Sometimes I feel like a walking stereotype of a stay at home mom. I spend my days driving kids around in my minivan. We go to Starbucks, Costco, Target and Trader Joe’s more than anywhere else and more often than not I’m in yoga pants. I mean, there’s a reason this stereotype exists and I play right into it.
Now that my kids are a little older, I have slightly more time to get ready in the mornings. I’ve been spending more time actually getting dressed at least half the week. It does so much for my mental health to do my hair and make up and put on something other than yoga pants. I just feel better about myself and I’m more likely to be more productive if I’m dressed. Plus, this is the first time in almost three years that my wardrobe isn’t limited due to pregnancy or nursing, so I’m slowly building it back up since most of my old stuff doesn’t fit the same way it did before getting pregnant.
Obviously, my wardrobe is still limited in that most of what I wear still needs to allow me to move easily, be practical and can be washed easily since I’m still used as a human Kleenex daily. PinkBlush is an online boutique that has so many cute options, at the perfect price point. This shirt I’m wearing below is the perfect option to feel put together, but still gives me the flexibility to perform all my mom duties (literally LOL!).
The top is tunic length and super soft. It would definitely work well with leggings.
The length was actually a little longer than I’d prefer with jeans, so I ended up knotting it to take away some of the length and give it a more fitted, structured look.
It’s a great piece to layer as the weather gets cooler.
