Making a Skirt Work

When I heard that Andi and Inge were co-hosting a skirt themed link-up I knew it'd be fun to join in but had an issue - I've had a pretty seriously skirt aversion during pregnancy. I've worn a maxi skirt a few times (not documented on the blog though) and had one skirt that earlier on I could just roll under my belly but that hasn't worked comfortably for awhile (and I don't think that was ever documented either!). 

Dresses have been my go-to though, so I decided to give the tried and true blogger gem of an idea to wear a dress as a skirt a try - and I loved it! The dress I just posted about was perfect for layering. The bonus is that it made me feel better about spending more money on another dress because I figured out a way to make it more versatile. The downside is that I'm pretty sure my days of any pull-over sweaters fitting over my belly are likely very limited. :)

  3. Oh this layering looks great! :)

    It's funny, I was the opposite in pregnancy - I loved my maxi skirts! I bought some nice soft, stretch elasticated waistband ones from target and they are still in heavy rotation now post-baby after being worn a lot during my pregnancy.

    Most important factor is comfort though, dresses are a great option for that :)

    1. I'm hoping I'm back to loving skirts after I recover from having the baby! I used to wear them constantly for work and had at least one maxi skirt that was a go-to item for me for a really long time!

  5. I'll say it again, this dress is perfect. It totally works as a skirt too. I love the colors together.

    1. Thanks Inge! It really makes me want to order it online in every color available, but with only about 6 more weeks to go I think I'll just constantly wear this one. :)
