What to Wear Postpartum

Bloggy friends, sorry for the hiatus in LBS.com blogging.  This post about my desire to stop having to wear clothing with panels should explain why my inspiration for daily shopping has waned.  Read more at Momaha.com today for tips on dressing a postpartum figure!

Lomellina® Swimwear – too pretty to get wet?

This J.Crew Lomellina® one-shoulder maillot has me in love with the idea of wearing a swimsuit – not an easy feat.

The Lomellina® technical fabric is sourced from one of Italy’s top mills, and is as flattering as it is comfortable.

The criss-cross draping of this one-piece suit is also very figure flattering and the two-way stretch gives you a little extra assistance in the “holding in” department too.

At first glance, I thought this bathing suit would leave awful tan lines and then considered that I change up my bathing suits often for precisely that reason.  The thick one-shoulder style is not only sophisticated, but would be perfect for keeping it in place while I was wading, chasing and swimming with my kids in the pool this summer.

And the “red chili” color?  To. Die. For.  Especially for a blonde like me!

Daily Covet: Botkier Sunflower Tote

Botkier Evans Tote, Sunflower, lastcall.com $345

This adorable sunflower Botkier tote so reminds me of summer.  And lemons, lemonade, hard lemonade… ok, anyway… since my summer days are usually spent toting kids and their stuff around, totes are a major staple for me.

This Botkier Evans Tote even has some edgy hardware so no one thinks I’m just your normal, everyday mom!  And it’s on sale at lastcall.com, so I’ll have more to spend on a new bathing suit!

Daily Covet: Ask, and Ye Shall Receive

Levels of Discovery Monster Double Revolving Bookcase, Zulily.com $97.99

My weekly blog for Momaha.com put the call out for gift ideas for a two-year-old, whose five-year-old brother already has everything.  Zulily.com must read my blogs, because in my email this morning, came these adorable revolving book shelves.

There’s only one problem:  Finding a wall or corner that doesn’t already contain furniture (furniture that is currently housing books I might add!)

Well, if I can’t find space for it, that doesn’t mean you can’t!
