Not to be shamelessly excited, but you guys, John and I found our first pair of 'couple friends' here! Hopefully they'll still keep being our friends after they see this. Bahaha. It all started when I met one of our new neighbors while walking in our neighborhood. We had one of those "You just moved here? So did we! Let's be friends." moments and decided to go out to dinner in a cool up and coming area of Charlotte. We ended up having a great time and can't wait to see more of them over the summer. :)
Deciding what to wear for dinner was easy because I just wanted something comfortable but pretty. So I pulled out this floral dress that I bought on Amazon for our trip to Italy last fall and was thrilled that it still fit over my bump. Can you believe I snagged it for under $30?! The dress is pretty low-cut, so I stitched up the front a bit to make it more comfortable. I paired the dress with these earrings from the boutique (20% OFF with code HELLOMOM until 5/14!) and topped it off with my favorite long-wear lip gloss in 'Daring Red'. Seriously though, this lip gloss is LIFE-CHANGING and lasts through eating, drinking, anything! I discovered it several years ago when I was trying to find a long-wear lip color for our wedding and haven't turned back since.
Side note: John said that I looked like Esmeralda and made me smile from ear to ear. Hey, I'll take a Disney character comparison as a compliment ANY day of the week!
And since we're talking about pretty maxi dresses, I pulled together a few other ones that I'm hard-core crushing on. I love love love this striped maxi dress and this stunning yellow floral dress from Anthropologie. I'm also head-over-heels for this sweet floral midi dress from Lord & Taylor. It would be perfect for a summer party or day-time wedding!
