Istanbump in Istanbul


baby bump, istanbul, ethical fashion, maternity style, blue maxi dress

Soooo...surprise! My husband and I are expecting a very small human to join us this November, right around Thanksgiving. Thus we thought it appropriate to bring our little Turkey to Turkey! If you'd like to follow along on our travel adventures over the next two weeks, join me over on Instagram. Istanbul is only Part 1 of a two-part adventure, so there will be lots to see!

I hope that you will accept this new addition to my family as a totally legitimate excuse for the decrease in posting as of late-- I've been distracted...? But! I vow to supply you with twice and thrice-weekly doses of ethical style inspiration from this day forward.

In today's outfit, I'm wearing (as I so often am) second-hand finds from my favorite DC consignment boutique, Secondi. But no matter where you live, everyone wins, because I found virtually the same maxi dress on sale for $39 at Nordstrom, and it's made in the USA. Yup. You're welcome. 







I'm wearing it with a white bucket tote bag (also from Secondi and purchased especially for this trip), a vintage Vera scarf (endless options from $10-$25 on Etsy), and bangles made sustainably by Mango Tree Fitted Bangles.
