My Favorite Things: Appreciating My Postpartum Body

Look, appreciating my postpartum body hasn’t been easy. There’s a million reasons why the first few months with a baby can be difficult and a million more that can make a mom go hard on herself. Without focusing on maternity or specifically postpartum clothing/products, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite things that have made this season a little easier on me and have made me feel better about myself.


Aerie Romantic Lace Plunge Bralette // I cannot say enough great things about this bralette. All the way to XXL, this bra makes bra can handle all that breastfeeding throws at it without making you feel frumpy.

Old Navy Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans // These jeans are always a favorite with me, but I specifically love the new prints/washes. I have this mid-rise tye dye pair and I love that they don’t make me feel like I’m trying to cover up or hide. Sure, I may be rocking a size larger than I want to right now, but these make me feel like I stand out for all the right reasons.

Modcloth Simplicity on a Saturday Tunic // I swear by this as the best tee ever. I tend to fall between regular and tall fit so I love this length. Although it’s a tunic, it hits me like a long tee and it’s perfect for covering up that postpartum bump.

Target Woven Backless Mules // These little slip ons add a little oomf to anything and I’m learning to really appreciate it. When it feels like you’re living in leggings, these add a little more. T shirt and jeans? Yeah, they work well there too. Shorts and a tank? You bet. These are the all around perfect pair of mules.

Essie Nail Colors (Shown in Mint Candy Apple and Cute as a Button) // These two colors are my go to for when I’m feeling a little gloomy. Sure, they’re a little out of my comfort zone but they add a pop of color and instantly brighten my mood.
