Oh, how good it feels to be blogging again!
Truly, I did not think I would miss it, as when I slowed down when I became pregnant? I was so incredibly burnt out. I was tired of waking up to take pictures every single day. So in the last few weeks when I felt the itch to start blogging again, I really surprised myself.
Now, along with that desire? There is also a little bit of dread.
I’m slowly easing back into cute clothing. Postpartum body is real, y’all. Very, very real.
As soon as I got the green light, I was out the door to start exercising. Every day that goes by, I feel better than the previous. However, that roll that wasn’t there before or just the way things fit in general makes getting dressed a little trickier.
For now, I am wearing things that I feel comfortable in and that also hide my trouble spots. I still have a bit of a postpartum belly (To be honest, this is something I’m not used to and the thing I want to get rid of the most) which was made worse because of my c-section and all of the post surgical swelling. Just trying to keep it real, y’all.
All of that being said, I thought it would be fun to start blogging now, even though I’m still not super comfortable with my post baby body. I know every woman who is a new mom (well, almost every woman) has these same feelings when getting dressed and I thought it would be fun to share the outfits I choose to hide what I’ve got going on underneath.
I would like to point out that as uncomfortable as I may feel right now, I’m truly thankful for my “jelly belly” as it also came with my little Birk. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a mom. There is a season for everything and I want to be as transparent as possible. So you might see a little mom belly here and there..but there is no shame in the mom body game.
Now, moving on to the clothes.
This kimono from Vinnie Louise is just everything. I love that it is the perfect transition piece from Summer to Fall and can be layered in so many different ways. Not to mention, the fabric is super soft and the colors are so yummy! I will definitely be wearing this way too many times in the next few months!
I hope you will follow along as I begin my journey into motherhood. There will be many clothing posts, Birk posts and some “life in general” posts. It’s fun to be back!
