Serephine maternity silk maxi dress

11 Jul


Laura Ripman, 31 from London recently reviewed this stunning Serephine maternity maxi. Laura is 34 weeks pregnant and works for IMG media.

Here is what she has to say:

"This is such a beautiful maxi dress for any pregnant lady to wear to a special occasion! The silk chiffon material makes it easy to wear on a hot summer day and the soft flowery pattern evoked many a comment from other girls saying how you really can stay on trend with clothes when pregnant!
