Mom Style

January 18, 2017

I’ve always been a person who likes to dress up which fit well with my life pre-baby. My workwear afforded me the opportunity to exercise my penchant for all things skirts and heels. Since having Ivy, my life looks remarkably different which I am totally okay with. It does mean my dressy clothes aren’t really appropriate on a daily basis. Don’t get me wrong, I still wear them any chance I get and plan to when I go back to work part-time in February. For now, I’m enjoying more casual looks and developing my mom style.

To be honest, I have never been very good at casual. When I have needed to run an errand or take Ivy to the doctor, I kept coming up short. I began a search for some tops that would be casual with unique details. I found several tees that are anything but basic. I’m sharing them below. I have also been loving details like coated jeans, velvet sneakers, and studded boots that don’t sacrifice style while maintaining comfort.

Blog photos have gotten more difficult, and I don’t always get to photograph all my everyday looks anyway. I’ve started snapping an ootd (outfit of the day) picture when possible, and I thought I would start sharing them here. I have to be honest y’all, these ootd photos are hard! You should have seen me making a fool of myself in our driveway. I don’t know how other bloggers make it look so easy. After moving to the back deck for the second one so the neighbors didn’t think I was totally insane, I still couldn’t get the white tank to focus right. Oh well! I’d love to have your feedback about this, so please let me know what you think about this content. It’s not my usual and a little out of my comfort zone.

    I’ve generally been to a greater degree an easygoing individual, so I’m cherishing these looks! I’ve alway trusted that you can in any case be upscale while wearing children neighborly looks.

    First of all, these photos are great, you are being very hard on yourself. Do you use a selfie stick? I need to buy one! Secondly you rock casual outfits, especially in neutrals. Two great jackets.

    I welcome posts like these since they are more me because I only go to work 1 to 3 days a week and work from home the rest. I have been meaning to do OOTD posts like these for about a year and will start doing them every now and then. Thanks for encouraging me.

  • I’ve always been more of a casual person, so I’m loving these looks! I’ve alway believed that you can still be stylish while wearing kids friendly looks.
