Before I had Teagan I didn’t put too much thought into what I wore because I wasn’t chasing around a baby, bending over to change diapers, or cleaning up messes. Now, I have to be a little more selective and put some thought into my outfit choices.

Summers would be filled with my short, A-line dresses and my cute little jean shorts. This summer those aren’t quite as realistic so what’s a mom to do? Maxi or knee length dresses and some high-waisted shorts that aren’t too short are now my go to bottoms when we are out and about while some yoga pants or athletic shorts and tanks are my go to at home outfit.

While I was pregnant, the PinkBlush maternity brand was pretty much the only brand of clothes I wore. I just fell in love. They are all so cute but also super comfortable and great quality. Another great thing about their maternity clothes is they can be worn post pregnancy; and yes that means I totally still wear some of them and style them a little differently.

I have recently fell in love with their women’s shop. Same great quality and comfort. They are all totally functional and so many nursing friendly options as well. All their clothes are perfect for my new mom style!

Since I spent the better part of Teagan’s first year in their maternity or lounge clothes because I didn’t know what to wear I decided it was time to get two super cute pieces to make myself feel good. Since I now have some great date night pieces, maybe Cary and I can start dating each other again.

The first piece I got was this beautiful blouse. I didn’t have anything like it and I decided to get something that was a little outside of my comfort zone and I’m so happy I did. While it’s a little dressier, still so functional for us mama’s with a baby on our hip! You can shop this blouse here.

The second piece I got was this black dress. I have super long legs so the longer sides got me. I like short dresses but bending over with a now toddler makes that a task so this dress was a great mix of both. You can shop it here.

 

**I am 5’7″ and got a small in both pieces.
