First, can we all just look at Joc in her one socked-ness and chuckle. Guffahh Guffahh. I mean she looks like she's going to an audition for an 80's movie in this oversized denim black hole. Man I love her.

mmmmm hmmmm. Onto what I really came here to talk about.

I'm finally starting to realize the REAL reasons why I stopped fashion blogging and a lot of it has to do with how much my body has changed after I had a baby. For some reason I had it in my head that after about three months I'd be right back to where I was before I got pregnant, when people told me it took about a year to work the baby weight off I thought that sounded ridiculous. Well, I'm here to tell you I'm an idiot. I'm nowhere near being back to my pre-pregnancy weight and Jocelyn's first birthday is next month. And well, I got to thinking. It's a pretty crap excuse to not do something I love because I wish I was a bit thinner. Not only that but I want to love my body and not be ashamed of it, it gave me Jocelyn! And I just want to hopefully be a help to those of you that feel like they don't have the perfect body but they still need to love their body for the beautiful wonder that it is. So anyways, let's all give our bodies a little bit of love today shall we....that sounded way weirder than I wanted it to.

P.S. I really want to talk a lot more about postpartum weight loss hhhhhmmmm or lack thereof, but I feel like I want to talk about it in a video because there's just so much personal stuff to share on that subject. Would you peeps be interested in talking about that with me?! Anyways, stay tuned.

  2. I would love if you did a video on postpartum weight loss. I feel that especially with social media nowadays there is so much pressure for moms to just bounce back and become super slim trimmed moms. When it reality, it very rarely happens! Loved everything about this post. Oh and you are beautiful :) :)

  3. Um sign me up!!!! I see so many fashion bloggers that literally walk out of a delivery room and it's like they were never pregnant! I had my fourth baby in May of 2014. I gained 55 pounds. I was 122 to start with. I am STILL painfully trying to lose the weight. You are not alone girlfriend! It was like that with every single one of my kids. It happens. But I think you look AMAZING!!! And I was so so so excited to see you fashion blogging again--I really missed your blog! I have talked on my blog a lot about my weight loss and my consensus is this--it may seem that you are the only one going through it because every other lady out there seems to look flawless pregnant and come out like nothing happened bu the truth is that almost everyone has to adjust to baby weight. The important thing is that you and your family are healthy. And your daughter is just adorable!

  4. It's good to see you blogging again! I'd be interested in this discussion, yup. There are a lot of things I avoid or tell myself I'll do later when I'm thinner. And that's sad

  5. I thought the same thing before I had kids! I also though the weight was supposed to fly off from breastfeeding but that didn't happen either. For most ladies but not this one. It took a year after stopping nursing to get my "normal" body back! I wish I would have been more patient with myself the first go-round. I think it's great that you're going to get back to doing something you enjoy and taking a little time for you (at least that's what blogging is for me :) )

  6. I'm so glad I'm not the only "idiot" who thought it would be super simple to get back to "normal". I dropped a ton of weight in the 6 weeks after C was born, but in the... 14? 15? weeks that followed, I dropped, at most, 2 pounds. Frustrating... but this weekend, when I caught myself badmouthing my body in front of my little girl, I decided that I had to start talking more positively about my own image. it's a slow process but I'll get there! Very glad you're back to outfit posts! I can't always find the time to watch videos (most of my blog reading is done while putting the little one to sleep!) so I appreciate the pictures :D

  7. Sarah, first of all thanks for being real. Second of all i have followed you for so long and you have ALWAYS been so dang beautiful. You're style is amazing, I was looking back to some of your posts from 2012/2013 and they have always been so great. I want to wear everything NOW that's how good you are. You have a talent. In regards about the comment you left on my insta, I would always be down to talking about it. It's something i'm passionate about and have learned the hard way the ins and out. Just let me know! ;)

  8. First of all, you look adorable - the hat is so fun. Secondly, look how big your little lady is! So cute. I'm glad that you are continuing to blog and being honest with how you feel about your body; I haven't had a baby, but I know how it feels to be dissatisfied with my body. Just remember, that you only have one body, so it is important that we love and appreciate it no matter what!

    xoxo,
    Laura
