Post Partum Style

Dressing your new body after you've delivered a baby


In those first few weeks after your baby is born, nothing is the same! You're tired and sore and you're in this strange place where none of your maternity clothes fits you anymore (too big, too much rouching and those maternity jeans slide right off your butt!) but nothing from your pre-baby wardrobe fits either. So how's a new mom supposed to find any sense of post partum style?!

Dressing your body after baby for post-partum, post-maternity style, fashion and comfort

You'll need some layers (if your body is like mine, it goes from hot to cold back to hot again in about three minutes - thanks hormones!), some stretchy no-waist pants/leggings, a nursing tank if you're breastfeeding and a pre-baby button up! Don't forget flats or boots. When you're carrying around your new infant, you don't want to fall in heels!

Dressing your post-partum body; post partum fashion

I'm a big fan of these boots. They're a mix between an edgy motorcycle boot and the classic riding boot. They're flat, comfortable and perfect for mild Dallas winters.

Layers are wonderful right after you've delivered a new baby - even if it's summertime! Your body is going through a spin cycle of hormones that make you hot one minute and cold the next. Plus, you never know when that little angel of yours is going to projectile spit up all over you, and you'll want something underneath so that you can remove the top {soiled} layer!

Dressing in layers for fall and winter post-partum fashion

Don't forget to give yourself some grace ladies! It's ok to not change out of your jammies for a few days... Or longer. But when you're ready to start dressing normally again, use these tips to dress that post-baby body so that you're comfortable and feel good about yourself! And don't forget - pony tails are essential for your post partum style!

  5. I made the mistake of cutting my hair off last time and pony tails were not an option...it was the WORST! I love this look, but I really love those boots. I need a pair of them desperately.

  7. This is so great! Even if you don't want to change out of your PJ's do shower!! I really felt like showering after giving birth was amazing, I didn't feel bad before but i felt so good after a hot shower!

  8. Love that vest, it seriously goes with everything. You look amazing, I cannot believe you just had your baby! Barre and yoga for the win right? Is it bad that I don't have a baby and the thought of teetering around in heels is horrifying. I'm with you, all about the flats and boots these days! Or heels with major thick wedges ;)

  9. You do not look like you just had a baby. You are not only the poster child for pregnancy but also post partum! You mention the first few weeks after birth...for me it was the first several MONTHS. You are nailing it. I love those boots and your layering. Whenever I layer, I feel like I look like a disaster, so I will use you as inspiration.

  10. So cute! I have a feeling I will rock my PJs and a comfy robe for quite a while, but I love your idea of layering and having a mix of comfy and cute, more stylish pieces. You look beautiful, mama!
