AUDREY'S STYLE: Yellow Maxi Dress

 Hello lovelies! 
My maternity wardrobe has become increasingly limited. What can I say? The third trimester is threatening to make me desperate. Since I go out of the house a few times a week, when I go to Church on Sundays I have my one chance to dress up. Hence, the above outfit.
 This yellow maxi dress is among my favorite items. I usually wear it for special occasions, an opportunity I take advantage of to find different ways to style it. (Look out for this week's Throwback Thursday post for a summary of the different ways I have worn this maxi dress.) For a simple yet interesting maternity look, I wore it with a polka dot blouse (I can't comfortably wear a halter neck to Church so I usually wear a coat for cover-up) and added a slim belt which I promptly removed after Mass. I kept my accessories to a minimum to allow the maxi dress to stand out as a statement piece. So my accessories consisted of an oxblood handbag and red wedge sandals.
One of the things I am trying very hard to work on is to wear stylish, colorful clothes during my maternity period. I don't want to wear shapeless maternity clothes. So I spend a lot of time picking out suitable clothes. What I have discovered so far is that I can wear clothes that are a size or two larger than my pre-maternity size and still look good and feel comfortable.
 Everybody is talking about new year's resolutions which is a good thing considering the new lease of life a new year brings with it. I have come up with a list of things I want to work on these first 6 months of 2014 and among them is to make an effort to take create my signature style. I know what kinds of clothes and accessories I like but it will be nice to actually pay attention to who I am and what makes me comfortable and thus create a signature style. I will write more about this at a later date.
