Expectation vs reality. Lets talk about that a bit.  For the past few weeks I have been desparatley trying on my old clothes before I was pregnant with boy #2, thinking about when I can squeeze back into that silky satin Chloe dress or back into my faves from C/meo . And It struck me, I just had him 4 weeks ago! Why am I trying so hard to back into those things? Why obsess? Well, as a fashion, style, beauty whatever blogger, I feel I need to get back into my groove. It has been rough, I want to do all the things and yet can not.

The expectations vs reality is really kicking into high gear. Take for example, the photo above, I am wearing heels. I am wearing the perfect white peep toe heels from Aldo. But, the reality is, being home all day I was really wearing these gold loafers.

The reality is this, barefooted or in shoes I can just throw on. Not glamorous is it? Although the heels are gorgeous, I had to be practical. My littles, made me need that mindset, as my balance is still off from baby E and his early arrival. I have started some yoga again. Fingers crossed my balance returns. I have worn some heels before since, but not like I did.

I am glowing here, no elvish magic there. The expectation of photos was there and the reality is the over exposure of white. What can you do, life is not picture perfect is it? Even the pictures.

And lets talk these shorts, they are Alice and Olivia, when I got them from the Real Real, the site said S for size. I purchased them, new with tags. The reality is they are a size 8. Right now they fit, right now they are amazing. But, we shall see what happens next. I do love them! I love a lot of Alice and Olivia designs.

So, I am learning to cope, breast pump and all.

Have you had any expectations lately that you had to just accept as non ideal?

    I hear you loud and clear! It took me a bit longer than it did with my first baby to fit back into my clothes, but it took 9 months to grow the baby, I can’t expect to get back into my clothes in a few weeks! You look fantastic! And those gold loafers are just as cute as the heels!
