Oversized Open Back Sweater + Ripped Skinnies + Leather Slip On Tennis Shoes


I often get questions about staying fashionable while being a mom.  The truth is…there is a level of comfort that is needed when you are chasing your child around, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fashionable.  It doesn’t mean you have to say good bye to your former pre-kid style…

For me, I still wear a lot of the same things…with a few tweaks.

Here’s one of my go to looks.

Chunky knit + Ripped super stretchy (A MUST!!!) skinny jeans + Comfy Cool Tennis Shoe.
My favorite part of this sweater is the back!!  I’ve talked A LOT about my love of an interesting back.  You can look nice and conservative from the front, but give a hint of attitude when you turn around!

Later this week, I’ll show how I took this outfit from day to night.

Hint-I lost the tank top 🙂 Thank goodness for a zoom lens!  I kid you not.  She ran REALLY far from me!  How many moms can relate?  Oh…all of you?? 🙂 Clearly she thought it was hilarious…LOVE!!
LOVE all these next ones.  I honestly could have posted at least 5 more, but had to reign myself in at some point!
I’ll be SO sad when I can’t pick her up anymore!!!  The laughs right in my face…the tight cuddles…and even her licks (kisses).  😉  On me…

Sweater- One Teaspoon (eBay $5!, similar here and here)
Bra- H&M (old, similar here)
Top- Bordeaux (old, similar here)
On Maya…
Top- Kate Quinn Organic (thrifted, but cute print here)
Keeping it Real…
Hahaha.  I swear the time she is most in the mood to “pose” is when I’m trying to set up the tripod and the focusing stand.  I don’t want her in the shot, which of course means she WANTS to be in it 😉
Oh, and it should be noted that this is a very popular biking path.  SO…we were constantly jumping out of the way!
These leaves though!!!!  SO worth it!
Every once in a while she makes a very agressive dive/fall.  At almost 50lbs, that isn’t insignificant!!  My face here…hahaha. And….Maya got control of the remote again ha! What a lot of our shots look like…
(all pictures taken with a shutter release and tripod, except ones of Maya :))
