How does one even become a stylish mom?
After adding the title of, Mom, to your already long list of titles, personal style has been overwhelming and at some point along the way you’ve gone from cool to frumpy. The clothes hanging in your closet don’t fit your current lifestyle and maybe not even your current body. EVERY. THING. HAS. CHANGED.
You don’t have time for shopping but even if you did, you wouldn’t know where to start. The frustration and overwhelm leads you to those cozy stretchy, mom life friendly leggings… day after day. You pickup a new shirt at Target from time to time in between grabbing toilet paper and an overdue birthday card for your bestie.
Maybe you’ve ventured out and ordered a style subscription box or swiped up on your favorite mom bloggers latest obsession in hopes that you would open the package and find your new and improved style inside. It’s not your fault that they delivered you empty promises, mama. But I know you’re tired of the high expectations that yield little to no results.
You’re ready for real results, you’re ready to SHOW UP for yourself and your people. I’m here to help you take the first steps towards showing up as the best and most stylish version of yourself. So lets get to it.
MOM STYLE ROADMAP
Before you can decide what outfits to wear and pieces you need to buy, you have to start with determining your personal style. What’s your mom style type? What’s your body shape? What kind of clothes do you need for the lifestyle you live? This is where you build the foundation and create a roadmap to your Mom Style. It will serve as a reference point for intentional shopping versus impulse buys, a place to come back to when you’re wondering if that trend is really right for you.
IMPLEMENT A ROUTINE
Intentions without action are useless. Mama, you’re worth spending time, effort, and money on. Setting aside time to get ready and curating a cohesive Momiform™ that you can grab and go from, is the key to consistently showing up. Determining what fills you up before you pour out to everyone else is going to set you up for success. But how do you make sure these things get done? A simple yet effective routine.
BACK TO BASICS
Trends are super fun, but they can’t build a Momiform™ like basics can. I hate rules when it comes to fashion but the 80/20 rule for budgeting clothes works well for myself and my clients. Spending 80% of a clothing budget on basics and 20% on trends keeps mama from having a closet full of nothing to wear. Having a list of Summer basics will help you to curate pieces that will lead to bottomless outfit formulas. The secret to having more outfits is not shopping, it’s making sure you have the basics.
Did you think I was just going to give you a list of “must have items” you should order for your closet? I’m actually going to tell you to hold off on doing any shopping and find out a little bit more about who you really are and how you want to portray that message to the world. Style is a journey and I’m REALLY EXCITED for you to get started. Going through these 3 steps will help you determine the disconnect between your expectations for style and the clothes that hang in your closet.
Doing the work upfront will save you hours and hours in the long run. Having clarity around your style is the difference between confident-cute-motivated you and frumpy-unproductive you showing up to raise littles, run your household, and keep your relationship alive.
