After becoming a parent, understandably your focus shifts from yourself to your new-born baby. Children need a lot of care, love, and attention, especially when they are small. It’s very easy for us to become wrapped up in looking after our children and forget about looking after ourselves.
It’s important to remember to take time for yourself. Being constantly with a young child can be tiring, combine that with constant interruptions, lack of sleep and your body recovering from pregnancy and birth, it’s no surprise that lots of moms end up burning out. Everyone needs and deserves a break and there’s no shame in that.
The way we dress can have a huge impact on how we feel. This is because appearance is linked to self- confidence, and personality. However, we can easily forget about style and fashion when we’re busy looking after little ones. While you may not be able to purchase a new closet full of clothes every month, there are many ways in which you can continue looking stylish – even after having a baby.
Becoming a parent doesn’t stop you from showing off your personality in the way you dress. Some items of clothing may no longer be practical, but don’t throw them out forever. As your baby gets older, you may find you are able to wear some of these items again. But for now, you could consider simply incorporating your favourite colour into your outfit. As they grow, you can also start adding additional pieces like jewellery into your outfits. Bags are another great way to add personality and they come in all shapes, sizes, and colours. Saint Laurent bags are beautifully designed to fit your every need. Make sure you visit SSENSE.com to look at the stunning range they have available.
Revamp Your Wardrobe
Running around after children can put a huge strain on your clothes. If you’re looking for something nice to wear, but all of your clothes are frayed or stained, then now might be the time to consider revamping your wardrobe. Donate your old, unworn items to charity, keep capsule items (white shirts, t-shirts, jeans, black trousers) that can easily be worn in different ways and invest in some key items that will help to make you feel and look great.
The Finishing Touch
Although we’ve already talked about using accessories to add personality to our style, there are many other examples of how we can add an instant boost to our self-esteem without it costing too much money. One example to boost our confidence is to go for a haircut. Although this might sound obvious, having our hair cut and styled can improve our confidence no end. Why not think about looking for a more manageable style, which will not only look good but will also save you time getting ready in the morning?
Looking stylish is important to most of us and having a baby doesn’t change this. When you look stylish you automatically feel more confident and have higher self-esteem. There is a direct link between the way in which you see yourself and your choice of clothing, so why not start feeling great again in the outfits that suit your personality and one that you choose to wear?
