My Fashion Rut

In the past 15 months, my fashion life has gone through a bunch of changes.  I went from corporate lady to pregnant lady to new stay at home mom and my fashion has taken a nose dive.  I used to wear beautiful DVF dresses, JCrew suits and cashmere sweaters.

Now I wear workout pants, spit-up stained tshirts and worn out leggings.

Needless to say, this isn’t making me feel good about myself.   My weight is back to pre-Lucas days but my middle is nowhere near the shape it was in before I had him.  This is making my pants fit so horribly.

I have my husband’s holiday work dinner next week as well as a couple of Christmas parties and I think it’s time for a new outfit.  It may also be time for a hair appointment and a new coat of polish on my nails.

I also think it’s time to splurge on a new dress at one of my favorite stores…Anthropologie!

I like this one…

Shiya Embroidered Dress

and this one.


How do you get out of a fashion rut?  Any other moms out there with some advice for making me feel better about this new “mom” body? ughh :(

    I hear you–I keep saying I need what not to wear for moms who have too much workout gear in their closet! My mr man is almost 1 and I have no idea what’s “in”….other than my Paige denim which I was just told about!!

    Don’t be so hard on yourself. What you see in the mirror is different from others see.Maybe you are just in need of an update.It’s easy to get stuck in a rut ,and it’s a wonder how a little makeup and clothes that are not sweats will make you feel.I just wouldn’t order anything online and consider trying things that you never would have before.

  3. If it makes you feel any better, I went to work with a bloody footprint on my skirt yesterday. (Miles stepped on something in the basement, Mother of the year here didn’t notice until we were putting shoes and socks on.) As far as wardrobe goes, I stay pretty basic (and look like a complete bum on the weekend) but I try to keep things fresh with scarves, baby-friendly jewelry and belts. I love, love, love belts. I think leggings and a cotton tunic look instantly chic with a skirt and boots.
