prenatal –> postnatal

Jenny Greenstein

If ya’ll followed along when I was pregnant, you would have found me frequently discussing prenatal shopping strategies and how to make cost-effective investments. One of my key tips is/was buying dresses that flex with a changing shape and fit during pregnancy and beyond. Here I am putting my own advice into practice, wearing a style I wore beginning at 6 months pregnant (shown here and in the video attached here!), and now wearing it styled as a skirt 6 months postpartum. I wore a ton of non-maternity clothes during my pregnancy, but I kept in mind styles that would go the distance. Getting creative with your wardrobe is critical and creating a capsule collection to get you through this journey (which goes well past birth) is the ultimate goal. This involves careful curation and setting yourself up for success. While I realize from personal experience and from working with my prenatal clients that much of your closet won’t fit for some time (like your jeans), there are many that will. If you are looking for some support in making this all happen, check out my prenatal package, and reach out at jenny@yoursoulstyle.com so I can help you get there.

I don’t know about you mamas, but since having Vida, it can be a challenge finding time to cook a decent meal. While Dina has remained on the ball, for me it hasn’t been as easy. My multitasking skills continue to improve, but calling in a company like KitchenSurfing which gave us the night off was basically a dream come true.

Last week, a personal chef  (Josh) showed up at our apartment, food and cooking gear in hand. All we had to do was point him in the right direction, and he took over from there. Like dining at the chefs table, it was very cool to see what could be accomplished in our small NYC kitchen. It kind of felt like we were on an episode of Top Chef. Within 30 minutes we were not only eating a most delicious healthy meal, but the clean-up was done too. I can’t say enough about how epic it was to be able to focus on Vida during those valuable after-work hours, all the while getting to eat a home cooked meal. As new parents, we reserved the 6:00pm slot, and by 6:30 we were done eating, leaving us time to hang with the babe before the nighttime routine commenced! And the real kicker is that once she was asleep, there were no dishes waiting for us in the sink so we could hit the couch and spend time with each other. Heaven, really.

If you’re interested in signing up for KitchenSurfing, and having a professional chef come to your house/apt (and I highly reccomend you do), they are offering Your Soul Style readers the first meal free when using the code YOURSOULSTYLE. Life is super busy, we are all running a mile a minute and self-care is important. So take good care, and sign up!

Since the Loyal Hana x Your Soul Style trunk show was such a huge success, we’ve decided to do it all over again on February 4th from 4pm – 7pm, this time including Lexie boutique and baby brand Tane (Vida wore their organic kimono onesie home from the hospital – the best!). While the event will definitely be mama-friendly, Lexie curates gorgeous RTW pieces from brands like LNA, MIH and Nanushka for whether you’re having a babe, recently had a babe or just ARE a babe. And Loyal Hana makes the hippest maternity/nursing friendly clothing around. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so let love lead you right into Lexie’s doors and come meet us for drinks, shopping and 15% off all brands and services from me. Can’t wait to see you there! Details on the above invite.

–> 2016

Hello there, and happy new year! I hope you had a fantastic end of year, and re-entry into 2016 is filled with tons of possibilities. I’m feeling super excited with many new initiatives on the agenda. The past 6 months (actually, the past year!) has been a complete whirlwind, but I’m slowly coming back to life and establishing my new normal. I’m not there yet, but each day I inch closer. I’ve come to understand (and accept) the challenges with finding balance as a mama, and while I fully believe it’s achievable, there will always be desire for more time with Vida, work, friends and family, Dina and of course me. That said, I will take each day as it come, and continue dedicating myself to ensure each of these areas are nurtured.

To kick off this year, I want to introduce a new consulting service. While this doesn’t pertain to clients on a personal level, it is useful for individuals launching their own enterprises and could use support in the creative area. It takes a village, this much I know and I’m here to help! Launching a brand in this competitive marketplace is challenging, and requires many different skills for an effective and cohesive creative presentation. With over 15+ years of industry experience, I can help bring your vision to life by offering the following services:

  • Styling (on-figure & flat-lay)
  • Photoshoot Concepting
  • Brand Building
  • Editorial Layouts
  • Custom Content Creation
  • Writing/Blog Posting
  • Visual Merchandising
  • Social Media Initiatives
  • Website/Blog Photography
  • Website/Blog Design

Contact me at jenny@yoursoulstyle.com to discuss details.

I can’t wait to work with you in the coming year!

This year goes down as the best ever. Coming into motherhood has been the greatest gift, and along with completely changing my personal life, it has influenced my professional life in ways I never knew possible. I’m super honored to have been chosen by Oh Mama as their “Mama Crush” this week, where I share how this new role has influenced my career, how I’d spend the day if there were zero obligations, and what parenting decision thus far I wish I could change. “Oh Mama is the site that puts everything in one place…a place for moms by moms that delivers information and inspiration for daily living and thriving. A site where moms can finally worry less about where to get their information and grant them more time to remember that these are the days.”
