|Daniel Rainn Kailynn Split Back Blouse|
Next up, this sleeveless blouse with such pretty florals on the sides. I adore this. The details are hard to see in the back, but the construction is interesting and effective. It is slimming and fluttery and long in the back. Again, the pattern is much bigger than I would naturally choose for myself, but florals are easy to love, especially in this season. I love it with the jeans from my first fix and it looks so dressy with the black skirt I got in an earlier fix as well. I have still not lost baby weight (thank you, breastfeeding), so this top just feels really good and hides the bad.

Speaking of pretty....this color is so lovely. It's the color I wanted my bridesmaids dresses to be almost two decades ago, and couldn't find them anywhere. It's the color of a vintage cameo. I wish this came with a built-in cami like the the sheer blouses I got during the winter, but this is otherwise perfect. This is more the scale of pattern I am used to and I feel perfectly at ease in this. Sure to be a favorite.
|Mystree Batya Textured Skirt|
I wasn't sure if I could pull off a lace skirt, but I pinned a bunch in hopes that Amanda could find something for me, and she did! It is fully lined and is comfortable to move in. I knew I wanted to pair it with something tough right away and I quickly reached for my navy blue/black cotton voile shirt from another earlier fix. The result is something I feel good about, and Whimsy also approved!
This fix was particularly meaningful and helpful to me because it was a real time saver. The last few weeks have been far busier than what is sustainable, and I needed help to transition to a slower pace. Having something nice to wear on a much-needed date with my husband made our dinner out doubly enjoyable and maximized the good that came from resting from the physical and emotional work we have been so heavily involved in lately. Not worrying about clothes is something that frees me up to enjoy my family more, and to accept this season of my life when I'm still not physically what I would like to be.
