Hot Momma Fashion

I have to say, I never thought this girl would be writing a fashion blog post. Seriously... when my go-to uniform always starts with a white t-shirt, I'm probably not the girl you want to take fashion advice from! But there were so many of you who connected with me through this post, I had to follow up.

For my New Years resolution this year, I vowed to stop dressing lazily and start dressing with steez. Otherwise known as style, for those of you who don't speak Michelle-talk. When I shared my resolution here on Ten June, a lot of you shared with me that you were also promising yourself to dress nicer in the new year. Fun stuff! Y'all also asked that I share some outfit ideas here on the ol' blog. I guess I'm a people pleaser, because ye ask... ye shall receive!

Today, I'm sharing a couple of fun tips I've learned over the last few weeks as I try to step my fashion game up both in work fashion and my casual fashion.

Casual fashion tip: colorful pants

It's time to break out the colorful pants, peeps! Even with my favorite white tee, colorful skinny jeans make any outfit hip. Although now I'm not hip because I said "hip." Dang. I need to learn some new words.




Green jeans, yellow jeans... they're all so fun and versatile! Oh, and for those of you who asked about nursing fashion, I love wearing button up tops (like the chambray top I paired with the yellow skinnies above) in public. They are so easy!

Workplace fashion tip: funky accessories

If you're like me, you work in a conservative field where there isn't much of a place for funky clothing. So my tip? Bring in the funky in small doses, with fun accessories.

Here I paired a conservative blazer and stud earrings with a double layer of necklaces- a gold collar necklace and a little H, which is the necklace David gave me to celebrate my first mother's day when I was preggo with H. I'm not gonna lie, I kind of felt like a gangsta with all those chains on.


Here, I spiced up my basic black shift dress and flats with this pair of chevron tights from LOFT. Boom.


For the record, tights and dresses are awkward when it comes to nursing. Or pumping at work. I learned that one the hard way. #truestory

Again, I'm certainly no fashionista and I'm not claiming to be! But so many of you asked that I share what I'm wearing as I navigate this new-mom-fashion-world, so here ya go. These are my outfits this week!

Got any fun fashion tips for me this week!?

Happy Friday, friends!

  2. I think you look cute!! I don't have any colored jeans. I held off...because they reminded me of 1992, but they have some cute ones now. Love the chevron tights too. :)

    1. Hey Meggie! I've had that top forever... I think I found it on clearance at Kohl's a few years ago. Sorry I can't be of more help!

  8. Really enjoying your blog.. Wanted to tell you, as a mom of three, last January I felt the exact same way and did the Kendi Everyday 30 X 30 challenge and loved it.. Forced me to really think about the clothes I already have and learn to be creative without spending any money.. It was so fun and changed my entire year fashion wise.. Just a suggestion

  12. Love those brightly colored jeans! I have a pair of teal ones and they definitely brighten up any day. I also love adding scarves to outfits. Nobody notices that you have 4 (yes four) long sleeve navy blue t-shirts when you pair them with different scarves!

    PS I promise I have other shirts too, I just really like navy this season...

  13. I'm totally with you on the brightly colored pants. I wear them all the time, and I am actually on the lookout for some emerald ones. I have some bright gold, eggplant like purple, and a royal blue pair and I wear all of them all the time. I'm loving the tights! I have a couple of plain comfy dresses that I am always trying to spice up. What a great idea! Thanks!!

  15. You are rocking the colored denim. I just don't know if I can pull it off. And I am totally with you about work attire. I find that simple classic clothes paired with more funky accessories is the best bet for my bs get and style. I'm a huge fan of funky necklaces and earrings and scarves. And tights. I actually have a much easier time feeling more 'stylish' at work than on weekends. Casual dress is not my forte and I hate to spend too much on things I rarely wear. But the button up tip is a good one. And I think I ought to invest in a few pieces to snazz it up.

  16. Hot mama is right! Looking good miss thang! Chambray button-ups are a lifesaver when it comes to nursing:-) xoxo
