A Little Soft Around the Edges

...that's how I feel right now. Still a little soft around the edges!! I've shed a good bit of the pregnancy weight, but there's still a LONG weigh (pun intended, hehe) to go. I'm definitely not looking forward to starting to work  out again, as I can't help but notice I have been getting a stitch in my side whenever I walk up the driveway to check the mail. It's kind of a reality check for how long it's going to take me to get back into fighting shape. But whatevs! I'm still enjoying the freedom of not being pregnant anymore...even with the extra weight, I feel so light and free!

Here's a couple of new-mom essentials that I'm putting to good use...

 Slouchy tie-dye skinny jeans...I made these myself using bleach (DIY coming soon-hopefully!!) The skinny leg keeps me from feeling too frumpy but the slouchy fit makes them more comfy than most skinny jeans. The tie-dye is also a plus, because it hides stains.

        Boyfriend blazer and t-shirts-also comfy and hides the after-baby belly!

 Pink lips-perks up my face so you won't notice how tired I am! This is still my cheapie Wet 'n Wild fuschia lipstick that I talked about here.
Lightweight summer wrap. My mother bought me this in a little boutique in Asheville and I wear it all the time. It kind of disguises the fact that I'm still wearing maternity shorts. 

Comfort-made wedges. These are Aerosoles, so they're super soft leather and really comfy. It's hard to find a non-flat shoe (and I could really use the slimming effect on my legs right now) that is easy to walk in while holding a baby. These are awesome!
