This entire photo sequence makes me wish I knew how to splice together a GIF. Me, trying to snap some quick photos before the Saks event (see previous post from 10/1). Kiki, total photobomb, and last ditch effort to make mom play before she runs out of the house.
Like pets, babies are total lessons in patience. The baby is the sensei, I am but the humble grasshopper. I discovered a few things this last month, but seriously wait, can you believe it has been a month since I had a BABY? What the....
Baby wisdom from a new mom, with a fashion twist:
Babies be babies. They don't know how to do anything other than cry, coo, pee and poop. They definitely don't know how to sleep. When the poop hits the fan, take it as an excuse to make an outfit change for yourself and baby. Multiple outfit changes in one day, very glamorous, no?
Don't fight the baby. You won't win. Type A's take note- you have no rigid agenda to follow anymore. You will follow the lead of your baby. Or have a meltdown, of pure and utter frustration. Arriving fashionably late, is tres chic no? At any rate might be a good excuse to blend in with some neutrals and sneak into what ever event you are arriving at late!
And repeat after me- celebrities lose the weight because they have trainers. And dieticians. And nannies. Breast feeding does not equate to miraculous, spontaneous, weight loss. They also have stylists that help them find flattering clothes for this in between period. I have turned to the GAP and their constant markdowns.
So now that I have adopted this new fashion mantra, and accept that I can not reason with a baby, things are falling into a bit of a groove.
These leggings are a great post baby transitional item I bought while pregnant (non maternity wear again), that are great now that I still have the baby pounds to shed. I have been living in long, flowy tunics and layers these days. Any suggestions for other post baby clothing items that will make the in between time a little more bearable and not take a huge bite out of the budget? All ears!
