Nothing fits after having Max. Nothing. Well my maternity yoga pants still do, but those don’t count. Anyway, I eventually gave in and went and spent about $20 at a thrift store and purchased some roomy button up tops and some skirts to get me thru this weird body shaped time (There’s no way you’re going to get me to try on a pair of jeans right now. No.Way.). During my mini shopping spree, I purchased this pink skirt. It has been an after-baby-wardrobe lifesaver. However, after wearing it for about a month, I realized it was the same color as Pepto Bismol. Never a good thing. And in true “Krista” style, I dyed it. The tag was worn out and I couldn’t tell what the fabric contents were, so this became a bit of a dyeing risk. But I stuck my Peptoey pink skirt in a bucket of dark brown Rit dye and was pleasantly surprised. The skirt must have been a cotton/poly blend, because not all of the fibers dyed. But I love the mauvey color I ended up with! Odds are, if you see me out and about, I will either have this skirt or my yoga pants on. I know my old clothes will eventually fit, but goodness is it hard to find things to wear after having a baby! Buuuut Mason just handed me an almond Snickers bar that I just downed while typing this. So I guess I can’t complain too much.
