Serena shared a new video on Instagram documenting her struggles with figuring out postpartum fashion and her changing body.

"I got this cool Valentino skirt when I was pregnant and I was like, 'I'm going to be able to fit this when I don't have a belly'," she explained. "I can't fit it. But this is my goal and honestly, I should have been able to fit it by now…but I got distracted for about a month and so I'm about a month behind."
