Taking care of you: wear your mom style proudly
We were in a meeting this week when one of the moms at the table announced, “Was I the only one that left the house without looking in the mirror?” We laughed. And a couple of us smiled and said, “No.”
Taking care of ourselves as parents seems to be the last priority in our days. In fact, good days can sometimes mean just brushing our teeth. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find inspiration in the moms who refuse to let go of their self-expression and fashion.
Below, we’re sharing some mom-style bloggers who know how to balance beauty and babies. Even if you’re currently sitting in pajama pants with spit up and a coffee stained t-shirt, we hope you’ll be inspired to remember to take care of you.
Justina at The Jungalow not only has a great approach to style, but her little babe is adorable too! She believes in loving yourself, just as you are, which we are also big fans of.
A Cup of Jo has it all: honest anecdotes of motherhood, empowering women, travel look books, delicious and wholesome food, and of course, style tips for pampering yourself.
Another mom who believes in creating more beauty in our lives is Baby Making Machine. Jennifer will surely inspire you with her authentic approach to parenting and easy-to-follow DIY kids’ clothes tutorials (like making a toddler dress out of your old sweater!).
We love Merrick’s Art for her approachable style (even for growing bellies!) and DIY tutorials for the crafty moms. On top of that, she has a great series of how to wear one piece of clothing multiple ways, so you can stretch your wardrobe.
The Daybook will make you laugh. Every day. And not only do we admire her style, she shares her beautiful birth story and pics here.
We know another mom who practices pampering herself in some small way every day. That could even mean exfoliating the soles of your feet. Or curling your hair. Or wearing a scarf instead of a necklace that your baby would just yank off anyway. By honoring yourself, you will be teaching your little ones to honor themselves too.
