I’m loving that I’ve been able to wear non-maternity pieces so far this pregnancy. It helps when you have a lot of loose, boxy pieces in your wardrobe already! And this shirtdress definitely fits the bill. It’s got a lot of room to grow and the tied front actually helps to show off the bump a little bit! This exact dress is sold out but here’s a similar style that’s less than $60 and an almost identical a-line shirtdress that’s less than $30!
A shirtdress has a menswear inspired feel to it so I decided to follow through on that theme for the whole outfit. A classic trench coat is also something that both men and women can wear and my Everlane loafers also have that menswear feel. I love that the patent leather shine of these loafers gives any outfit a more dressed up feel which is why I think they pair nicely with dresses.
And I have to talk about trench coats for a moment. I picked up this J.Crew one last year while I was trying to fill some holes in my closet. I love it but it is pretty pricey at just under $300 (I did get it on sale though). But lucky for you Everlane JUST came out with a classic trench coat that’s less than half the price! If the Everlane version had been available last year I totally would have gone with it. Everlane just sent me the navy trench and I’ll be doing a full outfit post/review on it soon. But if you are interested, the Everlane trench is more lightweight/less stiff and has more of a relaxed fit than the J.Crew trench. But it’s still made of 100% cotton and really high quality!
