Mommy Fashion

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

Just wondering am I the only momma who felt I had to do a closet overhaul when I had my child? I said goodbye to the miniskirts and graphic tees. Also gone, tight clothing, anything with writing on the butt, my teeny bikinis, and my short shorts just to name a few (no judgment on anyone who likes to flaunt what they got).... I don't want to embarrass my child by the way I dress. I try to dress appropriately for my age(26) and I want to be taken seriously as a mother and wife so I've toned down my look. I love fashion and I like to dress fashionably but I find myself labeling many things off limits for me. It's hard to walk that line of "I'm a momma, and I've still got a fashion flare" and "frumpy mommy". Who's with me? Or against me? I'm open to all sides here.

Wear what you like. Kids learn by example, and hopefully they'll learn to be themselves and to be comfortable in their own skin by watching you. :)

I have the opposite problem. I had kids and people now say I dress like I'm old. I'm only 27. So now I'm trying to make my wardrobe a bit less "mature" lol. I'm in the "frumpy mommy" category and I'd really like to escape!

I never dressed very provactive before I had my son but I did dress fairly gothic (dog collar, black lipstick etc). I did tone that part down a bit. I didn't really overhaul my closet but added a few more conservative pieces and started dressing more for the occasion. A little more conservative when I'm out with my son, a little more funky when I get adult time out.

Im definitely with you! I had so much trouble this morning....and I weighed less after I had my daughter but everything falls differently now. I wish I could be one of those moms where I look better now, but I have to start dressing older now. Hollister and express are no longer an option for pants...I m not a stick, I have curves. Which is fine, but its hard when I shop.

My summer wardrobe consists of dresses, gladiator sandals, and pretty blouses. There is one brand of shorts that are the absolute perfect length for me and I love those, too. My winter uniform is flat boots, skinny jeans and a sweater or thick tights, boots and a sweater dress. Also leggings, oversized tees, tunics, I live in them. I agree about the being more wary of what I wear to what function - learned that lesson the hard way, lol. I do like to be more comfortable and will opt for flats much more often than heels, which I also notice my heel height preference shrinking.

I have a better body after my 2 kids than I did before I fell pregnant so I do wear fitted tops and short shorts in the summer. I have dresses that are above the knee, but I also love maxi dresses too.
You will usually find me dressed casually in shorts and t shirt, leggings and a long top or jeans and a jumper over winter.
My binkinis are slighty bigger than they were before.

My style genrally hasn't changed too much but I am more weary of what I am wearing to do certain things. I would never wear a dress or skirt to the park, rescuing a 3 yr old from the top of a climbing frame in a dress isn't a good look, no matter what your age

I wear what I like, being a mom won't ever change that. I wear 'tight' clothes often (well fitting is how I'd describe them), short shorts, and graphic tees. I never did like mini skirts and my bikini isn't exactly 'teeny'.lol I never did like showing my in the way of cleavage. I did however stop showing so much mid drift after I got pregnant. I've had my fashion sense summed up quite simply by a friend: in the summer I'm a hippie, in the winter I'm goth. My makeup is always dark and my hair is black and blue (or purple, oe red, or whatever the store has) I don't really dress much differently, I've never seen the need to. My daughter always tells me that I look like a queen, so I'm guessing that she isn't too embarrased about my appearance.lol I dress how I'm comfortable, that's what everyone should do. Not everyone is comfortable dressing the way they did pre-children.
