Tomorrow will officially mark three weeks since Essley was born. And although I'm still living mainly in oversized tops and leggings (often accessorized with spit-up), it's been nice to go through my closet and finally be able to wear my pre-pregnancy clothes for the first time since late spring. I gained a lot of weight while I was pregnant, so the majority of my wardrobe was pretty neglected for quite a while. Thankfully, most of the weight ended up being water and was gone after about a week. It will still be a while before I'm back in my skinny jeans though! I'm looking forward to the weather warming up so I can get back to daily walking and outside yoga and shed the remainder of these baby pounds. I'm so ready to be active again (and go shopping for a few new 'I'm not pregnant anymore!' outfits).
Because of the ridiculously cold winter we're having in the Chicago area, combined with the fact that right now a good day means running a brush through my hair and maybe splashing some water on my face, I'm not sure when I'll get back to doing regular outfit posts around here. In the meantime, I thought I'd take a look back through some of my favorite looks from 2013, as seen above. This isn't solely a personal style blog, but fashion is one of my life-long great loves. And as dorky as I feel getting my picture taking for the blog (so, so awkward), sharing outfits with you guys is one of my favorite parts of Bubby and Bean. If any of you with blogs have favorite outfit posts from 2013, please leave links in the comments. I'd love to see them!
