Here’s her e-mail:
Help me spend my money! What should I get?
Keep this in mind….I pretty much have nothing that fits right now and I need lots of good basics.
Congrats on the new baby!!!
I loved your entire e-mail…but “PTMT me” was definitely my favorite line.
You will LOVE these.
They are comfy and slimming! HELLO! Perfect for a post-baby body!
Click HERE for the jeans.
Several reviewers say they sized down, but I did not. For size reference, I got a 4 in the jeans.
(Click HERE for the original post on these jeans if you want to read the full review.)
in black found HERE.
It’s great for a post baby body too.
It looks great with a 1/2 tuck, but it also looks just as good worn like a tunic (with jeans).
However, I don’t think it’s tunic-y enough to wear with leggings (it’s a little too clingy)…but like I said, it does look great worn out with skinny jeans. If you order this shirt, definitely size down. I’m wearing an x-small.
And remember, I only recommend the dark colors in this shirt due to the fact that light colors show too many wrinkles. Black is the one I recommend the most.
Some type of UGG boot.
And if you’re getting the leggings, go ahead and get at least one of THESE tunics that is 40% OFF!
The solid black one that I have is now 50% OFF…making it $33.98. Click HERE.
You can dress them up or down…..and they look great with leggings…but they also look awesome with jeans! And again, they are great for everybody, but especially for a new post-baby body! 🙂
And I know that this next item is expensive and probably isn’t in your Christmas money budget, but if I’m trying to PTMT you, THIS bag is definitely required.
I hope you like at least a couple of my suggestions!
I’m still contemplating it.
I LOVE IT, but since I placed a pretty large order over the weekend (the tee, vest, and boots I just mentioned), I’m thinking I’m going to wait until those come in. If I keep all of the them, then I probably won’t order the cardi. But if any of those items go back, well then this cardi can just go ahead and COME TO MAMA.
I love how it’s styled so simply in the picture with just a grey tee and jeans! CUTE!
And it would be cute with booties, tall boots, flats, converse, or even those grey sneakers above!
And just for fun, here’s how I plan on styling the hooded tee and the military vest since I already have the other pieces…
military vest HERE / converse HERE / kate spade silver studs now sold out, but you can get the navy glitter studs HERE
I’m thinking I’m going to be all sorts of Sporty Spice in this outfit.
In a good way.
I’ve got one more e-mail for you before we go today!
I received this one just last night.
Let’s call this girl “Elizabeth”. We decided since we were going to be talking about her girls that we would use a pseudonym. 🙂
I don’t comment or email blog people. I’ve emailed you once before, so this will be my second time contacting someone in the blogosphere. It just feels kind of stalkerish.
Anywho! The jeans are ah-mazing! But you already know this. They remind me of the softness of the old navy rockstar jeans, but that’s where the comparison ends. These are good quality, flattering and just a great jean. So pumped for these.
Now let’s talk about the GIRLS!! I’m a busty girl myself and the thought of ordering a bra online is totally laughable. But the thought of going to get measured and fitted with three littles in tow is even more laughable. Even when I do get that done, when I get home I’m not happy with them and switch back to one I’ve had forever and is a hot mess. SO I did it. I ordered a bra online. And let me tell you, it is insane! I just texted my sister ( who is also a busty girl) and said GET. IT. NOW! I took it out of the packaging and I’m like thin straps? What? This will never work. WRONG!!! This thing is redonkulous. So comfortable, keeps the girls where they should be. Loving it!!! As soon as they are back on sale I’m ordering 3 more. I should have just trusted you and done that to begin with!
Thanks for the jeans, but the bra = life changing! Jean, leggings, shorts are all great. But a great bra is a must have every single day. You can’t look great in your clothes without the right foundation underneath!
On another note my husband asked me a few days ago, what are all these nordstroms charges??? Whoops!!
Have a happy new year!Elizabeth
Elizabeth, thank you so much for taking the time to e-mail me! I absolutely love hearing about it when you girls like my recommendations! Totally makes my day!!!!!
Now, I know you’re not going to get 3 of them…but if you’re feeling sassy, then THIS Natori is on sale right now.
Other Natori bras on sale HERE.
