Completed a closet clean out this weekend. Kind of depressing really, but good to get all the maternity gear out and have a blank slate of sorts.
I also had to pack away some of the baby items already. It's a good thing she is out of preemie gear but breaks your heart in two at the same time that she is growing so fast! How is this already possible?
Between your usual clothes and the maternity gear is this strange post pregnancy purgatory, which I currently roam. It is fashionless. Plain. And you don't want to really spend any money to make it anything other than that, because the goal is to fit back into your pre-pregnancy skinnies, right?
So I caved and bought some jeans- these slouchy boyfriend type jeans from Anthropologie. I am not terribly familiar with the line, Level 99, but I have been happy with the fit. This pair forms the foundation for my daily outfit. Funny how swapping out slippers for heels will instantly change a look.
Now, from the closet clean out and sorted into the 'maybe' pile are these Marant heels. I love the idea of these heels but if I am being honest they have always been a little big for me. I bought them in a flurry of they are SO on sale, how could I not? It was between these and the first edition of the Marant sneaker wedge a few years ago.....in retrospect, I chose poorly! Clearly sneakers will feature predominantly in my new life with babe and man, it would have been nice to have predicted that hit. Anyone found any full proof methods for making a pair just a smidge too big fit? Heel liners, cotton ball in the toes, have not worked here. Anything a cobbler can do? Otherwise I fear these are on the chopping block too!
