OOTD: White (& Blue) Stripes

Now that's it's been 5 months since I had Gigi I am totally losing my hair! It's really freaking me out that I'm going to go bald. Aackkk!! I seriously lose hair by the handfuls. I've done my research and know that's it's completely normal to experience this after having a baby but it is still scary. At least I have bangs to cover up the re-growth of new hair so you can't see the baby hairs coming in at my hairline. And I feel much more normal knowing that Katie Holmes went through the same thing as me (but at least I'm not getting married now!) If you look closely, you can see her baby hairs along her hairline.

So anyways, here is what I'm wearing today. I'm taking Gigi to the park today so I had to keep it comfortable with flats and a tee.

What I'm wearing...
H&M striped shirt, similar here
Joe's Raw Hem Kicker
B. Makowsky Gaby Sandals
Anthropologie necklace, similar here on sale
Anthropologie Bow Earrings, similar here

Well you know I lost all mine and had micro-bangs for awhile!!! I cannot believe how bad Katie's is in her wedding pictures. I would have someone photoshop that out!

Aww I'm sorry you're going through that, but it will be ok! You look fabulous though and I love your outfit today. That tee is great!

Wow! Since I started following so recently, I didn't realize that Gigi is only five months old. You look amazing!

A lot of my friends went through the same thing after their babies, I hope yours will stop coming out, quickly! And your shoes/necklace look so pretty and really dress up the outfit - have fun at the park with your cutie!

I'm sure your hair will soon stop falling out!
Your outfit is really simple and trendy, I like it!

Leah said...

I would be freaking out too - normal or not! At least you do have the new growth and not just thin hair now!!!!

Aww hon, I went through the same thing after I had my son. It will pass. Take some biotin if you are worried. I remember agonizing over it. Hugs!

Just look at it as practice for when Gigi is a teenager and you start pulling your hair out yourself!

Your park look is adorable, hope it was fun!

My goodness, you look amazing and are in a great shape! It took me longer than 5 months to lose baby fat and I am still dealing with excess fat in one area sigh..

I know how frustrated it gets when losing hair but it will slow down and stop.

Jenni said...

Oh my gosh, I feel your pain, girl! I grew new "bangs" and lost hair after each delivery....so annoying! I would shed for months! You are looking fab as ever though...love this cute top on you! Hope you had a great day at the park!

Lorraine said...

*Adorable.* You look fantastic! And sorry to hear about the hair, but if it makes you feel better, it still looks shiny and beautiful to me! I've had serious hair envy reading your blog these last few months :)

This is such a cute cute look and you look wonderful and vibrant! I'm sorry to hear about your hair loss and have read about it as well, but I know it's a whole other thing having to deal with it and notice it with your own hair. You always look great though and we always pay more attention to our own flaws than others notice. I hope you had a great day with your little ladybug!

You look adorable. Perfect for the playground! Although here in Florida, it's way too hot for me to wear any kind of jean if I'm going to be outside.

I have a shirt very similar to that but I think you look a lot better in yours! :)
