Daily Wear :: getting my groove back

You go nine months where your body takes on a mind of its own,  stretching to lengths you never thought possible. Then post-partum you're still not back to normal and your ta-tas (if you're breastfeeding) now start to complicate getting dressed every day. All of this can take a beating on your style and self-image. Granted your responsiblity has now shifted greatly to more important things it's still a bit sad to look at your wardrobe. 

But I'm not going to keep sounding all doom and gloom, because I'm getting my dressing groove back :)

For Myself - Daily Wear

Although I spend my days making clothing for other people, I sometimes (or maybe I should say.. somehow?!) find the time to whip up something for myself. I recently took the glea blouse and made it out of a liberty print that I purchased last year. And I love it.

It's been awhile, right? I can't tell you how much I had to brighten this photo...it is so rainy and dark today. I'm okay with it though, just as long as it doesn't stick around for too long.

This has pretty much become my favorite dress....I wear it all of the time. Today is rainy and cool and I'm so happy to throw leggings one and wear it once more.

I'm just trying to stay cool like everybody else. And yes, this is me on our deck...we have a deck in our new apt...awesome. It may be the smallest deck possible and faces a concrete wall, but it's a deck right?!
