{Thrifted shirt, Skirt c/o eShakti, old Target shoes)

Becoming a mom has definitely changed the clothes I reach for in the mornings. As I’ve gone thru the new mom transition, I find myself constantly reaching for the same type of outfit each day. This outfit is my new go-to:

  • Patterned button up shirt: The pattern hides spit up marks, because just when you least expect it, he will nail you with that smelly slime. And button up for easy access to the ladies for breastfeeding.
  • Easy to wash skirt: Let’s face it, everything needs to be easy to wash. But I love wearing skirts right now! Pregnancy has made it so none of my pants fit. Not. One. Pair. Even pants that fit me when I was a heavier weight than I am now don’t fit. And because every day my body seems to be changing, I don’t want to buy anything. So skirts it is! And really, when you’re wearing a skirt, you still feel lovely even if you’re covered in baby fluids.
  • Comfy shoes: Because hauling around this chubby boy in his carseat carrier is hard work. Seriously! You should see my right tricep.

And now let’s talk about my boy’s hair. That’s its natural state. Usually I push it into a little mow hawk, but this day I decided to let it go au naturale. And as you can see, Mr. Personality was not in the mood to smile for the camera. Actually, come to think of it, this kid is all smiles until I pull out a camera. The second he sees it, he turnes to stone. Little booger. Someday I’ll catch that big gummy smile.

Here’s the adorable skirt Jennifer made me! She did such a great job! Poor girl was assigned to make something for someone who still has the leftover pregnancy chub in strange places. But the skirt fits PERFECT and it has some stretch so it’s really great for this awkward body shape time. I love this skirt! Go check out her tutorial here!  Also, head over to see Miriam wearing my skirt!

Wasn’t this swap fun?! Did this inspire you as much as it did me? I can’t wait to get some more trousers and cut them up!
