Almost four months later, I finally feel like I’m getting energy back to get dressed (most days), but in the early early stages of motherhood, that simply wasn’t the case. I lived in comfy loungewear and honestly didn’t even deal with jeans for at least a few weeks. And while that was comfy and all, I did occasionally miss, you know, looking decent.
Eventually, I got the hang of getting dressed for certain occasions like church, meetings, or even a coffee run with Austin and George. Obviously as a new mama, you’re healing and are somewhat uncomfortable and we won’t even get into waistbands. I lived in this combination – flowy midi dress, oversized linen blazer, slides, and a hat (let’s be real, my hair was rarely clean) – and felt good in it. It was equal parts comfortable and cute and it gave me confidence in leaving the house.
If you’re a new mama or soon-to-be, I definitely suggest a similar combination.
I’ll link a few similar dresses that I love below. Some are nursing-friendly if you’re going that route, too.
