28 weeks has arrived and so has 114 degree weather. Oh my gosh it's so flippin' hot here! I wish I didn't even have to get dressed right now because the struggle is REAL my friends. Forget wearing jeans in this heat with a giant elastic band that goes over your stomach...No, thank you! I'll stick to light-weight, soft, cotton maxi dresses thank you very much.
This white and black striped dress from ZARA is perfect for the summer. It's machine washable, and the low back is just low enough to add some style, but not too low that I can't wear a bra. You do have to wear a nude slip with it, but other than that it's easy, breezy. It's not maternity either, so I love that I will be able to wear this dress post baby, and not look crazy.
Side note, I have realized that there are some fairly uncomfortable things about third trimester that every woman should know:
1. You will develop a waddle. Forget being able to walk with one foot in front of the other.
2. Your belly can touch your legs when you sit down.
3. Your boobs can touch your stomach depending on their size.
4. You breathe heavier.
So much has to get done before this little guy is here, but man, I'm starting to feel ready to get back to my normal body. I just need to focus on the really cool thing about this trimester, which is that I can really feel him move more than ever.
