Although I'm still two years away from thirty I have realized that this past year a lot of things have changed. My style included. Amongst other things such as my body (thanks to my three beautiful babes that it carried.) My taste in furniture and home decor is evolving as well. I think back to the days when I thought everything in my home had to be brand new. I couldn't wait for the day that I could purchase all new furniture. It's seems as though when I hit twenty-seven I just woke up. I remember thinking, "Do I really care?" Honestly, the answer is no. I started truly finding my personal style when I found other bloggers with similar taste. I did an Instagram clean out and started following other accounts that were like mine. Since I did this my head has been more clear, I don't feel negative somedays for not having new things and I appreciate what I do have much more. One of my favorite past times since changing my lifestyle is thrift shopping. Not even kidding. I have started finding the best little nic nacs for our home this way. 

A few months after I had my third baby I realized the clothes that I had in my closet weren't really doing it for me. Not only did I not care for the style of them, since my body had changed I didn't like the way I looked in them. The older I get the more I realize that I am now drawn to less super bright outfits. When I was ready to update my closet I knew my staple pieces would come from PinkBlush. Their pieces truly never let me down all from pre, during and post pregnancies. They also have so many style options that I'm able to find things as my style is evolving! 

My everyday "mom outfit" for taking care of the kids and home is always a cozy cardigan, a tank and jeans. I found this light pink cardigan and I find myself wearing it multiple times a week. For my for dress up pieces I knew the color scheme I had in mind and this dress was a perfect fit. I find myself leaning more towards darker colors these days and I love it. 

I also want to say- something I've learned and feel like I have talked about numerous times since having my last baby is about postpartum bodies. Being closer to thirty, having my third baby and having them all within five years took a toll on my body. We are almost one year postpartum and I'm starting to truly love my body again. Instead of focusing on the number that is one the scale, I'm focusing on health. I believe feeling comfortable in your body has a lot to do with feeling good in the clothes you are wearing. I know for me that I feel so much better when my clothes fit and I'm not trying to get into a pair of jeans I've had for ten years. Things change over time. Styles and our bodies. It's perfectly normal to change things up from time to time. 

If you are on the hunt for a couple of great PinkBlush pieces I highly recommend these two!  You can find the Light Pink Cardigan here. It is available in three different colors. You can also find the Green Floral Layered Ruffle Sleeve Dress here. It's really flowy and comfortable. I love it for throwing it on those days I want to fee a little more dressed up.
