10 Gorgeous Maternity Wrap Dresses

There is an excitement involved in shopping once you have a "bump" -- I'm not gonna lie. All the obvious stares, occasional inappropriate comments, and often unasked for belly rubs definitely don't outweigh the personal joy that is a growing bump and the bond you being to create with your lil' blossoming baby. 

I've been online shopping a lot to find some dresses that will be good post-partum and aren't necessarily only "maternity" but have a general silhouette that could work for me even after baby is here!

You can shop the one above right here for only $22. It's summertime and warm, so I've been gravitating towards florals but feel free to check out all the styles below and shop away! :)

10 year-round Fanny Packs

Yes, you heard me! Fanny packs are legit and don't tell me otherwise. I first bought this tan one from Target (similar here) when I shopped for my trip to Hawaii earlier this year. I knew we'd be jumping from activity to activity and wanted something easy, portable, and versatile. In comes the fanny pack.

The great thing about these is that they're useful year-round depending on what you're doing. Perfect for on-the-go storage and all those Atlanta United Games, concerts or events that prefer something clear. A clear jelly waist bag can be a savior!!

I've compiled some of my ultimate favorites here -- shop them below!

Off-shoulder tops peaked a few years ago, but I don't think they're going anywhere simply cause they feel so flattering and are super fun to wear in the summer.

As usual, it all comes down to a certain spirit in how you wear it, coupled with a good dose of self-awareness.

I figured I'd share some of my favorite off-the-shoulder looks that I have my eye on. Some are even office appropriate (providing you don't work in a strictly business casual environment); but it's safe to say most of these are for post 9 to 5 and/or weekend wear.
