Stripe Midi Dress

Hi Loves!

I hope you had a great weekend. Highlight of my weekend was Emmanuel getting his first haircut (that deserves a post of its own, right?). Still getting used to his new face and hairless head. Other than that, it was a pretty chilled weekend for us. On Sunday we had some friends visit. It felt good to entertain again. 

I have been looking forward to styling this dress. You already know I am a stripe lover, so it didn’t take much for me to fall in love with this dress. 

 On another note, it is amazing what an extra 5 to 7 pounds will do to you. When I saw this dress I initially thought I would be able to fit in a size 4, which was my sad to say old size. But when it arrived and I tried it on, and I could barely get the zipper to go up. I think that was the moment reality set in for me that I officially have a new size. Well, unless I take getting in shape seriously, which I haven’t been able to do, ever. I can still miraculously fit most of my old stuff, but the new ones, they are mostly a size 6. Depending on the style of the garment, whether fitted or a loose fit, I can still gamble with a 4 every now and then. But, I think it is time to embrace my new size for now. Even though I already have quite a few pieces in 6, I was in denial, still blaming it on the transition period of my post baby body. I think transition period is over and this is the real deal now. Not complaining, just more of an acceptance of my new size. The only thing I might refuse to accept is my belly area. Something needs to happen there, soon!

   Have a great day!
