It's a miracle! I'm back and had time to not only fix my hair & make-up but get dressed and take 7.5 minutes to take photos!
Every time I post a photo on instagram recently, I get a few "you don't look like you just had a baby" comments. While those are entirely nice & flattering things to say and are much appreciated, just know that being a personal shopper ((and a woman who loves styling)) gives me a few tricks up my sleeve that helps me disguise problem areas in a ((hopefully)) effortless way. I'm going to try to focus on a postpartum styling tip each time I do an outfit schmoutfit for a little while, but hopefully the outfit inspiration will be relevant whether you have a mama pouch to disguise or not. For the record, I love calling it a mama pouch because it reminds me of kangaroos and kangaroos are the only animal I don't mind being compared to. They stand tall, are pretty darn cute, I love that they have a little pouch for their babies & I secretly think they're the inspiration behind baby wraps ;) Okay, this post isn't about kangaroos, y'all.
Just a few weeks after you have your little one, you should be able to see your natural waist come back little by little. In order to hide the little bump you have remaining, wear a maxi skirt that flows down and takes the eye away from your midsection. For extra help, use the shirting trend to your advantage by tying a chambray button down or a fun button up blouse at the your waist to accentuate that you still have your figure! This top is such a great layering piece, by the way. A statement necklace also helps to draw the eye up and disguise if your ((ahem)) knockers are larger than anticipated and pulling at a button or two. Not that this happened to me or anything. *wink*
