My acupuncturist spoke up the other day and said it looks like I finally got "my figure back". Then she told me about another client of hers that had a baby around the same time as hers who had said I had an excellent sense of style when she met my prior to the baby. I told her that was true...before the baby. She then informed me that I look just as good (body wise) as I did before, so I shouldn't be shy about dressing in more body conscience, stylish clothing now.
Now I'm starting to wonder just how crap I've been dressing since I had my child. I really don't have the budget I had to just buy myself a dress now and then that I used to. I guess that's not an excuse as I have a great eye for second hand clothing (having grown up in a Goodwill practically). Now most of my old clothes are still way too small and I've accepted that I was unhealthily thin before (and don't wish to be that size again). So, I find I'm often stuck with clothes a bit too small, way too big or way too stylish/dressy for what is my everyday. My old everyday was way different.
So, I'm wondering, what is your post-baby look? Have you figured out how to mix a bit of personal style with your casual mom clothing (if you are mostly a SAHM like me)? Have you just given up a bit? Or do you just not care anymore?
