Monday Mingle: One of My Favorite Spring Dresses

I’ve made it no secret that I’ve struggled with my post baby weight loss. Thanks to a wonderful doctor who has helped me get my thyroid condition under control and some hard work, I’m on my way to being comfortable in my own skin again. That doesn’t mean I’m where I want to be, but it means I’m actually seeing some results, which thanks to that slow thyroid of mine, wasn’t possible before.

Now let’s talk about spring dresses…How’s that for a weird segue? It will make sense in a moment, I promise!

When I was in my darkest days with this thing, one dress helped draw me out of my self pity fest whenever I put it on…a simple coral sheath. For some reason, it made me feel great…and those of you who have struggled with body image know just how uplifting it can be when you find something that makes you feel good. Beauty definitely comes from within, but being healthy and in shape has always been important to me, so finding that space again has been amazing. I just want to say thank you to that sweet little sheath and, most importantly, my family and friends for helping me work through this!

How can you be anything but happy when you’re wearing coral? It’s such cheerful shade no? What’s a color that you’re looking forward to wearing this spring?

    What a pretty dress! I totally know what you mean about that one item of clothing that always makes you feel better about yourself. When I have, what I call, an ugly day, there are a couple of items in my closet that I always turn to for comfort. You look fabulous! Love the different accessories you’ve paired with that dress.

    Isn’t it amazing how pieces of clothing can just alter our mentalities and really uplift us? This really is a stunning dress and I love how soft and springtime perfect it is. You look gorgeous!

    COuld you be ANY MORE gorgeous in Coral? Totally your color and I get why it makes you feel GREAT! Love that pic of you and the kiddies.

    Cute dress and I can definitely relate, after my 3rd my thyroid went crazy and I developed Graves Disease (hyperthyroid condition). That year until I got it under control was really rough not the mention the surgery to completely remove my thyroid. I still have times I don’t feel like myself and some things have completely changed. I am so glad to hear you are doing better, family support is so important!

    My pleasure linking up on this sunny Monday. <3 Ada.

    Seeing all the pretty spring colored clothes and jewelry makes me think spring might actually come! Working on that baby weight too, I know I’ll get there, it’s harder after my second though :/

    I love turquoise and the bead strand reminds me of what my grandmother wore when I was a child! I would love to win them!

    You are looking great, all the hard work is paying off. This dress is so pretty on you. Stay positive and know you are beautiful inside and out.

    Coral always makes me smile, too. It’s such a fun, happy color! And you look beautiful in your dress! It’s so flattering and pretty.

    Kristin! I haven’t read your blog in such a long time! I didn’t realize you had a hormonal condition….my life has been consumed with endocrinology! I am a red herring with Cushing’s Disease and might need neurosurgery. You look beautiful though and still look very young. I struggled for years trying to figure out what in the world was going on–I wrote about it in a blog, but it’s SUPER BORING!!! I’m looking forward to getting all my weight off. 🙂

    I need you ladies to dress me, I swear. My fashion extends to being able to tell you which brand of yoga gear is the best and that’s it.

    That is a gorgeous dress, I can see how it would make you feel great every time you put it on – and I’m glad to hear you are finally feeling good about your body again.
