No matter HOW comfy those maternity undies were- they're staying clean and in the box. No matter how great the fabric was on those navy capris Andy bought me in my last month, even though I only got to wear them for mere WEEKS before packing them up- they're staying clean and in the box. Those skinny jeans I bought that fit so nicely in my brown leather slouch boots- they're staying clean and in the box EVEN THOUGH I've never found a pair that fit me better.
Now, it took me two totes to stash all my maternity clothing. I bought one tote with good intentions. SURELY I didn't accumulate THAT much clothing in 39 weeks time! But yes-yes I did. What can I say? I'm a savvy shopper. I accumulated a great deal from consignment shops and of course Kohls. I had two of every bottom- capris, shorts, skirts, dress pants. And lots and lots of tops, because who am I kidding? I was a slob when I was pregnant. And I only started REALLY wearing maternity tops at about 6 months.
Which brings me to my current revelation: if you wore an article of clothing while you were pregnant, and it doesn't say "maternity" on the tag, it's still fair game postpartum.
Like me today:
Hmmm...the bottom picture was just this morning...and it still does make me look a little pregnant...but we all know better. The bottom line is that it's comfy. And I like the colors. And. That's it.
It's not like I got rid of shoes I bought and wore when I was pregnant. Oh contraire. Those ultra comfy slip flops and grungy old crocs will be donning my feet for summers to come- okay maybe one more summer at least. Goodness knows they're all I wore and they're looking a little shabby.
So just so we're clear- if you bought it to wear while pregnant, but it doesn't have a maternity tag in it, you're free to wear it while you're not pregnant. Says me.
Okay, back to what you were doing.
