Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest
You may recognize this lovely lady.  Cecilia has been one of my sponsors for the past few months and she has become one of my good bloggy friends.  She lives pretty close and we really need to get together sometime, but we have both been SO busy!  Things are going to get even more busy for her once her cute little baby arrives.  Speaking of her baby...Cecilia wanted to share how she dresses her adorable baby bump with all of you today!  She also has a great giveaway at the bottom of this post, so be sure to enter :)


Hello! I'm Cecilia, a life and style blogger coming to you from Provo, Utah!  Dearest Lou is my personal outlet for all things going on in my life, including my first pregnancy, husband, and others in my life that I adore.  However, its main focus is about my personal thrifty style.

My blog acts as a motivation for me to get dolled up every day, try new styles, and as a place to see my style change and grow along with my blog.  I’m so excited to be guest-posting here on Modern Modest Beauty! I’m sure you are all familiar with Jenny’s amazing outfit posts. Well, for my post today I wanted to share some of my favorite outfit posts featuring my baby bump.
My bump didn’t begin to really stick out until I was 18 weeks along. This was my first official maternity post. I absolutely love this vintage skirt and shirt I thrifted. Now that I think about it.. this entire outfit was thrifted except for my accessories.
This was my outfit for the 4th of July this year. Something fun about being pregnant is trying to work with your current wardrobe with a growing belly. I haven’t bought any maternity clothing yet except for these awesome colored skinnies for ASOS that are currently on the way. I will be featuring them in an outfit post sometime in August.
This is by far my favorite outfit ever. My husband says I look like I came straight out of a different decade. These are my new favorite oxfords and I’m really loving the color mint and peter pan collars this year. I was exactly 20 weeks along and hit the half way mark during this little outfit session.
This is one of my most recent outfit pictures. I was a little over 21 weeks along and I feel like my bump is really growing. This dress was extremely tight on me and I knew it would show my bump nicely. Getting dressed every day is becoming more of a challenge but I really don’t mind as long as my baby boy is healthy and growing! Feel free to stop by my blog and say hello I love making new blog friends.
The giveaway will be open until July 30th and is open to all readers!  Note: You must be a follower of Modern Modest Beauty and Dearest Lou to be eligible...good luck!
