out tonight

when: friday, jan. 20, 2012

what i wore:
earrings: gift
dress: soon maternity (gift card)
shoes: caparros via dsw

where: work party

when i found out i won the soon maternity gift card, i immediately knew i wanted to get a fancy dress for our company’s annual dinner/dance party. it’s one of the only times during the year that we get dressed up and go out…and i actually do something fun with my hair. so it’s kind of a big deal. :)

i really wanted a dress that would make me feel good about my body. it can be hard when you’re carrying 15 extra pounds (and counting…) to feel attractive. this dress turned out to be perfect! the black color was slimming, and it’s simple and really emphasizes the bump.

(it was a few inches longer than i wanted it to be, so i just hiked it up a bit. ha! you can’t really tell because there is ruching on the sides of the belly anyway.)

p.s. i love to dance, but it was awkward to do so with a belly. when eric and i slow-danced to “my girl,” we had to do more of a side-hug sway…oh the joys! :)
