Twirling in Tulle

Embracing my post-baby body with a tulle skirt - my favorite skirt of all time.

Because a tulle skirt is the best kind of skirt!

I can’t stress the importance of knowing your own body. I’m a firm believer in self-love and embracing every square inch of yourself – both inside and out.

When I gave birth to Leo, my body went through a lot of changes. Though it took some time, I finally came out of my shell and started appreciating myself. Pregnancy and childbirth puts you through so much. Heck, I should have burst out of that shell, held my head high, and screamed with great pride with all that I did. It’s no easy feat, let me tell you.

But that’s not how it went.

In reality, it’s as if I had to introduce the new me to… well, me. Yes, my body went through a lot. While some things shifted and changed, it just took getting used to.

I can finally say that I’m happy. Yes, there is always room for improvement, but it feels great to be comfortable in my skin again.

I decided to celebrate with my favorite wardrobe piece of all-time: the airy, romantic, and classic tulle skirt. I have always had one in my closet. When I spotted this one on sale at Forever21 (score!), I grabbed it, attempted to try it on, but then Leo started crying, so I just paid for it and left. True story.

  1. I’ve had those shopping experiences in the past when I just had to pay and leave too! Tulle skirts are always adorable!

  2. My favorite part about this skirt is that it can be dressed up with fancy shoes or dressed down a bit with cowboy boots.

  3. I love this skirt! I actually just had my second baby, and it has been even more difficult this time around to get back to being comfortable in my body. I might have to grab a tulle skirt as a treat for myself! It reminds me of my ballet days. What a great idea!
