The Mom Bod.

Here I am about 7 weeks postpartum & I still have 40 pounds to lose! Growing a baby is hard work & well my body took the brunt of it. I gained about 30 more pounds than the doctor told me I should... and yes I may have had a few too many ice cream cones, and boy am I paying for it now... Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention or maybe it's just unspoken but they don't often tell you about having a baby is HOW MUCH your body will actually change, and not just the extra pounds! My hips (which were already nice and full) widened and my waist (which was my pride and joy) disappeared, not to mention my boobs, I actually have them now.. I never understood the struggle of dressing with those sisters until now! The struggle people.... it's real. I have been trying to figure out this new mom bod while I am in the transition of "getting my body back" & this dress has been the ultimate go to for me when I want to feel dreamy & like a lady. I love how it just hangs so perfectly off my body without showing the extra curves and dimples that my body so proudly carries now! If I could have this dress in a million patterns I would wear one everyday! I paired it with some fleece lined tights and some over the knee socks here since it's frigid here in Utah & I needed a little extra warmth! 

What are your go to postpartum picks? I would love to hear them for more inspiration on how to dress my new mom bod!!
