Fall Lookbook Featuring Postpartum Friendly Options

Fall Lookbook Featuring Postpartum Friendly Options

I have something fun for you guys today: a lookbook!

Originally I was planning on doing a pospartum specific lookbook, but I kind of realized that the outfits could work for anyone despite their stage in life.

So I’m calling this a fall lookbook with options that are postpartum friendly… everything I show can be worn while breastfeeding, no fancy fabrics that can’t be cleaned/washed, and shoes you can chase your kids in. You catch my drift.

But back to my point about these outfits working for everyone:

I’ve come to realize that it’s important to wear things that make you feel like your old self. I COULD show you a postpartum specific lookbook full of legging outfits, but, well…

It’s not that hard to put a tunic or sweatshirt over a pair of leggings. But also because I want to encourage you to move beyond leggings/slouchy tops (unless that’s your normal style, in which case go for it!). I would encourage you to try to get back into your normal style as soon as you are able…

with revisions of course.

I am a firm believer that weight loss shouldn’t be a huge priority immediately after giving birth so there are things about your normal style you may have to adjust until/if you experience weight loss.

For example: denim. I am nowhere near my typical denim size and I only had one pair in my wardrobe that sort of fit. But I also recognized that a few pairs of denim would make a big difference in my overall confidence so I bought a few pairs in a bigger size.

I know I show a lot of sustainable clothing options here, but I did choose to shop from Gap & Old Navy. Why? Because they were more affordable (with the discounts they offer) and fit into my budget better. I know that’s not the most sustainable option, but it’s real life. Funny thing though, I actually REALLY love the pairs I picked up so I’ll probably have them taken in at the waist if I lose weight.

My tops were pretty easy because I tend to go for oversized fits, BUT with the addition of the higher waisted denim I can wear my closer fitting tops and still feel life my outfit is flattering.

My point in all of this is: I think it’s important to make an effort to look like yourself after giving birth (I’m not talking right away… I lived in leggings & sweatpants while I was still healing!), and buying a SMALL amount of clothing that flatters your shape may do just that.

So hopefully this lookbook will give you some inspiration for ways to look cute without relying on JUST leggings and tunics.

So with that! Let’s get into the outfits:
