Happy Friday, my darlings! I have been looking forward to writing this post because, boy, wasn’t it a shocker to try to dress myself after I had Lennox. Somehow, I thought that I would go back to normal (with a few extra pounds) as soon as he was out. Let’s say, I was a little wrong. I looked 6 months pregnant for the first ten days or so! Today, I wanted to share with you what I learned during that time so you do not have to stress out like I did at times and, get to look stylish right after giving birth. (more…)

FAB MAMA STYLE – NEW MAMA ESSENTIALS

Happy Wednesday, my darlings! On today’s “Fab Mama Style”, I am going to focus on a topic that came as a surprise to me after I had Lennox: “what do I wear now?”. I feel like we worry about what to wear during the pregnancy and think that right after it we will go back to our pre-pregnancy clothes. Or, at least, that is kind of what happened to me. In reality, I left the hospital super swollen and looking 5 months pregnant; hence, nothing to wear. My maternity clothes were too big and there was not a chance that I was going to fit in my pre-pregnancy clothes. I quickly discovered that a few basics would be necessary to make it through that transition. Here are the products I would definitely recommend to any new mama to have handy post-baby:

  1. A maxi dress. I literally lived in maxi-dresses for the first ten days post baby. They are super comfy, easy to wear and hide everything that you want to hide for the first few days/weeks.
  2. Stylish sweatpants. Let’s be honest; I was a hot mess the first couple of days after having Lennox. But, after that, the day comes when you want to start looking like a functional human but the energy to get all dressed up is not quite there yet. This is when stylish sweatpants come into play. Fantastic way to stay comfy and look chic and the same time. Look for a pair with fringe, lace on the sides or any other detail that will make them stand out.
  3. A basic tunic. This is probably up there with maxi dresses for me. If you find a great tunic, all you need is a pair of leggins and some great sneakers or sandals. Accessorize the look with a hat, great sunglasses and a trendy handbag and you are good to go.
  4. Booties. Wearing comfy shoes is definitely a necessity right after giving birth, but comfy does not always mean sneakers. Booties are a fantastic way to add a stylish touch to your look without compromising comfort.
  5. A flowy top. Get this in a basic color so you can use it all the time with different pants and skirts. Choose and off-the-shoulder one to direct attention to your shoulders and not to your still swollen belly.
  6. Boyfriend jeans. Another great essential to have handy. The oversize cut will help you stay comfy while creating a trendy look. Jeans are always a great idea! Go for a pair of distressed ones for an additional fierce touch.

I hope that you find this list hopeful and thank you for stopping by!

MUST HAVE MONDAY – POST-PARTUM WAIST TRIMMER

Waist Trimmer - Post Partum

Hello, my darlings! Today, I am sharing a special post for my “Must-Have Monday”. Since this section is all about products I feel could be beneficial to my community, I wanted to share with you an awesome one I found a few weeks back. As some of you know, I had my first child three weeks ago. One of the things I was not expecting was being SUPER swollen right after my c-section. I mean, my shoes do not fit kind of swollen. It was not only very uncomfortable but also a bit embarrassing, I am not going to lie. My belly was also super swollen due to lots of fluid retention caused by the pain killers. After much reading about the topic, I learned that a waist trimmer could help my muscles go back to their pre-pregnancy place, so I started my search.

I bought this waist trimmer after reading the amazing reviews, and I could not be happier with the results. I noticed my belly going down after the first day of wearing it, and I am still using it 3 weeks after giving birth to my baby boy. One thing that I’d like to point out is that, while I am loving the results, this is not a miracle worker. I did not gain tons of weight during my pregnancy and I exercised 6 days a week up until 2 days before giving birth. So, I believe that what the waist trimmer has done for me is to help speed up my muscle memory.

Because I had a c-section, I also bought this special girdle that is more friendly when it comes to wearing tighter clothes. Also, it has a silicone patch that covers your incision, which provides lots of relief when the incision is itchy and/or painful.

I hope that you find these products helpful. Stay tuned, as I will be sharing more products that I am finding super helpful either to help with my recovery or to use with Lennox.

Thanks for stopping by!

xoxo
