Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

How was everyone's Easter Sunday?! I hosted Sunday brunch and we had such a great time spending the holiday with family. If you've been reading for a while now, then you may have noticed that I love to host the holidays at my house; I just love to cook and have my family around me. It makes me smile when I know they've enjoyed what I've worked so hard to make and put together. I hope Baby A loves to cook and entertain as much as her mama!

Well, this is the dress I wore yesterday. I was so glad when I found it while out shopping a couple of weeks ago because I can't fit into any of my other dresses that would've otherwise been suitable for the holiday. I knew I wanted a maxi dress because as I've been mentioning, I've been trying my best to purchase pieces that I can wear both now and post delivery and maxi dresses are definitely one of those pieces. You don't usually have to go up a size either, since most styles are stretchy or flowy. I've been loving those with an empire waistline specifically, since they accommodate a growing bump and shows it off rather nicely, too :) 

Speaking of empire waistlines, which is basically a waistline that starts right underneath the bust, they're perfect options for those apple body shapes. This shape has a full bust, as well as a wide upper body; the stomach is where you'd typically gain weight, if you were to fall into this category. Plus, if you have a long torso or just wish to appear visually taller, empire waists are a great solution, in that they visually extend the length of the legs, making them appear longer ;) 

Feel free to share your Easter Sunday plans, I'd love to know what you did and wore! Thanks so much for stopping by, my dear friends, and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead!
