Hello, friends! I’ve had the entire house to myself this morning (which is a rare event) and am actually getting to work! Believe it or not, Indy and Pax do not seem to care that I haven’t been able to provide my expert opinions on matters of fashion and beauty lately. :)
I actually had another day this week to leave the house solo and took my first trip to the mall in well over a year. (!!!!!) I was quite excited and had even planned to spend some Christmas money I still had, but left empty-handed. Between my still re-adjusting post-baby body, having lived in comfy clothes for the past 15 months, and not feeling super-inspired by anything I saw, I left kind of disappointed.
Is anyone else having trouble adjusting to “real” clothes, post-2020?
Or maybe it’s just post-baby. I remember after Indy was born I felt this strong urge to change up my look or buy something expensive (and totally not practical) when he was a few months old. I even wrote about it here.
All the clothing items I did like this week were definitely not practical for my work-from-home, full-time mother of tiny children lifestyle.
I have no real point in typing any of this other than to see if maybe anyone else feels similar.
Clothes have always been such a creative outlet for me and I think I’ve been in a cycle of athleisure to maternity athleisure to postpartum athleisure and I just want my old life back.
I know I have plenty of clothes in my closet to work with. I know I have created dozens of pieces of content to help people with creating new outfits and finding inspiration. I just need to trust the process and see where I end up.
I guess I’m now on some sort of mental and spiritual journey to find my style as a late 30-something, mother of two, business-owner who works from home. If you see that department next time you’re shopping, let me know. :)
How about you? Has getting dressed been more difficult for you lately? Or are you finally back in a groove? Let me know!
