My adorable sister in laws threw me a shower this past weekend and it gave me inspiration to show you my favorite baby shower looks. Now…something that I have learned over the years of baby shower attending is that there are different types of showers, some are more fancy, some more whimsical, some more laid back. I have put together a look for each occasion. That’s why this is post one out of three. The other two posts will be coming later this week!
This look is definitely more fancy and fun! I have my heels on and my oh so favorite comfy Pink Blush dress. My belly made this dress a little shorter on me than I would like so I decided to put a skirt extender underneath to give me some extra length. My heels are from Kohls and are seriously my FAVORITE heels ever. The type of shower you would want to wear this dress for would be a little fancier and one where you know that you will be sitting a lot (I don’t know about you but heels wreak havoc on my preggo body).
I was recently introduced to the book The Daily Soul Sessions For The Pregnant Mama and let me tell you… it is my new very favorite thing. It has give my pregnancy a whole new perspective and in the last week or two that I have been reading it have felt so uplifted and so connected to my baby girl. It is the most PERFECT baby shower gift or anytime gift to give to a pregnant mama you know. It will be so good for their soul. I want to share with you one of my favorite days that I have read so far. It was on 27 Weeks, 2 Days, it says:
“Do you remember how carefree you were as a child? How confident and fearless and filled with dreams just bursting to come out! It never occured to us not to dream- one two, ten, twelve dreams a day were perfectly normal. Future Mama- we are about to raise our own dreamers. Such a hopeful thought. I want to be a mom who leads not just by teaching but by doing as well. So. Today I choose to dream. All day long…and make one of those dreams a reality. Even if it’s just a small one! Play dress up, be a famous chef for one day, sing at the top of my lungs and convince everyone I’m a Broadway Star!
What’s your dream today?”
Every day this book brings me something to think about or a new way I can connect to my sweet baby. I have truly loved getting to read it every day. I wake up in the morning and It is the VERY first thing that I do. Lately its part of the what gets me up in the morning!
What’s your favorite baby gift that you have received?
