Last weekend I attended a LARGE bridal shower (like, 200 people large). Normally, I’m very excited about this type of thing because it’s an excuse to buy a new dress, get all dolled up, and eat a lot of good food. I was a little more stressed than usual because it was my first time out to an event of this scale post baby, and I was sure to run into a lot of people that I hadn’t seen in a while. Additionally, I’ve been getting a lot of “you look great for just having a baby” comments. Which, ironically, have been having a confidence-sucking, rather than infusing effect. Like, what? I don’t look good in general, I only look good for someone who just had a baby? Ultimately, I selected a “power outfit” with structured shoulders and metal tipped shoes that could do the talking for me. “Yeah, I still got some bad ass confidence…what?” Oh, and Jax looked pretty adorable too!
Love, love love these shoes. Which are the affordable version of Stuart Weitzman steel toed pumps I blogged about here.
