Mother’s Day Lookbook

Celine Bag  |  t+j Designs jewelry  |  Red Cuff  |  Red Enamel Gold Bangle Set  |

Gold Teardrop Earrings

My husband planned the loveliest Mother’s day; he made us breakfast in the morning and we had a delicious lunch at Sunda.  It was a special first Mother’s day and to add to the wonderful day I got to spend it with my parent’s who are still visiting.  

I’m slowly getting back my body but pregnancy does something to your joints, waist and boobs.  I’ll be honest – I don’t know if my body will ever “look” the same as before, but I’m accepting the changes the best I can.  I am aware at how lucky I am that I naturally have a thinner body and a faster metabolism, but I am still a girl.  I want to fit back into my clothes and be “cute and stylish”.  Recovering and feeling great again takes a bit of time, but I am so in love with little Grant that it’s all something well worth it.  My bottom half has responded quickly to post pregnancy but my top half still is a bit heavier with breast feeding and feeling still slightly swollen.  Clothing, accessories and knowing how to dress definitely helps with pregnancy, post pregnancy, and feeling good.  You should see my closet right now, a bit of a mess as I try on three things or more before deciding what to wear.  I have recently purchased some great spring/summer items; my passion for shopping motivates me to get into shape and will be sharing my looks here :).  

The supportive comments help lift me up and the continued success of my jewelry line, and spending time with my family makes me feel so grateful and happy.  

Still working off and on, launched some new jewelry this week; loving the modern classic collection.

    Oh yeah!!! You had the baby!!! You look so amazing and I love the peplum top and blue jeans! You are fab and I hope all is well and you feel good! I myself was so shocked at how much pain it is postpartum! Never expected to deal with so much discomfort in my life! You will bounce back and fit back in those clothing fast! Your body can go back to being very similar as it was before as well, so don't be discouraged! Glad to see such gorgeous family photos! Bless! xxPip

    I can only HOPE that I can bounce back as quickly as you have after giving birth. You look great, but I hear you on wanting everything back to normal. We're our own worst enemies, but rest assured you look amazing for just having your little boy!
