Like, after the Bump

So yeah, you don't magically drop all your baby weight after giving birth. Imagine that?! 

I wanted to post an outfit shot of the truth- still rocking my maternity jeans and a baggy t-shirt. And sneakers.

But you know what, I can deal with it. I have my hands full with Lady D. And truth be told, wardrobe options are limited with nursing. Not much glamorous about that.

The Mr, Lady D, and I made it out of the house this weekend for a stroll- to look for some post-partum friendly clothing options (no such luck, husband bought more than I did), and mainly to just practice with the car seat, stroller, and all this new gear that is so confusing. Need to enjoy these last days of summer! Gear and all.

I have been watching the glam-goings-on of NYFW from afar, babe in lap. I'll post a few of my faves this week, a little fashionanle inspiration for me for the season, and my shape up.

Special Delivery: Baby Daphne!

We had a very special delivery this week, baby Daphne decided to join us a little early (just like her mama....tis always better to be early than late).

 

Husband and I are learning many things, among them:

Poop happens; and it can actually be pretty funny. 

We have amazing friends, family, and neighbors, who have been generous, thoughtful, and supportive beyond measure.

Never underestimate the power of a casserole.

 Baby fashion is more important to me than NYFW.

We are so very lucky.

 

Back to the trenches, I'll report back on our experiments in sleep deprivation soon!

 

XOXO

Dressing the Baby Bump: Week 38 Maternity Style

Above: Tibi dress via TJ Maxx (this season's Tibi maxi), J Crew necklace (similar here), layered with turquoise necklace (made by my mother), Proenza Schouler bag, Ray Ban sunglasses

 

You may recognize this dress from my recent baby shower. It deserved a second maternity wear though, so I donned it out for a weekend of housewarming, BBQ's, and parties. 

Another non-maternity purchase, made a size up, and one that will definitely be tailored post baby. I tried on a few sizes before purchasing and the only variable seemed to be the bust, the bottom being just full of material and generously cut.

I dressed it down with some sandals and aviators for the weekend outings. The beauty of a black maxi, dressy, casual, layered, on it's own, it is just so darn versatile. It was also a steal from TJ Maxx, which makes it all the better. 

I'd complain about baby Z's refusal to leave her cozy abode, pregnancy symptoms, blah, blah, blah, but I think we are all tired of that!! I can not wait to get back into my old clothes and some new fall purchases (i.e. motivation!). Major post baby motivation coming by the way of these Saint Laurent heels, which I just picked up. Date night with hubs, or pushing the damn stroller, I will be wearing these non stop.
