Mamas! For Mom Street Style this week we have something a little different. New mom Casey is sharing not only a pic, but her top ten favorite pieces of clothing. We're talking about her most-used, hardest working, ten favorite pieces. So without further ado...here's Casey.
Hi! I’m a new mom, enjoying life staying home several days a week with my son in Northwest Philadelphia. I’m a former kindergarten teacher and elementary administrator, now working part-time as an instructional coach in a turnaround school in North Philly. I'm also dabbling in some writing and figuring out what’s next!
I swore to myself that I wouldn’t give into the temptation of wearing yoga pants every day as a new mom, but I’m not gonna lie; since the birth of my son I’ve definitely rocked my Lululemons more than I'd care to admit. That said, I’ve been relatively successful in avoiding the mommy uniform, especially after I grew accustomed to my new life and body.
The changes I’ve encountered since becoming a mom have included not only a new chunky little sack of cute named Oliver, but also a transition from a full time job to a part-time gig and some undesirable (though totally worth it) changes to my figure. As a result, my wardrobe has morphed into a collection of comfy, easy, versatile clothes that cover my new mom pooch and still maintain a sense of style and fun. By mining my existing closet and purchasing a few new pieces, I’ve come up with a rotation of several items that I can mix and match. My outfits must be suitable for walking to the farmer’s market with my little guy, going to my part-time job at an elementary school, or walking to a local restaurant for a family dinner.
Though I certainly wear more than just these 10 pieces (and add my own flair with accessories - especially long circle scarves, which do wonders in camouflaging the belly), I have whittled down my list to just my 10 most crucial pieces for the late winter/early spring.
