I had my DD in April. I have been lucky enough to lose most of my pregnancy weight but my boobs are bigger than before (now 36DD) and I just feel I have changed shape (now size 10/12). When I worked I was happy in wrap dresses, skirts and tops with little cardis etc. for work and jeans at the weekend. However, now that I am having to dress smart/casual every day of the week I seem to have totally lost my way ... and confidence and don't know what to wear other than jeans!
What do you wear as a SAHM? What are you wearing today? Inspire me!
erm - I'm actually naked! Have just come in from the pool and dh has smothered me in the complimentary L'Occitane aftersun balm so I am waiting for it to dry before I get dressed. Must do so quickly actually as room service is about to arrive with lunch
The really crucial thing is that anything you wear must be washable at 30 degrees. Resign yourself to the fact that you will not be wearing any items that are dry-clean-only for the next ten years. The minute you put on something silk, angora or hand-beaded, your child will cover it with mucus and paint.
I wear a Boden dress, with wedges, a fine hairstyle, and a handy tabard. That way i am ready for everything, and afterall galls as a SAHM, being ready for anything is what it's all about, hahaha [fixed sparkly grin]
ah but that was because you had a job that required Nice Clothes
Mine is so casual people wear shorts, jeans with holes in, things with paint on etc.
If I dressed like Mal I would show them up
I do jeans, cords, nice combats, no trainers, no fleece, no sportswear. Works whether in work or SAHMing.
