In My Flamingo Dress I’ll Stay


Happy Monday!!!

Anybody go crazy with tax-free weekend spending???

I was able to control myself and not buy anything! I think it’s because the Olympics just started and we’ve been glued to the TV watching all the events!

I just LOVE the Olympics there’s something about witnessing the greatest athletes in the world all compete with each other and showing off their crazy amazing skills! It also kinda makes me want to do what they’re doing…like, maybe I have a chance at swimming in the 400 medley or being the all-around champion in gymnastics…I mean how hard could it be?? Ha!

It’s also nice to have some fun entertainment to watch since going outside in Texas in August is pretty much just MISERABLE! I know I’m supposed to be posting about all the upcoming fall fashions and trends but I just can’t start thinking about fall pieces…not yet…I mean let’s be honest, where I live our summer weather isn’t over until October!

I really can’t believe it’s already August and my girls will be 5 months in a week! Now that I’m 5 months post baby it is still a struggle to fit into most of my clothes in my closet…

I’m not one to go out and buy a whole new temporary wardrobe with the hopes that in the coming months I’ll be able to start fitting into more of my clothes…but I also don’t want to just live in stretchy pants and over-sized shirts everyday!

So I’ve been searching for clothing pieces that are affordable+fashionable, plus compliment my post baby body, and also are pieces that I can still wear as I try to start toning up and shedding my baby weight.

My favorites right now are soft flowy tent dresses! They help hide post baby imperfections and still look feminine and stylish, plus in this super hot and humid weather they are comfortable to wear outside in the heat!

I’ve found a few super cute tent dresses at one of my favorite local boutiques. This flamingo one is my favorite!!!

They are sold out of the flamingo dress, but they have lots of similar style dresses on their website here!

I’m still not ready to let go of all the summer trends…I’m pretty attached to all things flamingo, pineapple, and watermelon!

It’s hard to get hyped up about burnt oranges and maroons and pumpkins and fall leaves when it’s still 100+ degrees outside! Come mid-September I’ll be full on Autumn styling and decor!

But until then…in my flamingo dress I’ll stay!

What are your favorite clothing styles for post baby body?
