I was recently afforded the opportunity to take a well deserved staycation at the beach, and you bet I jumped at that opportunity! Now that I’m almost through the first trimester of my pregnancy I am having trouble finding anything that fits me. I was feeling pretty depressed about my tight clothes until I realized I had a Karina Dress hanging in my closet. Thank goodness! Now, it just so happened that the style I packed was my Audrey dress. Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday was the day we arrived to our resort. Coincidence? Yes. Was it meant to be? Absolutely! Audrey would have loved the warm turquoise water, white sand, beautiful sunset and spending her birthday at the beach. I know I did!
My Audrey dress is so comfortable and hits at the perfect spot, just under the bust. At 5’7″ she hits right above me knees, which is hard to tell in the pictures due to the incredible gulf breeze hitting my back. The top of the dress is full coverage so I don’t have to worry about spilling out when I pick up my 2 year old. The fabric fits very nicely over my expanding midsection, almost concealing my pregnancy completely. One thing I do want to mention about Karina Dresses that I have yet to mention previously is their incredibly fast shipping! I ordered my dress on a Monday and had it before  week’s end. Normally I would never order a dress online and expect it in the same week, but that might just be an exception with Karina Dresses.


The Audrey by Karina comes in X/S (0-4), S/M (6-8), M/L (10-14), X/L (14-1616-20). All Karina Dresses are machine washable, hang to dry and never need to be ironed. This dress retails for $99.
