Welcome to another edition of Real Moms, Real Fashion! Real Moms, Real Fashion showcases different moms and their unique sense of style! This week I interviewed Colleen who has two adorable little girls and is also one of my “real life” friends from college! Colleen blogs about parenting over at Naturally Crafty Mom.
1. How do you define your style?
is hot most of the year so shorts and a cute top. For work I like
really girly so I wear dresses a lot. I have had to change how I dress
after having kids because my body has changed so much with having 2 kids
in such a short period of time.
of great cloths for both work and casual. I find that I have a hard
time giong on a shopping spree because I can only find one or two things
that I like at a time but my favorite stores are Banana Republic, Loft,

body has changed a lot (some parts smaller and some parts larger) so I
have had to accommodate that. I also think I am more conservative in how
I dress but at the same time I try to keep up with the fashions. I am
always going for that “wow, she’s looks great for a mom of two” look and

you reach a certain size. Even with all of the weight lost a lot of

husband! Sounds strange but he has great taste :). I run pretty much
everything by him because he knows what looks good on me and what works
for our lifestyle. He also lets me have as many pairs of shoes as I
want, so I know he is a keeper.
Fashion is a special feature where I interview moms about their unique
sense of style. Gone are the days of the “mom jean,” moms today have
real style so let’s show it off! You do not have to be a blogger to
participate! Are you interested in being feature on Real Moms, Real
Fashion? I would love to interview you! Just let me know!
