It's a New Year and the briskness in air feels just right for a new beginning. However, before the Bay Area dropped to near freezing temperature, I was able to wear a floral number for a little while. This high waist dress is actually not a maternity dress but was surprising accommodating for the first two trimesters. The long pleats right below the waist line hid my bump earlier in the pregnancy (up to 4 months) then allowed me to grow into it over time. I'm thankful for my impulse purchases that allowed me to have one more thing to wear other than my leggings and oversized tee.
