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 past few months and this post is a rundown of things that I bought:
1. Pink bow blouse
I love bow blouses just about as much as I love striped shirts and cardigans – which is to say forever and ever with all my heart. So when I saw this pretty pale pink one at Target I had no other choice but to bring it home with me. So pretty & ladylike!
2. Printed skirt
I was super excited by how flattering this skirt was when I tried it on. It just feels pretty. And it has a ton of great colors to mix & match with cardigans and blouses. Love!
3. Two 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.
- Red windowpane crepe shell blouse – Merona Target
- Sleeveless grey floral v-neck top – Old Navy
4. Fun dresses –
It’s technically Fall in Florida but our temperatures will tell you otherwise. So I’ve picked up a few inexpensive dresses from Old Navy in pretty fall colors. That way I feel in the season but don’t sweat to death. And I also found a nice heavy weight good quality black sweater dress from Ann Taylor for actual cooler weather.
- Black sleeveless sweater dress – Ann Taylor
- Burgundy floral cami dress – Old Navy
- Purple plaid printed cami dress – Old Navy
- Teal floral sleeveless shift dress – Old Navy
- Burgundy printed shift dress – Old Navy
I bought a pair of black Tory Burch ballet flats three years ago. They were my first pair of shoes that cost that much. I wore them multiples times a week to work, play and travel. I wore them so much that I wore a hole through the heel on one shoe and the toe on the other. I always chose to wear them over all the rest of my flats sitting in my closet. So, since the pair I had were on their last leg, I decided to suck it up and replace the black pair and invest in a brown pair as well. It was a little pricey but if I get the same number of wears out of these two pairs the cost per wear will be reasonable enough to me to justify spending so much.
