My Mommy Uniform

I think as mom it is typical to find what works for you and stick with it. I like to refer to it as my “Doug Funny” look but I’m never sure if anybody actually gets the reference. But let’s face it, the mornings are busy and time gets away from us. My kids look like little models every day but me, I’m just winging it.

At the bare minimum I wont leave the house without a clean outfit, mascara and lip balm. If you catch me without those three things then I highly suggest moving right along (it must be a bad day that’s not worth talking about, if you get what I mean!)

Another life saver as a mom is dry shampoo. I like to say I go days between washing my hair because it’s the healthy thing to do but really I just didn’t have time to shower. I always keep my Coco Lavish dry shampoo in my bag for the times where I am creeping past my “I really should have washed my hair today” threshold. It works wonders and I am totally obsessed!

I swear by yoga pants but I feel more human if I throw on some jeans, a fun graphic tee and a few accessories. It’s worth the extra few minutes to not look like a total homeless person walking through target. THIS shirt by WeeStructed couldn’t ring more true to all the mamas out there and it’s definitely a current favorite of mine!

My typical pose is baby on one hip while chasing the two year old with my free hand, so a teething necklace is a fun accessory for the busy moms. My littlest always has something to chew on which helps keep her happy on my hip. Baby Bees and Peonies has some great ones  (like this one pictured here-the Tiponi necklace) in her shop!

Lastly if you’re a nursing mom then do yourself a favor and head over to Get Nurselet and grab THIS amazing new product of theirs. A handsfree solution to securing your shirt while breastfeeding. I prefer using a nursing cover in public (my favorite are by the wonderful Bebe au Lait found HERE) and these NursElet bracelets are a life saver because I don’t have to mess around under the cover to keep my shirt in place. These two products are the perfect match for a nursing mother on the go!

What are your go to must haves as a busy mom on the run? I’d love to hear! Leave them below.

They say children don’t allow you to be lazy and I couldn’t agree more! I love my family, decorating, being a total mamarazzi, shopping small, and writing. Here you will find everyday KIDspiration from kids play spaces to room décor, mom life and more. For more about this blog and me hit the “about me section” and keep reading!

    • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
    • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
    • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
    • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
    • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
    • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
