Becoming a mom is a life-changing event. It’s the moment which the bulk of a woman’s attention moves from herself to her child forever. While it’s incredibly easy to get completely caught up in the joys (and trials) of raising children, it’s so important for us women to remember that we need time to celebrate our own style and personality, too. Becoming a mom doesn’t have to mean baggy jeans and minivans.
I take pride in being a trendy parent and I’ve learned over the years that maintaining my cool as a mom doesn’t have to be hard. For me, it starts with clothes. I’ve always been a big fan of seasonal wardrobe purging. About twice a year I go through every item in my closet and get rid of clothes that don’t fit, that I don’t wear or that don’t suit my current style. To keep my cool factor, I finish off that purge by updating my look with trendy new pieces. There’s no need for a whole new wardrobe; hot red heels with snakeskin accents and a cute new top in a fresh spring print can give a whole closet an updated feel.
