WIW 1/31 & 2/1: It's a wrap!

I wore two wrap dresses the last couple of days. Even though these aren't maternity, the wrap style is very flattering for pregnancy and I've been able to still fit into these (though they've become a bit shorter now because of the big bump). The Maggy London I bought right when I became pregnant, but the Banana republic is at least 10-15 years old and still going strong! I plan to still get plenty of wear out of these post-partum as well.

1. Maggy London black and white wrap dress
WHBM black pendant
Michael Kors black studded satchel
Gap maternity black tank
H&M black tights
Frye Melissa black lace-up boots

2-4. I really like the matchy matchy chain/ribbon details in the dress, necklace and shoes! I went with the more structured and plain RL black satchel instead of my new studded satchel so as not to take attention away from the ribbon theme.
Banana Republic black ribbon wrap dress
Gap maternity black tank
Banana Republic gold chain necklace
Ralph Lauren black doctor satchel (TJ Maxx)
Clark brown pumps (also 10-15 yr old)

And because it's fun to show my dresses with the bump progression:
5. Non-pregnant
6-7. First trimester
8-9. Second trimester
10. Third trimester

Thanks for looking!

    Your maternity style is inspirational by about a billion percent.

    Natalie, you look so good (and I can't believe that one dress is so, ummm, mature)! I'm glad that one survived the cull. I heartily agree with Angie about your maternity style. At a time when I would try to hide and disappear, you've bloomed and become better than ever. Seriously, you should always be pregnant. It really looks good on you! ;)

    In agreement with Angie too, you look awesome. LOVE those lace up boots with the dresses.

    What CC said. You have amazing maternity style!

    Just want to echo what the others have said.. you look amazing; a style inspiration for maternity wear.

    Wrap dresses are awesome! Your bump looks so fab! And I love how there's a dump truck on the floor too....hehe!

  • jerseyjan replied 6 years ago

    Yes! You are stunning!!

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    You are so amazing! LOVE how you can do this with your dresses. Super fab looks at any stage!

  • Zapotee replied 6 years ago

    You are the cutest preggo Mama, I swear. I do adore that BR wrap. I do have a floral one by BGBG from around that same time period that I still wear. So fab!

    I do like the combo with the lace up boots, a lot.

    That is so cool to see the progression! You look beautiful. More proof that wrap dresses were engineered by aliens from the future and sent back to us in a time travel machine. Wrap dresses are genius.

    Wow...wow....I wish I could go back and be inspired by you when I was preggers!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 6 years ago

    Fantastic dresses on you Natalie! I love that Maggy London on you (of course, I'm completely biased - lol!).

    You look so healthy and radiant - how are you feeling these days?

  • Kiwichik replied 6 years ago

    You rock the wrap dress.

  • shevia replied 6 years ago

    Honestly you wear pregnancy better than anyone I can think of - amazing outfits!

  • Thistle replied 6 years ago

    You are the most amazing maternity dresser ever. You look amazing!

  • Jewell replied 6 years ago

    You are one fab mom-to-be! Such incredible style!

  • goldenpig replied 6 years ago

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad the wrap dresses have been so versatile!

    Shannon, I feel OK but it definitely takes me more time to get from place to place--I have to factor in the additional "waddle" time, LOL! I am just hoping to make it to 39 weeks because I have three more weeks of work, including a week on call at the hospital. I've been so busy at work I haven't had time to pack the delivery bag or set up the crib etc...I need to get on the ball.
