There are clothes for women, and then there are stereotypical “Mum” clothes that slowly but surely take over your wardrobe. Let’s be honest, we all succumb to them at least once in the motherhood stakes – the stretchy waistbands call to us like ice cream in the sunshine. Then you have the t-shirts; three of them on rotation, all with permanent milk stains on the front no matter how we wash them.
And yet we all crave a change. We are desperate for something new and different to feel good, like a human being once more, not just Mom. The good news is that you can feel like a woman again, but you may have to shop online. Let’s be honest: does anyone want to drag the kids clothes shopping? Nope! You can search here for the best colors that suit you and feel fantastic about it when you do. You want to find clothes that will flatter your new Mum figure, so start with clearing out your wardrobe and then move forward from there. Here are some options for fashionable Mum clothes that you desperately need.
Casual Dresses. A dress can often make you feel way more put together than yoga pants, but finding a dress that fits and flares in the right way is a must. Try a t-shirt dress that skims and trims as it falls, and pair it with comfortable flat sandals in the right color. Only buy the correct size, though; you want it to fall well, not cling to the forgiving lumps that motherhood brings. T-shirt dress material won’t wrinkle, but you also need at least one maxi dress in your wardrobe. You want to be able to move around well with the kids while being able to sit on the floor and play! Maxi dresses are forgiving and functional, too.
Get A New Bag. Not everything is about your wearable clothes, but your accessories, too. Dispense with the diaper bag and go for a cute rucksack, or a clutch purse for the days you don’t go out with the children. Pick colors you love over the ones you think suit the stroller, too!
Trendy Sweats? There is such a thing as trendy sweats, and they’re perfect for picking the kids up from school and feeling comfortable at the same time. Add a simple t-shirt, and you’ve got an outfit that is comfortable and works.
Wrap It Up. Ditch the hoodie and sweater. You have no idea what comfort is until you grab a wrap shawl to go around you. It works as the perfect breastfeeding cover as well as a way to keep warm and look great at the same time. You can add a wrap to any outfit, from dresses to jeans and t-shirts; it’ll look fantastic no matter what you do!
These options can give you hope that there is such a thing as a stylish “Mum” wardrobe; don’t be afraid to experiment and mix and match. You can look great while being the best mother possible!
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
