Mom Style: For the Brand New Mom, Written by a Brand New Mom August 21, 2015 15:20
I’m so excited to be back chatting with you all again, because let’s face it...it’s been a little while! I feel a quick life update is in order! I promised to keep you all up to date on my bump style throughout my entire pregnancy, and I loved every minute of it. My last post was at 36 weeks, and in my sweet innocent first time mom mind I just knew it would be my last post. I was completely certain that there was no way I would make it to my due date. My belly was plenty big, and I knew that I would be having that sweet baby at any minute.
Boy, was I ever wrong!
Fun fact...I went into labor one hour after taking these photos. I couldn’t walk myself into labor, but I guess I could style my way into it. I never got to write my 41 week bump date post, but I will cherish the photos from it forever.
The first few weeks home from the hospital were filled with love, exhaustion, and more love. How I dress has been one of my top priorities, since well forever. These past few weeks, all of that changed and all that has mattered is my time with my baby girl. I’ll just refer to that time in my life as the ‘PJ Phase’ and I am completely ok with that. I wouldn’t change those first few weeks for the world.

Throw on this adorable cardigan, available in 3 awesome colors and you are ready to be out the door.

Being a Mom is the hardest, most rewarding job in the entire world. Life gets really crazy, really fast, and that’s why it is so important to have essentials in your closet that you can grab and go. Motherhood is such a beautiful thing, you deserve to feel just as pretty!
Stay tuned as I continue my Mama Style, on this wonderful journey of motherhood.
