Polka Dots + Alterre Shoes

Megan Dress from Karina Dress || Mist Grey Mule + Marilyn in Sunshine from Alterre Shoes

How cute is Z in that first photo hiding inside my dress? When we went out and took these photos there was a cool breeze and he came running and hid in my dress.

I know I sound like a broken record when I say I'm back to blogging for good so I'm not going to jinx myself or promise anything this time. Since it is wedding season my blogging and personal work has definitely been on the back burner for weeks. Editing and working on my wedding clients work has been top priority as far as my work life goes.

I have a few looks I shot a couple weeks back that I'm excited to share with you guys throughout this week.

Let's talk about this polka dot beauty from Karina Dresses. I absolutely love Karina Dresses since their clothing works even for us pregnant ladies. There's enough stretch in the fabric around the mid-section (especially in the fit + flare style like this Megan dress). I got my usual size (S/M) and it fits like a charm. I definitely think I will be able to wear it throughout my second trimester but will most likely not wear it throughout my third depending on how big I get. I don't want to cause unnecessary stretching since I really want to wear this postpartum.

Another reason why I chose this particular style of dress is because the surplice v neckline! Perfect for easy nursing access without having to undo my dress all together (;

Oh and have you guys heard of Alterre Shoes? Alterre Shoes is this amazing new company that allows you to mix and match your shoes. You start off with with a lift (base of the shoe) and then you can choose interchangeable looks (straps)! How cool is that? Whenever I go on vacation or shoot multiple blog looks in a day I hate packing a bunch of different shoes. Having multiple looks from Alterre can easily resolve that issue and help me de-clutter a bit. Just ask my husband.. I own WAY to many pairs of shoes (;

I chose the Mist Grey Mule base since I figured it would go with most of my wardrobe and would be a bit more unique that just plain black. I also wanted a base that I could wear all year round and not just in the summer. For my first look I chose the Marilyn in Sunshine! I absolutely love a fun pop of yellow and can see myself wearing this combo often.

I'll be sharing look #2 with Alterre Shoes Thursday so stay tuned for that!
