I realize wet hair is not a “look,” but it’s a daily reality when you’re a mom running through the day on a hectic schedule. Sadly, I don’t have access to a hair and makeup team daily like a Kardashian or Kate Middleton. I’m a real mom who really takes care of her son and works a full time job. I lost all the weight I gained during my pregnancy but some of the clothes I wore before I got pregnant fit me again but just don’t look right anymore. My aunt Maryann lost a bunch of weight and gave me a stockpile of awesome jeans from I.N.C. Lauren by Ralph Lauren and Jones New York. I was thankful for the donations.
In the above pic, I’m sporting a Lilly Pulitzer for Target Coral Tunic, a Kate Spade Morrocan Marketplace crossbody bag I purchased at the Kate Spade Outlet at Sawgrass Mills Mall and jeans by I.N.C. My sunglasses are by Tory Burch. I don’t wear earrings or necklaces much anymore because my son likes to yank them out. I’m proud to be a real mom, who still loves fashion and has a perfectly imperfect body.
Living in South Florida, we definitely have some wardrobe challenges due to the constantly humid and sticky climate. I don’t feel comfortable in shorts or anything above the knee so I opt for jeans, linen pants or maxi dresses or skirts most of the time. I think dressing for your body is so important and comfort is key. Lately I’ve been loving bright, bold colors such as orange.
