Pink Chambray and Nap Time

"Do you want to take a nap?"
Camo asked Pigtails since everyone else in the house was sleeping.
Pigtails smiled and said "No!"
Yet on Tuesdays when I have to pick up Princess Sparkles from preschool,
Pigtails always falls asleep just before I get to the parking lot
and I have to carry her and Bucket.
 It's difficult -- no, make that impossible -- to schedule nap time.


PINK CHAMBRAY SHIRT - Parasuco (via Loemanns), $7
MATERNITY JEANS - Citizens for Humanity (thrifted), $.50
NURSING TANK - Target
SCARF - Heavenly Treasures
SHOES - Forever 21
CUFF - GS Lillian

Today I attempted to wear jeans, albeit maternity ones.  However they are super long and kinda small.  I actually didn't fit them when I was pregnant (sad, but true).  But my mom, Fair Isle, thrifted them for 50 cents!!!  And they make the perfect post-pregnancy jeans.  For a while I was slightly obsessed with the Loehmanns clearance racks (there's something about getting an additional 30-70% off already reduced prices that gets me everytime!) and I found this pink chambray shirt for $7.

Princess Sparkles takes a nap...

Pigtails doesn't :(
(Camo's pic of Pigtails after asking her to take a nap)

This time around I'm definitely fine with wearing maternity clothes after having the baby.  In fact, I still want to wear my maternity clothes, because this is probably -- no definitely...I think -- the last time I'm ever going to be wearing them.  And like trying to schedule a nap, I know me getting my old body back within a few weeks by just breastfeeding is not going to happen.  Because only celebrities can do that.

I am so glad you are not one of those people who says the weight will just fall off in a week or two from breastfeeding...so not realistic. You look amazing!!

Oh Claire you look amazing! I think you are just beautiful and I can't believe that you were just pregnant! This shade of pink is so flattering on you. Yes, I can TOTALLY relate to the adjustment of 2 kids to 3. Woofta. Get rest when you can, that's all I can say! ;-)

Claire, you're back! Congratulations! Bucket is adorable!!!!!!!!!!
Looking great in this outfit- I love the pink. What is chambray exactly? Is there an "English" equivalent?! 50 cents is an AMAZING bargain!!!!!

Teddi said...

claire you are gorgeous! :) style maven & mommy queen of no naps. i've never been pregnant, & i wear maternity clothes i've find at the thrift store. i just cut out the tags.

Kristin said...

I totally wore maternity clothes for months after the dude!

Sunny & Star said...

All three of you look totally amazing. I hope you manage to schedule yourself some nap time soon.

You look amazing! Who cares if you are wearing maternity jeans. It takes 9 months to put the baby weight on, it should take at least that amount to get it off :) Celebrities are not human, lol!

Just from reading your blog for the last year, your girls are growing up seeing these photos!

Dawn said...

Claire you are amazing and beautiful. Congrats to you! You will get it back, you look like you have it back already. Amazing. Dawn Suitcase vignettes xo

aki! said...

How are you even juggling all your kiddos? If I were you, I'd nap more than the kids!

Plus, you're totally right about kids being ahead on trends. I saw this girl (maybe about middle school age?) who was a family friend wearing a super cute pair of leopard printed flats. Of course, I had to get something like that afterwards.

I agree Claire it took me almost 2 years to go back to shape after maternity, and I am wondering how ceebs can look so great after just a few weeks ! Anyway, you look great with those jeans and I love the shirt!!

Okay, I have literally NO idea how you can look so good after just having a baby! Seriously!! You look amazing, maternity jeans or not! lol

I had a pair of maternity jeans that I outgrew by about 5 months. lol And I wore those all the time after I had my Little Miss. I was almost sad when they became too big! =)

Lidiya said...

Your pink top is gorgeous, both the colour and style is so so cute <3

the ruffle cardigan is great!! hope you have a nice weekend. and haha yea seems like those victoria's secret angels can just pop out a baby and go back on the runway after a few weeks! then again if we were all making as much money as them and have as much resources it's prob be a lot easier!

Juliann Whicker said...

Oh cute outfit! My goodness that pink and scarf and jeans... sigh. You inspire me to get dressed:)

Terri said...

May the breast feeding surprise you with weight loss. I know that with all three of my babies that the weight came off immediately...and then my hair began to fall out. I took bee pollen to correct that hair problem.

Ah, that pink top is divine! I don't know what it is with pink and me lately :) Great with the dark jeans!!
