Happy Friday friends! We’re at my in-laws This weekend, and I’m in full relaxation mode so I’m going to keep things brief today BUT I did want to do a little roundup of postpartum outfits I’ve worn over the last 6 weeks.

And speaking of the last six weeks, I just had my 6 week postpartum Dr. appointment and I am happy to say that the effort I put in to heal my diastasis recti over the last 6 weeks has worked (would you like me do a post about what I did?)! My abs are healed up and I’m excited to get back to my yoga practice. I’ve missed it!

But back to the outfits. As I mentioned in my fall look book from last week, I’ve tried to get back to “normal” dressing right away this time around. I just find it makes me feel better, and more like myself so the extra effort is worth it.

I know that may not be on everyone’s agenda, but it’s helped ME feel more normal.

I’ve also been more into a classic style when it comes to dressing. As I’ve worked on curating my closet more effectively, that particular style has really stood out.

I think my taste has always lent itself to a more dressed up way of dressing, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve just been more drawn to classic styles. So I’m leaning into that feeling… I just have to come to terms with the fact that I’ll probably always be a little overdressed.

So now that I’ve effectively NOT kept this brief, I’ll share my outfits with you. Next week I’ll do a proper week of outfits where I chat about each outfit. This week I’ll just (affiliate) link to everything below each image.

I hope you enjoy!

Until next time,

Karin

    Yes please I would love to see a post about that – I’m currently pregnant and have no idea if I’m going to end up with DR, and it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot (as well as doing everything I can to try and minimise it if it happens during my pregnancy). Love the PP outfits! You’re looking great. Hope all is well xx

    I would love to read about how you got rid of your diastasis recti – I’m 6 weeks postpartum myself, first child, and I’m still trying to work on mine.

      It takes awhile! It was mild this time so it healed quicker, but it took three months after the twins. I can definitely do a post!

    I just discovered your blog via Pinterest and am so inspired by your classic/modern/minimal style – and so thankful that you document this through all the stages of maternity and postpartum. It helps other moms feel confident in how to style themselves and be proud of the body they have.
    I would love to hear how you healed your DR as well. This is something I’m working on following my 5th pregnancy!
