Steppin' Out Saturday - 1st date night in AGES (and a giveaway!) CLOSED

It has been more months than I care to admit since Mike and I have been able to get out for longer than a couple of hours. Last night we went to a dear friend's wedding reception while Mike's parents watched Carina and it was FANTASTIC. I really enjoyed getting a little dressed up and straightening my stubborn hair for the 1st time in over a year. I felt pretty and relaxed and we had such a wonderful time. I may or may not have eaten four (yes, 4!) desserts. By the end of the night Aurelia was kicking like she was running out of space in there ;)

Sandals: Kohl's
Arm Candy: That would be Mike, of course ;)

To be completely honest, at first I was a bit intimidated by this dress from Milan Maternity. I didn't think I would be able to pull it off due to my pasty, pasty whiteness (it seems to be physiologically impossible for me to tan, ha!) After some encouraging by Mike to step outside my comfort zone and try something different than my usual blue, purple, or white, I gave in and I'm so glad I did. I received compliment after compliment and felt so confident and cute wearing it. While the dress looked great all night, unfortunately the humidity got to my hair rather quickly...curse this 95 degree weather!

The Feliciana in Cerise Red is a faux wrap dress with ruffle detail and flutter sleeves.  The single side ruching makes the dress flattering during any stage of pregnancy and I think it will be perfect for slimming even after baby arrives. Before we left for the wedding I took advantage of the inner tank sheath, which allows for easy nursing; just pull the outer layer over and lift the inner sheath. Made of 70% polyester, 25% viscose, and 5% spandex, I love the way the dress feels: nice and comfy, and just a little stretchy.

28 weeks!
Other styles I love from Milan Maternity include the Aubriella, Carissa, and Elisabetta tops and Vittoria dress.

Milan Maternity's philosophy:
Pregnancy is a time to be celebrated and every woman deserves to have a great wardrobe during this special nine months! However, most of us don’t have $80 to slap down for a single designer maternity top, and also don’t want to settle for frumpy, unflattering styles either. Our mission is to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.

Milan Maternity offers stylish and affordable maternity, nursing, and transitional wear. What's transitional wear? Those perfect pieces that fit just like regular tops but have some extra length added for the baby bump. Great for before, during, and after pregnancy. Psst...peek at their homepage - you can get 10% off every order with coupon code 10MMOFF!

Milan Maternity is generously offering one of my readers a top of their choice!
