Becoming a mother has changed so many things about me. Some were expected:

1 – I don’t have much time for TV – sorry peeps, I know NOTHING of Game of Thrones

2– I don’t remember the last time I saw a movie. Wait, yes I do. It was Sex and the City 2. Don’t judge! The movie was meh but, the fashion was Ah-mazing!

There have been other changes that I didn’t see coming:

1 – The water works. I am far too emotional and the simplest things bring me to tears. I’m like a leaky faucet. Not my best quality, I’m sure.

2 – My style. I can no longer rock the dry clean only items. These special pieces are taking a sabbatical. Otherwise, I am asking for trouble! There will be stains people. Fruit, paint, you name it!

I tend to roll with machine washable only please. I still stay away from mostly white getups; I’m not that brave yet.

I’ve also learned my lesson about pretty, dainty jewelry. They’re a no-no around my curious toddler. He likes to grab anything and everything around mommy’s neck or ears. He needs to closely inspect them. Maybe it’s because I have a rough and tumble boy. I don’t know. I just know that chunky jewelry is the way to go for me. The man-child doesn’t know his own strength and his “gentle” touches can easily result in mommy’s broken necklace. He showed his super strength on a necklace the hubs bought me for our anniversary. I’d worn it all of a few weeks before it was broken. Womp!

So for my neckwear I’ve learned, the chunkier, the better! As for the ears, when around my baby boy, mama rocks studs… A LOT!

How has your style changed since becoming a mommy?

  1. The biggest change to my “look” is wearing flats. I was a high heel shoe everyday kind of girl before baby. It’s just not practical now. With all the lifting and chasing it’s just not realistic. I do try to wear heels at least twice a week, and I have learned that a wedge can be a Mom’s best friend!

  2. The biggest change to my “look” is wearing flats. I was a high heel shoe everyday kind of girl before baby. With all the lifting and chasing that I do these days it’s just not realistic. I do try to get back into my heels at least twice a week. I have also found wedges to be a Mom’s best friend!

  3. My son is almost 5 so I am pretty much back to what I did before he was born. However, I went through years of not wearing light colors or stuff I didn’t want to get stains on it. I remember when he was 2 and we at a fancy breakfast, I decided to wear a nice outfit and he used it to wipe syrup off his hands…….
    So yes, the rules certainly change for a bit. But don’t toss that stuff out, you’ll wear it again………….some day. 😉

  4. I’m with you on the earrings! RJ likes to pull on mine. The thought of a split earlobe freaks me out, so I try to avoid dangling earrings around him.
    I normally wear darker colors and definitely machine washable clothing!

  5. I am ashamed to say *sigh* I have not worn heels since I have become a mommy and that has been since 2006. I have however kept my hair done even if all I do is wear sweats every single day.

  6. I don’t dress as cute as I did before I had kids. I use to be on it! I wear simple things that I can get out of quickly in case the kids stain them. Why do I have to bring a change of clothes everywhere?

  7. I am DEFINITELY way more casual on a daily basis..a lot of that has to do with no longer working a full time job too.
    I would agree…definitely have a lot more washable items and less dry clean…but I do wear white…call me brave…lol..I will most likely ditch it when the new lil one arrives (at least for a little while).

  8. My daily wear is mix of casual and chic. Easy enough to make a playground or school run. And since I’m shopping mainly a Target this summer my wardrobe is machine wash only:)

  9. My jeans dont fit over my belly:-) but no seriously I am sure more things will change when the littlest Pancakes comes…hopefully the TV watching will cease:)

  10. Sigh. I live in tennis shoes and flats now. And flip flops ( hangs head in shame). And jeans. But I still rock my earrings. Pookah KNOWS not to yank mommy’s jewlery!!

  11. I’ve been a studs woman for a while now. Shoes, I have to wear flats, even though I want to buy a nice pair of heels, but she makes that hard for me, SHE wants to wear my heels.

    Yup, I don’t rock white, because I know I will have food on it. My fashion has changed since being a mommy.

  12. as curious as my boy was, i couldn’t let go of my hoops. once i let him fiddle with them in my ears, he wasn’t interested anymore. i don’t think i had the energy to think about style with either pregnancy. i was too sick the first time and suffered from heartburn the second. all i wanted was comfort – nothing else mattered.
