Avoiding the “Mom Rut” In Fashion

Avoiding the “Mom Rut” In Fashion

I was recently sorting through old pictures of me “pre-children” and noted how cute and put together I was back then. My hair was cut regularly, my clothes were fun and fashionable and I had a very respectable handbag collection that never contained random lego pieces or pink hair bows. Why did becoming a mother lead to abandoning my fashion sense and falling into the “mom rut” of mainly sporting Lululemon pants, a (mostly) clean top and my hair in a messy top knot?
