You are a woman of fashion, a woman who knows what shoes she wants and goes out and gets them. You’ve never been one to let anything get in between you and your Louis, no matter what your bank account has to say about it. Guess what? Having a baby doesn’t have to change this.

  1. OMG I have three – yes, THREE – little babies… This article is so super helpful. I can’t thank you enough… I’ve been so lazy, but this is inspiring me to put some effort in to my appearance again. 🙂

  2. Those are great mommy outfit options, everything (maybe except the heels) look super comfy. I think you just need to make the effort, and once you do, it’ll lift up your energy and brighten your day.
    A lot of my friends are to be mom’s, I would love to know great bra and basic garment options if you have any~

  3. God, I’m so scared to even think about being a mother! And that was before I thought about what it might do to my wardrobe, lol! I guess we all assume we’ll make the plunge into motherhood at some point. Although I see mother’s all the time that look so run down, I wonder if it’s worth it!? I guess if I ever meet the right guy, and we decide to have a family, I’ll have these useful tips to help keep my clothes safe from flying food and other stain makers hurling from my little one’s hands 🙂 It’s reassuring to know I won’t have to live in sweatpants either!!

  4. I know a lot of mom friends who kind of gave up their fashion sense after giving birth. But I also know a lot of other mom friends who actually upgraded their wardrobe after giving birth. Why do I say that they upgraded? Well, their diaper bags and their baby’s clothes were all designer! Nothing can definitely beat that 😀

  5. After giving birth, supportive bra made the difference for me. It made me more confident which helped bring out my best.

    I personally did not button up to the neck or wore high neck tops because I thought that’ll just make me look bulky. I opted for wearing V-necks, scoop necks or boat necks. I felt that V-necks particularly helped create a more vertical line to my body and diverted attention from any post-baby padding that has settled on my bottom half.

    Indeed, another great article from Urbanette 🙂

    It’s inevitable for a woman who just gave birth to feel that her “appearance is under scrutiny.” This is where “smart fashion choices” play an important role.

    Personally, I think, “black” is magical! Dark clothes create an illusion of smoothness that makes bulges and bumps simply recede into the fabric. A head-to-toe black dress makes body appear longer.

    Lively accessories like patterned or colorful scarf or stylish bag can make black dress / clothes very fashionable.
