olive palm dress

Another one of my favorites from the Karina Dresses spring collection. Now that I am expecting our baby, my changing body and ever growing bump has higher expectations when it comes to dressing comfortably and stylish. The Megan design is one of my favorites in the Karina series (right after the Ruby). This dress pairs wonderfully with vintage jewelry and you can wear it for a dinner out or for work paired with a blazer or a comfortable cardigan. It comes in several print and color combinations and just like all other Karina dresses, it is absolutely zero maintenance. The fabric is very stretchy and it doesn’t wrinkle at all.

The cut is just so utterly feminine and the faux wrap design truly accentuates your shape beautifully, whether your curvy or on the skinny side. The top portion wraps on your chest nicely and the dress sits in place and looks flattering even when your breasts double in size. The Megan and the Ruby are  wonderful options for expecting mommies (or when you are breastfeeding). I feel comfortable, confident and ladylike.

It’s amazing how beautiful the Karina dresses look on your body whether you are your “ideal” weight, 5 months pregnant or in postpartum. I have several dresses from Karina and the very first one I got over a year ago fits me beautifully today. Talk about truly versatile and gorgeously designed dresses.

    The print of your dress is lovely. I agree it can be difficult to find clothes during pregnancy. It continues to be difficult afterwards especially if you breast feed. You look fantastic.

    Congrats on your baby! I had no idea. Is this your first? This dress looks like it will be comfortable for your growing bump. I would not worry. Having had 3 kids and 4 pregnancies, I know what you mean. It looks great on you and doesn’t even show your bump. I had to read to find out…lol.
