What I wore: maxis

So this is what I wore Thursday and Friday of last week. It was very mid-80's!

I've been realizing that maxi skirts and dresses are probably going to become my go-to wardrobe staple for summer. You see, I have this small problem...I gained some weight when I added dairy back into my diet (after I knew Audrey could process it through my breast milk), and I gained a few pounds. I guess I didn't really think that not eating dairy for a year was keeping about 5 pounds off of me...but it seems like it was! So, now the thing is...I don't fit comfortably into a couple pairs of shorts and cropped pants that I bought just last year! Ugh.

I think maxi skirts and dresses are the perfect solution. They are very forgiving, so if I lose or gain a few pounds it won't matter too much, and they're totally mom-friendly for crawling around on the floor or playing at the park. I feel much better about buying a couple of these to get me through summer, instead of investing in more pants when I don't even seem to know what my size is!

Anyway, here are the outfits!

  2. Oh wow, I love the second maxi! I am going to the beach next weekend and this looks like the perfect outfit to wear! I will be sure to go on a hunt for one this weekend. Eeeek! I hope I can find something as gorgeous as this :)
