Maternity Style | Week 32


I wasn’t sure how I would feel about wearing a sort of babydoll/tent dress while pregnant but… IT IS AWESOME!! Especially when it’s super soft and a beautifully made Dear Creatures dress. So dang comfortable!! When you’ve been deathly sick all week a pretty dress can make you feel a whole heck of a lot better. This week has been pretty terrible for us. We have all be sick. Rowan has been waking up like every hour through the night crying for the last week. It’s been like the worst combo ever… Pregnancy + sick kid (like 104 fever sick) + sick self and husband + teething + no sleep + no family around= the longest week ever. I can’t wait to make the trip home to Massachusetts this week for some r&r and some family time with our parents. I don’t know how you Momma’s with more than 1 kid do it. I am excited for this new little one to get here but the excitement doesn’t come without some nerves as well. This whole week I just kept thinking how would we be doing this if there was another baby around? I know you just adjust and it becomes second nature but sitting around waiting for the unknown makes me a little nervous.

p.s. this dress has pockets! AMAZING!


Dear Creatures Dress: c/o Modcloth
Maternity Tights: Destination Maternity
Vintage Boots: Thrifted
Earrings: Target

  1. I don’t know if that dress technically counts as a muumuu but you pull it off with aplomb! Sounds like a really tricky time in life. I’ve watched my cousins go from one to two babes and it is definitely an adjustment. Once you get over this bout of sickness hopefully you will have much more energy to face it though. All hail the tent dress!

  2. Adorable! And I’m sure you can wear this post-pregnancy as well – just throw on a belt, or if you’re like me and you like shapeless dresses, it’s already perfect on it’s on haha

  3. How I adore this… the dress is stunning and pairing it with those tights & boots is such a gorgeous look Jen, so perfectly autumnal. And… oh no, sorry to hear it’s been such a long week for you guys. Ack, but yay for a little r&r with your parents. Enjoy!! xo V

  4. You are so beautiful! Wow!

  7. that looks like perfection on you!

  8. You look amazing! And what a darling dress. So perfect for Fall.

  9. dang that’s a cute dress

  10. That dress is so cute! It looks super comfy 🙂

    Aww, I know how you feel. Before our second son was born, I didn’t know how we would do it! You just figure out what works for you as you go along. With two kids, there are definitely more tears and more stress, but there is more laughter and smiles, too 😀

  11. Oh no! So sorry you guys have been sick! Glad you’re on the mend. You look beautiful in this dress. 🙂 Nothing like a pretty dress as a pick me up!

  12. Bootiful! We’ve had the same in our house too. A house we moved into just over a week ago (=chaos at best). This week my wee 18 month old boy is sick (fevery & heavy cold), teething, I’ve been sick, my parents live in Canada and I live in Ireland! Totally agree with you about how it would all work with another bambino thrown in the mix, but most people seem to be able to do it and survive unscathed…you guys will be great. x

  13. Jen- you look AWESOME in this tent style dress and I love seeing all your new house pics/projects now too! and the Rowan style posts are such a fun addition. I totally hear you on how hard it is to have family far away…looking forward to seeing how you handle things with #2, as our #2 comes just a month after yours! Keep up the great blogging!
