A simple jersey dress has always been my favorite summer attire. So it is no surprise that this black maxi dress has become my favorite. Its beauty lies in simplicity. I like the cut that runs up the thigh. It adds a bit of sexiness. I got it by pure chance in H&M. I went there to buy a pair of pants (palazzo style) for summer. Right now I feel the most comfortable in loose pants.
People keep telling me how good I look so soon after giving birth but I don’t feel good at all. I know that I can not expect to be the same size I was before I got pregnant (at least not two months after giving birth) but it is hard to really believe it.
Our culture is obsessed with perfect bodies that are presented on social media. Celebrities, models and bloggers who look perfect few months after giving birth. I wonder how they do it. And how do they manage to prepare great looking food, write articles and take photos every day? They either have an army of nannies, photographer and a make-up artist on hand or they are UFOs.
So for now I am on a social media cold turkey. I will not follow those “perfect women” who make me feel bad about myself. It is a simple but effective strategy. I noticed that I am the most critical when I compare myself to others.
