wear.

since a lot of my maternity clothes weren't actual maternity clothes, i'm able to still wear them without having them scream: I'M A MATERNITY SHIRT. SEE THE SIDE-RUCHING? THE ICE CREAM AND THAI FOOD STAINS? or HEY! THESE PANTS WERE MADE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN! DID YOU SEE THE ELASTIC WAIST WHEN I BENT DOWN TO WIPE THE SNOT/YOGURT MIXTURE OFF MY DAUGHTER'S UPPER LIP? YEAH, I'M NOT PREGNANT ANYMORE BUT I'M STIIIIILL WEARIN' EM!
however, it's extremely annoying to have a closet-full of clothes that i don't fit into. i'm sooo ready to wear my old clothes. every day i leave my workout class thinking, yeah, i'm lookin good! i'm totally going to wear that skirt/dress/shorts/pants that didn't fit yesterday!

so i try on my favorite jeans and they don't even make it past my hips. and it's ridiculous because i tried them on the day before and they didn't make it past my hips then either! i'm delusional enough to think that today was The Magical Work-Out that made my body just small enough to get into those jeans. i know the day will come, but my impatience causes me to check every. day.

so, tuesday i had the big 6-wk. appointment. i figure i should probably get a shower before i went since it'd been a day or so (okay, it was saturday night). not only did i shower; i dried my hair, put make-up on, and tried to put on a decent outfit. this has become a monumental task and reason to celebrate.
tunic, tank, belt, bracelet: j.crew
leggings: f21
flats: steve madden


the non-maternity solution to my never-ending fat day? leggings!
they're as comfy as yoga pants but still considered actual clothing!
(nay-sayers, keep your rain off my parade. i'm wearing my leggings 'til the Magical Work-Out Day arrives and i'm able to wear my jeans again. deal with it.)

  2. ditto manda! she is so stinkin' cute!

    ummm....i think you could be the cutest 6wk post girl i have ever seen. love the belted tunic!! I totally want to copy--but just my luck i'd be asked by complete strangers when my non-existent baby is due.

    don't beat yourself up about post baby body! it took you nine months to get that way....give yourself a couple months to shrink back down.

    heck, avery is four....i'm just sayin'.
