Time to dump the dumpy mom look.

I know, I know, I just had a baby two months ago, give myself a little bit of a break. It took months to feel human again after Joaquin and I looked it. But this time around I just jumped back into real life, no time to sit around and adjust to life with a newborn. In many ways it was much easier to get used to having two than to make that initial adjustment of a new baby.

So I feel human, I act for the most part human, temper tantrums aside of course, so why don't I look it? I mean, I guess I look like a human, just not the one I'm used to.

I feel dumpy. I'm over 25 pounds than where I was before I got pregnant, my clothes don't fit, my hair was always in a ponytail, putting on make-up is a small miracle. What happened to me? Where did I go? I've always tried to be semi-stylish but stretchy or maternity pants worn after the baby is actually out don't really scream HOT, you know?

So today I took the first step towards trying to look like me again, I went and got my haircut. It's short. A bit shorter than what I was prepared for, but I think I like it. Did I mention it's short?

I chopped my hair!

I chopped my hair!

I'm going to have to play with it a bit to get a better feel for doing it. But no more ponytail and pulled back bangs! Now I'm forced to have some style.

The salon I went to was in Hillcrest so I got a chance to stop at Buffalo Exchange, which I haven't done in years. I found a pretty amazing Oilily skirt for super cheap. I wore it last night to a friends Birthday party with my new haircut and even make-up. I actually felt pretty good, the opposite of a dump really.

Now, all I have to do is get this extra poundage off...sooner rather than later. Preferably.

You look great!!
I might have to follow your lead and go with a short cut too. I'm really hating this ponytail thing.

Super cute - love the cut! I stopped wearing makeup when I stopped working, but I think maybe I could wear some now & again. Wouldn't want to shock the mamas, though. ;-)
