Considering it’s been half a year since I posted regularly on the blog, it’s slightly awkward jumping back in with an outfit post. But without another grand re-entry plan, here we go…

I’m now 21 months into motherhood and finally finding my groove. I still have more questions than answers. I still feel wholly unprepared at times. I’m still trying to figure out a way to hold onto myself and at the same time fully embrace my identity as the primary (along with her father, of course) steward and trainer of this precious little soul. But I think I’m starting to find some, dare I say, balance.

These past few months have been a great season of self-discovery for me. One that’s led to true peace and comfort in my own skin. For maybe the first time in my life, I don’t feel like I’m trying to be someone, instead I’m satisfied with just being. Slower. Simpler. Unapologetic. I’ve learned to say “no” to choices with freedom. And to say “yes” when it matters most.

I know it’s perhaps odd to get this philosophical on an outfit post, yet it makes complete sense to me. Fashion has always been something I’ve been interested in. But, I never really felt like I quite fit into the fashion world. Constantly comparing and competing to stay ahead of trends was exhausting, unfulfilling and downright vain. But what maturity is teaching me is that my style is for me. And although I may share it, it doesn’t need to impress anyone else. And while I love dressing my daughter in matching looks, it’s really that confidence and self-assurance that I hope to pass down.
