i don’t know if it’s the excitement that soon i won’t have a basketball for a belly or just too much time spent on Pinterest, but i’ve been completely style obsessed lately. i’m so ready to put on real clothes and ohmygod, a shoe with a heel.
about a year before i became pregnant a strange thing happened, i went thru a very long phase of being completely bored with clothes. hated my closet, hated what i found in stores, hated the way things fit…it was a dark time. but now, and maybe it has something to do with a new appreciation for my body (carrying around 30 extra pounds and impending warrior birth will do that), i feel excited about fashion again. i feel clearer about my own personal style and much more comfortable with how undefined it is. the love i used to have for experimenting and switching things up, depending on my mood, is returning and i couldn’t be happier.
here are a few pins that have gotten my style-spiration flowing lately:
a good wide leg:
i’m sure milk stains, boob-covering scarfs and sweaters, and baby carriers will be a part of my daily style narrative and that’s okay. as a matter of fact, i couldn’t be happier about it. yes, i’m totally embracing my new momma-ness – go me.
oh! for all you fashion-forward fellas, my dear friend, Jarrett Joseph, is returning to his style-spired ways by posting daily looks on instagram while he works on a relaunch of his super-creative, male-centric style blog. he has one of the best eyes for men’s fashion in the game so, definitely worth a follow. a recent convo with him inspired this post and i’m excited to see what he’s got cookin’…
here’s to a fashionably inspiring hump day! what’s been on your must-have list? any fall favorites? tell me everything!
