To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.

This summer I ended one of the most exciting journeys in my life, and at the same time started the most important one: I went from being pregnant to becoming a mom.
In between these journeys there is a postpartum period that (in my opinion) too few people talk about. I don’t know why, but female bodies are the strongest and most beautiful things we have in this world I think we talk much too little about the time after giving birth. I would like to start by saying that of course each and every pregnancy is very individual but at least I feel like both myself and my postpartum belly, aren’t given enough love.
I am not gonna elaborate because I don’t really know how to, but I just wanted to throw this out in the open, because maybe someone feel what I feel. But I do know that I want to give my body an homage for everything it has given me in life! So, I present to you, some belly love and my favorite pieces that I wore two weeks after giving birth.
I went through my wardrobe only to realize that postpartum and my pre-pregnancy closet wasn’t a good combination. I used to love to wear all-tight outfits, but it does not feel as comfortable anymore. Might not be surprising, but everything is a first for me right now. Instead, I turned back to my maternity training tights. But I quickly realize that I am very done with them. They just weren’t fun to wear anymore. Has anybody experienced the same? I started exploring pieces that could be both comfy and cool (and not to forget practical). My first choice? Loose trousers with a matching shirt. It was definitely the answer to all my questions at the time.

However, I also noticed how amazingly comfortable and practical a trouser-free outfit could be.
Dress from Stine Goya.
This dress has the perfect pink color, the cutest pattern and give the postpartum belly the perfect amount of love. I have so many details going on with this look. I can’t see how you don’t want to embrace your body in this state. I love it.
Dress from Ganni.
The back. The arms. The belly.
Just because I could, I decided to wear these perfect heels. I can’t even explain how much I’ve been longing for this view! I missed my feet so much. Had to snap a photo.
Full look from Samsoe Samsoe.
This dress brings out the best of me.
And my beautiful belly.
