Dress-up, post-baby fashion post and my birthday weekend.
I busted someone smiling this week too. I know, it’s just dreams or gas or whatever they say but it was still pretty damn cute if you ask me. And so is this diaper cover and headband she was rocking as well. The Hair Bow Company is offering you all 10% off with the code “hiccups”… so go get some goodies for the kiddos 🙂
And even I decided to try and take a few outfit pictures. I’m three weeks postpartum today and do I feel great? Hell no. I’m down 21 pounds but that means I still have 27 to lose and to be honest, I was a little afraid to get in front of the camera.

But as you know, I’m as real as it gets (I’M ON A BOAT… sorry, had to throw that in there) so I wanted to show you what a real person looks like three weeks after giving birth. I keep seeing girls bounce back right away and unfortunately, it’s not the case for everyone. I know I will get there but for now, this is me and I have to learn to embrace it.
For me, black is where it’s at. I used to be afraid to mix black and brown and now I love it. Do I feel a little rebellious? Maybe. But that’s what I love about fashion; you can make it your own and do whatever you want. I’m still wearing maternity leggings and some tops because that is what I feel most comfortable in. Some pre-pregnancy tops fit me well and others don’t and until I feel 100% comfortable, I couldn’t care less whether I wear maternity or non-maternity items.
This adorable cardigan can be found on Pink Slate Boutique. I found them on Facebook and fell in love instantly. They have an adorable selection and with spring right around the corner, you may want to snag some new additions to your wardrobe!
And last but not least, my birthday is tomorrow… and I’ll be 27 years old friends. Do I have anything planned? No. Not even a damn dinner out. I guess that’s what happens when you start getting old and have babies close to your birthday. Oh well, guess I’ll start saving up for my Dirty Thirty because I can promise you, I will NOT be pregnant then!
So since it’s my birthday weekend, I’m linking up with Whit for #backthatazzup. Since I’m not doing anything, maybe I’ll drink some wine and have my own little birthday dance party in my living room tomorrow. If Fiddy Cent says to do so, then do so I will.
