getting dressed after having a baby sounds so exciting. yay no more maternity clothes! wrong. at least, wrong for a little while. you're not gonna be jumping back in to those super skinny pre-pregnancy jeans right away. so i've put together a little round-up of what's worked for me post-baby.
button down shirts. luckily they're so popular right now so you're still in style and have easy access for nursing. win-win! i love these from the gap. they actually fit in my shoulders which is a major problem for me. i love a fun gap denim shirt or this stripe shirt. worn over this lace nursing bra from motherhood maternity (by jessica simpson), you don't even feel like you just had a baby. well, maybe you feel like it, but you still look great!
another life saver is boyfriend jeans. also super popular right now, they're the perfect post-pregnancy jean. while i was pregnant i bought two new non-maternity jeans: one a size up and one two sizes up. they fit up until the last couple of months and now, they're still my go-to jeans. they're comfortable and not too constricting which is what every new mama is looking for.
a few stretchy and forgiving t-shirts and tanks, like this madewell tank are great as well. not too tight but still very flattering.
getting dressed after having a baby is not the most fun thing in the world. it can be really frustrating trying to look good when you really don't feel like it. but, i've found, getting up and getting dressed in the morning, really helps get the day going and usually puts me in a better mood. but some days, you just need to hang out in sweats all day and snuggle with that new baby!
