I’mmm baaackk! YAY! This might be a longer post about one, this outfit but also where I wore this outfit too. It was really funny to take an outfit picture after I hadn’t taken any in over a month. A month! Can you believe that? I have been taking a picture almost everyday for 1.5 years so it was really kinda weird to stop for so long. haha don’t get me wrong there was no way I felt like getting dressed in the last month though either. I gained a total of 30 pounds during my pregnancy and I can happily say all but 10 have come off own their own so far. While I am feeling super skinny now compared to being pregnant my old clothes still aren’t fitting quite right. 10 pounds is still 10 pounds and can make clothes feel a little snug still, especially when I think half of that 10 pounds is in my boobs.
For me the perfect way to cure the new momma blues of a post pregnancy body was to buy a new fabulous outfit that fit my body at the stage it was now. No trying to squeeze into old clothes or feeling bad for still wearing maternity clothes (which I still do and will continue to do for sometime I am sure- soo comfy those elastic waistbands!) I had the chance to have a special first night away from baby last week and I wanted to get an outfit that made me feel like a million dollars. I am happy to say that this outfit did just that. I think it might be my favorite outfit ever. haha maybe its just cause I haven’t been able to dress like this in almost a year but its still a pretty sweet fall outfit. I loved how all the colors and patterns went together. The mustard yellow with the bright orange/coral I think were just awesome. Plus how cool that I found matching nail polish. I am so nerdy!

Last Thursday Punky and Melissa hosted another fabulous clothing swap. Those Swapaholic girls really know how to throw a party!! Even ABC nightline came out to film these 2 fabulous ladies. Here’s hoping I make it on to TV too!! There was wine, friends, crazy clothes swapping and a very fashionable blogger fashion show. It was my first night away from Rowan and I missed her like crazy, but it was so great to get out, get a little break and spend the evening with my dear friends. Julie, Punky and I all seemed to have the same color scheme in mind that night! Great minds think a like I guess…
