Thank you for your blog! I started reading it when I first got pregnant and it gave me hope that motherhood didn't mean instantly dowdy and a lifetime of ill fitting jeans. Well, now my baby is here and your recent posts (leggings, docs) inspired me to bust out my leggings and combat boots. These *may* be my maternity leggings and this sweater from gap is longer in back than in front- perfect for providing the necessary bum coverage. I also like how loose it is- I'm only eleven weeks postpartum so the loose fit is perfect for lifting up to breastfeed, hiding a poochy tummy, and disguising the uneven silhouette that bunched up breast pads give you. The combat boots are nice because in my mind they are decidedly not "mom shoes" and with a new baby I need a little something to remind me that I'm still me and not just a shushing milk machine.
Again thanks for the inspiration. Feeling stylish helps make me even more confident as a mama. Keep killing cancer!
Alena – thanks for sending in these fabulous pics!! I especially love the lady-like bag with the combat boots, and your punky haircut is giving me hope in the months ahead. Chick, you look awesome.
