Isn’t post baby fashion just the most horrible thing ever. Right now I feel like I’m stuck in this big fashion vortex ripping through my wardrobe every morning and struggling to find something half decent in to make myself presentable as I race out the door.
Breastfeeding doesn’t help either, sure it’s good for baby but horrible for a fashion diva like myself, it’s so frustrating when your boobs are going up and down a cup every time the kid has a feed. Most days I throw on something baggy and unattractive to allow for growth during the day or wear something a little tighter knowing I might be at risk of exploding and ending up looking like Pam Anderson in that hot red swim suit.
AND on top of that I get the added bonus of adjusting to the weather. Which people continue to tell me is horrid for this time of the year and is the worst they have seen in years. Honestly I can deal with the heat, it doesn’t phase me at all. It’s the humidity that gets to me the most. Ten years away from the territory meant that my body had completely forgotten how intense the humidity gets up here.
I’m learning fast that less clothes is better for everyone involved. Especially when 70% of the time that we leave the house I find myself carry Abigail in the ergo.
I’m between sizes right now, my shorts are either falling off me and require a belt or a little too tight and I’m left with that teeny bit of post baby overhang sagging over my shorts, I know were keeping it sexy right here. Yesterday I purchased some new shorts. They are most definitely the shortest shorts I have ever owned but still not short enough to be trendy but any shorter and you will be getting a sneak peek of my underwear.
So tell me. What are your tricks of the trade, how did you survive the post baby fashion haze?
