Baby Shower: dress dilemma

by Ashley on April 11, 2011

My family is hosting a California baby shower for me and I’ve been struggling a bit with the “what to wear” question–as I’m sure everyone with a suddenly rotund belly does. I’m not finding many dresses to my liking. (Why do so many have bows over the belly? My parents called the new grandchild a gift, which worried me that they think we might be giving them the baby, so a bow could be confusing!)

So despite feeling some (self-inflicted) pressure to wear a dress, I’ve decided I should just follow my instincts and go with the separates direction. I spotted this Breton Stripe Boatneck on ASOS (which is an awesome source for maternity if you can figure out the sizing) and am basically planning to copy the whole ensemble.

I had to stop wearing my St. James tee in NY for a while–it was getting embarrassing when we’d be seated next to someone in an identical outfit (esp at the very close tables typical in Manhattan)–but I just can’t help myself! I love stripes!
