Remixed » Shades of Purple

Hello Everyone! I am having a wonderful week! My sister in law came to visit and H&M just opened their second location in Houston, TX. YAY! So I’m going to take a nice long shopping trip to H&M and I hope to score some great finds.



This blouse was purchase from Ann Taylor Loft and is one of my favorite shirts from that season. The makeshift bow is something I rarely see and it’s so cute. After losing the baby weight, I felt better physically and this blouse was one of the first ones I purchased after the weight loss. I’m not sure if the weight gain contributed to my health decline or it could have been stress from the new baby. There were nights I could not fall asleep. My back ached no matter how firm the mattress was. During the day, my upper shoulders and neck were stiff and knotted. Massages and therapy only alleviated the symptoms, which always came back.

I am so much better now. I’m back at the gym doing strength training and that part really helps my back.

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

    1. I’m sorry you’re having back pains too. I too wonder if it’s because of having a desk job.
