Goodness. Could Grace get any cuter?
After our recent article on puffer vests, Grace wrote:
I was SO excited to see your post on puffers following your post on maternity coats because vests have been a wardrobe staple/workhorse for me all winter. I had my third baby on December 30th and didn’t want to buy a maternity coat (so I didn’t) but lived in a slew of vests (some puffy and some faux furry) that I found on eBay (all for less than $10!). Hopefully I’m not the only pregnant lady that looks pregnant around the lovely handles (which is why I was so convinced I was having a GIRL …. not the case!) but a vest really helps that situation out so very nicely.
Um. Wow. Pregnancy induced love-handles? Yeah. I knew them well. You make a really, really good point, Grace.
It’s also hard to argue with someone looking that cute at 32 weeks pregnant. Or, uh, 37:
And Grace continues:
There is nothing more friendly and forgiving to the gelatinous mess of the postpartum tummy than a zipped up puffer. I don’t leave the house without one … seriously.
Sing it, Sister. You look AMAZING. Here’s a few more puffer vest styling ideas from my true post-partum days (although, in mine I’m 18 months pp, and above Grace is only 2 weeks pp. Same diff, right? Snort.). Check out our other ideas for styling a postpartum body!
Grace, thanks so much for sending in pics! If you want to see more of Grace, head on over to Camp Patton. It’s awesome. I would’ve published this post 20 min sooner, but I got sucked in reading. She’s so funny.
