Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : Feathers & Flowers

Feathers & Flowers

Dressing with a protruding belly can be a challenge, but also allows for some creativity when wearing basic items. Today's versatile wardrobe item: the maxi skirt

Converting a flowing maxi skirt to a tube dress allows for much-needed belly space for myself, but also looks great on any body shape. Add a belt and cardi to give it a put-together feel. 

Wearing a print always brings dimension to any outfit, so I suggest wearing one bold piece to give balance. When mixing prints, try to keep it at 2 items. If you start going over that number, chances are you will end up looking like an old bag lady. Who wants that? Not this mama. A subtle print in tights, paired with a print on a key item in the outfit is always a great way to mix!

Do you love my feather headband? You can get yours at Linda's Vintage! Jess, from Steve & Jess (one of my favorite blogs), is the creator and designer of the divine hair accessories line. All of her pieces are handcrafted to perfection with that extra bit of classic Hollywood glam we all love.

Headband: Linda's Vintage. Cardi & Belt: LOFT. Maxi skirt/dress: Thrifted. Tights: Macy's. Booties: Charlotte Russe.

Have a fabulous day, lovelies!
