If there’s one thing I’ve learned this pregnancy it’s that a maxi dress is your best friend. I’ve always worn them but never have I appreciated them as much as I have these past couple of months. Besides being the comfiest thing to wear in between sizes, they’re SO versatile and great for post baby as well. This one from meet mark has been sitting in my closet forever because it was too big but now it’s a real life saver. I LOVE the blue and its lace cap sleeves. I’ve worn it a ton of times in so many different ways for day and night. For day I wear it with my green anorak, chain link necklace and my one of my favorite lucky brand bag (which comes in handy to when switching out heels for flats when your feet can’t take it anymore). For night, I just added a sparkly necklace, metallic satchel and took off the jacket.
What I’m Wearing: Blue Maxi Dress c/o
Eva Longoria’s outfit is just plain old blah! The pattern on the dress overwhelms her petite frame and the blue tote only adds to the confusion. For the redo, simplicity was the key: I kept Eva in blue and used the bag and necklace to kick it up a notch. What do you think of Eva’s look?

Rihanna looking chic and comfy in a maxi dress and denim jacket. I decided to swap out the denim jacket with a cropped one to give it a more enlongated look. Get Rihanna’s look for less!
Nicole Richie making a grand entrance at Kitson to promote her jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960. The newly pregnant Nicole looks absolutely stunning in this long, white maxi dress. Although I love her breezy and care-free look, I just don’t think the cut is realistic (nor flattering) for the everyday gal. The jewelry from her Harlow line clearly reflects her style (which I’m a fan of) but it’s a bit on the pricey side, so I switched that out as well.
A bit pricier than my usual Copycat post but I really liked Jennifer Aniston’s look and I think it’s a style that will be around for a while (especially in the color gray). I don’t usually make a habit of buying dresses at this price online, but a J.Crew maxi dress ( or a long A Lined Hem as they describe it) is a hard one to pass up!
