Rebecca Taylor Dress: ℅ Marshalls
Steve Madden Heels: Thrifted
Bracelet: TJMaxx

This is my last outfit with my baby bump! I bought this dress pretty early in my pregnancy, but I knew the silhouette would fit me later in my later months. It's from, you guessed it, Marshalls! I found it on the clearance rack and was super excited when I saw it was Rebecca Taylor. I usually skip on this designer brand because everywhere else that carries it is SO expensive. These dresses START at around $100- no way jose! I purchased this whimsical beauty for only $33! The best part about it is that I will be able to wear it this summer. The quality of the dress is amazing and I love the ruffled detailing on the one-shoulder neckline. 
I wore this dress multiple times in my pregnancy, but my favorite moment would have to be my baby shower. I wanted to wear something that I would feel confident and beautiful in- and this dress did just that for me. Plus, it's so darn comfortable. Many people reach the end of pregnancy and don't feel confident or beautiful. Trust me- I had those days! I actually took these photos the day before I went into labor;  I was 39 weeks and 3 days and let me tell you- I felt amazing! I'm not saying a pretty dress solves all my problems, but it does give me a little pick-me-up once in a while :)
