Motherhood is exhausting! Kids, pets, play dates, school, clean the house, pick ups, drop offs, pay this, cook that. There is just so much to do and there does not seem to be enough hours in the day to do them. No wonder why we always seem so worn down. One thing that seems to get forgotten is our sense of fashion. I know what you’re thinking. “Fashion?! Ain’t nobody got time for that!” Well, Mama, fortunately fashion doesn’t always have to take a ton of time and effort. Moms can be fashionistas too, and here are 5 easy ways how.
Since we are always on the go, jackets become a part of the Mommy uniform. We suggest you spend some time (and maybe a little money) when you pick out your next jacket. Why? Because jackets are amazing. They are great because all you have to do is grab it on your way out of the door. And not only do they keep you warm, but they are always there to cover the coffee stain or freshly planted toddler hand print on your t-shirt. Oh, jacket, we love you too!
2. Bathing Suit
Summertime means spending a lot of time poolside. Kids always want to be in the water, and it’s a good way to wear them out. Picking out a great swimsuit means you can look great all season long. You can pair them with a skirt, tunic, or wraparound for different looks. This year, 50′s vintage is in style when it comes to swimwear, so take a look at the one pieces with the bottoms that look like skirts or shorts.
Sometimes, all a girl needs is a good pair of shoes. They always fit when we’re bloated or gain a few pounds, and they always look great. The main thing you want to remember when you buy a pair of shoes is to make sure they’re comfortable. Put them on and walk around in them just to make sure. You might also want to buy a neutral color if you are super busy. Hey, maybe you could get a pair that matches your new jacket!
Jeans are yet another steeple in our wardrobe. If they are not, they should be. Jeans are comfortable and go with nearly everything from t-shirts to hooded sweatshirts to sweaters. Let’s face it Mamas, they look way better on us than our pajama pants and the sweatpants that we tell ourselves it is okay to wear out in public. A great thing about jeans is that they come in a variety of colors. Of course, it is a good idea to have a couple of pairs of our favorite blue denim, but go on and try on a pair of turquoise or pink jeans just for fun! If you like them, add them to your closet!
That’s right, Mama. One of the best ways to feel good about yourself is to make yourself feel sexy. Lingerie is a surefire way to do that. There are a couple of ways to go about it. The first way is to go out and get yourself fitted for a new bra. You would be amazed how many women are wearing the wrong size. Get the bra and a new pair of panties and wear them under your clothes, knowing how hot you are beneath the Mommywear will give you some confidence. Or you can go ahead and buy something really sexy for you and your partner after the kids are in bed. Hey, Mama’s got to have a life too!
There you have it, ladies. Five simple ways to get your fashionista on!
