I really enjoyed participating in the Mama Fashion link-up last week.
It was so much fun to connect with all those other mama's out there,
I even made some blog friends ( hi! ).
But the part I loved best was the inspiration these other mama's gave me.
Since becoming a mama I've been struggling a bit with what to wear
because of some changes to my body due to growing a human in my belly for nine months and a breastfeeding baby.
I'm a bit self-conscious of my 'jelly belly' as I like to call it.
There's a bit too much left-over skin for my liking.
So tight fitting shirts are out of the picture.
And because a certain little monster is eating me alive (a.k.a. nursing)
I've lost so much weight that I don't fit into my pre-pregnancy pants anymore,
so I've needed to purchase new ones on a hardly existing budget.
I used to love wearing dresses, and I have quite a few,
but they don't really go well with nursing.
Pulling up your dress in public is only acceptable in kindergarten, yes?
As you see I've been kind of stumped in the fashion dept. lately
and it was so helpful to see how other mama's dress and what their must-have pieces are.
So I thought it would be fun to participate with an other fashion link up,
What I Wore Wednesday, to be inspired and maybe even inspire others too!
I know I'm supposed to have photo's of all the outfits I wore in the last week,
but I didn't have time to do so. So one outfit it is!
^ ^ ^ ^
(Sorry for the awkward photos and the gross mirror...I need to clean it, I know!)
Lately my favorite pieces are flowy shirts. They hide the lovely muffin top perfectly!
I have a few different ones, but this one is my favorite.
It has polka dots, hello!!
And it's a fun twist on a button down shirt, with buttons on the back instead of on the front.
I think the little guy approves :)
So, how are you dealing with getting dressed since becoming a mama?
