Atmos&Here Wrap Dresses and Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote

In the third trimester of my last pregnancy I snapped up a wrap dress by Atmos & Here in the boxing day sales. I loved the wrap dress style with a baby bump and it works just as well post-baby too. When I saw a similar style in a different print in a boxing day sale again, I had to buy it! A wrap dress is always a classic.
Wore the two dresses in similar ways with a Louis Vuitton neverfull bag to attend some specialist appointments for baby boy.

What I wore:

Atmos&Here Arlette jersey wrap dress, louis vuitton MM neverful damier azure | AwayFromBlue
SunglassesRay-Ban new Wayfarers
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
DressAtmos&Here Arlette jersey wrap dress (new purchase, on sale!)
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This wrap dress was just $26 (now reduced even further to just $21!), so I snapped it up in the December boxing day sales. Even though the thicker fabric and long sleeves aren't ideal for a Queensland summer... I regretted choosing to wear this dress on such a hot day! Didn't hit my goal of wearing this dress twice in a month after buying I like I aim to do with all my purchases. The summer heatwaves have made wearing it an unattractive choice and they seem set to stay a little longer.

I am trying to wear more of my dresses as I've realised I've been favouring denim outfits during my maternity leave. To try and make this dress a little more casual I wore my Havaianas with it but I think any other shoe would have looked better, I felt they looked strange with the dress. Just a little too casual with it.


Other than the less than perfect shoe choice and feeling too warm in the dress, I actually enjoyed wearing this. It helped that we got good news at Baby Boy's appointment. Made me so happy.


Last worn: Ray-Ban Wayfarer, Havaianas, Louis Vuitton neverfull. First time I've worn the wrap dress as it's a recent purchase.

Other ways to wear: Louis Vuitton neverfull and a maxi skirt.

ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush (on sale!)
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

Another specialist appointment, another wrap dress! While this watercolour print and colours in the dress are different from the black and white zig zag print on the wrap dress above, I think the Louis Vuitton Neverfull still goes nicely with it. I've mentioned before I see this bag as quite simple to wear, almost seeing the checkerboard print as a neutral.

I liked the sandals better with this dress instead of Havaianas, and this was again a nice easy outfit to wear for a morning in the city after our appointment.


Hopefully I'll get more wear out of these wrap dresses over my maternity leave. While they are perfect for the office I think a wrap dress is a classic style you can wear casually too. They are breastfeeding friendly, so I just need to get over my hang-up that makes me think they are too 'dressy' to be worn for SAHM life and wear something other than denim for a change.

  4. I learned to love wrap dresses throughout my pregnancy as well and I continue to wear them right now, at the office and at home. The one downside now that I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight is that after brastfeeding two kids they look a little empty in the boob department.

  5. Love both of these! And I know what you mean, sometimes it's easy to fall into a rut. Lately it's been all jeans and sweaters for me when I could be wearing blazers and other things too, haha

  20. I don't own a wrap dress, but this makes me want one! Loveee the pattern on that second dress, and I need a bag like this. It's hard for me to convince myself to wear anything other than leggings or denim when I don't have to go into work, so I can imagine the struggle!

  31. I'm going through this "none of my clothing fits" issue at the current moment. lol I swear every single day it seems to be getting worse and worse. I saved a lot of clothing from my first pregnancy, but of course, the time of year is opposite and now it's been a struggle! I have a few orders coming plus I might hit up our local resale shop this weekend and see if I can find any deals. (; Wrap dressing are something I have been thinking about more and more lately. Mostly because I feel like I will feel confident in them this summer in addition to the nice stretch they provide!
