This Summer, comfort has been key. Between COVID and my pregnancy,  I’ve had little motivation to get very dressed up or put on a fussy outfit. Enter the most amazing dress from H&M. I’ve absolutely LIVED in it this Summer, and gotten the most compliments. With a wide shape and black hue, I throw it on (admittedly braless) to comfortably beat the heat. Would you believe I bought this dress before I even knew I was pregnant? So it’s bump-friendly, or just easy and breezy no matter your shape. The best part – it’s currently on sale! While it might be sold out online, I’m told you can still find it in-stores. Believe me…this one is worth it!

Dress: H&M. Hat: Eric Javits.

H&M has been serving up the fire looks lately. I love that they offer such stylish pieces at affordable prices. Many times, the items look far more expensive than you would expect. Case in point this recent jacket that I found at my local store. I loved the faux tweed texture, the oversized gold buttons, and the longer length. It’s so easy to throw on with a short dress or even jeans and a t-shirt. In my case, I threw on the extra layer over wide-leg Zara trousers and a black bodysuit. It was an easy and comfortable option for a breezy day where I didn’t want bare shoulders.  I tend to gravitate towards cream jackets (my cream blazer collection is overwhelming), but I also love the black. I think it will be a great transitioning piece to Fall! I completed my look with some high-end accessories including new Tom Ford sunglasses (found in the men’s section at Saks) and my trusty Goyard bag. Shop the look below!

Think Pink

So far, switching to pregnancy-friendly items has been easy for me. I tend to gravitate towards empire waists, flowy silhouettes and loose-fitting garments for the most part, so not much has changed. I’m sure I will need to get some maternity-wear as I get bigger, but I’m enjoying playing in my current closet at the moment. One of the dresses that I’ve been really excited about is this longer-midi number from Zara. The combination of the super thin straps and a particular shade of pink feel extra girly and perfect for Summer. I also love a poplin dress that is light and airy for the South’s intense heat. I paired the dress with another great find from Zara – my favorite gold sandals that are also on sale. They’re a buy that can’t be beaten!
