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.

  • We head to the Outer Banks tomorrow morning and we are ready for some sunshine and beach time! I’m excited we have safe, clean products to bring along that not only protect our skin but also keep our sleep routine normal in a new place. On a serious note, I really do think as a whole we all try to minimize the level of what our bodies are exposed to and want to ignore that fact. That is until we are forced to pay more attention, for example, when we are pregnant or have a little one at home or get sick or someone in our family dies. Until then, we continue to burn toxic candles, clean with horrible products, eat terribly, not take quality supplements. Basically not adequately supporting our body to function at the highest level. I’ll be the first to say I ignored all of these things but I’m a firm believer that if you know better, you do better! I want everyone to have access to amazing products. I want everyone to have an oil to grab when they feel like they need some support. Starting your oils journey can be scary, overwhelming and confusing but you are worth that. Your body is worth it. Your family is worth it! And I promise, once you start it’s so.dang.easy #joinmyoilstribe
  • Yesterday was a day to say the least. Being 25 weeks pregnant and being a full time mom to a hyper, strong willed toddler is not for the faint of heart. Not to mention carrying around her 30lbs all over the place is rough on my body. Needless to say it was perfect timing to go back to @massagehope for another prenatal massage. This time I asked Karlee to focus on my mid/upper back. I didn’t realize how much tension I was carrying in that area until she started working on it. Today I feel like a new person and a recharged mama and I’m so thankful! Whether you are pregnant or just looking to treat yourself to some self care, I highly recommend @massagehope as they offer many types of massages. If you are local, please go give them a try and use discount code “Jennifer” for 10% off any massage 💆
