Project: BABY

Becoming a real-deal mom in 4 weeks. Still managing to squeeze my swollen feet into strappy wedges...

Be young, have fun, make a baby.

How did your style change (if at all) after becoming a mom?

What's your favorite stylish and practical item?

What's a quick thing moms can do to take their style up a notch?

What is one practical and fashionable item every mom must have? Please include a link to a photo if you have one.

This is tough. Most of these fabulous bloggers have already hit the nail on the head! My top picks? Skinny jeans, brown boots, a printed scarf, classic sunglasses, a nice watch, and a cross-body bag. These should all be a staple in mommy's wardrobe. For me, the most practical item in my closet is a fabulous hat. (actually, I have about 10!) If you're anything like me, it takes a lot of TIME to wash, dry, and style my hair. This is impossible every day with a newborn in the house. A quick fix? Throw on your best hat, some big earrings, and you're out the door. It's always an outfit pick-me-up.
