I live in small town Texas. I work at a motor bank, and am soon to be a stepmom to my significant others 3 children. I do a lot of casual #mommywear. So I wanted to show more of that on the blog, because fashion is for living in, not just taking pictures of. (That’s what’s so great about it.)
So today I pulled out a couple of my favorite basics to give you some stylish #mommywear options if your stuck in a rut. I chose these high waisted Levi’s jeans for a more unexpected base. The higher waistline will help cinch in any mommy tummy, and also put the smallest part of your silhouette closer to your true waist for the most figure flattering look. The ever versatile white tee is the perfect co-conspirator. I always get mine from Forever21.
Look one: Laid Back
Scarves are an easy go-to accessory for transforming a look. Mine is vintage, but I found some similar ones at American Apparel, Shoptiques, and Modcloth. These cute minimalist sandals and matching gold bangle make this look classic and suitable for the park, errands, or any other daytime tasks.
You’d be surprised what a little something sparkly can do for your outfit, and your mood! This necklace is sold out on Baublebar, but check them out for other great options. Funky cat-eye sunnies amp the glam factor along with the obvious practical use.
Look 3: Artsy
For this last look I went to my trusty keds, and matched the leather trim to this cool fedora I picked up on vacation a few years ago. Here are some similar ones at Gap, Zappos, and Charming Charlie. I love the mix of pattern and texture here. Then I added this beaded necklace for some extra color. This necklace caught my eye because the non- painted beads and ribbon tie make it safe for little people to yank, or suck, or chew! (You could even DIY a necklace like this!)
So there you have it! I hope this little post gave you some inspiration on how to mix things up during the daily grind of motherhood. Sometimes it’s hard if you feel like yoga pants and spit-up on old tees are your only options. It quickly deprives you of your femininity and spirit, but don’t fall for that trap! There’s no reason why practical clothes have to be dull or void of personality. Your children are true joy, go and enjoy them! And do all things with love. 1Corinthians 16:14
Taylor, with love
