Does anyone else look at your closet and wonder where other moms shop? Before I had children, the majority of my closet was just work clothes. Then I got pregnant with my daughter and I absolutely loved maternity clothes. My favorite maternity clothes came from Motherhood Maternity, and I still have some of their clothes that I’ll wear even now! And then with breastfeeding I found I could mainly only wear shirts and blouses that could lift up easily or lower or unbutton for easy breastfeeding access. After each pregnancy though, I’ve looked at the clothes in my closet and wondered where other mamas shopped.
I personally am a big Target, Old Navy and Stitch Fix fan. For those who don’t know what Stitch Fix is, it’s an online personal stylist company that picks clothes out for you based on your clothing taste and size. I love it. I look forward to that white and turquoise box each month, and get to try on five different items. Whatever I don’t want I simply put back in the envelope and mail back (for free), and the items I do want I just pay for through their website or on their app. I like Stitch Fix because they help me go outside of my usual fashion zone. Sometimes I’ll try something on and be a little skeptical at first but then when I see how it looks on I’ll get inspired.
Anyways, I was genuinely curious about what other moms wore. Especially for me personally, after being pregnant and/or breastfeeding for these past 3+ years (and continuing to breastfeed), I felt like I was totally out of the fashion loop. What is still “in”? What is no longer cool? I literally Googled “what do moms wear?” And “Mom clothes” and got back some vastly different results. Some looked like what I would imagine a grandmother would wear, some looked like items only models would wear. And some just had a whole bunch of cats on every clothing item. I just… I don’t even know with that one. So yeah. It’s kind of a confusing time. At least for me. Where do I fit in as a 30 year old mom of two kids? Because right now I’m aiming for comfort while not looking like “just Mom”, if that makes sense?
So for today’s post I want to hear from all of you! Where do you shop? Are you online shoppers? In store shoppers? What are some of your favorite places to buy clothes? Let me know! Because right now my toddler girl and baby boy have some pretty cute clothes and I’d love to get some for myself too! #momproblems
