6 Signs You Need A Fashion Upgrade, Mom

You may not think your wardrobe needs a boost, but there are a few tell-tale signs that you do

We get it, you’ve been busy, but somebody has to tell you. What you’ve been passing off as your own personal style since becoming a mom—it’s no longer working for you. You may not be going out on the town or out anywhere fancy, but it’s nice to remember you are your own person, and dressing like you are might help you feel like it’s true.

You find yourself wondering if that My Little Pony shirt comes in your size.

It’s true, it’s cute, and kid clothes are basically mini adult clothes these days anyways. But if it’s in the children’s section, it’s there for a reason. And your interest in it might be more about lack of exposure to adult fashion these days.

You literally buy you and your kid matching items.

It happens, and sometimes a deal is a deal and just irresistible. I mean, if a grey hoodie in the smallest size fits your kid, and the largest size fits you—score, you’ve killed two birds with one stone. And then you’re out, and you both take off your hoodies, and you are wearing the same thing as a kindergartener. That’s why as appealing as the deal may be... you just shouldn't do it!

It’s just a little fruit punch.

Kids will be kids, which is why a bit of paint, grass, food or juice seeped into their clothes for eternity isn’t a big deal. But remember you’re the adult? Even if your kid caused the stain, if it looks like your shirt was used as a bib, you might want to change.

Your kid is more of a fashionista than you.

Maybe you’ve never been into clothes much, or maybe it’s just not your priority anymore—understandable. On the other hand, your kid needs clothes, and when you saw that teeny tiny leather jacket it basically jumped into your hands. You can feel that way about your own clothes too, balance it out a little.

You don’t remember the last time you wore two of the same socks.

Two of the same socks? You’re happy to be wearing two of the same shoes after baby brain has settled. But really, zero paired socks is a good indication that you’re not making space in your life to think about dressing yourself. Unless you’re a genius, and have many pairs of the same socks so you don’t have to worry about pairing them post-laundry.

You think about handing your things down when you buy them.

If the thought “and then in a decade my daughter can wear it” actively passes through your brain while considering a purchase, you have failed at thinking about yourself for a moment, yet again. Instead of thinking about where the clothing item will go next (or even thinking about who you’re dressing or for what occasion) acquire a few pieces that are truly for you. They don’t need to be extravagant, they just need to be yours.
