Kimono comfort as my wardrobe go-to.
I feel like I’ve been sporting the “open-blouse” look for quite a while now. Since being pregnant, my go-to uniform has been a dress shirt (unbuttoned, of course) and/or a loose cardigan (for winter months, in particular).
I find it a little unfair to deem my body as “post-baby,” considering I gave birth over a year ago. I might be my own worst critic (actually, I probably am), but I still find myself reaching over for looser clothing items in hopes to cover up any of my insecurities.
This kimono offers a bright alternative to my large collection of neutral-coloured cardigans. I gravitated towards the piece for its mix of fabrics and textures. Those burgundy flowers have a touch of velour to them. Absolute perfection: so soft, so fun, and so much character.
Mamas: what clothing items do you shop for? How long did it take you to feel comfortable in your skin post-pregnancy?
