Not only do I try to keep my focus honed in on what I am wearing most when shopping, but I now obsess over COMFORT! I’ve linked my favorite comfy outfits throughout this blog! Here it goes…
This is very new for me! I used to just shop for “cute” meaning that if the heels and uncomfortable clothing helped me achieve a look I wanted, then I wore it! Motherhood changed all of that! I currently need to be able to get up and down off the ground easily to change diapers and to play with Somer. I also literally sweat the entire first year after having a baby, am on edge from being sleep deprived, and hungry 24/7 from feeding everyone else before I can feed my starving self(mom probs)! So, the last thing I want is to wear something that annoys me!
Currently, I don’t buy anything that is not easy to nurse in. Nursing can test my patience so I only buy gear that allows me to be as comfy as possible when nursing. Quick Mom Tip: When I’ve bought a shirt for easy breastfeeding access that is not a REAL nursing top/dress, I try to buy one that I will continue wearing when I’m done nursing (like this Lululemon shirt below).
For Christmas, my mother-in-law introduced me to Aerie! These are the softest yoga pants and sweater I own!
My motto is no longer just “cute” when getting dressed, it’s now “comfort AND cute!” Why would I ever just stick to one when I can have both?!
