Maternity Style: The Makeup Show Dallas #ootd

Who What Where for Target Utility JacketGAP Maternity Tank TopGAP Maternity 1969 JeanBurberry Hodgeson Flat, Kate Spade 'spencer court' - lavinia leather & suede crossbody (similar here and here), Maybelline Matte Lip Color ‑ Daringly Nude (similar here)

I bought these espadrille flats earlier this spring and never wore them because right after I got them, I found out I was pregnant! Given that these flats were a bit narrow for my feet and knowing that I was going to have to embrace swollen pregnant feet for a few months, I held off on wearing them and had plan to break into them next spring.

We are a little over 6 months into pregnancy and I just couldn't wait to wear the shoes! My legs and feet did swell up a bit from all the walking I did that weekend but I made it through!

Quick close-up of my #ootd details.

Professional Makeup Artist, James Vincent delivered an inspiring and motivating speech on how the makeup industry keeps pushing forward with innovation and dedication to the art and about how having love and acceptance for everyone who comes into the industry gives the world that light of hope regardless of what all chaos has become upon us.

I was lucky enough to be able to bring my SIL with me to TMS! She was my photographer the entire weekend!

Newcomers to The Makeup Show Dallas included Kat Von D Beauty, MAC Cosmetics, VooDoo Makeup, Smith Brushes, Estee Lauder, and many more.

Couldn't leave The Makeup Show without taking a selfie at the selfie station equipped with lighting by Glamcor!

Overall, I enjoyed the time I spent at The Makeup Show this year very much! With my pregnancy, I got worn out more easily this year so I took it easy as much as I could and wouldn't have even survived the time I spent at TMS without the help of my SIL and great friend, Julie! (Love you both! xo)
