mom uniform

No matter what stage of life you’re in, we all have our go-to ensembles that make up our personal style. For some, it’s jeans and a t-shirt, others dresses and tights or it could be a signature piece like a leather moto jacket. A daily ‘look’ is part of us, and communicates our individuality. That said, lately I got to thinking about my current ‘look’ because it is always slightly shifting dependent upon life circumstances. And since right now I’m in new-mom mode, it’s a “need to be easy – but still want to feel fashionable – yet must be functional” kind of phase.

Overalls (as seen in my instagram feed) continue to live-on as my go-to uniform because they are super comfortable, stylish, durable, can be dressed up (or down), nursing friendly, are waistline forgiving, and a complete outfit in one which is a no-brainer. I’ve stocked my closet with a few options in black, blue and white denim because they are on constant rotation. Other items that are working in my current new-mom role are a hat (because time spent on hair has been generously reduced since having Vida), comfortable shoes, a chic backpack to throw in tons of yours and baby crap, a scarf to cover yourself when nursing and a cozy sweater. Like I tell my pre/postnatal clients, don’t throw in your (style) towel and give-up because life has changed. If anything, mama-hood is a time to feel your most beautiful because all those good vibes are being absorbed by another life. I recognize the need for ease during this transition, but make sure your uniform empowers you! You just created a human – you basically have superpowers and can do anything.

If ya’ll followed along when I was pregnant, you would have found me frequently discussing prenatal shopping strategies and how to make cost-effective investments. One of my key tips is/was buying dresses that flex with a changing shape and fit during pregnancy and beyond. Here I am putting my own advice into practice, wearing a style I wore beginning at 6 months pregnant (shown here and in the video attached here!), and now wearing it styled as a skirt 6 months postpartum. I wore a ton of non-maternity clothes during my pregnancy, but I kept in mind styles that would go the distance. Getting creative with your wardrobe is critical and creating a capsule collection to get you through this journey (which goes well past birth) is the ultimate goal. This involves careful curation and setting yourself up for success. While I realize from personal experience and from working with my prenatal clients that much of your closet won’t fit for some time (like your jeans), there are many that will. If you are looking for some support in making this all happen, check out my prenatal package, and reach out at so I can help you get there.
