Fashion Go-Tos: 4 Pieces to Inspire Confidence

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!

  1. You look gorgeous in everything lady but I really really like those jeans! What a cool design. And, that cardi is really unique. I also have had a hard time with my postpartum body and I’m not one of those people who bounces back after pregnancy- I like french fries too much. But, girl- I wouldn’t know you just had a baby- it feels differently when we look at ourselves in the mirror than how others see us! <3 Jamie

  2. You are a very stylish and pretty mom! You rocked those heels! <3 The outfit I usually wear when I go out now that I am a mom of two consists of these pieces: leggings/ jeans, basic v-neck shirt, combat boots, and my winter coat. I just like to accessorize with artsy earrings.

  3. You look amazing! I can totally relate to the post-preg body blues, currently in the depths of it myself and panicking about what to wear to the little one’s christening in April! Ahhh.

  4. I am in love with that cardi! The way it looks like a blazer just gives it instant style and structure, even with its flowy feel. Our bodies change so much with pregnancy and its so important to dress in whatever way makes YOU feel gorgeous – and this, girl, is stunning!

  5. I love your outfit and the color of the cardigan is very unique. My favorite go to outfit is skinny jeans, ankle boots (I like some height) and a long flowy top 🙂

  6. I know what you are talking about. It was time when I forgot what is it to dress up the way I would enjoy my body. With the second kid I gained 60 lb. and and it took me almost two years to get back in shape- well, stretch marks didn’t go anywhere .

  7. I really like your style – so effort-less cool and chic 🙂 Also (I have been looking more into photography recently), your photos and filter / editing is awesome – love the cool tones.

  8. I do agree with you when you said that there are clothes that make us feel good and gives us confidence even in our off days. The only thing is that I am not sure if my sense of style really is good. I feel confident in the clothing, and I like it, but it seems as if there is something wrong or missing. It might be a good idea to consult a fashion magazine for this to see what I’m missing. Thanks!
