For weeks I have been in a funk when it has come to my appearance. During my pregnancy everyone told me how beautiful I looked and while I didn’t feel beautiful because I was always nauseous or dizzy for the 39 weeks I was pregnant, I happily embraced my growing belly and even wore tight figure fitting shirts, something I never did before. I enjoyed not having to wear empire wasted tops and not sucking in my stomach during photos. I was learning to work my waddle too.
As my littlest one gets bigger (she’s already two months!) I find myself wanting to reclaim my sexiness. And while my physical appearance may not be ideal in my mind, I admit some days I am harder on myself than others, that doesn’t mean sexiness isn’t an option. I have found that there are things that I have done and can do that have the ability to impact how I feel thus resulting in a happier, prettier, and sexier me.

Wear Something That Compliments the Body You Have Now
For weeks I was adamant that I did not want to buy anything until I got my pre-pregnancy body back but yesterday I went to Trader Joe's and I purchased a pumpkin pie and a jar of Cookie Butter. Not trying to be overindulgent I put back the chocolate lava cakes I was going to buy. Loosing this weight may take a little longer than I initially anticipated. I have yet to see if I can squeeze into my post pregnancy jeans but my stomach is loose and wrinkly and it obvious that someone was living in there for awhile. While some of my old clothes fit my new boobies prevent many of them from being comfortable.
This past week after being sick of complaining about how I have “nothing to wear” I broke down and purchased a new shirt. It is flowy and flattering with a little bit of sparkle. Most importantly I feel comfortable in it and pretty. Even if you don’t want to purchase an entire wardrobe invest in a few figure flattering clothing pieces. I’m currently obsessed with the stylish flowy shirts and dresses at Spool No. 72. Copper Starlight Dress
