I often get asked a lot if I really wear heels and dress up when I'm with my child. The God honest truth is YES. I remember when I found out that I was pregnant, saying to myself, I will not be one of those mom's who let themselves go and wear leggings and sweat pants all the time.
Not that there is anything wrong with that but it's not what I wanted to look like. That doesn't mean that I don't have days where I do throw on leggings and an over sized top. However, it's important for me not to lose who I am. I think as women we often forget about ourselves and needs when we become mom's. Your whole life is now about your children.
Sometimes, we have to take time for ourselves and not only do things that make us happy but put a little effort into our own appearance. Everyday won't be a dress up kind of day but you don't want to get yourself stuck in a rut to a point of no return. I know that every mom is different and sometimes after having a baby our styles change. If you're a mom of more than one child then maybe instead of sneakers and sweats when you're with your children, opt for a pair of cute flats and well fitted jeans.
When my son was a baby I wore flats all the time but made sure I wore clothes that fit my new baby making body that made me look put together. Now, that he's a toddler, I mix it up. When I take him to school in the mornings, I wear heels, but if we are going to the park after school I whip out my flats in a heartbeat.
Sometimes If I know I'm going to have a busy hectic day, putting on an outfit that makes me feel confident helps me get through the day. I would love to chat more about style and being a mom. I will save that for a later post. Feel free to email me any questions you may have or tips for other plus size moms.
