30 for 30: Day 10

 See all my 30 for 30 posts here.  

Accessories: wedding ring, octopus necklace that I always get made fun of for but I love it anyway


I've decided I hate this shirt. I mentioned when I first listed my items that it was a frantic, "MY NEW BABY IS ACTUALLY NURSING AND I'M FAT AND I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR" purchase at Target as soon as I was discharged from the hospital after Baby 2 was born. At the time, it was perfect. It buttons up for easy nursing access and it was billowy (which, I don't know if you've ever had a baby, but billowy clothing is your friend for a while).

But now? Now it's just ill-fitting and unflattering and generally not worth the closet space. This cardigan was definitely too warm for the day but the shirt on its own was horrible. I tried belting and tucking and the only way it works is as a layer and even then the whole outfit is questionable. To add insult to injury it's hand wash only. So after today it's going in to my maternity box when I have the NURSING AND FAT! crisis again someday. And I won't need to think of it until then.

  1. OMG I totally have those kinds of shirts. I bought all these shirts when I was pregnant thinking "oh I can wear these after the baby!" but now I just associate them with being fat and nursing. No thanks! :)
