Had another work meeting today! Once again, it felt so good to get out and do something work related. But I have to say it was tough to get motivated this morning. The hope to give Molly the best life possible is the only thing that got me in the shower and dressed. I got almost no sleep last night. Molly is definitely in a “fussy” stage right now. Maybe a growth spurt? I’m not sure. But I was up every hour feeding her and soothing her. It was rough I’m not going to lie and my lack of sleep is starting to catch up with me. But I’m glad I pushed through and went to my meeting this morning. Doing stuff that’s work related makes me remember that I’m still me. I’m still Ali. I’m not SOLELY Molly’s mommy.
I had Kevin take a pic of my on my way out the door because I wanted to share this look with you guys! Everything in my outfit is budget friendly and part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! The burgundy top is so comfy and stretchy. Click HERE to see the full shirt. It’s great to wear with a high waisted skirt like in these pics, but it can also just be worn with jeans. So it can be either casual or dressy! An it’s under $30. I’m wearing a Medium.
This high waisted skirt is so soft too and comfortable. Can you tell comfort is a theme for me these days? Plus Molly came to this meeting with me and the high waisted skirt allowed me to easily lift my shirt to breastfeed while still covering my tummy and easily use a nursing cover to feed in public. I’m wearing a medium in the skirt.
The blush jacket is so great. It’s really pulls this look together and it’s something I’ll wear again and again. You can see me wearing it HERE too. And like everything else I’m wearing, it’s on MAJOR sale! I really can’t get enough of the Nsale! See a more casual Nsale look that I love and rocked the other day HERE (The top is only $20!)
Anyway, getting out and having a meeting today really made me feel good despite how tired I feel. I am so lucky that I was able to bring Molly cause if I couldn’t I wouldn’t have gone to the meeting honestly. She’s still so little and work stuff comes in WAY second to her. What stuff/activities make you feel good as a new mom? What helps you get through sleepless nights?
