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.
