When I first transitioned from pre-baby life in the corporate world to my new life as a freelancer and mom, I had a little bit of a style identity crisis. My body had gone through so many changes and sizes, I didn’t have use for all the corporate dress clothes that I wore before baby, and the only clothes I had purchased for the cooler weather were last year’s maternity items. I was more than a little lost!
Over the last number of months I’ve gradually found my groove and discovered what I think is the perfect mommy uniform. It’s easy, effortless and, most importantly, comfortable. After becoming a mom I realized that my clothes can’t just be cute, they also need to be 100% functional.
PS: If you’re a mom, I can’t recommend Madewell’s jeans enough. I know I’ve said it before, but their high-riser skinny jeans are a mom’s best friend. The fit is SO flattering and really gives you enough coverage to be as active as you need to be as a mom. They are certainly an investment, but with the number of times I’ve worn them in the last six months it’s an investment that is worth it!
