Style and me? They just don’t mix. I’m not sure that they have never mixed. I always seemed to be just a little behind the trends. The summer before high school my Grandmother brought me shopping to pick out new clothes. I picked out about 3 different sweater vests. And wore them to school. Sweater vests, people. I actually wore it for my Freshman picture. And no, I’m not sharing. I won’t subject you to that!
So when I found out that Moms Fashion File were going to give away a Style Session at BlogHer this year, I knew I had to submit a post about my desperation.
I’m lucky if I get out of my pajamas/workout pants during the day. And yeah, I don’t work out on a regular basis. Most days my toddler and I don’t go anywhere, so I think, why dress up? But I need to! I know it will make me feel like more of a person again.
I don’t wear makeup. I’m not even sure if I can. I just found out that I have rosacea. My skin is also always very dry so even with a massive amount of moisturizer the makeup on my face looks like it is peeling. An attractive picture, huh? When I recently was on television I can’t even begin to tell you how much the makeup artist commented on my skin! :-0
My hair? I mostly keep it back in a ponytail. I tell my husband and myself it’s because I have a toddler and I don’t want it getting yanked on. But truthfully? I just don’t know what to do with it. Every time I go to get it cut or styled I tell the hair dresser that my hair just hangs there. That I want life and volume to my hair. And they always tell me they understand. But it just never works out. So I end up visiting a different hair stylist every month in the hopes that I’ll find one that I’ll fall in love with.
So here’s a picture of my normal style. Jeans, shirt, cardigan. How much more Mom can you get?
Help me Moms Fashion File!
Wish me luck!
