Hi Everyone! As you can tell I have been taking a little break from blogging. I have been working on a very special update for DYG (stay tuned) and also needed to spend some quality time with my family. This post is the perfect way for me to re-emerge into the blogging world as its a project that I am super passionate about. I have partnered with Mallory from Style Your Senses and Cristin Cooper from The Southern Style Guide to bring you, Mom Style Mondays.
“Mom Style Monday is a series of curated posts providing style inspiration for moms who want to look and feel their best. Founded by three bloggers turned friends, our passion is motivating moms to find their most stylish and most confident self.”
This post is a perfect example of what my “Mom Style”, on a good day, looks like. For the most part I’m rocking the athleisure trend but when I have the opportunity and time to pull myself together I’m wearing this exact outfit formula that I have broken down for you below. During my time off from posting on the blog I had the opportunity to dive into my analytics and I realized that while you like to see trends you really love to see what I wear on a day to day basis. I’m busy as most moms are and have pretty much come to terms with the fact that I needed to develop a uniform that I can easily pull together on a moment’s notice. This outfit is a perfect example of one my mom uniforms that I wear during cooler temps. Spanx Leggings have become a staple in my wardrobe while I work to get rid of these last ten pounds of baby weight. They have lots of fun options like this faux suede pair but they also suck you in, in a comfortable way. The base of my look is monochromatic in my signature all black and I add one statement piece like this faux fur vest to add interest to my outfit. Of course my finishing touch is my bold red lip, which instantly elevates any look, a tip that I learned from my own mom.
Our hope for MSM is that we can motivate any mom who feels like she has lost her style mojo. Trust us we know it isn’t easy, we have 6 girls between the three of us, Mallory is pregnant with her second, so we know it can be hard! Together we want to create a destination and a community that works to re-inspires moms to take the time for themselves. As I always say, when you look good you feel good, and that confidence is what is most improtant. We invite you our friends and fellows mamas to join us on the first Monday of every month as we take on a new and relevant mom style challenge. Our first one, will be on Monday February 6th and will address how to wear loungewear without looking like you just rolled out of bed. If you are a blogger and interested in linking up and sharing your own spin on chic loungewear email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. You can also follow along on social media by following the hashtag #realmomstyle. So join us and invite your friends as we tackle a new style challenge each month and inspire you to look and feel your best!
