Growing up I admired my mother’s style. That is not to say that her closet was not adorned with a few hidden gems that she had been holding onto since she was in her twenties including blazers with thick shoulder pads, silk neck ties with elaborate prints and argyle sweaters in mint condition. All in all my mother always took pride in her appearance, trying to stay up with the latest trends while blending in some of her out touches and flare from her 70’s and 80’s phases.
As I have grown older I hear her more and more mention how clothes are just too young for her. I get more calls from her telling me she has shipped me another box of clothes that she feels she has “out grown” than I could have imagined as a little girl (who often times tried to borrow these clothes but always somehow getting caught in the act). Her fear of looking “too young” and “not dressing her age” lead me to some investigation. With social media being on an up and up, more and more mothers of all ages, are creating lifestyle blogs. These blogs do not just include activities to do with your children and clean eating habits, they also focus on clothing and keeping a sense of style that is true to you even with a toddler on your hip.
Here are some of my favorite mother lifestyle blogs that will help to inspire everyday women and mothers even on the most difficult and hectic of days.
