I'm really enjoying Lauren's posts about "My Every Day" and this week she's talking about her Mom Uniform - or as some say "Momiform." I don't take myself too seriously when it comes to dressing every day, mostly because whatever I'm wearing is going to get something on it whether it's crumbs or paint or saliva or snot or a mixture of all of these, but I do think it's important to put a bit of thought into what we're wearing as moms who work at home because I think it helps us stay sane.
For example, I'm not big on yoga pants. I used to have a pair of lululemons, but I lost them and I don't miss them. I always found them frumpy and too wide at the bottom of my legs and I would constantly trip over them. I think you can get the same type of comfort with a pair of stretchy jeans.
I also like to have on a comfortable top, but something that's semi in style so I feel like I haven't fallen off the face of the earth when I leave the house (which happens most times anyway - especially when I venture off downtown or when I'm talking to Leo and he thinks I'm wearing pyjamas). Like Lauren, I love to wear flats in the spring and fall. I'm typically living in flip flops in the summer and my tall boots in the winter.
Anyway I'm certainly no fashionista by any stretch of the imagination; my point here is that the clothes you put on in the morning can be comfortable and semi-stylish and will help you get through the day.
How about you - what are you wearing these days while you're hanging out at home?
