How I wore this crochet maxi dress before and after maternity.

Crochet Maxi Summer dress orange clutch

Crochet dresses are delicate and intricate.  There is a special beauty about them knowing that this is a pattern that someone could recreate by hand.  My love for crochet comes from my favorite aunt of mine when I was young.
 She taught me at a very young age but unfortunately, I did not stick with it. Today, I am still at the beginner level. I always think that if I had tried to learn more and kept practicing, I might have been able to make this dress myself...oh well, I guess not.  I do love the craft though and I will just have to stick with simple blankets and scarves.

This dress is one of my favorites because of the crochet pattern and because of its versatility.  I bought and wore this while I was 7 months pregnant.  This is not a maternity dress, I just purchased one size up.  I wore this for my family baby shower in New York.  It fit comfortably over my baby bump and elongated my legs with its see through pattern.  I wore gold high heels with it to keep it from touching the floor, I am a shorty after all.  Now, fast forward a year later and I am still wearing this dress.  

When I was pregnant, it was important to buy pieces that I would be able to still wear after I gave birth.  Versatility and budget conscious go hand in hand to me.  Even though I wore this last year, it felt like a brand new dress.  I tied a belt around the waist and paired it with summer wedges.  It still fit me well and hugged my shape nicely.  I wore this to weekend brunch as well as to the office for summer Friday's.  Restyling maternity outfits can be easy and a great way to get more use out of the items in your closet.
