personal style is pretty classic with a little bit of “what was she
thinking” thrown in for good measure. Since moving to Hawaii and
becoming a mom, my style has become a LOT more laid back. I really like
to wear dresses and skirts, but it’s weird to that in Hawaii–most
people just wear shorts, a t-shirt and “slippers” (flip flops). I tried
to keep wearing dresses, etc during my pregnancy, but now that I’m
nursing, I mainly just wear shorts and v-neck t-shirts.

favorite place to have an unlimited shopping spree would probably be
J.Crew, but the real J.Crew not the “resort wear” one here on Oahu–not
my style AT.ALL.
becoming a mom, I wear a lot of v-neck and scoop neck t-shirts so I can
nurse Evie easily. I also wear flats…a lot. 🙁 I’m hoping that once
Evie is weaned (that could be a while) that I can wear my old dresses
(not nursing friendly) again. I still try to wear those on date nights
with Ken, but we only get those about once a month when family comes to
5. What advice would you give other moms on fashion?
advice I would give other moms on fashion is to give yourself a little
grace (as with everything regarding motherhood). The
newborn/infant/toddler stages are just a short season of life and you’ll
be back to your old self before you know it. I know that’s what I tell
myself as I look fondly at all my dresses! Also, don’t be afraid of the
everyday ponytail or the sock bun–my new best friends. 😉
6. Where does your fashion inspiration come from?
fashion inspiration comes from a lot of bloggers (not necessarily
fashion bloggers, but mom bloggers too!). I like Jessica Quirk of What I
Wore, Kendi Skeen of Kendi Everyday, Jen Lula of Jen Loves Kev, Grace
Patton of Camp Patton, and Rachel got me started on Stitch Fix which is
helping me find some items for my new mom life.
