When you become a mom, your priorities shift. Your life, and your appearance slide down your list of what’s important. Once, you were the center of your universe. Now, nothing is about you. But, what if it’s possible to embrace motherhood, and still keep some sense of yourself? There’s a lot of focus on ditching the mom gear, but some of us don’t want to go that far. In fact, we’re quite happy with our image as a mom. That is who we are now. It’s our proudest achievement and our top priority. But, it would also be nice to do the mom thing is a stylish way. We may be mom’s, but we haven’t lost our sense of style! The good news is, it’s possible to stay stylish. Read on to find out how!

They’re easy to slip on, and they can look amazing!
CARRY EVERYTHING…IN A STYLISH BAG

Even as they age, you need to take along drinks, snacks, and tissues. You are the mom machine! But, heavy nappy bags are not a good look. The good news is, there are plenty of larger bags that look more stylish. You could opt for a woven leather bag, or a brightly colored choice.
