When I was preggo, I had such good intentions, trying to buy pieces that would work for pregnancy and beyond. Some of those lasted for a few months post-pregnancy, but most of them are now packed away in a pregnancy box even if they weren’t technically maternity wear. One of the exceptions? This tank striped maxi dress.
Dress: (similar, option under $35), Sandals: Tory Burch, Bag: Target, Necklace: Kendra Scott, Bracelets: Stella & Dot Eden Bangle, Chevron Pave, Ring: Stella & Dot Renegade
The last time I saw this dress I belted it to accentuate a baby bump!

Super cool dress for the up comping hot summer
I have a mxi dress I kept after pregnancy as well. All of my other items I stowed away or gave to someone else. There’s something magical about the maxi dress that just instantly fits and feels right> You look great! xo
Love how you got so much use out of this maxi- good job! Looking adorable as always.

I kept most of the things I bought during pregnancy – as I usually have a very baggy/slouchy wardrobe, haha. The thing I’m saddest to see I can’t use any more is the maternity jeans I had, the stretchy belly panel just doesn’t’ stay up without a baby belly there. I probably stretched them too far at the end as baby was overdue, haha! They are packed away just in case we decide to have another baby, or if any of my relatives has another baby 🙂
Thank you for the link up!
Indeed a striped maxi is one huge Summer staple!
That’s a great dress, and I’m glad it was able to do double duty as a maternity dress too! I had the same plans of buying pieces that would work for both too but most of those didn’t happen for me either–I have a similar “maternity” bin in my basement.

This is a beautiful dress! I love the simple cut. And that necklace is a stunner.
I love a maxi dress! Super comfortable and versatile! It’s a wardrobe staple when you live in the Caribbean 🙂
I was the very same way with a lot of the clothes I wore during my pregnancies. Lucky, now I’ve been able to pass a lot of them on to Erica, so I feel like they’re getting a good amount of wear! This is such a great versatile dress!

Love this striped maxi on you! It’s so fun to see/hear how you reworked regular items for maternity wear too. As I get closer to that stage I will definitely be taking inspiration from you when the time comes.

I said the same thing with my prego clothes, but they are collecting dust in my basement lol! If I had that dress, I would so wear it now
You are so right, this maxi works perfectly now and I love the necklace!
Perfect dress for a casual day in summer!
You look awesome, Lauren! I love that stripped dress 🙂
I have a few maxi dresses that I bought during my pregnancy which I also still wear. I love this simple tank dress on you!
Happy to have found your blog and link up today! Have started following you on Instagram.
This dress is so perfect for summer, I love the stripes!
I wouldn’t fret about having packed away your maternity clothes – we have them for just that reason! No need to feel obligated to wear something designed to accommodate a baby bump when you no longer have one.
You look gorgeous in this dress, Lauren! Love it with your necklace.
This is the perfect summertime look! I love this striped dress-so versatile.
Happy Tuesday, Lauren
