Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in style, thrifting, saving money, travel and being a SAHM. Love that you're here!

Pretty and Feminine Mom Style

Pretty and Feminine Mom Style

Let's be honest here. I'm a mom. That means most of my days consist of wiping a dirty bottom, face or hands. I get drool, dirt and food stains on almost all my clothes, not because I'm messy, but because I have a toddler. It's not a glamorous life, and anyone who tells you it is, has a full time nanny doing all the dirty work!

 

I love every minute of being his mother, and he's the sweetest child in the world! But a lot of times I do not feel attractive or pretty. It's not my choice to look like a slob half the time, but I don't necessarily want to even attempt to get presentable for the day, when I know messy is right around the corner.

 

That's why I cherish those moments when I can put on something so romantic and feminine that makes me feel absolutely pretty. This look is exactly the opposite of my life as a mom. It's not practical at all for moms, unless that mom is willing to get it completely messed up, which I'm not. It's white, has strings and slits, and very high heels.

 

 

What this style is perfect for, is a day out with the girls, or a night out with my husband. This is the type of outfit that doesn't make me feel like a mom. Or look like one.

 

 

I found this dress during Forever 21’s additional 60% off clearance sale. It was originally $27, marked down to $9, plus an additional 60% off! I knew this dress was not practical for me all the time. But with a deal like that, I couldn't pass it up, for exactly those reasons above that I mentioned.

 

 

Every mom/woman needs an outfit that makes her feel gorgeous and feminine. This is one for me, and thankfully I didn't spend a ton on an outfit I will probably only wear a couple times. I was also able to snag the shoes from Zulily for a mere $24. Although they are high, they will go with many other outfits. Plus, the block heel makes them more practical for mom's than stilettos.

 

 

What about you? What kind of styles and outfits make you feel ultra feminine and pretty? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear about them.
