While I love being a mother, it’s important to my husband and I to make sure we have time for ourselves. Thankfully we have a wonderful family that lives close by and is more than happy to take the boys off our hands for a couple of hours at a time. This time away from the kids helps us reconnect and come back more rejuvenated as parents so we are able to take better care of our babies. Our first date night away was kind of spur of the moment, but our second planned date night was more intimate and much more appreciated.
I want to remind myself, and my husband that not only am I a fantastic mother, I’m also a great personal stylist and know how to dress myself really well. Being that I’m 5 weeks post-pardum my body isn’t quite what it used to be yet, which is why I love this dress from Pink Blush. While it is labeled “maternity” it gives me the room I need to feel confident after the baby. This bell-sleeved dress is fabulously on trend for the summer’s 70’s inspired fashion, and I love how it moves with my body!
I felt so sexy and confident wearing this out and my husband kept telling me how hot I looked! To me it doesn’t necessarily matter what the label says, as long as you look and feel your best who cares if you’re still wearing maternity clothes after the baby? Who cares what number your post-baby size is? It doesn’t matter as long as you know you’re owning what you’re wearing. If what you wear can remind you that you are more than a mother, you are still that sexy confident individual that your SO fell in love with. You are still YOU.
Pink Blush also offers several amazing styles in non-maternity outfitting as well, and I’ve teamed up with them to give you the opportunity to win a $50 shop credit to their online boutique! Click the link below to enter in this fabulous giveaway!
