Definition of “Mom Look”: The look of a mom who is just too tired or in a hurry that she dresses more for comfort rather than for look.
So I have noticed how much my style has changed since before I got pregnant. I use to dress with accessories and always did my hair and makeup. Once I got pregnant, that slowly started to fade. The bigger I got, the less I cared. lol I don’t dress atrocious or anything, I just don’t put too much effort into it. I am just now getting back into dressing a little better.
When I brought my daughter home, yoga pants and tank tops were my best friends. That’s pretty much all I wore. I know I didn’t put jeans on for like the first 2 months of her life. Just seemed like too much effort, especially knowing that I was probably going to get puked on anyways. lol
I didn’t sleep much (2 to 3 hours a night, maybe) when she was a newborn. I mean who really does? I was past the point of just “too tired” to wear “real” clothes so, I didn’t.
But, I am now giving my Mom Look more effort. Sorta…I don’t wear yoga pants anymore. That’s a step in the right direction right? I still pretty much wear tank tops all the time but I think it’s appropriate to use the excuse, “It’s summer time”.
I made a change to make my mom look easily achievable. I recently chopped the majority of my long hair off. My hair was just so thick and hard to take care of with a newborn because of the fact that it was so thick. I was hesitant about doing it because I had been growing it for 4 years but it was definitely the right thing to do.
4 Months ago, my mom look consisted of, Yoga pants and tank tops everyday, slippers, thick messy bun and a tired looking face.
Today, my mom look consists of Jean shorts and tank tops, sandals, shoulder length A-Line haircut and a very well hidden tired looking face.
Even though I don’t dress like I use to over a year ago, I feel better. You can definitely dress for comfort and still look good.
