If you’re reading this, chances are you’re a Mom, if not, you know a Mom and know what I mean when I say that I use to have fashion sense! I would go as far as to say, I was a trendsetter!
After 6 years of daily poop explosions, dinner-time tantrums and breastfeeding super-soaker catastrophe’s, I have completely lost it. I can spend all the time I want “Pinning” cute outfits to my “Style” board, window shopping and keeping up with celebrities, and nothing is going to change it.
Sure I have an idea of how I’d like to dress, but to be honest, my lovely lady lumps that would have once made necks break, in a pair of high waisted shorts, are now just plain old lumps.
I mean look at “dat ass”!
WTF HAPPENED TO THIS ASS AND THIS DEFINITION IN MY FACE??!
Long story short; I have decided to embrace what I’ve got now, and share it with you all, in hopes to learn that I’m not the only one who didn’t manage to make it to “M.I.L.F” status…or maybe just isn’t there yet.
So here it is; Mom Style: Outfit Of The Day Part 1 (I plan on many, many more of these)
As you can clearly see here, today I chose a style I’m calling, “I’m not brushing anything today”
This outfit was inspired by the 6:45am tantrum by my 5 year old, over not wanting to go to school for no reason.
The t-shirt is from “Turtlini’s“, a hole in the wall, pizza place my husband worked at before we were married.
There’s a turtle on the back with a chef hat, and a pizza in its hand.
I found this in my bedroom floor, kind of close to the “clean pile“.
Whether it’s actually clean or not, I’ll leave up to your imagination 😉
The cardigan is from Charlotte Russe’ clearance rack, back in 2009, at the beginning of my senior year of high school.
I have worn this at least once or twice a week since I bought it.
There are 3-4 holes in it now, but it’s so comfy!
It’s my one thing, I’ll never throw out and YOU CAN’T MAKE ME!
And can we talk about these pants?!
These are new, as in I spent a Target gift card from Christmas on these
(I don’t ever get to actually buy clothes for myself, and I struggled to bring myself to get these).
*Notice the F.U.P.A (fat upper pubic area); this is a recent development…or at least it has to be, because I didn’t notice it until I looked at this photo. WTF I’m only 24!*
I did, in all the chaos, manage to paint my toes last night, so that’s a plus.
The headband is from the month our 7 year old took karate classes.
And the background, I feel is worth mentioning; our oldest two like to make “How-To” videos. This is their backdrop, and the only semi-swept area of the kitchen.
I’m a mess.
I’ll get it together one day, probably…maybe?
But for now, we can laugh at ourselves together.
I think that’s important.
