Cleaning Out Your Closet Post-Baby

Oh my goodness you guys, cleaning out my closet has been an experience. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, its taken multiple attempts, but I think I am finally in a good place to start building a new wardrobe.

I got rid of anything that just simply didn’t fit ( I kept a few things that were super close since I still have a little pooch). Well this alone cleaned out A LOT. Next was the items that were NOT flattering. Just because something fits does not mean that it should be worn. There goes more stuff. Now both of these steps required trying on every. single. piece of clothing. Let me tell you it was not fun for the majority of it but I feel refreshed now, and its easier to get dressed in the morning.

Here are the several things that went through my head during this process and I’m sure will/have gone through yours:

  • Um did this s–t EVER fit?
  • There’s no way this fit before.
  • Alright this isn’t going over my butt anytime soon. 
  • And I can’t move my arms because my boobs are too big for this shirt. 
  • This one isn’t even going to go over the girls 
  • Whoa my butt looks even better in this than before 
  • Can’t breath
  • I’m going to need help getting this off! 
  • Why did I ever buy this? 

And the list goes on and on and on… But it’s okay ladies! Your body changed and it probably will never go back to exactly what it was before (hello no amount of working out can move your hips backs in), so let’s learn to work with it together! Starting next week I’m going to be starting a new series called (drum roll please): 

Fashion Friday’s 

(Catchy, I know).

We can work through this whole dressing our new mom bod together! Because I don’t know about you but I still want to look cute and put together! 

Tell me below what you would like to see in the coming weeks. What do you need help styling? What do you need help highlighting? 

See you soon!

Love Always, 

Sam

  1. Oh how I know how you feel! But it’s so hard to get rid of stuff and then feel like you closet is empty. There is a weird security in having all those ill-fitting clothes!

  2. This post made me smile SO much cause I have been there…3 times and I came to terms that my body is different that, THIS is a womans body!!! You have hips that carried a baby, and “pudge” that your body stored to be sure to feed your little one!! It may seem strange and foreign to you but its beautifully designed!

  3. My daughter turned three this April and I just cleaned out my closet this weekend lol. Shortly after having her I convinced myself that I would lose all the weight and my body would be exactly as it was before. How naïve I was! I lost the weight but my body is still different plus, I don’t really want to wear the size 0 Hollister shorts of my high school days.

    I’d love to see a post about mom style for us young moms! I’m only 24 and still want to look young and trendy while being conservative and comfortable.

    • Hey better late than never! And I totally agree I had to get rid of some of those shorts and things that just aren’t going to ever be appropriate again. I thought the same thing! (I’m also 24) and although I’ve lost most of the weight by the scale’s standard I’m shaped differently now. Check out my newest post for style essentials and I will definitely be posting more of my personal tips and advice and we’re the same age so it should work great for you too!
