I have always been very lucky with my weight. I have a small frame and a fast metabolism. The only time I ever had any significant weight gain was the year I worked at The Olive Garden. What can I say? Sista like a breadstick.
Then when I was pregnant I went all Kate Hudson and became the fat, jolly pregnant woman. I was like Santa but with better sweats. When I was pregnant clothes didn't matter cause everything looks cute with a baby belly.
Now...well...now I have a whole new relationship with clothing. Pregnancy just changes you. I don't mean to scare any of you who haven't had babies yet but I am just being honest. It gives you glorious C cup breasts and then just takes them back again. All you are left with is your old, flat chest and a butt you barely recognize. I use to wonder why I couldn't "shake my booty" and I now realize it was because I had no booty to shake. Thank you pregnancy for fixing that for me.
Now don't get me wrong I am certainly not complaining about being fat. I know I am am very luck to lose as much weight as I have and blah, blah, blah but...something is different. My body, my hormones, my larger derriere, basically my whole life, it's all different. So now I have to figure out how to dress for this new life and body without feeling weird or blue about my outfit.
A mom uniform, if you will. So for summer I am going with the KISS motto:
keep it simple stupid*
I'm thinking long, flowy skirts, sandals, and possibly a floppy hat? I'm dubbing this style
The Preppy Hippie
it's Gap meets Forever 21
Here is some inspiration I have floating around in my head. Of course to actually buy any of it I'm gonna have to make some money but I will think about that later. Right now it's just me and pinterest. Cause pinning clothes is way more fun then actually trying something on.
*I couldn't believe my luck when I wondered onto Gap.com I discovered their summer motto was also keep it simple! Does this mean I am on the right track?
