I have to admit, I spent my whole maternity leave and most of the summer so far in yoga pants and tank tops. So comfortable, easy to wash when they get baby yuck on them, and comfy (did I already mention that?). In the back of my mind, I heard Stacy and Clinton from What Not To Wear yelling at me. “There are ways to be comfy and stylish!”
Yeah, yeah, I know. So now when I leave the house, I put on real clothes. Poor Logan, who pretty much still only sees me in yoga pants. But I’m trying.
Shortly before Emily was born, I came across a website called Polyvore while
wasting time looking on Pinterest. People design outfits and tell where you can buy the individual pieces. I found several “designers” (is that what they would be called?) who put together outfits that I loved. Mostly basic pieces, often in neutrals. And layering in a way that those basic pieces don’t look boring.
So my goal this summer (besides losing the baby weight so I can actually fit into the clothes!) is to piece together the outfits. I have lots of the pieces, so putting it all together is more looking at what I have in a new way. I do have a list clothes I want to buy but want to make as many as possible. Which has meant more searching on Pinterest and blogs I love! It also means that when people ask if I’m making tons of clothes for Emily, I sheepishly have to say no!
Here’s one of the outfits I’ve been putting together:
