Lately I’ve been focusing on not giving in to the “letting yourself go as a mom” syndrome. Just because you are a stay or work at home mom it doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to look and feel beautiful!
I’ll be the first to admit that as a mom comfort is at the top of my list when it comes to clothes–fashion be hanged. I need something even on Sundays that will transition from church in the morning, to an informal BBQ in the afternoon, and then snuggling up to bedtime stories and Netflix late at night.
Although finding pieces that are comfortable, functional, *and* look amazing is tricky–it is not impossible! Here are some things to keep in mind to help you find a style that will help you look beautiful and be comfortable as a mom all at the same time!
Look for fabrics that are soft and “flowy”
The look is very “in” right now and super comfy-use the mindset of clothes for caribbean to guide you–they always seem to be effortlessly comfortable and fabulous all at the same time!
Don’t discount dresses and skirts as comfy options
Although many more formal “church clothes” are the kind that you can’t wait to unzip out of the minute you get home I can promise you that you can find a spring dress or a summer dress that is both beautiful and something you’d want to wear all day long-because it’s more comfortable than jeans!
Shopping Online for clothes *is* possible
I adore shopping online–it makes my life immensely easier especially living in Boston where traffic is c R a Z y! Shopping for clothes makes things tricky-but the beautiful thing about dresses is that if you already know the right styles for your body type (I’ll write another post solely on this topic soon) you can easily find and purchase amazing dresses online and have them delivered right to your door! The dress I’m pictured in is the Breezy Flower Vintage V-Neck Dress from Fresh Produce and it is now one of my very favorite pieces!
