during pregnancy, i fantasized about wearing normal clothes again postpartum. however, i didn’t count on one thing that probably should have been obvious:
|in lululemons + one of my most forgiving tees
this doesn’t exactly make me want to shop. not because i don’t want to dress my current form in something other than jeans/leggings and tees [i do!], but because i am assuming [???] that my body is still in a state of flux. as hormones shift and muscles tighten, i expect that my size will probably change over the next few months.
so, i’ve resigned myself to a pretty boring wardrobe for the next couple of months [probably for the summer]. i’ll pick up a few fun t-shirts and perhaps some fun shoes/accessories, but leave the dress shopping for the future. and i’ll be mainly sticking to the sale rack — no point in investment purchases now, really.
finally, i’m definitely not going to throw away my previous wardrobe, but i need to organize my closet so that i’m not looking at unwearable pieces every day. actually, things are quite empty now because i’ve moved the maternity gear out and haven’t moved much in. maybe i’ll just embrace the minimalism. for now.
anyone in a similar situation or have advice from previous rounds of size fluctuations?
