Real talk: life with a newborn = I do laundry like once every two weeks, aaaaaand usually the impetus is that either Chase or I or both of us have run out of clean underwear. Yep. How’s that for a glimpse into our private lives? Want to know another confession? When we moved into our new house (in March, mind you), I pulled a bunch of summer clothes out of storage bins and put them in hampers to be washed for the upcoming season. Mmmmmyeah, those hampers are still sitting in from of my washing machines untouched. Ooops.
Okay you guys – confession: did I ever think I’d be caught dead in Crocs? No. No not really. Not really at all. Then Crocs did something fabulous and serrrrriously upped their game in the variety and cuteness departments. The Willardsons have now become a little Crocs family and we’re not even ashamed about it! Wanna know why? Cuz the Crocs we be rockin’ are all sorts of adorable and seriously the most comfortable shoes I have ever slipped my foot into. No. Seriously. We teamed up with Zappos today to show you some of Crocs’ new cutie designs, just in time to hit up all of our favorite summer spots. Crocs has soooo many cute styles right now you guys – and when you get them at Zappos, you get killer customer service and no shipping charges. Woot! Check out Crocs at Zappos!

As a follow up to last Thursday’s post where I shared my top tips for dressing your postpartum body, I wanted to pull together a roundup for you of some of my favorite oversized or flowy tops (see tip 1 in the post above!). A couple notes…

Real talk: somewhere along the line, I missed the memo that said ‘In order to be a style blogger, you must be a pregnancy unicorn – the kind that only gains weight in her belly when she’s pregnant and is back to being tiny 2-4 weeks after giving birth.’ Oooooops. Yeah that’s so NOT me you guys. Shannon gains 50-60 lbs when she’s prego. Shannon blows up urrrrrrywhere when she’s prego. Where breastfeeding helps most women shed their baby weight, Shannon actually doesn’t lose weight until she stops nursing (literally you guys… with Jack, I got back in the gym and started eating better 6 weeks after he was born, and in 6 months I only lost 6 lbs. SIX lbs. My mama told me she was the same way – couldn’t lose weight while she was nursing. I weaned Jack at 6 months (long story) and the rest of the weight came flying off as soon as I did. Cray.). Anywhoooooo… my point is that if you too feel like you’re no pregnancy unicorn – like you have to work really, really hard to get it back after giving birth and it seems to take foreverrrrrr, you are not alone. I am here for you (cue the Michael Jackson music). I am here to make you feel better about it and I’m here to hopefully help while you’re going through it. Cuz I’ll be going through it toooooo! Word? Let’s be friends.
Ok, so to that point, I wanted to share with you today my top 5 tips for dressing the postpartum bod situation. Here we go…
