How to Feel Good After Having a Baby

LOFT Tunic | Fall StyleI posted my last pregnancy outfit earlier this week, and now it’s time to face the facts. I have a cute squishy baby and a squishy postpartum body I’m learning to love. I’ve been living in leggings.

Between my postpartum leggings and this pair of athletic leggings I have a very basic wardrobe on rotation, and I’ve been keeping it pretty casual at home.

One recent post-baby purchase I’ve made has been this tunic from LOFT. It’s so soft and cozy, and is the perfect length to wear with leggings. It’s been my go-to piece to pair with my leggings for when I want to feel a little more dressed up.

There have been a few tips I read before having Benjamin which have been helpful in my recovery. The best tips have been: sleep when possible, get out of the house early and often, set small goals, and get ready every day. Read More

My Favorite Books During Pregnancy

Fall Maternity Style

Finally, my last maternity style post! We took photos ahead of time in anticipation that I might go past my due date, but that of course didn’t happen! 🙂 Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite books during pregnancy. I read several especially during my first trimester, then picked up a few more closer to my due date.

Cream Sweater + Denim Jacket | Maternity Style

Fall Maternity Style

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving- this month has absolutely flown by! I can’t believe it will be December in just a few days! We spent the last week enjoying time with family and friends who were visiting for the holiday and also savoring our last few days of Mathew’s paternity leave.

Our little baby is three weeks old, and I’ve still got a few more maternity looks to share on the blog. 🙂 This cream sweater was a favorite of mine towards the end of my third trimester as the weather began to cool. I also wore it in this post.

Body Image During Pregnancy + Fringe Sweater

Fall Maternity Style

I thought about writing this post several times during pregnancy. Body image is a tough subject because of how personal it is. I think I even wrote a few drafts about body image that just got deleted. It’s hard to know where to start, but body image during pregnancy is something I struggled with a bit, and I think a lot of women do. Read More

Mockneck Striped Swing Tee and Top Knot

mockneck striped swing tee | maternity styleHappy Monday! We’re back to shooting photos in real time. It’s been a few weeks since we took outfit photos, and we shot multiple looks at once which I’ve been using for the last several weeks. So, basically what I’m trying to say is my belly looks a lot bigger than it did with the last outfit I shared. 🙂 I’m 36 weeks pregnant now, which means we’ve got about a month to go until our due date.

This mockneck swing tee is actually from last year, and it’s non-maternity. I bought it from the LOFT outlet last fall and I looked back in the archives and saw that I did style it in January (see the entire post here). I’m not going to lie, looking back at those photos makes me really miss my pre-pregnancy body. Read More
