Attempting outfit photos again

I feel like I had to rediscover my sense of style after I had Gwen. There were only so many things that still fit me, postpartum. It's not so fun having nothing to wear that makes you feel confident, when all you want to do is feel confident in yourself as a new mother. When Gwen was a few weeks old, my mother-in-law came to visit. I expressed my (physical and spiritual) need for new clothes, so off to Target we went. That first shopping trip post baby, with the help of Ryan's mom, was just what I needed. I remember feeling rejuvenated with my stack of new clothes, including a nursing friendly dress. There are so many stylistic sacrifices to be made if you choose to breastfeed.
Although I initially revamped my wardrobe, I still wasn't feeling up to recording my outfits like I once had. I honestly kind of forgot about outfit posts and instead obsessed over photo after photo of my cool, new baby. But lately I've missed this aspect of my blog. I remembered how fun it is to get ready, pick a location, take photos with my tripod (or with the help of my husband)- the whole ordeal. As you can see, the location of these photos is not the coolest. I hope to find some neat (hopefully secluded) locations around town to take photos. I realize that once the summer heat hits us I may not want to take as many photos outside, so we'll see how this goes. 


  1. Love that dress! I was going to buy it this weekend for my post breastfeeding days, but that won't be for a while so I passed on it. Looks super cute on you!

    1. Ha! I'm still breastfeeding too, so I only wore this dress while we were out for a few hours that day. I couldn't pass it up at 50% off!

  2. I remember getting so excited when I could wear my normal clothes again and then realizing I still couldn't wear any dresses and being so bummed! Haha good thing I like BFing!

  3. Cute outfit! I love the red shoes with the dress.
