In Anticipation of “Mom Style”
I’m not doing a ton of clothes shopping these days, given my rather large pregnant belly, but when I am shopping I’m trying to think a little smarter about what my wardrobe is going to be like as a mom.
I used to dress up everyday for work (usually jeans and a nice blouse), and almost always wore some kind of wedge or slightly dressy shoe.
Even though I owned my own business and worked privately, I felt professional being slightly dressed up.
So now, as I think about what my days may be like, I anticipate some changes in my wardrobe. I’ll be staying home with my son, but also working on blog. So, I could quite easily get away with wearing my “cozies” on the regular, but I don’t think that’s a really great habit to get into.
Plus, I really enjoy doing my hair, makeup, and picking out my outfit for the day so I think I would feel extra lazy if I completely neglected those things all together.
The biggest change will be with my shoes. There’s no need to wear wedges or any sort of dressy shoe if I’m going to be running errands and doing “casual” things. I’m transitioning down to flats and mini-wedges.
Since I’ll also be carrying around a diaper bag, I’ll grab my essentials and throw them in a little clutch.
Unfortunately the majority of my jeans are too long for flats, since I wore them with wedges, so I may need to get a new pair (not sad about that). And frankly, I have no idea what’s going to happen to this extra junk in my truck, so I may need to buy a new pair to simply pull over my rear. We’ll see.

I’m enjoying a more casual daily outfit choice. It’s nice to be comfortable, but still feel pulled together. I think that will be my goal for this next phase.
But I’m sure there will be days of work out clothes and ponytails too.
