Well, the baby bump is gone! I am currently seven weeks postpartum and loving (almost) every minute with my baby girl. As expected, my life has significantly changed and I’m desperately trying to figure out this mysterious thing called balance that moms are always talking about.
Being a new mom is difficult for a lot of reasons. There are so many changes – to your body, your schedule and your definition of accomplishment (keeping the baby alive counts for a successful day). One thing that is definitely changing is my daily wardrobe. My days aren’t as glamorous as they once were, and I am finding myself gravitating toward a look of chic comfort instead of trendy high-style. I have also found myself on a much tighter budget, as I am cutting back on some of my work commitments and therefore, income.
That’s why I am glad to be participating in the Kohl’s Fashion Ambassador Campaign. I’ve been shopping at Kohl’s on and off for years now and every time I visit, I find myself pleasantly surprised. They offer great style and on-trend fashions at an extremely affordable price point (especially their clearance racks!). With my new budget and busy schedule, Kohl’s makes it super easy to pop in and find great items for my new mom wardrobe.
On my most recent visit to Kohl’s, I noticed that they has a wide selection of one of this spring’s hottest trends – pink. I’ll be honest, my love for pink has definitely waned over the years. A sea of neutrals has invaded my closet and seems to be smothering out a once bright and girlie color palette. However, pale blush (which is extremely hot right now) is my new favorite neutral. It seriously goes with almost anything; and I love the soft touch it adds when paired with white, black or grey.
On my trip I found a great pair of roll-cuff denim from the Apt. 9 line (not available online). Cuffed denim and boyfriend jeans are my go-to pants right now. Not only are they forgiving for my postpartum body, but they’re also decidedly chic, especially when paired with some trendy flat sandals or even a fun heel.
Because I love the monochromatic look, I added a blush foil tank from the Jennifer Lopez collection. I am going to get so much wear out of this top this season. It’s going to look even better with a tan! And for a super casual look, I threw on my new favorite cardigan, a drapey, open-front hoodie from SONOMA. I bought this in both white and grey. Hello, new mom uniform.
I am so glad to add these spring essentials to my wardrobe and am looking forward to share with you my other finds in coming months. If you make it over to Kohl’s, I’d love to know what you find!
