That Perfect Dress

Believe it or not but I have found the perfect dress that is going to take me to the very end of my pregnancy and it is maternity. Yes you heard it right – it is a maternity dress. And trust me never in a million years have I thought I’d say this. With most of my clothes no longer fitting and with fashion week around the corner (oh yeas I will be attending no matter what) I needed a game plan. I wanted to invest into a few pieces that would take me right through the end that are incredibly versatile and could be styled in many different ways. I also didn’t want to spend a whole lot on clothes that I would only need for such a short time. Not an easy task unless you want to compromise on quality which certainly isn’t what I’m after.

I planned a few go to outfits and with that in mind started my search for a perfect day to night, weekday to weekend, casual to dressy maternity dress. Oh and most importantly it has to be flattering.

I came across Pea in a Pod Maternity brand on Instagram (@peainapodmaternity ). As always I try to support Australian brands and Pea in a Pod is not only Australian owned but also Australian made which is a rarity these days. The styles are very modern and trendy as well very well priced. Fit and quality are great too. Over the years Pea in a Pod Maternity has been a choice of maternity wear for many local and international celebrities.

The Bailey dress is that perfect easy to wear and style dress that is a must have in a maternity wardrobe. If you follow me on Instagram (if not you absolutely have to follow me @amalia_karaeva) you would have seen this dress featured a couple of times already.

Duster coats are huge this autumn (it is autumn in the Southern hemisphere) and are perfect for pregnancy styling since they are light, flowy and will give a simple outfit a bit of a lift. With heels or thigh high boots it can be a killer evening look. With sneakers or flats perfect day time outfit.

Now if you aren’t pregnant same rules apply. Little body con long sleeve dress is perfect for this time of the year and flattering on any figure.
