I figured that since I've been getting so much use out of my maxi skirts, I should try a maxi dress. I picked this one up for 40% off at Gap thinking that it would be postpartum and breastfeeding friendly (I did order one size up to accommodate for both). I like that I can dress it down with a jean jacket and sandals or dress it up with heels and a cardi (I'm thinking rehearsal dinner dress for the weddings that I'm in this summer?)
And a couple other spring shopping purchases were this denim jacket from J. Crew Factory and these awesome Old Navy sandals that I blogged about last week (they are suprisingly comfortable). I bought the J. Crew Nolita denim jacket a couple years ago on final sale, but I ended up giving it to my mom who is a few inches shorter than me with a shorter torso. It never quite fit me right (too cropped for my frame) and I'm way happier with the cut of the J. Crew Factory version.
Maxi dress: Gap
Denim jacket: J. Crew Factory
Shoes: Old Navy
Necklace: Madewell (old)
And for Five Favs this week, here's a round-up of some natural birth stories that I've been reading:
1. Anne's birth story was really encouraging to me, since she makes a natural birth seem totally feasible (not easy, but feasible)
2. I can't believe that Martha was 10 cm when they first checked her at the hospital - that is awesome.
3. Sarah's birth story is another great natural birth story.
4. And so is Katrina's.
5. Lastly, for the craziest of them all (and then some), is Indiana's.
Let's hope mine isn't nearly as crazy. Linking up with Five Favorites and What I Wore Wednesday.
