Postpartum Style: Cobalt Lace
Lace top: Target (similar here) // Black top: Forever 21 // Leggings: Forever 21 // Boots: Target (similar here) // Earrings: Target // Lips; Fuchsia Flash
An outfit like the one I'm wearing here is a pretty great for the postpartum stage for the following reasons:
1. The loose, flowy tank hides my midsection
2. The leggings are comfortable and much easier to fit into than a pair of my regular jeans
2. The tank top is long enough that I can wear leggings with it without angering too many people in the "leggings are not pants" camp (although I'm sure some still wouldn't approve ha)
While it's not fun to post pictures of myself during this postpartum period, hopefully some of you will find it helpful! Also, I thought it might be fun to share a little bit of my weight loss journey as I try to get back to my pre-pregnancy state. So, each week I'm going to share my progress during the previous week and my plans for the current week. I can't exercise for the next four weeks, so my focus will mainly be on my diet for now.

You look fantastic! I love how the bright lips & statement earrings really bring attention to your face. That braid is amazing too!ReplyDelete
