Oh yes, I wore the same thing three days in a row. Saturday I wore this out to dinner. Sunday I wore this to go wedding dress shopping with a friend (who found The Dress and ordered it!!!). Today it was worn to work. I saw different people, did different things.

I am in desperate need of some clothing that fits this new body, but no time to go shopping. I have ordered a few things online but none have worked thus far. A few pants and a dress are en route, I hope they work because I am getting really strapped for proper clothing. For example, I have a meeting tomorrow offsite where I am supposed to “dress appropriately.” Oh geez. I think I will wear my red Maggy London dress because I have no suiting that fits right now, and all my pants look like heck after being worn and washed so many times. Also the maternity pants are too big now, while old pants do not fit. So yeah, the same dress is worn three days in a row these days. At least it is clean and looks relatively cute…

    Hi Allie,
    Have you looked into postpartum pants? They got me through this tricky time so well! Even after I returned to my original size I kept wearing them becuase they were comfy and flattering. These are on sale:

    What a cool idea you have for your blog! Very original. I think you are so pretty. 🙂 You are inspiring me to get out of my mom jeans and stained tee shirt and be the woman I used to be.

    Hey, it works, it’s comfy, and it looks smashing. No criticism over here!

    Hi Allie,
    First of all – You look great! That dress does look very cute on you 🙂
    This “in-between” stage can definitely be weird and confusing. Hang in there. Eventually you’ll settle back into a more normal you. There were a few weeks after my daughter was born where I had NOTHING that fit me except sweats and a pair of horribly unflattering pants 🙂 My friends would ask me to go out and I would stay home and cry because I had nothing that fit. My old clothes didn’t fit my new body and my maternity clothes were too big – and I wondered where the body I had known for so long had gone.
    So my advice is…as hard as it is to find time for you right now because of work and taking care of that precious baby, take some time to do some shopping. Even just a few items that make you feel more like YOU can make a HUGE difference. It’s so important to be good to yourself too. 🙂

    Much love!!

    I totally hear you on the clothing transition stage. I am just getting back into SOME of my old clothes and my daughter is over 6 months old. Good luck!

    How about breaking out the Bella Band? It might help you get into 1 or 2 pre-pregnancy pants. . . . .
