Moms need Style

As a mom of two young kids I get it and completely understand the struggle of getting dressed everyday and still wanting look like a stylish mom. I went from working full time and attending events during the week, to being a stay-at home mom with a baby. After I had my baby, my personal style changed. Lack of sleep kicked in, and wanting to stay in my comfy pajamas just made sense.

About a month after coming home from the hospital, I made a promise to myself that I wanted to look like the full-time working me. Now I’m not saying I left the house in full make-up and heels. A shower was a priority, so I made sure that was completed before my husband left for work. I never wore a ton of make-up, so I created less than 1 minute make-up routine. Put on some mascara, little blush, lip gloss and I was ready for whatever the day had for me!

but what about my wardrobe?

The wardrobe on the other hand I struggled with because of the change in lifestyle but also the change in my body. The dresses I wore before no longer fit and I just felt lost. When my second arrived, this boy did not sleep for more than 4 hours in a row for 2 years!

the struggle is real!!!

My kids are close in age, so I had a toddler whose life didn’t change because mommy didn’t get much sleep the night before. Life continued and so did my commitment to myself although there were some days where I just couldn’t leave the house or make that effort. I said to myself that’s OK. Just like you, I was out and about with my kids running errands, attending play dates, and activities, so I still wanted to take that extra 5 minutes to get my hair and face ready.  However I was still struggling with my wardrobe.

i want you to ask yourself these questions:

Do you find yourself staring at your closet, while your kids are yelling for you and all you want to do is get dressed?! Do you find yourself shopping online and or at a box store/mall trying to figure out what you are going to wear? And when you do, you actually don’t end up wearing it because it’s not really you? Or you only know how to wear it a certain way?

I figured out that in order to get dressed in the morning quickly I needed a wardrobe plan. I needed to figure out what my style was and what the key pieces I needed to have in my closet in order to create endless outfit options. As moms, we don’t have the luxury of standing around in our closets trying things on. We need to get dressed, but my philosophy is why not add some style to your outfits while you at it! 😉

If you know a new mom, stay-at home mom, working mom…please forward this post onto them. This is what 7 Days of Style is all about!
