I feel like it’s been forever since I last posted an outfit post. After Lucy’s arrival, I basically went on a 6 week hiatus. Then I started posting regularly on Instagram (by the way, if you’re not following me, you’re missing out all the baby update and mom outfits). But I haven’t had a blog post up until this one.
If you saw my preggo styling post on how not to look like you’ve gained 50 lbs from pregnancy, you’d know I gained 50 lbs from pregnancy more or less. My little “mom pouch” is still here, and it’s 9 weeks postpartum. The weight I gained is mostly in my thighs and bottom, but of course everywhere else too. If right now you’re thinking I look great and I’m just being dramatic, that is because you’re a very sweet person and I thank you so much. But my digital scale doesn’t lie, I’ve only lost half of the amount I gained. And also, I never show you the ugly 850 photos Dylan took of me that don’t make the cut for Instagram.
I also have decided somewhere between “I can’t pull up my pre-pregnancy jeans” and “even if I can pull them up, my thighs look like they’ll burst out of the fabric” that I no longer want to be seen in pants. No jeans, no leggings. Maybe leggings but only when I go running. Again, follow me on Instagram and you’ll see my most recent outfits are pant-less. Dresses and skirts all the way. A bit challenging in winter weather, but I’d rather be cold.
Anyways, since I no longer wear pants now, I make an effort to find all the cute dresses that could be made into a winter outfit. And how cute is this sweatshirt dress with the ruffle details. I added this faux fur vest and completed the look with a double pom hat and some bow booties.
Hope you enjoy this cute look. And you’ll see more dresses and skirts even in this winter weather. Because like I said, I cannot even see myself in the mirror with pants.
