I don’t know about you, but picking out my outfit every day feels like a gigantic inconvenience, especially now that I’m a mom. I totally understand why so many mamas default to their signature easy, comfy leggings and t-shirt combo — we just don’t have the brain power to dedicate to fashion right now.
But I, personally, am not content to just give up and go for the easy way out. I want to look good, I want to feel good, and having a time/brain/emotion draining little human in tow is no excuse not to make it happen.
My solution for the last two years has been to shop. I buy more and more stuff, thinking that just this one new addition to my wardrobe will freshen everything up and motivate me to look the way I want to feel. But the reality is that now my closet is overflowing with clothes, and every morning, I’m still plagued with the eternal question: What do I wear?!??! (Followed immediately by: “I have nothing to wear!”)
