Like I said in my last ‘Finding My Mom Style’ post, before Teagan I never put much thought into what I wore because I didn’t need to. I could wear what I wanted and didn’t have to worry about functionality. After having a baby I think a lot of women choose function over style which I completely understand; I did that too for the better half of Teagan’s first year. What I’ve come to realize over the last several months is you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

Finding stylish yet functional clothing can be super easy if you are looking in the right places. I have been obsessed with PinkBlush since my pregnancy and their clothes transition really well into motherhood. I will do a post in the future on how I have carried my maternity clothing into motherhood but this post is about two great pieces I got that I think check both of my boxes when I look for my new everyday “mom clothes”.

The first piece is this beautiful striped maxi dress. My husband hates maxi’s but honestly, they just make sense for my life right now. Its summer, I want to wear dresses right now but I also don’t want to run the risk of Teagan lifting up my dress and showing the world where she came from, if you know what I mean.

I got the small and the length is perfect. I am 5’7” just so you have an idea. I have a very narrow figure, I wasn’t blessed with that beautiful hourglass figure so I personally don’t think this is the most flattering dress on me just because it isn’t fitted in the waist area but it’s so super comfortable and makes moving about with a toddler easy. If I wanted to give it a more fitted look it would be easy to just add a belt or maybe a little jean jacket and bam, my narrow frame as a figure.

The second piece I got was this distressed crisscross neck top. When I saw it online I just loved it because it looked a little more edgy and I don’t have anything like it. It says it’s a light blue but in person it’s more of a mint color which I was really excited about because that’s my favorite.

I love this whole crisscross trend happening right now. I think it’s just really flattering on everyone. This shirt is really lightweight and super soft. You can wear it with anything; jean shorts, white jeans, really anything. It’s not tight or form fitting which is perfect for me because I’m not trying to put my mom bod on display. It’s just a really great tee that just has that little something extra.

PinkBlush has really become my go to for all types of clothing. I feel like it’s evolving with my life from maternity into postpartum and now into life with a toddler. They have something for everyone, no matter what stage of life you are in or what size you are.

This gown and hat set and matching lovey is from @themotherbabybond is literally the softest piece of clothing Beau has. The best part is it has magnetic closures; talk about easy 3am diaper changes! Their shop has sooo many options and prints! Go support the sweetest mother/daughter duo 💕
  • While I love precious posed photos, these are the kinds of photos I cherish the most. The ones that capture us just being us. Real life...Teagan wanted nothing to do with pictures that day and of course, Beau, the milk monster wanted to eat but all of that ended up resulting in this moment. I’m so grateful for @celticgrayphotography always being kind and patient with us and capturing the best of us!
  • Oh Beau, you’ve completely stolen our hearts 💙 #gerberphotosearch2018 #beaumontgomeryg
  • One of Teagan’s school pictures. I cannot take this. Yes, I’m crying 😭 she’s so beautiful and growing up right before my very eyes! 😍
  • Currently in the newborn haze. I won’t lie, a lot of days I miss lunch or find myself right here eating lunch on the floor keeping a newborn content while trying to entertain a toddler. Luckily, @ReadyPacFoods makes it super easy for me to eat while on the go and also get a healthy option in with these Bistro Single-Serve Salads. #WePackedYouLunch #sponsored
  • Sometimes I just stare at him and want to cry because I know this season of life is going to go so fast. Stay little my sweet Beau 💙 #beaumontgomeryg
  • I promise she really does love him! Lots of adjustments happening over here but we are all surviving one meltdown at a time 💕💙 #gaskellrascals
  • One week as a family of 4 and nothing has ever felt so right ☺️ #gaskellrascals 📷: @celticgrayphotography
