Lavinia and I have been back from the USA for exactly one week. I’m both happy and bummed to report that we are already back in our routine.
Returning home from America gave me a little extra pep, confidence and a few new items for my wardrobe (what better reason to get out and about than a new outfit?) I wanted to make it a point to explore the city of Melbourne more. Two days in- and we did just that! Straight into town to meet a friend for coffee.
Somehow I'm in my Mommy uniform again (uuuuggggghhh) and I need to fix the situation.
|Mommy- let's put some clothes on and get amongst it.|
I'm no longer struggling but I've sure gotten lazy with my fashion- which sounds superficial but it's not. I believe the way we dress not only expresses how we feel about ourselves but also how we want the world to perceive us. And those two things are important.
In the early post natal months I was limited with clothing because of nursing, then in the months following I was working to shed baby-weight. Recently I realised that my old wardrobe does not necessarily represent me anymore. I don’t have to worry about looking 'corporate' or 'adult' I don't have much of a nightlife...I just want to look like me- so I am trying to figure that out how to do that.
|Rock'n'Roll Mama (oooouuuuuch!)|
So what the hell am I still doing in my sweatpants? I don’t know, but I’m going to change that before it’s time to pick up Lavinia.
|A little effort goes a long way.|
