Spring Style Tips for Moms
As a Mom myself, I can understand “comfort, functionality and practicality” totally beats being experimental and risky with your style. Trying out something new can end up being a total disaster and you really don’t wanna go that path. At least, I don’t. I will say though, it’s extra challenging when you’re a new mom, for me now, as she’s almost 3 it’s a little easier, but harder in other ways.Confusing I know, but anyhow, I wasn’t planing on doing this post since I have shared few tips in the past, but I was continuously getting the messages “How I manage to look pulled-together all the time”. Quite honestly I’ve my mom uniform and I’ve figured out few tricks to make it look more polished than it actually is.
- Athleisure Wear Pit: A lot of women tend to fall in the athleisure wear pit once they become mothers, and not the “on-trend/cute” kind.
- Unorganized mind and space: You can’t pull yourself together in 5-10 mins if your space and mind is not organized.
- Unrealistic Goals: Be mindful of what you can and can’t achieve in given time.
- Last minute hustle: Pulling out pieces last minute and praying for miracle is not gonna help.
- Overthinking: At the end of the day, it’s not that big of a deal.
I’ve quite a few new mommies in my circle and whenever any of them tells me that they don’t feel very confident anymore or they’re not able to figure out their new style it kinda breaks my heart because as much as you feel blessed and joyous to have found your new-self, you miss your old-self and IT’S OKAY to feel that way.
- Take it slow: It’s not “now or never” kind of situation. Baby steps. You’re not gonna figure out everything immediately.
- Don’t Give up: This is literally the biggest tips I can ever give you. Don’t give up on yourself. Move forward with the turtle’s speed but keep moving.
- Know that you’re doing your best: Tell yourself that you’re doing your best you can to adjust according to your new lifestyle.
- Appreciate little achievements: If you see some improvement, appreciate yourself and encourage yourself for better.
- Be happy: Trust me, it will reflect in your appearance.
PERSONAL STYLE TIPS
- I personally love skinny jeans and turtle necks. Quickest and Simplest way to achieve the Chicest look.
- Flats, don’t even bother thinking about heels. Slip-ons, moccasins, pointed toes, anything goes and looks uber fab.
- Minimal jewelry, rarely do I ever wear any jewelry. but a pair of tiny ear-studs or a dainty piece of jewelry totally spruces up your look.
- Buy easy iron clothes to save you time or invest in a mini-steamer.
- A nude-manicure makes you look polished and is wayyy more forgiving than a bright/dark/neon manicure.
- Messy braids, tops knots and high-ponytails are a mom’s best friends.
- Dry shampoo is a powerful weapon in your style arsenal, use it.
- A bomb pair of sunglasses not only hides your tired eyes but adds a statement to your look.
- Nothing fakes “polished” like a Trench Coat. Especially a Nude Trench Coat.
- Pink lips are great, but a pop of color/bold lips paired with a bomb pair of sunglasses takes it to another level.
- Master the 5minutes mommy makeup and even if you don’t feel like putting on some makeup, force yourself. You’ll feel the difference.
- Don’t be a cranky pants. Be happy, everything looks and feels 10x better when you’re happy.
- Invest in a pair of “cool” sneakers. Skinny jeans, a slouchy shirt, sneakers and sunglasses, say what ! you look FAB !
- Always have an “emergency outfit”, because not everything is planned.
- Keep your favorite hand-cream and perfume in your handbag and use it whenever you get time. For me, it’s usually, well always, in the car, once she’s in her car seat.
