Textured Sweater

9:43 AM Mary Conley 8 Comments

Feeling the winter weather a little too much. I hear so many people talk about how excited they are that the weather is getting cold and that it finally feels like winter. I personally am completely fine with it not getting colder than 45 degrees. That is how cold it was a couple days ago and I was perfectly chilly but not freezing. Yesterday was a different story. 
Don’t let me trick you, I was so cold outside only wearing this sweater, luckily I wasn’t out for too long. 
 Chunky sweaters have been my go to lately since I have yet to find my winter coats (this move really has me missing a lot of things). I am loving sweaters with a lot of texture to them. 

 The Breakdown:
This red and tan sweater is so beautiful, there is so much depth with the different textures. Black, white and every shade in between has always been my color choice for winter sweaters. I really wanted to be bold this winter and add in more color. I had worn this sweater for Thanksgiving at my parents house and I look forward to wearing in through the Christmas season. 
I may have gone a little tan overload with this look. These sneakers are so comfortable and they have been my go to shoes when I’m out and about with Myles. I talked about my love of these sneakers paired with my Fawn diaper bag in this post. Before I knew it everything but my jeans was matching! 
I wanted to switch my hairstyle up, I often switch my part but I wanted more of a change. I decided to do a half up top knot. My waves were still looking good so I didn’t want to put all of my hair up. How do you guys feel about this style? I heard someone say they didn’t like the look of a “man bun”, this doen’t look like a man bun does it!? Talking about my hair leaded me to...

... Mommy confession:
Since I have had a baby, new little things have been happening to me. Some things I was warned about from my sister and other friends who have had children. Even with a warning I’m still caught off guard. This months post baby “something” is that I am losing my hair. It started to fall out more than usual about a month ago, which would be when Myles was 3 months old. I have seen new moms with little baby hairs growing in around their hairline and I always knew it would happen to me. I didn’t realize how bald I would look though. I already have a pretty far back hairline to begin with. This hairstyle really accentuates the lack of hair I have right now. Pretty sure I’ll hold off on wearing a half up top knot until my hair grows back. 

Has this happened to any of you? If so, I would really love some tips or tricks, like can this losing hair process be slowed down? I guess I have my estrogen levels to thank for this new mommy issue.

  1. One hundred percent! Around 4 months while I was at the beach discovered due to a sunburnt scalp and the obvious crazy shedding I was doing. Now that my little one is 9 m/o there is no more shedding or baldness and instead short layers (bangs?) around my hairline, beside my ears and under my ponytail. It's bananas!

    1. Any tips for controlling those short layers? I’m thinking I will need to invest in some super cute headbands!

  2. Happened the exact same way for me. I rocked the old man receding hairline for a while! Honestly there's nothing you can do to prevent it. Taking your prenatal swill help it grow back faster. Just know that it WILL grow back, and there are plenty of hairstyles you can wear to cover if it bothers you :)
    Also, I think the topknot is cute!

  3. It happened to me too! I think it was about 3-4 months. And unfortunately it happened again when I stopped breastfeeding! I already have very thin hair so I felt like it look terrible, but then I would look at my little peanut and remember that it will grow back over time :)

    1. Again after breastfeeding!? Eeek! It does make sense since there will be another change in hormone levels. I thank Myles all the time for the little changes due to him haha, it is very much worth it though!

  4. It was awful for me too. I had such luxuriously thick hair during my pregnancy and felt bald after Harper was born. Luckily continuing my prenatal vitamin and an extra iron pill helped and then I also started a hair, skin and nails supplement and it really helped as well. Love your blog!!!
