How would you describe your style?

I’ve never put a label on my style because I feel like it doesn’t really fall into just one category, but if I must, I would say that for the most part it’s a mix of casual, cool, tomboy, effortless, minimal and classic.

How has your style changed since becoming a mom?

Well, I became a mother at 20, so all my experimenting with fashion and style as an adult woman has happened while I was a mom. Before children, as in high school days, my style was very casual cool. And that hasn’t really changed much.

What style tip would you give other moms?

If I could give any mom a style tip it would be to wear what makes you feel 100% you. Sometimes easier said than done, but I find that when you feel 100% yourself, you actually look your best and people notice that.

My style is practical. I like classic pieces mixed with trendy pieces. When purchasing something, I look for versatility, quality and cost-per-wear. I enjoy mixing high priced items with lower priced items.

How has your style changed since becoming a mother?

I’m finding my style after becoming a mom. I guess you could say I’m finding my own style and not just adhering to what I think I’m supposed to wear. My style has become a little more daring! For example, I’m not afraid to wear hole-y jeans.

What style tip would you give other moms?

Make sure your clothes fit. I got stuck in a rut after becoming a mom of wearing clothes that were too big. You can buy the cutest top or pants, but if it doesn’t fit, it won’t look nearly as good.

How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is currently minimal, modern and really trying my best to make whatever I am wearing chic.

How has your style changed since becoming a mother?

Just like in life, I feel like my personal style is constantly evolving, but always keeping the same elements of classic sophistication. Right now I am going a bit more minimalist and even modern than I use to. I think having a baby has been the biggest catalyst to my current simple/minimalist style. I try to choose things that look good but are also easy to wear and, let’s be honest, easy to clean. Also, my baby boy is going throw his ‘grab-anything-shiny’ stage so I try to keep my jewelry minimal, focusing more on my bag or my shoes.

What style tip would you give other new moms?

Just because you become a mom doesn’t mean you have to change your style. Maybe make a few updates here and there just because life is different, such as choosing materials like cotton or jersey that are easy to care for and clean.
