I obsess over one thing in phases. I'm the kind of person who will buy the same thing in different colours because I live in the perpetual fear of "I might never find it again." I'm also the kind of person who loses sleep over that one thing I didn't buy but more on that later.
I have never worn fitted clothes to begin with and post baby that's been quite a boon. While I'm yet to fit into anything with buttons, elastic waists are an invention I thank God for everyday. Here's a couple of fashion lessons I learnt post my darling baby.
Lesson no. 1: Don't get disheartened and throw away your old wardrobe: Try everything and what really doesn't fit, put it away for a while and you will find loads of things that still fit you.
Lesson no. 2: Recycle your old wardrobe to fit the new you: If that shirt doesn't button up, wear it a a jacket over the stretchy tee, if that top shows off a few bulges, pair it with a lightweight cape to hide those.
Lesson no. 3: Don't give up! As a new mom you are tired and have to get practical, prepare for hours to get out of the house even for a while, swap your designer bag for the diaper bag but the key is to keep the excitement up. Now that the baby is a part of your life from hereon, accept it and move on. Don't stop dressing up just because you're tired and the baby will wrinkle your fabric or spit on it anyway :) This will make you feel so much better about yourself too.
We were going to a friend's house party near by and this is what I wore (of course, I swapped this bag with the diaper bag but these are small sacrifices for my big smiling bundle of joy)
