"Momiform": Back to Basics
Hello party peeps, I'm excited to introduce a new series I'm doing called "The 'Momiform' Diaries". What's a "momiform" you ask, a mom uniform of course. Moms get such a bad rep for having notoriously unflattering style and if I have to single handedly change that then I will!!! The first part of the series is reworking the typical mom outfit, a t-shirt and jeans...here we go...
The T-Shirt: Moms, please stop wearing sloppy t-shirts that are 4 sizes too big....its not helping anyone!! I understand the need for practical shirts (being a mom myself and all) so my solution is Stylemint, they have the perfect balance of comfort and chicness for a mom on the go!!
T: Stylemint-Mine is sold out but here is a similar style...and its on sale!!
The JeansThe Jeans: Man...who hasn't heard the term "mom jeans"? Come on ladies...this is a simple fix...find a cut that works for your body type and fits you properly so that you know you can just throw them on and go....and go with interesting washes and different colors, it takes it up a notch!
White skinnies- Urban Outfitters, available here
Shoes: Ick, I see it every day...the horribly unattractive but "comfy" mom footwear. I'm not saying that its easy to find super chic flats (I've spent months curating my fall shoe collection, which I will be showing on Monday!) and lord knows I miss my heels, but I promise if you put a little extra effort into picking stylish mom-approved footwear then it will pay off! My answer to almost everything is a chic loafer.
Loafers: Shoemint- available here
The Finishing TouchesAccessories: I know you are in a hurry, jeesh my getting ready routine has been reduced to about 10 minutes...but to pull this look together I SERIOUSLY suggest adding a statement necklace and a chic, practical handbag. How long do those 2 things take to throw on..5 seconds...I don't want to hear any excuses!
Necklace, bag and bracelets: Stella & Dot all available here
Boom, done!And there you have it....wasn't that easy? Jeans and a t-shirt can be totally chic but still mom-appropriate. Now get excited for the next installment of "The 'Momifrom' Diaries"!
