Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by! I am so excited to share my first look since giving birth! I was super nervous to schedule a blog shoot since Charlee is too little to really have a consistent schedule. I sort of had to wing it timing wise! Luckily, the timing worked out and she happened to need to eat right before we started shooting so she was a happy little thing by the time we started shooting. I put her in her car seat and we went up to the roof to shoot this look. She was a dream! I thought I was in the clear when all of a sudden it started raining ugh. I was determined to get these pictures so we shot in the rain anyways. You do what you have to do with a newborn, am I right!?

Anyways, on to this look. How cool is this kimono?? I am sort of obsessed with it and have worn it multiple times since I got it last week. I have worn it paired with jeans, shorts and a maxi dress. I love it. I also took a trip to Club Monaco this week and invested in these M.I.H. jeans. I had never heard of this brand before but I really like the quality and the fit. I figured I deserved a nice pair of jeans that fit me so I splurged a bit on these. I have been able to get my pre-pregnancy jeans on but they aren’t the most comfortable at the moment so I got one size up for now. I figure I can take them to the tailor when I lose the rest of the weight. Last but not least, I wanted to talk about this awesome Lilac Maternity top. It’s a top that works during and after pregnancy. The top is nursing friendly and the material is stretchy so it accommodates a pregnant or flat belly :)!

I hope you guys have a great rest of your week! I’ll be revealing the nursery on the blog early next week so remember to stop back by!
