I’ve hardly spent any time away from my little darling, but this week I got 2 hours of me time and went on a little shopping trip. Let’s just say that still having additional inches and baby weight to lose doesn’t make for great mommy self-esteem, so it was nice to try on some pretty dresses and get some lovely lingerie to boost the spirits.
Welcome to my dressing room… shopping at Express
1) First I tried on this fun little crop top and pencil skirt. I’ve been wanting a crop top forever, but clearly that wasn’t an option for the last 9 months for me, so it was fun to try this on for size and see that it worked! I also liked the look because both the top and bottom could be paired with other pieces to create a completely different look. (purchase here)
2) This bandage dress with mesh cut outs was a fun one too - I adore zipper detailing. It’s definitely a bit more of a body conscious look-at-me dress. (purchase here)
3) This LBD was the reason I came to Express in the first place. It’s very on-trend with the sheer cut outs and the cropped feature. The cut and color make it slimming for an hourglass figure. (purchase here)

What did I end up getting? DRUMROLL… #1 crop top and skirt! It fit my personal style the best – feminine with a bit of edge, and I also really like that I’ll be able to mix and match with it. In all honesty, I would have loved to purchase all of the outfits I tried, but I figure one look is enough to boost my spirits without causing closet overload!
As for undergarments, I’m a firm believer that the underneath should be as lovely as the outerwear. Some beauties that caught my eye at Victoria Secret today below. Which ones I bought there will remain untold!
