New Mommy Style: The Illusion of Effort

I miss blogging.  I love putting together fantasy outfits and writing, and look forward to the day when I have that much free time.

However, this is what my life is like right now and I love it, too.

Here are the little ways that I'm (usually) able to avoid the disheveled look when Miles and I venture out in public:

- Wearing jeans, even if they're a maternity version or your largest pre-pregnancy fat jeans.  (It turns out that you can get really close to your pre-baby weight but not your pre-baby hip measurement.)

- A basic v-neck tee is easy to wear, hides spit up stains, and acts as a blank canvas for accessories like...

- Big statement sunglasses, a cool bracelet (since babies like to grab necklaces and then scream because he doesn't have the ability to let go), a big watch, and a bright purse.

- I don't usually wear much makeup, but I find that some eyeliner and this coral tinted lip balm (LOVE it!) is the perfect mix of easy and put together. 

And now I need to go nurse my two month old baby (where has the time gone?!) and freak out about returning to work in two weeks. 

Here we are celebrating Mother's Day.  I think I'll cry when he stops wearing tiny footed jammies and being cuddly.

See you soon!
