WhatIWore: Here’s a look at my uniform of late - the updated mom on duty outfit. Sneakers, a track jacket, leggings or joggers and tee are my go-to pieces at least three or four days a week. I feel pulled together and appropriate for the playground and grocery alike. I have ambitions of returning to my pre-baby style (or pre-Bea style) when I can but I really do have to keep reminding myself to be a little more forgiving. On so many things. Maybe you’ve been there with your own children or maybe you’re yet to experience the adjustment. Sometimes I feel really defensive going into writing these posts, like I have to prove myself to someone or explain why clothes aren’t that important to me right now. Or why I’m not keeping the same pace as other bloggers or even the same pace as I did with having my first baby. I’m not asking for a pity party or anything, I’m just figuring it all out and Adam keeps reminding me that the people that enjoy this blog will be around when I do!
When: April 3, 2017
Ok! Enough about feeeeeeeeliiinnnngs and onto a couple of notes about the pieces I have on. When I was a kid I was so envious of the other kids who got real adidas. I had the two striped knock off version and thought that one day I’d have my own pair. I really tried to get on board with the white Superstars (they look so cute on other girls!), but they made my feet look so huge and I doubted white sneakers would make it long staying white. So I ordered these and went down a half size and I love ‘em! No breaking in, totally comfortable, A+ sneaks.
My nursing mamas have asked about what kind of tops I gravitate towards and a deep V neck is one of them. I’ve actually been more of a pull-up-my-shirt nurser this time around, but when I have the baby wrap on, it’s easier to go through the V. This one is old and from American Apparel (it’s uni-sex).
Lastly - all moms will feel me on having a jacket with easy to access pockets. I’ve usually got a couple pacifiers and a chapstick in each one!
