Adventures in post baby dressing. It necessitates some shopping. Your maternity clothes are too big. Your normal clothes are too small. So make like goldilocks and good luck finding something that is just right, for right now.
For the in between, I have turned to H&M and Zara. I don't want to go fast fashion, but I also don't want to invest in anything that might not fit in a few months. This maxi is a great H&M score for the right now, 'me'. It rang in under $20.00 and feels like a totally luxe material, though, you know it isn't. I'll take the warmer weather we have enjoyed this month if it means I can scrape by wearing maxis and sandals a little longer. This will also look great layered up with a chunky sweater and some boots, no?
Other adventures in post baby-ness. I took the plunge and signed up with a trainer for a few months. If success in sessions is measured in pain, then today must have been an off the charts successful. I am laying off the diary as well, doctors orders! Our lady D has a cow's milk allergy. This has been a blessing and a curse. It has jump started a health kick for me, exploring a dairy free life but it has also left me wondering what else to eat besides fruits and veggies. Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook has been a pretty interesting resource but I am on the look out for new ideas and new recipes. Help!
At least non of my cocktails involve dairy products......
