Sizing Info

The sports bra runs a little big – I typically wear a size small in sports bra but these were running low on sizing so I got the medium and it is a little big. I do wish I had just waited for a re-stock so I could get a small. However, I wore this to my dance classes right after these pictures and it was fine!

The cropped sweatshirt is a medium – it doesn’t have a super loose fit like I wanted so I went up to get a more oversized look!

My leggings are hands down THE best. I gave away all my Lulu ones because they don’t even compare w/these! Plus, these are much cheaper – and even more affordable with the sale pricing. I wore an XS in these pre-pregnancy and the entire pregnancy I wore a size small. Now I can wear either and they both feel fine. I like them a little more snug though because they truly suck you in. They are high waisted which is why I adore them so much – my stomach is your typical 3 month post part stomach… It’s still a bit puffy and soft feeling. I love that these kind of smooth out everything. 😉 *PS. Even before baby these were my favorites just because they feel good and flatter no matter what! (For sizing reference I am a 4/27 in jeans!)

My tennis shoes are not part of the sale but I thought I’d share details because the day I posted these on my IG they were a new arrival and sold out SO quickly. If they come back in stock I would recommend them because they are very comfy but also look so cute with athlesiure looks. I do think they run even larger than the Superstar though. I have to go down to a 7.5 in the Superstar and I think I could’ve used a 7 in these. I didn’t love doing my cardio classes in these though – not sure if it was because they were big or maybe they just aren’t made for that kind of class. 🙂


I thought I’d share a full post on this look for because it is totally on sale right now! I have ab 6-7lbs left to lose after having Luke so I am trying to get it off & honestly having fun, cute workout clothes makes it even more fun. I go to a couple of cardio dance classes for 2 hours a night 2-3x a week. It is really helping me lose some of the weight and it is seriously SO fun. We dance to songs like “Walk It Out” & “Soulja Boy” so it is just fun. There’s a girl in my class that wears sweatshirts which is kind of crazy bc the room is packed and it gets so hot! But I tried it for the first time wearing this look – and I totally see why she does it. You just get super hot & sweaty but it feels SO good and isn’t as ‘crazy’ as it looks.

I have gotten so many questions about losing weight and I feel like I am not the person to talk about weight loss. Honestly I’m not build like the typical blogger I guess – I was reading some comments in a group I am in with other doctors wives where they were saying all bloggers are size 0 and I laughed out loud. I have never been a 0 — I wish! haha. I am just not built like that at all – I definitely have more curve and some thickness. In fact in my family, the girls always gain a lot of weight while pregnant. I was so paranoid about that -especially since I am nearly 30 and at this age pregnancy and weight loss are so different on your body. Everyone says losing the weight at this age is so much harder – and I can totally see that. I wasn’t losing at weight after Luke until I started doing cardio and wearing a fitness watch to keep track of my heart rate and calories burned. I had been trying to watch what I ate but that didn’t do anything – it was the cardio that made a difference. That being said, when people ask me about it –  I always recommend finding a fun cardio class or video to do! I don’t dread it either bc I like the music. 🙂


Also I had snapped a few products yesterday and got SO many questions! I use THIS dry shampoo in foam form and love it!! I get so sweaty in class and I don’t wash my hair but 1-2x a week so this makes a huge difference! And THIS is the under eye brightener de-puffer!
