Old Friends

Saturday, February 18, 2017

It's taken me nine months to be comfortable enough to leave Coco and take some time for myself. Nine. Months. I've left her maybe once or twice for work, but otherwise her and I are attached at the hip. It is so amazing to be able to be with her all the time, but I also forgot just how necessary having a little time to breathe and be yourself without a baby can be. So much of your identity gets wrapped up in being a mom that it gets really easy to lose yourself. I am convinced that it is of the utmost importance to get away every now and then and be who you are sans baby. Maybe it's just me, but as amazing as having a baby is, it is also insanely suffocating, and being able to even just go on a walk with an old friend can set the whole world right again, and fill you up with positive energy to take home to bb. It's a win-win.











TARGET TOP & HAT :: MARSHALLS PANTS :: FAMOUS FOOTWEAR SHOES :: GIFTED EARRINGS :: PURSE C/O COACH :: LIPSENSE IN COCOA C/O BOMBSHELL COSMETICS

I realized once I started getting ready to go out that is was a damn good thing Coach sent me this purse because all my bags besides the diaper bag are packed and there was no way I was going to lug that around with me to lunch and coffee with a friend. So I planned one last outfit around the bag and I must say that it's my favorite. In fact, I think I just need to put this outfit on repeat because I am obsessed with it. Also, this hairstyle, am I right? I have some extensions I want to stick in next time so I can have super long braids! I'm going to be hair modeling for a local salon again soon (see the previous hair style here), and my hair is going to get chopped a bit, so I'm trying my best get the most out of the length while I can.
