Yesterday I showed the very easy and quick DIY for this adorable straw tote here. Today I wanted to show what I paired with it. I only have a few maternity shorts to get me through the summer and so I like to try and find ways to add interest to take away from the fact that I am wearing the same three pairs of shorts all the time. I do that through adding prints, bright colors, and of course, fun accessories. Adding accessories is my favorite solution because it transitions from pre-maternity to maternity to post-maternity. Accessories, like my necklace and fun tote, always fit! I also added a new cold shoulder top I recently received from Zaful. This cold shoulder top is very comfortable and just long enough now to cover the maternity band on shorts and pants. I might add more fabric in the straps to make it a little longer so I can wear it for the rest of the summer. I ordered two sizes up to a large for extra room, but if I weren't pregnant, a medium would have worked perfectly!

  39. I cannot get past the fact how amazing your legs look here, especially in the first photo. Love your new crochet pom-pom trimmed top and you did an excellent job DIY-ng that tote and making it perfect for Summer! I agree accessories can totally change an outfit and that is exactly what I did in my very last post where I wore the same outfit day to evening just changing the accessories!
