It’s funny to think back to my life before Chloe. What was I doing? Where was I going? How did I dress before Chloe? Not much has changed too drastically, but I definitely have a different way of thinking about my outfits during the days that I spend with her. I now ask a series of questions in my head like: is there something she can tug off of this? Can I bend down to pick her up? Will I be comfortable on my feet all day in these shoes? If need be, can I chase her down while wearing this? You know, just mom stuff.
I put together my two go-to mommy outfits to show you guys that you can be comfortable and chic while chasing your baby around!
This outfit is great because it’s the perfect balance between dressy and casual. The skirt gives the look a feminine vibe and the striped top is always a classic staple. When you think about chasing a toddler around, your first thought probably isn’t “I’ll wear a skirt!” But, a midi-skirt (like this one) is the perfect solution. It’s long enough to sit in or bend over in without giving everyone a show, not to mention it’s super chic. This one in particular is super comfortable because it has an elastic waist, which means it’s not constricting at all.
This is a much more laid back look that I love. A comfy pair of jeans, a soft button-down and a cardigan is always a good every day mommy look. When I’m spending the day with Chloe, I like to wear cardigans as opposed to sweaters or pull-overs because it gives me better range of motion and I can take it on and off much easier. And, like the first look, I threw on my Gucci loafer slides (similar here) because a. they’re super comfortable and b. they go with everything! I don’t think I’ve thrown something on that they didn’t look good with. Which is probably why I wear them so much…
I know that when you’re spending all day with a toddler, you probably just want to throw on sweats or workout clothes and be done with it (if you must wear sweatpants- check these out) but if you put yourself together just a little bit, I promise you’ll feel better throughout the day!
