Even if you're not a mom, I love this advice on why you should and a simple way on how to find time to spend on yourself. Selfcare is so important. Mom Style tips 101. Including one quick and easy one - just take these first steps! Also, her advice on why what stage of momhood or (life for non moms) matters.
Yeah. For most moms, there's always something we could be doing. There's always someone we could be Helping you have to make a conscious choice and effort that you're going to spend a little of the 24 hours you've been given on yourself and you need to recognize that that's not frivolous. one of the best ways to up your style easily is to pick out your outfit the night before. Most moms don't have the time or the bandwidth to get creative with their outfits in the morning. So I end up wearing the same stuff all the time. They feel boring, they feel frumpy laying out your clothes at night always results in using more of what you own and wearing things that you're happier with. Always every single time I worked with a linda who had young school age kids, quite a few of them and mornings were hectic. They were crazy. She wanted better mom style and she frequently felt embarrassed at school drop off, but she just couldn't get it together in the morning. I've got two kids, but I can relate to that one. I suggested laying out her outfit the night before and she told me that doing that felt really self involved and like, and I quote like style mattered to her. I was sort of like, well wait, didn't you just pay someone hundreds of dollars to come to your house and help you have better style? Isn't that admitting that style matters? But I think she verbalized what a lot of us feel like taking those minutes to play in our closets and create a fun outfit makes us just a silly fashion girl. It doesn't, that's not it at all. It makes you a person who is short on time and wants to feel more confident. I don't see the frivolity in that if style matters to you, you've got to throw some time at it. If you don't have closed, you're going to have to take some time to get some, if you don't have leisurely mornings to put together fabulous outfits, you're going to have to find time somewhere else. So this is step one, admit you want better style and be willing to put even a tiny bit of time into it. Tip number two recognize the stage of motherhood you're in and dress accordingly. Listen, I am not one of those people who says you should be in blouses and heels three weeks after giving birth if that's you hats off to you mama, but I give a lot of grace to women with infants who are getting spit up on on the regular if your wardrobe for a few months is nothing but easy care teas and comfy pants. Rock on mama. I get it. However, I think most women stay in this face a lot longer than they need to because they fail to recognize things are different. You've probably heard me share the story of the linda who said she needed clothes. She could play on the floor with her kids in. But when we dug a little deeper, we discovered her kids were like eight and 10. That's not exactly playing building blocks on the floor with your kid kind of age. What had happened is that she got stuck in this idea that she was a mom and she had to be able to do functional mom things at a moment's notice, not realizing that the things she was really doing had changed and evolved. Playing with blocks on the floor does mean leggings and yoga pants. For the most part, playing games at the table with your kids means jeans aren't a crazy idea. one thing I like to ask moms is what laundry stage are you in When my youngest was a baby, She was what her doctor called.
