Happy Thursday, friends! It finally feels like spring in Ohio after 34 months of winter. Seriously, I didn’t think it was ever going to get warm and stay warm. Brad and I have been super busy getting our house in order, inside and outside, while soaking up all of the sunshine we can get. This year I went a little flower crazy and planted 9 pots of flowers, a rose bush, two evergreen shrubs, and a hydrangea tree which we named Groot. Any Guardians of the Galaxy fans? Today I thought it’d be fun to share a super easy and affordable outfit that I’ve been living in. This has been my go-to spring maternity outfit and I have a feeing I’ll be doing a variation of it this summer. Not only is it stylish but it’s comfortable and I’m sure all of your have some kind of variation of this outfit in your closet, even if you aren’t expecting.

My Go-To Spring Maternity Outfit
Picking the Dress
To start, find the perfect dress for your body and your comfort. Everyone has different body shapes and comfort levels, so your dress can be fitted, fit and flare, a-line, shift, etc. Next, determine your sleeve length. For me, since I’m feeling huge at 7 months pregnant, I selected a fitted tank dress. Seriously, if I don’t have something fitted on my body, I feel like an absolute whale and the dress makes me look 10x bigger than what I really am.
If you live in a warmer part of the country, you might be able to skip this step. Adding a layering piece is the next step to perfecting this outfit. Ohio weather can be so touchy, hot one minute to chilly the next, so I never leave the house without some sort of sweater or jacket. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with cardigans. I love that a cardigan just adds to this causal look.
Completing the look
When it comes to picking out shoes you can go in many different directions. If you are wanting a super casual look, pairing the outfit with a pair of sneakers is a great option. Sandals are a good option if you want to make the outfit look springy. Wedges will make this look dressy. I have been opting for sandals lately since my feet are super swollen and I can’t fit in my sneakers. If I was shorter, I’d definitely pick wedges to dress up this casual look.
Lastly, you can accessorize this look with whatever makes you feel good and that pairs with the look you are going for. Statement earrings and a straw purse go perfectly with wedges. While fun stud earrings and a cross body purse will complete a causal look.
