The Perfect Non-Maternity, Maternity Summer Dress From H&M

I'm no fashion-forward, stylish individual anyway but my changing body shape has meant that I've found it really hard to dress myself this pregnancy. I'm reluctant to buy much in the way of maternity clothes (I can't justify spending a shit load of money on things I'll only get a few months wear out of) and it's so hard to find regular clothes, especially dresses, that can fit over my expanding belly, without being ridiculously baggy everywhere else.

And that's when I found a friend in this cute little number from H&M. I won't lie, it's not my usual style - I don't normally 'do' florals, rather I admire them on other people from afar - but nevertheless, I love everything about this dress. The summery colour palette, the pattern, the tie detail, everything.

I think I've been converted.

It's the perfect non-maternity, maternity summer dress. The straps are adjustable which helps to accommodate the bump and the fact it nips in just below the bust means that it's super flattering. Ok, so I did have to size up (twice) and spend a while fiddling with it so that it sat just right, but once I'd got it looking how I wanted it, I felt GOOD in it.

In fact, prancing around in this dress next to the beautiful lake Garda I felt very much the glowy mumma-to-be.

I know that I'll be getting a lot of wear out of it this Summer, if (and it's a pretty big IF) the weather continues to behave itself *prays to the weather gods*.

The crossover sandals are also a H&M purchase; I'd been after a metallic pair for ages and these rose gold ones caught my eye instantly (ever the blogger cliché). I prefer sandals that don't go in between my toes, as they don't seem to rub as much and the leather-look style of these ones make them perfect for pairing with both daytime and evening attire.

FYI, they wern't the comfiest sandals to begin with, hense the bright red plaster wrapped around my big toe - OH HI BLISTER - but now I've worn them in I could happily parade around in them all day.
