I knitted this scarf a couple years ago. It was my first major knitting project after learning to knit hats. It’s knitted in a somewhat complicated lacework pattern. I love to bring it out when it’s chilly. The baby alpaca yarn is deliciously soft and cozy. And guess what…
It has a hood!
This outfit is a pretty much my daily uniform (“Momiform” as Shana likes to say) these days: jeggings, a nursing tank, a nursing-and-pooch-friendly button-up or drapey shirt, boots or flats, plus accessories.
I find having a uniform, especially in the postpartum days, immensely useful. Of all the stages of motherhood, postpartum is the hardest to dress for in my opinion. The post-baby bod is just….weird. Proportions are different, nursing boobs are bigger, waistline is thicker (although I’m making headway on that), and time and energy for dressing are at a premium. A uniform that is at least somewhat stylish, that you can throw on in a hurry after you hopefully got a shower and before everyone is awake and wanting to be fed… can do wonders for your day. I’m not gonna lie; I’d love to be wearing adorable dresses and tights and skirts on a daily basis, but I gotta be where I am. And that is in jeggings, most likely wearing a child strapped to my body.
Regardless of my style limitations at this point in my life, I can still wear Frilling accessories like my hooded scarf, a cool bracelet, a fabulous bag, and comfy-yet-stylish wedge booties. These Toms booties have been a gem of my postpartum wardrobe this season. And the bracelets were some of my fave Christmas gifts.
