.partying while pregnant.

Dancing feels a little silly when you have a melon attached to your stomach,
but there is no need to miss out on celebrations just because you are pregnant!


The biggest struggle for me has always been finding the perfect party dress for any occasion. I struggled a bit more this time because I had to find something that fits my pregnant belly. Luckily, I came across this gem from PinkBlush. When I first found out I was pregnant, I could not wait for my belly to grow because which other time in my life was I going to get away with rocking a giant pot belly? I picked out this black shimmery party maternity dress because it flaunts my giant belly curves.




Little black dresses are magical. They can be styled in so many ways! I really wanted to wear bold makeup  and gold accessories. I was hoping to make my makeup stand out, so I stayed away from statement jewelry. I paired the dress with simple black sandals that had a gold chunky heel, which were as comfortable as the dress. I am so glad I was able to find trendy maternity dresses through PinkBlush because I have no idea what I would have worn to this party! 

Parties are so much different during pregnancy. My drink of choice of choice contained zero alcohol. I was able to enjoy the food a lot more to the point where I almost moved my chair by the food table. I had to go to the restroom so frequently that I could have made multiple trips with my eyes closed. Sober dancing is still be fun, but sober pregnant dancing, well, let's just say there were a lot of resting breaks involved. My pregnant state brought me more attention than I am used to and at the end of the night I had to make sure I did not fall asleep while people tried taking pictures with me.  


P.S. I will be hosting a giveaway very soon on my Instagram page. Make sure you follow me and I will follow back! I will be giving away a gift card to shop at PinkBlush and keep in mind they also have regular women's clothes and really cute baby and toddler clothing as well. May the odds be ever in your favor.

Thank you for stopping by! I always look forward to reading your comments and visiting your pages!

Much love,

  6. You look gorgeous, the dress really flatters your pregnant body! I can't remember if I danced a lot at this stage of my pregnancy, but I couldn't wear even the tiniest heel, I would get horribly cramps if I did.

  10. You look absolutely GORGEOUS! I love this dress on you, it flatters the beautiful baby bump perfectly! I know all too well the struggles of finding pieces that not only fit in general, but even more so when pregnant, but you nailed it with this dress. I also love your approach to styling it, having your makeup be the statement of the look, only applying earrings. It really causes the eye to focus on the face. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I'll be sure to keep my eye out for that giveaway!

  18. What a fun maternity dress! A classic piece like this will get you through a lot of parties in pregnancy, as you can just change up the accessories each time! :)

    I wasn't a big partier in my pregnancies - I was always tired and I couldn't wear heels - too clumsy!

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :) We are getting some much-needed rain here which is fantastic. Does mean we aren't doing what we had planned though, haha!
