Easy Mom Style On A Budget!
Having children does not mean having to give up your sense of style. Many moms find it hard to balance both. Between getting the kids ready and taking care of the home, it is becomes difficult to find time for yourself.
The solution is simple. Start small. Take one day this week or next and remember the style you once had and the types of clothing you loved.
Were you rocker chic or more bohemian? Pick up some fashion magazines or scour the web for inspiration. I love going to Any Wear Girl for tips and ideas. It is a great resource for what to wear anywhere based on your location.
Now, think of your current body type and new assets! As women, our bodies change constantly especially after a baby, so you always want the right fit. Get rid of any ripped, stained, or tight clothing. This way you are eliminating the chaos in your closet.
You should always love every item in your closet. Start out with getting some basic staples like tanks in black or white and a great fitting pair of jeans. Black leggings are great for Moms and can be paired with a chunky sweater. Keep it simple, clean and don’t forget to accessorize as it’s a great way to add pops of color!
Try some bargain stores like TJ Maxx or H & M where you can find quality clothing for less. Don’t forget sites like Ebay, Shop It to Me, and Ideeli that send emails on discount sales tailored to brands you desire. Invest in the things you adore and will wear. If you have wanted that leather jacket, go for it but wear it with your great priced jeans! Style does not mean stress. Organize, grab a few fall staples, and you are on your way!
