Mommin in style

Being a mom is amazing.  The love, cuddles and kisses you get from those smaller versions of you is awesome but there’s the other stuff that can be challenging.  This is a blog about fashion so I’ll focus on the “mom style” part of the “other stuff”.

I married into motherhood of a 4 year old so I didn’t necessarily prepare for what kind of mom style I would have.  Still, there are three significant moments in my life that defined my mom style.

  1. Growing up knowing I was going to be a fly mom like my mom and granny.
  2. Going to my first school event of my 2nd grade step-daughter and realizing that I actually was a fly mom.
  3. Birthing a child and experiencing the challenges of just looking like I showered everyday.

That 3rd moment...I thought I had mommin together until I had a newborn that turned into a toddler.  I LOVE my baby girl but I had to negotiate even putting on lotion after showering at one point. So I had to get smart with dressing like I cared about life and thus the mom outfit was born.  

A mom outfit it exactly what it sounds like.  A series of looks meant for mommin around town. The more mom outfits I have in rotation the better.  I keep it classic most days with a v-neck tee, my favorite distressed denim and a cardigan. I’ll funky it up with a cute sneaker or a flat and a fun mom-friendly accessory like a scarf.  This way I effortlessly look cute and all the work was done on the front end! Don’t be afraid of a uniform! Wearing the same few timeless pieces often is smart and chic! If it’s good enough for NeNe Leaks, it’s good enough for me.
