Hot momma date night alert! As moms it is easy to get into a rut, but you have to break out of the jeans and t-shirt routine and add a little seeexxxxyyy. Let's face facts - how we dress plays a big role in how we feel about ourselves, and for me I was a little uncomfortable being sexy after my first baby (now I have two!). I was tired. My hormones were shot. I generally felt like I had been hit by an overwhelming bus of things to do each day. But that doesn't bode well for a romantic relationship. Feeling beautiful and desirable is NECESSARY to maintain the romantic fires at home and just for your own confidence.
I loved this dress as soon as I laid eyes on it! Bell sleeves give that boho vibe while the lace-up top said heyyyyyyy.
I like hitting up Forever 21 or Target or similar easy-on-the-wallet stores for my trendier pieces. They aren't too pricey and always have what's hot. Don't be afraid to shop alongside of teenagers and don't be afraid to break out of your "usual"! I get that sometimes we have limited funds and want to only invest in pieces that we will get long term wear out of, but a few fun pieces that you don't have to worry about discarding after the sun has set on their trendy ways is kind of freeing. Also, it's important to dress for your body type and what flatters you. I'm a shorty, so shorter hemlines help give me a little leg show. ;-) I will post more about body type styling in an upcoming post.
And the look when your S.O. sees you in something a little less...routine....is GOLD!
I've linked this dress from Forever 21 here. It's on sale for $17!!
