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.

  • It's been over a week since I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and having to start what feels like an extreme diet list of "no's" and I started out feeling so defeated. The first few days I felt awful. Headaches to the point of nausea and vomiting as my body was detoxing all the things I now couldn't have. Today I'm feeling like I'm getting so much energy, I don't feel as foggy or heavy with that blah feeling. I have been really strict and not "cheated" because cheating now feels like I'm failing myself and my health. Ironically enough, I'm eating MORE at every meal and drinking more water. I've been using my essential oils as the doctors ordered on my thyroid area as well as for other wellness purposes, cooking, cleaning and in my beauty regimen. I feel like the direction of this page and my blog is now shifting. It will always serve as a place to share my motherhood journey but part of that journey is now much more about health and wellness and less about testing and reviewing free stuff. I'm still genuinely angry and upset about the diagnosis but sometimes the bad stuff we go through serves to be beautiful life lessons and good in the end. Here's to one week down and forever to go to restoring my health and life from the inside out! I hope everyone has a great weekend☀️
  • Happy Birthday my sweet KDK! Things sure have changed over the years but one thing that hasn't is what an amazing person and friend you are. Thank you for always listening to me rant, being there unconditionally, and bringing the sunshine and happiness to every early morning! I hope today is as special as you are 😘😘
  • I received some pretty devastating news regarding my health this past week. While it's left me feeling so sad, it's also been a wonderful reminder that we are only given one body to live this amazing life and we need to treat it that way. I decided to open up #ontheblog about the whole ordeal because it's too long of a story for an Instagram post. As @s.chilva would say "one life, one chance." 💕
  • My heart is so heavy with the news from Las Vegas today. I feel sad that my sweet daughter is growing up in a world so full of hate. We are not born to hate. Hate is a learned behavior. Remember that our children are watching every single thing we do and listening to every word we say and from us is where they will either learn to love and respect everyone equally or not. I hope that Teagan always treats everyone how she wants to be treated. 💕 #prayforvegas .
