We all know that when you are pregnant for nine months, your post-partum belly doesn’t go back to normal right away. As I stated in last week’s post, it takes time. However, that doesn’t mean you need to be frumpy until your body gets back to pre-pregnancy bliss!
We all need lots of time to take care of baby and ourselves without stressing over our bodies and I want to help you look and feel great even as your body is in constant flux.
I have a few tips of what you should wear now that we are post-partum mommies.
1. Don’t try to fit in your pre-pregnancy clothes. You will get frustrated because they will not fit properly.
2. Don’t give away your clothes. Give your body time to heal and get back in shape.
3. Only wear items that fit you well, but don’t wear pregnancy clothes that are too large.
4. Wear clothes that will take attention away from your belly.
At this moment, blazers are my best friends! They add sophistication and the extra layer also makes you look taller if you’re wearing a long top or tunic. You can pair this look with fun accessories, tighter leggings, jeggings, or even your recently retired maternity skinny jeans (Let's be honest, you’re the only one that will know they’re maternity! There’s no shame in it.). Check out my look: I’m wearing a fabulous Balmain blazer with my go-to J-Brand jeans, a plain white top and pumps for a little pizzazz!
What do you think about the blazer look?
