Style File: skipping stones dress

This awesome blogger, Melissa, knows how to combine fashion and motherhood. We can't get enough of her! This is how she styled our skipping stones dress (size small) during her recent pregnancy:

The dress, belt, jeggings, cardigan...and those flats! She's one fashionable mama. Annnd now that her beautiful baby boy is here, she can still wear the dress!

If you love this look, we still have the dress in magenta. ♥

skipping stones dress in magenta
autumn in the woods beaded brown dress
i need you rose sweater
your genuine heart floral maxi dress
something simple smocked gray dress
paradise in plum pleated dress

simplest love heathered gray dress

Let us know what you plan on wearing!

Thank you so much for this post! I am currently pregnant and refuse to purchase maternity wear. It's been really hard to find normal clothes for my belly, and these finds are amazing! Yay! :)

why the need to emphasize the size small? It's uneccessary and makes us fashionable pregnant women who are not a size small *not before or during pregnancy* feel pretty bad.

We're sorry for any negative feelings regarding the size! We simply noted it for size comparison, and to point out that the dress is stretchy. We don't have a maternity line, so we wanted to help ladies figure out what size might work for them. :)

I am wearing gold heels. You can see them better here:

I originally bought them to go with a hand-dyed silk dress that my grandma handed down to me. I didn't think I'd get much use out of them, but they're my fave!

Here's a pic of me wearing them with the silk dress:
