Mommy Monday

I’d never call myself a fashionista. Even before having a kid I didn’t dress up too fancy. But, I always tried to look nice; have my hair done and my makeup on (unless I was going to Walmart, of course). When Huff the Hubs and I were dating, I made an effort to look my best (how else was I supposed to catch him?).

 

After I had a kid however, all sense of fashion (and hygiene) went out the window.

 

Look at that girl. I bet she was able to shower everyday, too. I ENVY her.

I used to think that I’d never be one of “those moms”. The ones that wore yoga pants all day, never wore jewelry, and didn’t wear t-shirts without holes. Then, I had a child.

I went from coordinating outfits and accessories to sniffing the armpits of my shirts and inspecting jeans for spit-up stains before deciding what to wear. My cute dresses have been replaced with V-neck tees from Target in every color of the rainbow.

And that's only a quarter of my collection!

There are times that I see young moms with their hair perfect, hopping out of their cars dressed like Kate Middleton and I get a twinge of jealousy. But, most of the time, I don’t mind that I have a drawer of broken necklaces that Huff the Babe has destroyed. I’d rather be in my sweat pants and t-shirt, playing “Where’s Hermione?” than be dressed to the nines.

 

What about you? Has your style changed since you had kids? Does it bother you or are you okay with it?

  1. I see a color of Target v-neck tee in that pile that I do not yet own. *Throws child in car and speeds to Target immediately*
