9 Months on, 9 Months off

photo 4
I gained 45 pounds while I was pregnant and I made a pact with myself that I would not stress out too much about losing it. I would just work out, eat healthy and try to give it time. All my good friends would tell me how fab I looked (even though I knew I still had a long way to go) and remind me that it took 9 months to put on the weight, so I should give my body 9 months to take it off. That sounded like an eternity a couple months back, but such is life with a new baby that the days turn into weeks and into months faster than you can change a diaper.
Blink and 9 months is almost here and voila, my friends were right. I can comfortably fit into my old clothes…like, I’m not even gasping for air while wearing this dress. Major improvement! I wore this dress to last night’s Etro fashion show at the beautiful Perez Art Museum of Miami. And even though this dress is an oldie (but a goodie), the cobalt blue was right on trend. See, investing in good pieces is always the way to go.002

Classic Jackie O Dress in cobalt blue by Black Halo
This is one of my favorite labels…I adore their chic lines, classic tailoring and sophisticated take on a modern woman’s wardrobe. If you don’t know Black Halo, check them out…they are fab!

Moral of the post…give yourself time after your pregnancy to get back into your clothes. Don’t stress about it, it will happen. And…invest money in simple but chic pieces, they’ll last you much longer than that “must have” trend of the moment bag you’ve been eyeing ;)
