Tell us about your style as a new mom!

Well, since I am a momma now, I figured I would adopt into my wardrobe some “mom” jeans! You know, the really high-waisted ones convenient for not exposing your backside while constantly bending over and playing with your little one. And I must say, they are really comfortable and do help keep everything in place! A must-have for sure.
My only rule of thumb is that I try to stick to comfort and the practicalities of being a mom. I like to have fun with my clothes and dress in what speaks to me. There are all sorts of different styles out there, and I say don’t fret about what’s cool or hip at the moment. Wear what you like and feel good in, and own it!

What kind of fashion advice do you have for postpartum, in-between sizes new moms?

First and foremost, be proud of your body! You just created a beautiful human being inside of you, definitely not the easiest thing on your body. I say take it easy and just enjoy the time with your little one. However, leggings and over-sized tops are a great go-to. 🙂

Have you splurged on any item in your postpartum wardrobe?

Chacos. They are incredibly comfortable, easy to slip on and off and are perfect for any terrain. Whether it’s a walk down the street, strolling through the park, taking a day hike in the foothills, or running to the grocery store. Comfort. Comfort. Comfort.

Tell us more about that fabulous lipstick you are wearing. What are your favorite lipsticks?

Since I now have Shepard and love to give him a million kisses a day, I usually like to avoid lip gloss and go for lip stains. That way I can give Shepard kisses without leaving sticky lipstick all over his yummy cheeks! The lipstick I am wearing is Revlon ColorStay, Perennial Plum.

favorite shoe: chacos
favorite place to vacation: the mountains
one item in your makeup bag you can’t live without: lipstick. If you don’t have time or are just too tired to put any make-up on, simply slip on some lipstick and you instantly look glamorous. 🙂
color or black and white: all of the above.


What are a brands of jeans do you suggest that are high waisted, and within a reasonable budget? I’ve had some luck with Old Navy but their stretch wears out quickly. I have wider hips and short legs, but not a petite torso so jeans are always a challenge for me.

Hi Jane! Great question. I’ve had success with Urban’s BDG line of high waisted jeans that are in the $40-$50 range. GAP is in a similar price range too and I’ve liked a pair of high waisted jeans from there as well. Also, I have a ton of luck at consignment stores for jeans that might be too expensive to buy full price!
