The last 4.5 years of my life, I have been a baby factory. Between being pregnant and breastfeeding, I’ve had a whopping one-week break where I wasn’t doing one or the other. (Go big or go home!) While I am more than happy to share my body with these beloved creatures we have created, I haven’t been able to dress how I want in years. While I am not a fashion “expert,” I have come to love fashion in general. I’m not talking catwalk or Vogue Fashion, I just mean being somewhat presentable and wearing fashionable things.
Since my body has been up and down so much over these past few years (more emphasis on the up), I am now in a weird place. I just weaned my littlest, Eloise (it was a mutual decision between me and her, believe me) and now, for the first time in recent years, I can dress exactly how I want. But, I am paralyzed. Where do I even start? Clothing styles and my body shape has changed so much that my entire closet is nearly obsolete.
So here begins my embarkation into the “fifth trimester”. If you are familiar with this territory, lend me some advice! Or let’s go shopping. Because mama needs a makeover (much to my wallet’s dismay…) 😉
In an effort to embrace my freedom this past Sunday, I chose the least-breastfeeding friendly clothing option I could find. Because I could. So here is some inspiration for myself, or maybe for you if you are in the same boat! If you are still sharing or getting used to your new body, I feel you. And there is hope for freedom in your future!
