Louis Vuitton Neverfull, Maxi Dresses at 38 Weeks Pregnant

While baby has arrived, I've got a few more pregnancy outfits scheduled to share on the blog. Being behind with blogging has worked out well, I still have posts to share while I'm spending the majority of the newborn days in my PJs!


First up, although it's April I won't be doing a budget post wrap up. I didn't buy any new clothes or accessories in March, instead shopping for a few things for baby.

Since I didn't buy anything, I won't be sharing my purchases and just doing a my regular post with what I've been wearing. I tried to schedule as much as possible at the beginning of my maternity leave, so I had a busy couple of days of appointments and running errands. My Louis Vuitton Neverfull was a great bag to just throw everything in, and maxi dresses were easy fuss-free outfits.

What I wore: 

Away From Blue | 38 weeks pregnant Mothers En Vogue Havana maxi dress LV neverfull

DressMEV Havana maxi dress C/O Zibibo
Belt: Kmart thin gold glitter belt
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus beaded neon and gold and black and gold bracelet set
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

I may have been a little over enthusiastic with fitting everything in on this day! I had scheduled 4 appointments and spent the morning rushing around between them. Wanted something easy and simple to wear so a maxi dress was my first choice - instant outfit, no further thought needed. At 38 weeks pregnant I can't help but wonder if the next time I'll be wearing this dress I'll be picking it as it allows for easy breastfeeding.


Last worn: glitter belt, MEV maternity maxi dress, gold Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull.

DressJeanswest 'Elodie' tie dye grey jersey maxi dress
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
Bracelets: the usual plus turquoise and silver beaded bracelet set
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Unlike the outfit above, this dress wasn't my first choice for this day. I'd planned to wear my maternity denim shorts but rain got to the washing outside before I could and my shorts were too wet to wear that morning. Again I picked a maxi dress for simplicity.

It was nice to be a little dressed up for dinner with my parents at least, and this dress is great to wear, even if not what I had planned. I've used the Louis Vuitton Neverfull as a baby bag before, but this time I tried it out with just the bare essentials and it was much more comfortable.

I'm trying to go out now and then with just a little pouch inside my handbag with everything toddler T needs, instead of carrying the baby bag as well as my handbag. While a newborn will mean I'll definitely need to carry the baby bag around with me, limiting what I carry will be helpful with needing to take things for a newborn and a toddler. I'm terrible at over-packing and carrying more than I need!


Last worn: tie dye maxi dress, black Havaianas, Louis Vuitton Neverfull (above).

    1. It is strange not having such a big bump and not feeling the kicks and punches for sure, but nothing compares to holding that baby :)

  8. There is something special about the colors on the firs picture - you look lovely :)
    Glad the outfit "backlog" worked your way - also it was a great idea to not shop in March. I was quite good in March too! Only 52 bucks spent.

  9. I love both of these dresses, especially the pink--it's such a gorgeous color! I'm guilty of over-packing too. I'll be curious to hear how you make it work with toddler AND baby stuff (and your stuff of course) in your bag!

  10. Originally I thought I wanted to ad a ton of maxi's to my wardrobe for the late Spring and Summer months. However, I've been trying lots on and haven't purchased a single one! Now I'm on a no buy, so hopefully this month long break will get me back in the groove for May and I'll find something super cute. I'm weird with fabrics though and so many cling to me. What's a good fabric to look for in a maxi?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's hard to find a non-clingy one for sure! I love jersey ones, but it's got to be the right kind of weight to the fabric so it skims rather than clings. Trying them on helps, hopefully you'll find some perfect ones! :)

  11. Congratulations Mica! I'm so excited for you now that the baby's here :) And that magenta dress is honestly stunning on you!

  27. I'm not allowed bags like the Neverfull any more because I really do test the theory and that's not good... However, that bag does seem like the perfect neutral-with-interest, goes with almost everything! And yay for pj time :)
