Another baby, another go at this same dilemma. What to wear? It's hard enough not being able to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding and struggling with feeling comfortable in my own skin. But looking into a closet full of clothes I can't even think of wearing any time soon, it stinks. After having my first son I went through the exact same thing. Except that it ate at me so much, I was disgusted with my appearance. This time, I'm determined to make the best of it. I know that for me, holding onto the baby weight and being able to nurse my son (without fainting) go hand in hand.
As a way to feel as much like myself as possible I decided to just go ahead and build a small wardrobe to wear while I'm in between sizes. I obviously don't want to go crazy purchasing an entire closet worth of clothes but just enough items to mix and match during this time.
I've made a few shopping trips with this agenda and am happy to say that I now have something to wear - besides pj's. It's a good feeling :) Below are some items that are similar or exacts of what I've purchased.

I'm no fashion expert but my best advice would be | ONLY buy items that you feel great in and will look forward to pulling out of your closet. Just because something is on sale, doesn't mean it's worth buying. It could just turn into a big waste of money. You also don't need to sacrifice style for practicality. Search until you find something that fits both categories. And lastly, take a few chances. I have a little problem with always buying things in black. I guess my mind just thinks "slimming" when I see black but that's not always the case. Pushing myself to add color has been one of the best things I've done. Makes me feel happy :)
I hope this was helpful for some of you. Even if you're currently comfortable with your size or shape, these pieces are pretty timeless and great for every wardrobe.
