The LB(M)D

Did I plan on holding Thomas in every photo? No. Would he let me put him down? Also a no. But I understand where he's coming from, I'm pretty fun to hang out with. ;)

I hadn't put very much thought into what I would wear once Thomas was born. Maybe I just wasn't able to fully grasp what life as a mom would be like in general let alone what the wardrobe was going to be like? So far, all I've figured out is that 1) whatever I'm wearing will end up covered in spit up and/or drool (who am I kidding, it's and... spit up and drool) and 2) I need very quick and easy access to my boobs. Thomas brings hangry to a whole new level and he will go from happy to velociraptor in 3 seconds flat when hunger strikes. As a result I am wearing a lot of stretchy black clothing. 

Most of my pre-baby clothes are already packed for the move so I haven't even attempted to see what might fit yet (yikes - that's going to be fun) but my maternity clothes are so comfy I'm happy wearing them for a bit longer. Besides, I honestly don't think very many of my non maternity tops will be very nursing friendly. I have a couple little black maternity dresses (or LBMDs) that have transitioned really well into a nursing wardrobe as well as a few black maternity tops and a pair of skinny black dress maternity pants.

Can I also take a quick second to applaud maternity pants? Why do any pants have judgmental buttons at the top? Do know what isn't judgemental? A stretchy band. Stretchy bands on your pants don't care when you eat an entire pizza but a button does. But I digress...

Honestly, I have just been wearing the same black stretchy maternity items on repeat for the past 9 weeks when going out. And now that the weather has been cooling off I've been adding in some light jackets and blazers from my non maternity wardrobe to add some variety. 

But let's be honest here, does anyone really care what I'm wearing when baby clothes are so darn cute? All I have to do is put little baby shoes on Thomas and I could literally wear my pajamas in public without a single person caring. Not that I would ever do that...

  1. Aw, still love your style lovey!! You're always so classic & fashionable no matter what, which I love!! And those loafers are so, so perfect! I'll have to check out Zara, am on the hunt for some effortless flats! xo

    PS - Thomas is the CUTEST!!


    1. Aw, well thank you. At this point I don't really have very many clothing options so if they look classic, I'll take it ;) I love Zara shoes! Ordering them online is always so perfect. Good luck on your search for flats! xo (Also, thank you! I am biased but I have to agree he's pretty cute haha)

  2. I've been out of the blogging loop for awhile - you had a baby!!! Congratulations!!! He's too cute. It's definitely a whole new ballgame trying to dress yourself with little ones pulling on things and spitting up everywhere.

    1. I've been out of the blogging loop too so don't worry! Yes! We had a boy in July and he's the best little guy. Honestly, I didn't realize how different it would be trying to get dressed with a newborn so I'm hoping I am doing alright with it haha

  3. I'm looking for a similar trench - is yours recent?
