Happy Monday Ladies! Hope you had a great weekend.

We're slowly emerging from our cocoon, although I think we're still in the honeymoon phase and I expect things to get more manic before we experience any normalcy.

My little Lucas mostly slept his first two weeks on the outside which thankfully allowed me to recuperate rather quickly. This weekend was a completely different story but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it was an anomaly and he'll go easy on us.

The weather in NYC has been glorious. It's the kind of weather everyone always talks about but we only experience a few weeks each year. While I remember being scared to take Sebastian out when he was this age, I haven't had much of a choice with Lucas. Sebastian started pre-school last week and we've been getting outside a fair amount. I find he sleeps better after some fresh air and I feel less cagey. Plus, we received this gorgeous new Stokke Xplory to review. It's the most luxurious stroller I've ever laid eyes on. Practically, I have both positive feedback and things that I think can be improved so I'll write up a full review with specs as soon as I can but you'll notice from the photo of my sleeping prince, he's certainly comfy!

I'd forgotten what pain it is to dress when you have to whip out your boobs every couple of hours. I've mostly been sticking to tanks and button downs for easy access.

Last pregnancy I lived in leggings but when I met with Style for Hire at the Westfield Style Lounge at Garden State Plaza and asked about postpartum fashion, they poo-pooed leggings and stretch pants in favor of jeans and dresses because their lack of structure doesn't allow you to feel when you're over-eating or gaining weight, which I think is a great point that I'll try to keep in mind this time around.

Any postpartum fashion tips you'd like to share?

Have a glamorous week!
