The Mom-iform - How to Mom in Style ft. PinkBlush

Monday, May 8, 2017

Today, I am talking about the "mom-iform" + how to mom in style. Yes, you read that right + yes, I totally made that up! 

So you are probably wondering, "what is a mom-iform"? 
Put simply, it's a style uniform for mom's. Everyone has their go-to look when it comes to their personal style, but I feel like it's even more important to master one as a mom. I can honestly say that since having Bentlee {she will be two in September} my style has changed. Not in a bad way! Practicality + comfort have become my number one priority. With that being said, I have managed to achieve balance in my everyday look without having to sacrifice style! {THANK GOODNESS!} 

Here's what you need to know when creating your "mom-iform"...

Figure out what your style is
Get a good idea of what your style consists of by learning what you like. 
Start by thinking about someone's style you admire, like a close friend or celebrity. Try to pinpoint exactly what you like about their style + make it work for you. I am OBSESSED with Rihanna! {She's my BFF in my head!} I incorporate her unique style into mine by sporting a bold lip color on a Tuesday or styling sneakers with a dress instead of heels. 
You can also think about what you like to wear. If you are a leggings + sweatpants kind of girl, elevate your look with the athleisure trend. Rather wear a t-shirt + jeans? Mix up your look with bold accessories. Once you have perfected this, it will make getting ready SO MUCH EASIER! {Which is important when you have to get a mini version of you ready too!}

Find the balance between comfort + style
Figure out what comfort + style looks like to you. 
I mentioned this earlier + I will say this is something that is very important to me. There's a misconception that you can't have both + that is SO untrue. {Be the mom that can do both!} Even Victoria Beckham has traded in her heels for sneakers lately! I recently swapped out my traditional purse for a backpack. It keeps me handsfree since I literally chase BQ everywhere! + I get a ton of compliments whenever I wear it because of it's blush hue {which is now trending for spring}!  

Quality is key
Don't get me wrong I LOVE A GOOD DEAL, but when it comes to creating your mom-iform you quickly learn that quality is key. I have definitely invested in more quality pieces since becoming a mom + that's simply because I need + want things to last. Not only do you shop for yourself, but you also have a mini to shop for, + their needs ALWAYS come before yours. There are so many times when I'm shopping that I will put everything I wanted for myself back because I found so many amazing things for BQ. If you feel like you aren't able to shop for yourself as much as you used to, invest in quality pieces for your wardrobe. 

To show you how I mom in style, I have teamed up with PinkBlush, a trendy online boutique that always has the modern mom in mind! I have styled two of their spring pieces, which will be in heavy rotation with the rest of my wardrobe!

The Kimono
Elevate your basic tank + jeans with a printed kimono. The lightweight fabric will keep your look fresh, while also making you feel like a literal superhero when you are chasing your mini around town. You can also style a kimono with a solid colored dress + sneakers. 

The Midi Dress
Add a midi dress to your "mom-iform" rotation. The length is ideal for the mom on the go. For a little edge, pair this feminine piece with an unexpected element, like a denim jacket. You could also style this dress alone with a pair of neutral flats, sandals, or white sneakers. {+ yes, this dress does have pockets!}

I want to know - what's your "mom-iform"? 
+ for the record, whoever said mom's can't have style obviously wasn't doing it right!
