After I put him to bed around 8:00, I have an hour to clean the kitchen, wash his bottles, get myself ready for bed and prep everything for the next day. I sometimes get a few minutes to do a little blogging or check my blog social media accounts, but that’s about it. I have to make sure that I’m asleep no later than 9:00, because I know that I’ll be up with the baby before midnight. I’m usually up at least 3 times during the night with my little guy. (He is not the greatest sleeper.) The next morning I drag my tired self out of bed to do it all over again. This is why I live for the weekends, but even then, Saturday and Sunday are my catch up days. I knew having a baby would completely change my life forever, but living it every day can be overwhelming at times. Please don’t get me wrong though, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I love every moment I get with my baby boy. Every smile reminds me just how much I love that little human. I love being a mom and I would never want to trade it in for my old life before my baby was born.
I have definitely been slacking with my outfit post lately. My reason for this is my 3-month-old baby, of course. He takes up all of that free time that I used to have to blog. Lately, my days are packed and I never feel like I’m getting ahead on anything. Monday through Friday I go to work. My preschool class goes from 8-2, then at 2:00, I try to manage my time appropriately to finish all my paperwork during my planning time, so that at 3:30, I’m on my way home to see my baby boy. Once I’m home there’s dinner to make, laundry to fold, a baby to change, feed and keep happy.
So with all that said, you can understand that my life is busier than ever. However, I refuse to loose my sense of style. Having on a cute outfit can always brighten my day. What I’ve been trying to come up with is easy to put together outfits that are comfortable and cute. I like to call it “mom wear”.
Here are some of my mom’s looks from this week.
Sunday, I wore this hand-me-down dress that my mom gave me a while back. I love a black dress. It’s easy to accessorize and looks good on everyone.
My Monday outfit is pretty much my standard look for the workweek. Leggings, tank top and a cardigan with flats are always my go-to outfit because it’s comfortable and looks cute. Since I work with kids, I figured my work outfits are good looks for stay at home moms too.
Tank Top- H&M
Leggings- Forever 21
On Tuesday, I wore my grey tunic with a white cardigan. The cardigan is an Express cardigan that I bought at the Salvation Army for $3. I love finding simple staple clothes at thrift stores for cheap, especially when it comes to my work clothes.
Tunic- Nordstrom Rack
Sweater- Salvation Army
Leggings- Forever 21
On Thursday, I wore this look that I wore a few times in the fall while I was pregnant. (Pregnancy look here). It’s an easy look that doesn’t require a lot of thought.
Shirt- Old Navy
Jeggings- Old Navy
On Friday, I really wanted to wear a dress, so I wore my new swing dress (read about it here) with a cardigan. I love how comfortable this dress is in the heat. It’s a perfect summer mom outfit.
Cardigan- Old Navy
Look for more mom wear post soon! I’m all about trying to stay stylish while being a mom. Plus with the lack of time on my hands, I don’t have time to get to the store and buy new clothes, so I’m trying to reinvent some new looks with the older clothes that I already have in my closet for now. I can’t wait to share more soon!
