Bump age: 29 weeks and 1 day
May is a busy month for Bump and I simply because everything awesome happens around this time of the year. Last week was my birthday and then Mother’s Day – thanks to Squishy, I am now entitled to celebrate! It’s also wedding season and my dear soon-to-be-married friend Sarah had her bridal shower this past weekend (psst, that’s a hint that there is a how-to-dress-your-bump for wedding post coming soon).
Sarah’s bridal shower was held at Symposium Cafe, a Mississauga restaurant that has a private room big enough to comfortably fit all her family and friends. It was a chilly, windy and rainy day but for such a cheerful event, I choose to wear this Carry Floral Tube Dress. To stay warm, I wore my go-to Noppies 40 denier tights and kept a short black cardi handy. This Carry dress has side ruching which hugs in and flatters my almost 30-week-old bump. The print is playful yet printed on a black canvas, which is en pointe. The verdict – not only comfortable, this piece is definitely a must-have, staple piece, great for bridal shower, baby shower or any event with flowers. And to my style delight, my dress perfectly complemented Sarah’s lovely floral headpiece.
The shower went on through the afternoon and, of course, there were games. My favorite one was “Find Your Mate.” Each of us had a secret celebrity name tagged on our backs and we not only had to figure out who we were by asking questions about our secret celebrity, but we also had to find our current “partner-in-crime.” Brilliant and fun, it was a great way to meet everyone in the room. After lunch, there was a simple yet very delicious vanilla and strawberry cake which was heavenly. I managed to curb my cake enthusiasm and not over-consume, knowing that later that evening was Pat’s surprise birthday dinner party. But shhh … I would never tell.
