Look, I love style blogs as much as the next girl. Browsing through endless pages of The Sartorialist or 9 to 5 Chic or Keiko Lynn is basically my sub-free version of a cocktail at the end of the day.
But I would rarely, if ever, emulate their style. Why? Well, because I take care of a baby all day and wearing silk shirts or 4 different layers would just be silly. A lot of what I see and like simply isn't practical and just doesn't feel right for me at this point and place in my life. My personal style changed a lot when I had Reese, and most of what I used to wear and what I see just feels fussy to me right now.
I think that's why a lot of women slide into frump-dom after having a baby (Insert resounding DUH here) and is definitely what I struggled with most post-baby-stay-at-homedness. However, there are a lot of very stylish (frequently photographed) mothers out there for some real life inspiration. (And, no, I'm not talking about wearing a baby and platform heels on the beach.)
To that end, I've started a Pinterest board devoted to everyday style inspiration, the kinds of outfits that might not blow anyone away, but are practical and good looking. Here are a few of the images I'm looking to before I get dressed in the morning.
Michelle Williams, my hipster aspirational self.
That baby knows what's up.
I'd probably swap the heels for flats, but Miranda Kerr constantly kills it.
