We all have those outfits that make us feel good; those pieces we automatically gravitate towards even when we’re on day 7 of dry shampoo (moms, you know what I’m talking about) and that leave us with a sense of confidence in ourselves.
Personally, that’s something that’s really resonated with me as I’ve begun this journey of motherhood to two. My first pregnancy was a breeze compared to the second. I gained about 15 pounds less and got away without a single stretch mark the first time. I didn’t experience any of the chronic pelvic pain I had with my second from 28 weeks on. And although the recovery has been a million times easier the second time around- thanks to an easy labor and delivery- I won’t lie that I also feel a million times worse about my body.
So, for me, while I may be foregoing bikinis and mini dresses while I work on getting healthy, I’ve always felt the greatest sense of confidence in a pretty cardigan, feminine top, skinny jeans and some booties. All of these pieces together give me confidence in my body, and at the end of the day, what’s fashion if it doesn’t make you feel good about yourself?
That said, I was gifted this pretty suede cardigan and lace tank combo from the lovely girls at Bohochic Boutique. I’ve been loving all of the textures emerging from winter to spring, and wouldn’t you know that suede and lace are at the top of my list. If you get a moment, be sure to check out their Instagram shop as they’re constantly bringing in the cuuuuuutest and most affordable merchandise! My jeans were a $20 score from one of my favorite recent boutique finds, and you guys have already seen me rave about these ridiculously comfy booties here and here.
What fashion pieces give you confidence? Do you have an outfit style you automatically gravitate towards? I’d love to know!
