It has been a little over a month since I came clean about my struggle with the New Mom Uniform (see my shame HERE). And fortunately creating that post was just the kick I needed to get back on track! I haven’t worn the uninspired look since, but I have used it as a base in creating more stylish option. In my quest to reimagine the mom uniform, I thought it time I share a bit of my progress—and what better way than with an outfit post?!
Yes- I am wearing the same jersey skirt and my hair is up in a bun—but the look feels new and much more polished with 3 easy changes:
1) I Accessories! The headband makes my hair look less like an after thought and more of a conscious decision. Paired with the oversize clutch, adds detail and visual interest to the look.
2) Heels! Heels can elevate any look. Admittedly they aren’t the most conducive for running after the baby, but for running around town they work just fine. Besides, I don’t tend to wear shoes when playing on the ground anyways…
3) Color! I turned in my drab t-shirt and instead wore a silk turquoise shell. Now I definitely believe there is a place for t-shirts, but this isn’t it. Plus this option works even better in the heat.
