It took almost a month for me to get comfortable taking Beckett outside…maybe it was because she was a preemie and was so tiny she didn’t really fit in her stroller, car seat or baby carrier, but it’s more likely that I am a crazed and overprotective parent and taking her outside meant germs, bugs, people who want to look at her or even worse…touch her!
Yea, I’ll admit it – becoming a parent has made me so much more aware of EVERYTHING, has brought out my OCD tendencies even more, and dare I even say – it’s changed my style and fashion?!
For now, I’m in flats more often than heels (but don’t get me wrong, I still love my heels), and I haven’t exactly lost all my pregnancy weight yet, so I’m stuck in between not fitting in the clothes I bought for pregnancy, and not fitting in the clothes from before I was pregnant. I’ve been getting a few items here and there that fit my current size, but I’m also not breaking the bank because inevitably my body shape is going to continue to change over the next few months so things I buy now might now fit next month.
One thing I couldn’t pass up on are these shorts – and y’all know, I’m not one to wear a lot of shorts. There are a few prints that are everywhere this summer – palm leaf print and floral print (or in this case, embroidered). And I’m particularly obsessed with both! Plus it’s not hard to be obsessed with something that’s only $14, right?!
Now, while I wait for my body to sort itself out after the trauma of birth, I’ll just continue to buy things I know will fit regardless…shoes 🙂
