I’m a modern mom and while the yoga pants in my closet beckon me seductively every second of the day, I stay firm and juggle my kid, husband, household and work with these modern mom’s fashion – do’s and dont’s.
Why bother about Mom’s Fashion Do’s and Dont’s?
Because at the core of it all, you are still a human being. When you look good (Read – 3 Essentials to Look Great at Any AGE), you feel good and I for one can vouch that when the woman of the house feels good about herself, the house is happy too.
Mom’s Fashion – Do’s
>> Always make sure your underwear doesn’t show in whatever you’re wearing.
>> Wear proper shoes. Avoid the flipflops or Crocs.
>> Twist up your hair in a up-do that guarantees a chicness to your appearance.
>> Mix and match to your heart’s desire but mind the dont’s below.
>> Check your outfit and clean up any spills – food, drool, etc. – before going out.
Mom’s Fashion – Dont’s
>> Don’t let your kid(s) choose your outfit. It’s adorable but you might end up looking like a rainbow.
>> Avoid outfits that highlight the roundness of your tummy (Read – Top 20 Ways to Look Fat), making you look like you’re still pregnant.
>> Don’t wear heels if you’re not familiar walking in them anymore. This way you won’t look uncomfortable plus you won’t fall on your face.
>> Avoid buying clothes you MIGHT wear in the future. Stop purchases that you think will motivate you to look like your pre-pregnancy days.
>> Don’t apply too much makeup. Remember – less is more.
I hope you enjoyed these Modern Mom’s Fashion Do’s and Dont’s. But remember, at the end of the day, you are a mom and if you don’t feel like it, just don’t care. I sometimes like to scare my neighbourhood in yoga pants and oversized sweatshirts because.. well.. I felt like it. So there.
