It’s so simple, but yet so complex.
We are not the same women that we once were.
We have kids, now.
And maybe some stretch marks.
And maybe a few extra pounds and a few extra curves that we aren’t quite sure what to do with.
And maybe we are a little sad about it.
And guess what? That’s ok!
I can admit that even I am still hanging onto some of my “fat jeans” I had from before I had kids, hoping that one day, they might fit again. However, just because they fit, doesn’t always mean we should wear them. Case in point, maybe you don’t have any extra weight. Maybe you were one of the lucky ones that had all the weight magically fall off when you were breastfeeding (if this is you, I hate you a little bit for it) and all your old pants still fit. But maybe some of those old pants are 5 or 10 years old (I’m not judging – good jeans, especially, can be expensive) and you have a hard time bending over without showing off your butt crack. Maybe that was ok as a single 20 something (or maybe not, but everyone else was doing it too, right?!). It is my firm belief that, as moms, no one wants to (or should) see our butt cracks (when we have pants on – what you do without pants on is your business!).
We also haven’t been out in awhile, or don’t go out often, so we don’t even know where to start when it comes to style. This is where I come in. I’m doing the research and I’m shopping around and I’m here to make it easy to translate trends into something that “even a mom” can wear. I truly believe that it’s not that we don’t want to look put together, it’s mostly that we just don’t know how and taking the time to figure it out seems hard. Let’s do it together. I’d love to help take the chaos that we all know as motherhood and turn it into your personal style!
