So there’s been a lack of fashion related slash lookbook (otherwise titled, “The Dressing Room”) posts from my blog. Why?!?
1. I work from home and lazily hangout in my PJs/yoga pants all day with my laptop in my lap. I try to change sometimes, but “changing” means putting on leggings and a tunic. Not much of a departure from the PJs or yoga pants.
2. When I do go out to run errands with Eva in tow, getting dolled up with heels, accessories, and a purse is NOT practical. Pre-baby me would be frowning down upon me right now.
Alas I have worn the same thing over and over again whenever I step out. My momiform (Mommy Uniform), if you may, which isn’t a bad thing. Functional and practical is key, especially with a 9 month old mobile baby. I’m featuring Momiform #1: Leggings, T-Shirt or Tank with an oversized blazer or cardigan and flats. It’s easy to put together when you’re trying to run out of the house with a baby (which always seems to be 30 minutes after I say I’m going to leave the house). I’ve tried to dress up said outfits with jewelry or a scarf but even that is impractical at times, as Eva grabs and plays with it while I’m carrying her around. Any time I’ve worn a scarf or necklace, she starts pulling on it, which has prompted me to stop wearing my beloved necklaces hubs has given me in fear of them breaking. And to top it off, I’ve worn hoop earrings while carrying her (I know some of you are already saying “Oh no!” and flinching right now) and she got a hold of them. Thank goodness we were home and I reached for her hand as soon as I felt her grab them. Seriously, THANK GOODNESS!
So to dress up my Mommy Uniform, my go-to accessories are statement shoes or stacks of bracelets or rings (which Eva thinks are toys, but these accessories are better to wear as she won’t be tugging at my neck or ears). I’m craving a TON of cute flats right now. So many options, I can’t seem to narrow my choices down.
Here are the details of what I wore to the South Bay Bloggers meet up.
