Welcome to Sunday everyone. Today I wore another complimenting postpartum ensemble. However, this look is definitely not breastfeeding friendly. I had to pick and choose my battles, hiding my shrinking belly won. I’m basically going to be dressing up in anything loose and flowy until I get back to my normal body weight. Can any other mommies attest to the struggle? All I can say is #momlife!

Motherhood is exactly why I started this blog. So many people have asked me in person or by email this last week and that is my answer ( note to self, change bio..). Being a mom is what led me to venture out into the blogging world but having a mom is where I fell in love with fashion. I grew up with a mother who would get dressed up for every occasion and boy did she look beautiful. I loved watching the process of her picking out something to wear, applying make up, fixing her hair, spraying herself with perfume and ultimately finishing the look with a pair of heels. It was the first time I can remember wanting to be beautiful just like her. Since then my mother has instilled in me the true meaning of beauty, thankfully.

My love for photography also came from my mother. I really enjoyed ( and still do ) looking back at photos of her when she was younger. I have so many great moments with my mother discussing why she wore certain clothes and styled her hair the ways she did. It has brought many laughs and tons of lectures too. I resolved very young to take many pictures so that one day my own future daughters could have the same moments with me. It is still surreal that my silly and very girly dream has become a reality.

A reality check is what I experienced most in my first year of motherhood, especially in the fashion aspect. I will never forget those early days of literally living in pajama pants and sport bras. I chose extra sleep over getting ready in any way. Eventually church became my motivation to get ready. Sundays became my days of style but really they became my day of rest.

I needed an outlet and blogging was perfect. I loved that I could encompass so many of my passions and bring them all together in one small spot of the world, Sundays in Style. I never thought my blog would grow as it has, bring forth new friendships, or the collaborations it has. I now believe it can become a platform for other passions of mine and I am truly grateful for this so Thank you to everyone who supports me in this facet of life!

God bless,

It’s “hump day”, meaning we are half way through the week folks so hang in there. I’m hanging in there for sure especially with days like today. I met up with some of my friends some who are also mothers and had a brunch play date. It was really nice to simultaneously take breaks from our own children because we were watching each other’s instead. Of course, the womanly adult conversation is always a refreshing blessing!

I love weather like today’s because it is perfect. I like to call it crisp weather. It felt just cool enough to throw on my leather Jacket but warm enough to wear this breezy asymmetrical top underneath. I chose this top because of the stretchy material that made it breastfeeding friendly. Owning a top like this is a must if you breastfeed and like to cover up while doing so. It eliminates your need for a cover. This style of top is also complimenting to that shrinking tummy because its price won’t create any bumps in your finances, check it out!

Have a great rest of the week!

Happy Sunday! I finally have the time for a postpartum look. It’s been about six weeks since I gave birth and I’ve lost forty-five of the sixty-six pounds I gained in pregnancy. I have not exercised yet so I guess I’m doing pretty good so far. To be honest I was hoping to lose the entire amount in two months but I am pretty sure that won’t happen since I only have two weeks left. Regardless, I am comfortable with my new and changing body and I only have two more days until I can begin working out!

I purchased this dress while pregnant but never wore it due to the weather and ironically it rained today, figures! I am just glad that the temperature took an unfavorable turn after I spent the morning at church and brunch with friends. I know I have said it before but dresses are my favorite and definitely my “go to” choice. Wearing a dress is just effortless and time effective. I cannot express enough how much easier it is as a mommy of two to get dressed quickly. Besides the fact that dresses are a saving grace for time they are also great for their diversity in styles. The shift dress like the one I am wearing is perfect for hiding the awkward post baby weight around your midsection. For once, I wasn’t self-conscious about that!

Have a wonderful week everyone,

D
