Ultra Flattering Red Dress for Valentine’s Day

February 10, 2020

My first post-pregnancy announcement post, ahhh!! Read the post here. THANK YOU all so much for your amazing response. Russ and I read everything you said, and we are just so filled with gratitude. Thanks for sharing our joy! I am also pretty excited to stop hiding this bump. I always heard that it happens faster the second time, and man is that true! Today I’m sharing this ultra flattering red dress for Valentine’s Day.

Russ and I actually went on an early Valentine’s Day date this weekend. Ivy Jean stayed the night with my sister and her family, so we had a little staycation. It was a first for her, and she loved it!! She played her little heart out. Their kiddos will be staying with us this weekend. Such a fun way to get a good date! I almost wore this dress, but decided to wear the pink I wore for our announcement since I can wear this one to church.

Size and Fit

Check the photo below. It’s a now you see it, now you don’t situation with my bump. See why I say this is an ultra flattering red dress?! The ruching really does something! I sized up to a 4 so that it would fit my growing body for a bit, but I would say it is true to size.
