Anything but basic

The black maxi dress.

With this pregnancy I find myself reaching for easy to wear, needs no ironing, can withstand a messy toddler, kind of clothes. If there’s one such item in my closet it has got to be this sleeveless maxi dress I bought during my first pregnancy. It’s not designed as maternity wear but because of the stretchy fabric and cut, it literally grows with you during pregnancy. Plus I bought it in a size bigger than I was at the time. I’ve mostly worn it with loose cardigans but it looks just as good with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. Add the right accessories and this dress goes from casual to evening ready.
