As I’ve lost a little more of the baby weight I am feeling more comfortable going out and buying things in close to my previous ‘normal’ size. When I count back through the pregnancy months – I haven’t been able to buy ‘normal’ clothes in almost a year! Nuts! So I’ve had a bit of fun shopping over the last month and this post is a rundown of things that I bought:
1. Tops that flow away from my mid-section –
Because I’m nursing – I still have a huge rack – and my mid-section isn’t quite where is used to be – so I’ve found that all the shirts I’ve purchased have been lightweight, non-wrinkle, flowy shirts. I liked that style of shirts before my body created a tiny human so they should stay in the rotation going forward regardless of what size I end up at.
- 3 Henely sleeveless shirts – Loft
- Black (outfit) – shop same, similar, similar, similar
- Green triangle – shop same, similar, similar
- Berry Print (outfit) – shop same, similar
- 4 Portofino shirts – Express
2. Fun dresses –
Summer is always about dresses for me! As far as getting dressed, dealing with the Florida heat & still looking professional – there is nothing better. I have purchased three sleeveless work dresses (I have posted quite a few outfits with the floral dress but still need to do blog posts with the white one & striped one) and a fun ‘night out’ maxi dress (post needed for this dress too). The maxi dress has a fitted, short underlayer part and a very swingy sheer top layer. I have found it to be very forgiving body-shape-wise which is great for my ever changing body shape!
- White shirt dress – Ann Taylor
- Floral ponte dress (outfits) – Lands End
- Striped ponte dress – J.Crew Factory
- Maxi dress – Express
3. Pencil skirts –
I’m not quite back into my pre-pregnancy work pencil skirts yet. So when J.Crew Factory was having a sale I bought two skirts in a slightly larger then normal size. They’ve been wonderful additions to all the tops I have in letting me create work outfits with something other then the few pairs of pants I’ve been wearing on repeat.
- Navy pencil skirt – J.Crew Factory
- Aqua pencil skirt – J.Crew Factory (outfits)
4. New Work Bag –
As I mentioned yesterday – I just invested in a new work bag and I’m in L-O-V-E love. It holds two laptops with assorted stuff, is very sturdy and super pretty. Winner.
