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.

    • The girls haven’t put down their “Cubbles the Bear” Cozy Dozys toy since they arrived and I have to say, I think they’re pretty darn cute too! #ad These are the newest addition to the @moose_toys #littlelive collection and they’re available now at Target! These bears are so lifelike and have the softest plush fur that make them perfect for all the cuddles. Even better, they come to life as you play with them so my girls have really gotten attached to them ever since! #CozyDozys

    • Today was a BIG day for our Lo 🎉 She graduated Peanut Oral Immunotherapy and is officially in maintenance 🥜😱 Her maintenance requires her eating 3 peanuts a day (her “dose”) and observing a quiet period (which we do first thing in the morning to get it over with!) then we will have her numbers retested in 6 months to see where they’re at. We can go on to challenge her tolerance from there! We may take her up to a maintenance dose of 8 peanuts as well depending on her numbers at that point which could clear her for free eating. Stay tuned! Either way as of now she is officially safe from accidental exposure or ingestion which is huge! This journey has been incredible. If any of you were around last summer when we ended up in the ER with her for a full blown anaphylactic reaction to a cross contaminated cupcake then you know how incredible her reaching this milestone is! She’s a tough one. This hasn’t been easy and it took a lot of patience and perseverance from her, which is a lot to ask of a 4 year old. When the Doctor gave her the certificate of completion her face lit up with joy! I loved seeing that 😊. Next up, Joie! She has 2 more “up-dose” appointments until she graduates from egg and peanut OIT! Wish us luck!! This mama will be happy to be done with the 3hr round trip drives each week to these appointments as well 👏🏼 #oitworks #oit #peanutallergy
    • First work, now play 🏰 Although play is still a lot of work 😅 Swipe to see what Disney with 4 little’s looks like! We did it hard today but the kids had the best time all in all (Bradley was not a fan of the fireworks which had to blast off right before we took this picture- ha!) Gosh I love this crew!✨ #sponsored #disneysmc #nowmorethanever
    • So about yesterday! It was an absolute dream to get to attend the Disney Social Media Celebration “On The Road” at @waltdisneyworld ✨ I got to share a room with SO many talented creatives. Some I have “known” for years on Instagram but have never actually met until then. It has always been a dream of mine to work with Disney and getting to partner with them on a continuous basis like this never stops amazing me! A dream come true 🏰 So never stop wishing upon a star ladies/gents because hard work and determination DO pay off! ALSO- any Star Wars fans here? We got to be some of the first to tour the Galaxy Edge in Orlando and let’s just say it was pretty out of this world spectacular 🌌 #punintended // #disneysmc #nowmorethanever #sponsored
    • Goofy called me to coordinate outfits for today so I obvi said yes ✨ #sponsored #disneysmc #nowmorethanever
