First off, can we all say WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?! Yes, I agreed to a Style Challenge where the pictures would have to be taken 3 WEEKS postpartum.  I am definitely not currently at my ideal weight, but as my 7 year old told me the other day, "This is amazing! I can't believe your stomach looks almost back to normal after you had a baby inside!"  I'm getting there.

After my first pregnancy I was horrified that regular clothes did not fit me when I got home from the hospital.  This time I let myself live in yoga pants and maternity jeans week 1.  Week 2 I went online and winced as I ordered jeans two sizes larger than normal to hold me over until the pile of pants waiting for me in my closet will finally zip again.

At the end of week 2/3 I got brave, went to our local Kohl's and started trying clothes on in the fitting room.  Below is a combo of pieces from the Daisy Fuentes Collection, celebrating 10 years at Kohl's by the way!, and what was already in my closet.  I'm just really glad this wasn't a swimsuit challenge!

Outfit #1: Daisy Fuentes Striped Ponte Fit & Flare Dress + Black Blazer from my closet

Postpartum Clothing Shopping Tips

This dress is extremely comfortable and sleeveless.  Since it is still very chilly in the Chicago area, I paired it with a black blazer that I've had for years.  I think the look is stylish and would be great for a conference or meeting in the city with the jacket or a night out on the town.

Outfit #2:  Daisy Fuentes Boyfriend Cardigan, Daisy Fuentes Sunglasses, Daisy Fuentes Seamless Camisole, scarf, dark wash jeans + ballet flats from my closet.

I could live in this outfit.  The cardigan is so soft and it's a cute look that will take me to the park and out running errands - you know, the busy mom stuff.

Outfit 3: Daisy Fuentes Dot Tee Shirt Dress, Daisy Fuentes Sunglasses, Daisy Fuentes Necklace

This is another great and easy day to day look for being with the kids.  I feel put together and ready to volunteer in Ellie's first grade classroom.

I love this jacket!  The color and fit are great and you look instantly put together.  Paired with a whit shirt, you have a classic look that never goes out of style.
