Since becoming a SAHM it’s been a real challenge to keep up with my appearance. I didn’t realize until recently how much I had let myself go over the last 4 years. I showered maybe 3-4 times a week, never worried about what my hair looked like, and stopped using makeup all together. My wardrobe consisted of black yoga pants, black tank tops, and black shirts. I stopped caring about accessories, purses, and my jewelry started collecting dust. I never looked in the mirror and hated being in photos with the kids. It was bad and I was miserable.
After bringing it up in a few of my moms groups I realized it’s more common than I thought, more importantly I wasn’t alone. I decided enough was enough and I needed to stop making excuses. I started shopping around for fun clothes again, which lead me to participating in my first LuLaRoe Pop Up on Facebook. All the sudden my closet was full of color, fun patterns, and even cute dresses! From there I started investing in accessories and paid more attention to my appearance and how much time I spent taking care of myself each day.
I realized part of the problem is finding fun yet practical and reasonably priced clothing. I decided to take on the challenge and this mini series to share some of the stores, brands, and outfits that fit my needs as a stay at home mom.

It seems fitting to share my new found love of LuLaRoe leggings as the first style in this new series. Have you heard of their amazingly butter soft leggings? As the proud owner of over a dozen of these amazing leggings they have worked their way into my wardrobe several times a week.

I had so much fun with this look and felt amazing going out to dinner in it. It was fun, comfortable, and very flattering. The ruffles on the shirt helped conceal the mommy belly and the long white tank underneath added to the layered look I love. A jean jacket and boots were the perfect to make the look complete. I chose one of my favorite bags to pair it with, the Thirty-One Fashion Games, since there is a lot of room inside for all of the kids and my necessities.
