Motherhood Musings: Getting Dressed

Monday, June 12, 2017

If you're reading this, it should come as no surprise that I love clothes (hey, it is a style blog, after all). But outfits and talk of clothes have been notably absent these past few months. For one very cute reason, of course! 
Okay. Not fair to blame that on the baby, especially when it is only half true. Having a baby means dealing with a changed body, a wardrobe that doesn't quite fit and new demands on the outfits you wear.

In all fairness, my body has returned to pre-pregnancy weight, thanks mostly to my diabetes, for both good (healthy eating) and not-so-good (hello, fluctuating insulin needs) reasons. But fitting back into the clothes I had had before wasn't as much of a relief as I thought it would be. What I needed my clothes for had changed.

I needed to be able to get down on the floor to play. I needed comfort. I needed everything to machine washable. I mean, I wanted all those things for my wardrobe before, but now its necessity.  There's a temptation to just roll out of bed and be in T-shirts and pajama pants all day, but that's not living. So here are some of the outfits I've been trying out as a mother. Documenting what both Ellis and I are wearing has been a reason for me to stretch my sartorial creativity just a bit more and wear clothes that make me feel like myself, while still meeting the needs of my new role as mama.
