This past weekend, Joe and I drove up to my in-laws' cottage on Lake Huron for some much needed R&R. Given we never really had a honeymoon because our wedding was practically planned in 30 days and everywhere we wanted to travel isn’t recommended for pregnant women due to Zika, we’ve just been playing it safe and have only traveled to places that aren't really warm. Trust me on this one – my skin hasn’t seen warm weather or sun since last summer! Talk about pasty legs!

Well turns out, our drive up north ended up being absolutely beautiful, with lots of sunshine and temps hitting almost 80, which was just what the doctor ordered! We ended up getting to sit on the ‘beach’ (as a southern gal, I’ll never understand why northerners call the lake the ‘beach’) and I even got to stick my swollen cankles in the water!

Side Note: Just because it is warm outside does not mean that a massive body of water is also warm…almost immediately after I put my toes in the water, my feet went numb from the FREEZING cold water. But seriously, I have never in my life felt water that cold – and I even went to a titanic exhibit which allowed you to feel the temperature of the water from the night the ship sank. Nevertheless, the water was so cold, my cankles (ohh pregnancy swelling!!!) were long gone and I could tell the difference between my toes and the top of my foot again...frankly, it's been a while since I saw my normal size feet, so I guess I shouldn't complain lol.

Anyway, I’ve been wearing as many dresses as I can as of lately – dresses are just so much more simple for me to put on and style right now. Bonus: Maxi dresses are hiding a lot of my feet and ankle swelling and this little purple maxi is no exception! Plus, with the back cut out, it makes it a fun alternative to most maternity wear. Truthfully, it would make such a fun gender reveal dress (since blue (boy) and pink (girl) make purple! Read that post here). This isn’t actually a maternity dress, but with the flowing fabric, I knew it wouldn’t be an issue with fit as long as I sized up. I’m telling y’all, you need to check out Tobi. Especially with festival season going on. There are so many perfect dresses for this spring/summer season!

Life is just better with pretty dresses, warm weather and the beach. Am I right?!


xoxo, Jessica
