I’m 30 with a 5 year old dd. Before I had her I always had the latest designer clothes on, wouldn’t leave the house without a full face of makeup even if I was just popping to the shop. I know I’m 5 years older now but I rarely wear makeup, live in jeans, jumpers and uggs and never buy new clothes. I feel like I get funny looks on the school run thinking here she comes again because I don’t start work until 11 so I usually just chuck on anything to take dd to school then go home and get ready for work, sometimes the same jumper days in a row (I’m not going to wash it if I only wear it for an hour each morning) anyone else?
Not really. Then again, I gave up on fashion and style at age 16 and never looked back. I did wear more tie-dye when my kids were babies after I discovered that you generally can't see dried spit-up stains on tie-dye shirts.
I never really followed fashion, I just like what I like, but my style didn't really change, I still wear most of my pre pregnancy clothes, from before my DS (6 months). I have however purchased one of them regatta coats for practical reasons with a hood and its waterproof, we call it the mummy coat lol. I still wear my 4" heels but that will never change as I am only tiny and they are comfy for me as I have worn them that high since I was about 17.
My style has changed but actually for the better IMO. I used to wear jeans and tops most days. Now I wear dresses or long tops every day either with tights or leggings (all my dresses and tops cover my bum, a lot being just above knee length) and I wear them with quite high yet chunky heeled ankle boots or flat boots that finish just under the knee. I always have a full face of make-up for day unless I'm staying in. I so my hair each day also but that doesn't take long to do. I either have it down and straightened with some clipped back (grabby baby!) Or I have it up in a messy bun with a chunky claw clip.
I weigh more than I did before having kids, I'm working on that but for me looking good helps me to feel good. My kids are 5, 3 and almost 1
