June Blogging Challenge Day 30 - Last Day!

I can't believe that it's the last day of Waiting For Baby's June Blog Challenge! It was nice to blog about things other than TTC for a while and I hope that you learned more about me besides my ovulation dates. I know I missed a few days, but adding in TTC updates means that I blogged every day this month! While I don't think I'll continue that trend in the future, hopefully I'll get in the habit of posting more often.

So today, the last prompt of the challenge is, "What's one thing in your closet you wear when you have a nice occasion? Interpret that as a date night or important job event."

At the end of May, my work had its annual fundraiser. Every year we've had our gala at our gallery, but this year one of the richest families in town donated their house mansion for the event. All of a sudden, what was normally a casual dressed event turned into something much more formal. We don't have many stores in my small town, so I was stuck with Old Navy.

For some strange reason, the trend these days is the "natural waist" look on dresses which looks absolutely horrible on me. After striking out with all of the dresses at Old Navy, I said what the hell and headed to the maternity section.

Et voila, I found my dress.

It's blue with eyelet detail at the bust. It can be worn with our without the straps and is super comfortable. I wore it for the gala as well as running errands around town. I was so worried that since it was made for a growing belly, that it would make me look pregnant, but it made me look less so than the other non-maternity dresses I had tried on earlier. The bonus is, I can wear it now, as well as when I get pregnant!
