Lessons Learned

While I'm usually pretty awesome at buying clothes online (I've only had to return something for bad sizing once!) this particular dress got the best of my judgement.  When I first found out I was pregnant I went a little crazy at ASOS and bought three maternity dresses.  Two out of the three were a little large but workable.  This number, however, was a tent.  FYI, maternity sizes reflect your pre-pregnancy size so don't size up like I did.  I know they have free returns but it takes forever and I'm quite impatient.  So I took a little tip from Midwest Muse and belted the tent.  It worked!

I don't normally go for orange hues when shopping but I think it's a great color for the season.  I figured mix and matching a bunch of my leopard accessories would work with the orange dress as well.  I'm really happy with this outfit and plan on wearing it more often.

Does anyone else like it better when their hair is a day or two "old" aka dirty?  When I curl my hair I always love it two days out.  It sounds gross but I'll wash it once it's lost the curl.  Maybe I just need to learn how to do a looser curl?  Guess it's time to hit the Pinterest boards!
