Ever since I had Ella, my personal style definitely took a back seat. I promised myself before I had kids that I would never become that mom that only wore sweats. Well I will eat my own words because that is my attire 90 % of the time. And I am ok with that. I do have to say that one of my resolutions for the New Year (not written down because I didn’t want the pressure) was to at least get ready every morning with either a 5 minute make-up routine and to stop wearing sweats for at least 50 % of the time. Ha! I admit that getting dressed, doing my hair, and painting my face has made me more confident and all around feel better. My goal is to round up easy mom attire that looks like you put a ton of effort in but didn’t. Cause c’mon I have to at least look like I belong with my kids who have a better wardrobe than me.
Braids are such great way to pull together a look and not only that it looks beautiful and keep hair out of my face. I had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Jenny from Confessions of a Hairstylist to do a Youtube tutorial on two ways to style a dutchbraid. I have also included the video at the bottom of the post so you can click and learn how to do this at home. I am completely obsessed and have been wearing my hair like this like every day.
