My Secret Weapon


Friday is finally here, and she brought wine! I love a good casual Friday because let's be honest we're all headed to happy hour at 5:01pm so why not look great in the process?

If you follow me on Instagram then you have seen my try on sessions where I have professed my love for Spanx leggings! Honestly though, they quickly became my favorite piece of clothing after childbirth. I wore them before too but I didn't truly appreciate all they can do until after I had Cashton. 

I will level with you, losing the baby weight isn't always an easy road and tons of people struggle with it. Learning to love my body after pregnancy was a whole other story. I don't know that I will ever be back to my "cheer" body but I'm pretty comfortable in my skin now,  but that wasn't always the case. After having a baby my body didn't even remotely feel "normal" for at least 7 months. 

I went through about 6 months of strict dieting and exercise where NOTHING was happening. It was the most discouraging time. Here I am trying to balance work, workout, new baby and hormones and I felt like my body hated me! It wasn't until my hormones started to go back to normal that I saw a change in my body for the better, and that sucks because it just takes time for your body to adjust.

In the meantime, while I was fighting my inner demons, I came across these Spanx leggings. I immediately fell in love because they held everything where it should be and for the short time I was wearing them ... I felt like myself again. Thus they quickly became a staple in my closet and my secret weapon. Now 15 months later they are still a go-to in my wardrobe. 

Baby or not I know you will LOVE them! They feel great on and they don't fall down like other leggings. Think back to the last time you wore a pair of faux leather leggings, you probably remember pulling them up all night. Spanx don't do that! 

I paired my faux legging with a casual black and white striped top and black booties for a fun look that will take you straight from happy hour to a night out with the girls! 

Happy Friday!
