Last week our little family headed over to Atlantis in the Bahamas to take advantage of my second to last week of maternity leave. We had a wonderful time and the tiny human did great – both with her first time flying and with the new environment. This week I’m going to share some of the outfits I wore on vacation. I hope you enjoy!
Before the trip, as I attempted to pack, I tried on some of my favorite beachwear from my closet but frustratingly everything was uncomfortably or inappropriately tight because of the baby weight I’m still carrying. So annoying. I already knew I was going to be self-conscious in beach clothes and bathing suits at this higher weight so to counteract that feeling I decided to treat myself to a few ‘nice’ larger sized pieces before the trip that I knew that I would feel good wearing. Vacation is so much more relaxing and enjoyable when you are comfortable in your own skin!
I went to the Lilly Pulitzer store and bought this maxi and a blue tunic – both of which are bright and fun and most importantly actually fit! (Although my nursing boobs are so huge – they are a little ridiculous in everything I wear.) Mission success! I loved wearing my new purchases and think that I will be able to tailor them a touch when I get smaller so that they still fit.
One night while we were there we got a babysitter and I wore this dress with my highest wedges to go to dinner at Nobu (yum!) and then to watch a pretty funny comedy show. (I also carried a cream light knit cardigan because the a/c was frigid in some parts of the resort.)
