WhatiWore: I’m baaaacck! At least I’m trying to get back into the swing of taking outfit photos. A change in location (and the extra hands of family around) has been so helpful in getting back outside and into the groove. I promise you if I was in Indiana right now I wouldn’t be excited about posing in the freezing cold! But here’s what I wore for a beach walk in Florida!
If you’re not on Instagram or Facebook, the first thing you’re probably thinking right now is OMG YOU’RE BLONDE! I started the transition in late December and am getting closer and close to where I want to be with it. In the past it’s always taken me a while to adjust my wardrobe to “fit” a new cut, and the new color is challenging me in the same way.
When: March 13, 2017
Where: Anna Maria Island Beach
Secondly - I had a baby! She’ll be making some cameos in the next few posts too! I’m biased but she’s sooooo cuuuuuutttte! Physically, I’m taking my time getting back to my pre-baby body. I’m about ten pounds from that now and all of that weight is in my top and middle (hence the shorts! Flaunt what you’ve got!) With a really curvy shape (read: giant boobs) plus the blonde hair, sometimes I feel a little too… sexy? I don’t know. It’s not something I aim for in day to day mommy life so I feel like I need to compensate for the bigger chest and blonde locks by going a little more on the modest side? Dressing this temporary body doesn’t come with a game plan other than easy access for nursing.
What I really want to say is that I feel pretty good, but still struggling a little with a different body to dress and I think it’s completely normal to have some issues with the adjustment. I was so flat as a teenager and wished for bigger boobs and now I wish I didn’t have such huge knockers to contend with! You can love your baby and your body and still have times when you need to work harder emotionally to keep the self esteem up. Whenever a moment of doubt creeps in (it’s bound to happen!) I just remind myself - I’m so proud of my daughter! I’m so proud of myself!!! I MADE THAT BABY!!! WITH MY BODY!!!
