Hello again.

IMG_8622IMG_8620IMG_8623IMG_8625Two years ago on April 1st (April fools day) I found out I was pregnant and my world got turned upside down. My husband thought I was playing a prank on him but clearly, I was not.

As I sit here writing this now, I’m watching my now toddler ride around on his Mickey Mouse fire truck while throwing Legos all over our apartment. It took me a very long time to get to this point where I was able to write again, but I knew in my heart I would eventually get there.

I was so unhappy with myself, trying to identify as a mother, trying not to analyze my new body ever chance I had. But now, I feel back to normal. Back to Chelsea. Back to being able to put together outfits that weren’t just a pair of shorts, a tank top and flip flops. I mean, I wore heels more when I was pregnant then I did the last year. Now that is some shit right there.

If you have read any of my previous posts, it was obvious I was dealing with a lot. A new baby, the sudden death of my father by suicide, jumping from job to job, searching for the old me.

I want to start this return off lightly, no one wants to jump right into the heavy stuff.

On that note, I’m totally into this clear bootie/sandal trend. At first it reminded me of my early bikini contest phase, where we would wear clear platform sandals and I was like “ehh I’m not sure”. But after pairing them with the right look, I was feeling ON POINT. I would personally wear them with boyfriend jeans (as photoed) or a jean skirt or shorts. This is a statement shoe, so I wouldn’t over do it on top. A silky tank with a colorful bralette completes the look.
