Hello readers! This is Alexa from The Short and the Sweet of It. I’m so happy to be guesting on Sarah’s blog today about *trying* to keep fashionable as a new mom. Huge confession here: I am usually in work out pants, a tank top and tennis shoes, so don’t be fooled. But anyhow, here are some snapshots of my favorite outfit for fall.
I am loving rust colored cords this fall. And I think they really complement my dark hair. It is questionable that I paired it with a white sweater (being a mom usually means that you have some form of spit up or mashed peas on your clothing). However, it helps lighten up the look. You could also go for a camel colored sweater where stains might not be as blatantly obvious.
Or you could just grab a black blazer, a camel colored scarf and dark glasses, so no one at the supermarket knows who the girl with the multiple stain marks on her shirt really is.
Flats are key. Easy to slip on and off and they reduce the risk of stumbling while holding baby or trying to control a usually out-of-control dog on the leash.
Then you just go into the yard and play with your baby looking more stylish than ever. Until baby drools on your face, scarf and shirt and you change back into those beloved sweats and over-sized t-shirt.
Thank you so much Sarah for hosting me on your blog, it’s been lovely.
My cords are from Levi’s. My sweater was a gift. The blazer was a hand-me-down from my best friend (score!) My scarf is from Italy and my shoes are from Target (they no longer have the same ones, but these are pretty adorable too).
