Ok, so I’m technically (and every other way) not a mom. Yet. But sometimes I watch my little niece and nephews when their parents are working, and this past weekend we went to the park, pictured above here. It’s a nice place, right?
I’m always wondering how my style will change when I’m a breeder. I realize that my time will be at a premium, and that I may even need to *GASP* simplify. I don’t want to change my style though, so I think I might wear a lot of outfits like this one: comfortable, practical, with a little bit of flare. The plaid shoes add interest to an otherwise cute but kind of on the boring side outfit. I was able to lift little people onto the monkey bars, run to catch my almost 2 year old turbo nephew every few minutes when he’d take off into the wild, push them all on the swings…all while keeping warm and drinking coffee. So yes, I do believe I’ve found my wardrobe sweet spot for motherhood: now I just need some tiny people of my own to chase around!
Until then, I’m very happy being a fun aunt. I think it may be my favourite role thus far !
