I’ll be honest with you. I haven’t worn a super sexy bra in a looooong time. Somehow I’ve already made it a year breastfeeding (so hard but also so worth it and so rewarding!) and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, so I’ve been wearing super plain (but functional) bras and tanks. I haven’t really minded so far, but after a year of this, I’m starting to regret skimping on nursing bras!!! It’s safe to say I’m a bit tired of the drab ones I wear day in and day out.;) …And to my husband, I’m sorry!
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, it’s amazing the profound difference that getting ready can make in my mood and overall outlook on life! Spending a little time doing my hair, makeup and getting a cute outfit put together makes me feel productive, fresh, and ready to take on the world. Or a day filled with chasing after my 13 month old and trying to minimize the damage that his mischievous little soul can create. It’s usually the latter, but I feel like some days that IS conquering the world! (Because it totally is, am I right?!) Parenting is a FULL TIME job people!
Well the same goes for under garments; I find that if I’m wearing something sexy or flirty (even if no one sees it!) my confidence level goes way up! I don’t think this is vain, it’s just a by-product of taking time for yourself. It’s not selfish to do something for you, by the way! Whether you’re a mom or not (but especially if you’re a mom!), you need to invest in yourself and fill yourself up so that you can then invest in others. You’re of no use to anyone if you’re running on fumes and on empty all the time. What can you give to others if you haven’t filled your own cup first?
When Adore Me reached out to me and invited me to be included in their #flirtyfallflatlay campaign, I saw it as a great opportunity to encourage you all (and myself included!) to invest in yourselves. We can’t get around the fact that fall is the season for #sweaterweather and is an ideal time to stock up on chunky knits and cozy cardigans, but don’t forget to get something to go underneath those sweaters! Find a flirty, sexy piece that makes you feel like a boss. Confidence is beautiful and it’s one of the best accessories, in my opinion!
We all know how awesome Pinterest is, so for more inspiration on how you can incorporate sexy into your fall looks, check out Adore Me’s Pinterest page. And for more fall outfit inspiration, check out my fall style board! Sometimes I can get a little pin-happy, but it’s hard not to with all these gorgeous fall #ootd out there! 😉
No matter what it may look like for you, take time to invest in yourself this week!
