Fashion Friday – Dressing those little ladies

As a mom to a little girl, one of my favorite things to do is browse around looking for adorable outfits to put on her. It’s kind of interesting how that came to be though, because at first, I wasn’t into baby clothes. In fact, for the first 6 months of her life, my girl was dressed in hand-me-downs or gifts from family and friends and I was perfectly happy that way.

I remember the exact day that I first went shopping for a new outfit for her though. We were in Oregon, and we were sightseeing and she had a diaper accident and no back-up clothes on hand. Luckily, we were at a mall though, so for the first time, I walked into a Gymboree.

Cute Baby OutfitAnd then it was over. I walked out with practically one each of every adorable outfit they had and then I was hooked. I LOVE baby clothes. And I’ve been on the hunt for the most adorable outfits out there, ever since. This is a photo from Harper’s 1st birthday photo shoot, (and one of my proudest Baby outfit moments). Dressing babies is so much fun!

What are you favorite outfits that you’ve put together for you babies?

Fashion Friday – Mommy Hair

I LOVED what pregnancy did to my hair. I had traditionally kept my hair pretty short, but the influx of hormones did something when I was pregnant that made my hair grow really fast and look super healthy (I hear that the prenatal vitamins helped as well!) I heard about the postpartum hair loss that occurs for most mommies after pregnancy, and I was lucky enough to avoid that for the 9 months that I was breastfeeding (another benefit!), but once Harper self-weaned, it happened. And I spent the next 6 months wearing a ponytail. And even after that, I ended up chopping it all off, which resulted in the “Mommy haircut” that so many of my friends before had adopted after baby.

There are lots of benefits to short hair, the first of course is that its faster. The biggest issue I had with my hair when it was long was the time it took to dry it. And next was Harper’s tendency to wrap it around her little fist and pull. (Ouch!) I imagine that these are the top two reasons that Mommies have for deciding to go short.

Despite all those benefits though, there’s just something really youthful looking about long hair, which makes me want to regrow mine. Mommies- did you cut your hair after baby? Did you end up regrowing it? What were the reasons you had for cutting or keeping your locks?

Fashion Friday – The Evolution of Maternity Style

We’ve come a long way, baby. From maternity gowns, to the days of the A-line maternity shirt, to today’s bump-hugging sophisticated styles, maternity wear has evolved from fashion to hide your growing belly, to fashion designed to show it off.

Even before I was pregnant (way back in 2009), I was envious of the cute maternity clothes in the windows of maternity stores. So, I was super excited when I finally got my chance to embrace my Mommy-style. At the time of my pregnancy, trendy little dresses were in- with crisscrossed v-neck necklines and ties around the waist to accentuate a growing Mommy’s curves. I also rocked the basic t-shirt and jeans look quite frequently- something that usually looks pretty standard to me, but maternity designers somehow made it look hip. I was so sad when I no longer needed my maternity clothes, and had to pack them away.

Trendy Maternity DressFast forward only 2 years later, and already maternity fashion has changed. Again, I’m envious of the trendy dresses that I see on the Mommies-to-be around town. It looks like “chic” is in now, whereas the trend was more casual during “my time”. Makes me think that when we’re ready for baby #2, the box of maternity clothes that I have in our attic will be too behind the times. I guess I’ll just have to go on another maternity shopping spree some day. I mean, come on- it’s not going to take a lot of arm twisting. And #1 on my list will be this adorable stripey maternity dress from Destination Maternity. That is, if the trends don’t change again by then.
