K Couture + Ukies Shoes

Custom Blush Dress c/o K Couture || Comfortable Heels c/o Ukies

First of all I want to give a shout out to both K Couture and Ukies for being ever so patient with me. I have had both of these items for a couple of months now and both companies have been so sweet and understanding about how busy I have been as of late. This wedding season was no joke and as far as work goes I had a lot on my plate as a photographer and took on one too many blog opportunities too!

Let's start out by talking about this gorgeous blush dress! I absolutely love the color of this dress and have the hardest time finding blush items at the store. Does anyone else or am I the only one? I originally wanted to wear this dress to my sister in laws wedding this upcoming month but didn't read that sizes run 1-2 sizes small. Definitely check out the size chart when ordering ladies! K Couture also made the waist line higher for me for my growing bump! These photos were taken 2 weeks ago when I was 33 weeks pregnant and I BARELY fit into this dress lol. I'm pretty positive if I tried putting it on now it wouldn't fit. I'm hoping that even with the higher waist line that I will be able to wear this postpartum because I love the length. sleeves, and everything about this dress so much. If you are in the market for bridesmaid dresses or gorgeous custom dresses for a special upcoming event, go check out K Couture!

I also want to take a minute to talk about these comfortable heels from Ukies ! I'm not one to purchase shoes that are uncomfortable or that I will need to change out of within an hour or two of wearing. I was a bit skeptical about these heels at first but trust me guys these are SO COMFORTABLE. My feet are a bit swollen now that I'm getting close to the end of my pregnancy so you will usually find me in flats or sandals when working several hours on my feet. However, I do wear these to church, weddings, and date nights and they are easy to walk in and I haven't had any problems with them. If you need comfortable shoes for work or fun go check out Ukies, they have a variety of cute shoes to choose from (;

Bump Style with Pink Blush Maternity Look #2

Striped Dress c/o Pink Blush Maternity

This is the last of my looks I took while away in Arizona last month visiting Fati! These dresses from Pink Blush Maternity are so comfortable! They can totally be worn post-pregnancy or even if you aren't pregnant. Pink Blush is definitely my go-to when it comes to all things maternity so if you are expecting or have a friend or family member you are shopping for that is expecting go check them out!

Bump Style with The Mint Julep Boutique

I'm so behind on my blog, I have photos from a month and a half ago I still need to post! I know I sound like a broken record when I say this but I really want to get in the habit of blogging 2-3 times a week before baby boy is born. I only have about a month to get in the habit and make that happen, ahhh! Wish me luck (;

These photos were taken at 28 weeks pregnant, back when I was in hot Arizona visiting Fati and her family! This dress is perfect for the hot Arizona heat since it's light weight and there's no need to add cardigans or slips to style it up to my modesty standards. However, I loved pairing it with this crochet cardigan and belt, I think it really added to the overall look (; This dress isn't technically maternity so it works whether you're pregnant or not!

For more cute maxi dresses and clothing go check out The Mint Julep Boutique! They are always running killer specials and have some of the cutest pieces I have seen available this summer.
