We will watch our church Easter celebrations online. I’m sure it did feel strange for you going out in public again I have been out myself a few times. You know you are right with the positive attitude we will get through this! Happy Thursday, Terri xo

    You look fabulous, Courtney! I love your blooper photo too – you’re still darling even with the wind! So glad to hear your appointment went well and your hospital is taking the necessary precautions. I went to the grocery store today for the first time in a 1 1/2 weeks and that was a big outing, haha. I was glad to see how many people were respecting the 6 feet rule and wearing masks as well.

      You are so sweet, Lindsey! Yes, it was so scary being out in public, but glad they’re screening people. I am so glad to hear that people were respecting the 6 feet rule when you were out too. Stay safe 🙂
