My Everyday Style | 08.12.13


You know that movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back? haha. I feel like that could be the title for this outfit post. I will be honest and say I’ve felt really insecure in pictures since having Finley. Well, maybe insecure isn’t the right word. I just haven’t been comfortable in my own skin I guess. A bit of that had to with baby weight but it also had to do with just getting use to this new role of being a Mom of two. Over the last few weeks a bit more of the baby weight has come off finally, but more importantly I feel like we are hitting our stride around here. We are entering into that stage where things feel normal again. I don’t quite know how to explain it other than I am feeling good. I was really nervous about going to the conference and having to get all dressed up and be presentable all weekend long. I use to love stuff like that, but that’s just not my day to day anymore. I was afraid I was going to feel so out of place and uncomfortable. I packed my outfits hoping I would still like them when I got there, and decided to let go of all the negativity I was holding on to. I was going to be proud of the weight, shape, and look of my 2 baby body and I was going to own every outfit I brought. I decided I was just going to be happy. And you know what? Sometimes you just need a good kick in the pants (or change of attitude) and a reason to wear some super awesome heels to make you feel like yourself again.

I found this dress at Marshalls and fell in love. I decided to make it feel a little bit more youthful and modern by adding a sheer button up underneath it. Thanks to Lulu’s for sending me a killer necklace and heels to complete the outfit!
