Dress Like A Mom

Spread the love

I talk a lot about my transition into fashion since I became a mom. Nursing tanks is what I lived in for what seemed like the first 6 months of my baby’s life. I could barely sneak in a shower, let alone do my hair. That woman who wore four-inch stilettos on a daily basis and accessorizes her wardrobe according to color and pattern I lost. I love dressing up, so much that one of my mottos is “I’d rather be over dressed than under dressed.” I was known as the fashionista around the office. I wore tall platform heels until I was 9 months pregnant peeps! That’s a whole lot of love for shoes! I also have to be honest. Becoming a mom I thought I needed to dress more conservatively. A little more bland. Okay a lot more bland. Moms weren’t necessarily known to be fashion forward I’m afraid to say. Fast forward to a year later and I saw many stylish mamas on social medias! Rocking the stroller and the not so obvious diaper bag in this seasons fabric and heels! My beloved heels! That’s when I knew I have to find myself again. This mama was still fashionable folks, I just needed to feel confident again. Six months after that realization and I have gravitated toward fabulous brands to help me into my journey in fashion…as a mom! I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a store that gets this essential piece of who I am. A store that believes in breaking the stereotype. Moms ARE the most fashionable people we know! That store my friends in Evereve.

My Experience at Evereve

What a beauty! My first impression of the store was what a trendy boutique! “This has my name all over it.” I thought to myself. Elegant displays throughout. Large, wide isles that allowed me to navigate my stroller with ease. A children’s play area in front of the fitting rooms! Not to mention over sized fitting rooms to accommodate my son and I effortlessly. I was impressed y’all. Shortly after I arrived I was greeted warmly by an in store stylist that offered her assistance in my shopping experience. I of course, happily accepted. She swiftly and eloquently guided me through the clothes asking me questions along the way to pull items that fit my body and lifestyle. She was efficient and styled my fitting room so well that provided me with many beautiful options!

The Clothes

I must say this caught me a little off guard. You know when you try on clothes, half you rule out because it doesn’t fit so well? Well that did not happen here! I kid you not. Everything fit like a glove! The jeans…wow. they hugged my curves, lifted my mom butt and the high-rise smoothed my belly. The tops were perfectly long and soft, my gosh so soft. How was I going to select when I loved everything? I wanted a more casual feel so I had my stylist select accordingly. These outfits I can feel fabulous in and still chase around my toddler comfortably. No need to worry about pulling my pants up and tugging my blouse down. They were casual enough for the movies but gorgeous enough for brunch with my best friends. It was absolutely remarkable how perfect they were.

The Final Fashion Selections

I chose a lighter colored jean as my primarily focus was day wear. I have a feeling I am going to live in them for a while. The most soft, blush 3/4 sleeve sweater style blouse. You would have thought it was cashmere! I also chose a burnt orange sleeveless blouse with a looser, bell-shaped. Y’all know how much I love my copper, burnt orange and leather colors for fall. This one is so perfect because it’s still so warm in Arizona. It makes me feel like I can still enjoy autumn attire without roasting. Last but not least, and possibly my favorite; the ruffle sleeve blouse. Though it’s a more editorial look, it’s feminine, romantic and it’s cropped style actually elongated my physique. Now while I did not take home with me, I did fall in love with the most gorgeous velvet, olive blouse. I am still kicking myself for not getting it. I seriously contemplate on going back for it, ha ha. Velvet desperately needs to be more in my life.

So there you have it! I would love to know your thoughts. Which was your favorite? Visit your nearest Evereve store for your own exclusive shopping experience.

Rocking the bold summer romper

You want to stand out in a good way right? Rompers during the summer are essential. You can dress them up or down with your shoes or accessories. This particular Saraboo romper has this marble like print I personally see as more dressy. However because it’s still shorts, mostly likely I would wear to a daytime engagement. Therefore I would rock a steep, sexy wedge. This will elongate your legs and give you much height!

My favorite part about this romper is in t he details of course. More specifically the neck details. The crossed knot gives it the uniqueness you want without it being too much. You can find this exact romper here.

The Summer Romper

Ahhh the summer romper… it is absolutely one of my dressier casual go tos. It’s feminine, it’s casual, it’s comfortable and perfect for any atmosphere; day or night. This fabulous one is from
Tobi

It has a smoked waist and this olive color is dreamy. 😍 You can get this exact one here. This is perfect with wedges or flats depending on the occasion of course. I would always pair I olive with gold accessories instead of silver. Earrings and bracelets will suffice as you do not need a necklace with this halter neckline. I see many bbqs, ballparks, shopping and gatherings in this sweet piece.

Guess who has a new Just Mommy N Me Box? Yup us! Okay so you know since I started this blogging journey, I have been posting matching mommy and me outfits with our little guy right? No, it was not a coincidence. Ha ha. So when I heard there is a subscription box (you also know I love subscription boxes 😄) that provides you monthly matching mommy and me fashion I jumped on board!

Just Mommy n Me

This wonderful subscription company includes different boutique items as well as personally designs in each box. On the 20th of every month, a box is shipped to your home! I LOVE delivery day! Upon subscribing, you select your mommy size and whether your child is a boy or a girl along with their size.  That way it is as personalized as possible to you and your little one.

June’s box was 4th of July themed so I received a headband and baby boy an adorable scarf and shorts (not pictured) from the features company Pickled and Peach Co! We absolutely loved them and cannot wait to wear them this independence day. 🤗 Take a look! You can subscribe to Just Mommy n Me here.
