Mom life can be a busy life, we wear so many many hats for everyone else that sometimes, we forget to set aside time to think about the outfits we put on. I’ve pulled together some easy tips for the stay at home mom, work from home mom, and 9-5(ish) mom. I hope this helps you create a wardrobe you love, mama!
The key to building a Momiform™ is to start with the basics and curate a closet that is cohesive. Moms have a lot of roles, they need wardrobes that work for them, not the other way around. Being able to transition from one area of life to the next is important so that is what we are focusing on today.
A transitional and cohesive momiform™ will look different depending on your lifestyle but anyone can do this- the stay at home mom, the corporate working mom, and the work from home mom.
The Stay At Home Mom
I know that wearing leggings on the daily is SUPER TEMPTING, I mean you’re “just at home” right? Wrong. You are the CEO of your home, your job is important and the way you dress for that role has an impact on your productivity, the way you feel about yourself and your relationships. Here’s an easy swap that’s just as comfortable but really looks put together. This look would help you to feel confident when the UPS person is delivering, when someone stops by unexpected or when you have to run out to the store but then can easily transition to a dinner out, evening activities for the kids, or whatever your calendar fills up with.

The Work Outside of the Home Mom
Business casual work attire can be fun and personal, it doesn’t have to be the old school office attire. Ankle length trousers, fun shoes, and prints can add a lot of personality to your 9-5. But we know that a mother’s work is never done and doesn’t actually end at 5pm. There are soccer games, girls nights, daycare pickup, dinner dates, networking events… and the list goes on. Just a few tweaks to your look and you have a really easy transitional outfit.

The Work From Home Mom
It’s easy to think that a perk to this position is working from bed in your pj’s. Sounds great, but that idea doesn’t translate well. It’s proven that when we actually get ready for the day, we are more productive, we feel more confident and we put out our best work. There’s also the importance of social media in most work from home jobs, this requires us to show up on video at random moments and when we look like a hot mess it’s hard to expect anyone to believe that we’re an expert in our field. Here’s an easy fix so that you are dressed for the job and a few transition pieces in case you need to pop out for a meeting at the coffee shop or lunch with a friend.
