Maternity Style: Athleisure

Ingrid & Isabel Maternity Dress

The power of ruched maternity dressed in your arsenal is no joke. As you may be able to tell, I’ve been on quite the ruched dress kick lately. Both the maternity and non-maternity variety have a way of making in to my online cart. Case in point. My pal Julia turned me on to this must-have maternity dress when she wore it with a cute jacket and boots. I paired mine with my beloved Nike Internationalists for an athleisurely family stroll down Third Street Promenade.

Okay, I made a non-sensical fashion term even more non-sensical with ‘athleisurely’ but I couldn’t resist. After finally finding these Nikes in my size, they’ve been part of my uniform making athleisure a nearly every day occurrence. How often is it that wearing sneakers with your dresses can be chic? I mean, I’d do it regardless, but the fact that I can claim it as stylish makes an effortless look a no-brainer.

    I can totally see why you love this dress—it’s so incredibly flattering! I absolutely love that you paired it with sneakers for an “athleisurely” look 😉 I always wear my Nikes, too! Always a sensible purchase.
