My husband delights in telling me when my attire isn't exactly... hip.
Sure, sometimes I want to look less Mommish and more like a person who is 28 years old... but it's kinda hard to get away from the Mom look when you've got a 28 month old child clinging to your hip.
Of course, I retort to him that I am a Mom, so I look like a Mom... and then immediately follow it up by flicking him off or sticking my tongue out at him.
And you know what, it's HARD not to dress like a Mom because Mom's can wear comfy shorts or t-shirts that are buttery soft.
A 28 year old woman tends to wear trendy pieces that require Crisco and fishing line to complete the outfit.
And I am so not trendy.
Far from it.
Especially now that I'm pregnant and my stomach has started to push out. I stand before my closet eyeing my board shorts and tank tops with envy thinking: Why is this outfit unacceptable? Or those adidas shorts I wear only to the gym, why can't I zip up to the store in them? And big comfy t-shirts snagged from my hubby's closet, oh so lovable, but not very flattering.
Why can't I find a comfy maternity line that doesn't make me feel like a balloon and one that I can afford?
Any help here?
