I'm so thrilled to be back in action (aka back in normal clothes). I love the challenge of styling maternity outfits, but I'll be the first to admit it's much easier to have an entire wardrobe of non-maternity clothes at my disposal. Not that I can really wear all of my clothes; some don't fit just yet and I have to wear nursing-accessible tops or dresses. So really I can't wear much of anything, to be honest. All in good time.
Most of you have likely seen or heard somewhere in the social media sphere (or even first-hand from moi) that little Parker was born on August 5th. It was a tough labor, much, much tougher than my labor with Sylvie. I'll spare you the birth story and the gory details; suffice it to say that none of it matters except that I have a darling little boy whom we all adore. Sylvie is beyond smitten with him, and she's adapted to the change much more easily than I anticipated. I'm still waiting for the ball to drop, but in the meantime, I'm soaking up Sylvie's love for Parker, and the fact that he pretty much sleeps through the night and has since he was born. For those of you that know my sleep history with Sylvie, you know that Aaron and I DESERVE a good sleeper. I have no idea if it'll continue, but I'm pretty well rested for being the mother of a newborn. Hallelujah!
I got this Rebecca Minkoff chevron bag at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I've linked it below (shown in black) as well as added links to less expensive versions. Oxblood/maroon are hot for fall!
All of the items I'm wearing are ancient, save the skirt, which is currently on sale at H & M online for $29. I couldn't link it below, so click here to view. What are you waiting for (and let me tell you...if it's flattering on me several weeks after giving birth, it will be flattering on you, too!)?
