i’m feeling especially reflective this year, thanks in large part to all of the drastic changes that happened in my life in 2014. the biggest, most obvious being that i became a mother in january, and when it came to my wardrobe, i basically had to re-learn how to get dressed in the morning. looking back, i can remember those early days when adam was born, when i would rush to the bathroom and scramble to get the knots out of my hair and splash some water on my face before attempting to squeeze into an old pair of jeans that were too tight for my swollen body. back then, it felt like i would never be able to get ready in the morning again! but i’ve since learned how to streamline my routine with a quick and easy beauty regimen and a very simplified wardrobe.
i had no idea that having a baby would change my style so drastically, but i’m pretty happy that it did. i was getting bored with my old favorites. the super mini ’60s dresses and twee little collars were fun, but i’ve never really stuck to any one style for very long and i was way overdue for a change. now i feel much more comfortable and confident in a simple wardrobe with lots of neutral colors, wash and wear fabrics, and varied silhouettes. i’ve learned a lot about what makes sense for my lifestyle, and i’m pretty excited about all of the looks i have planned moving into 2015. so here’s to another year of ever-evolving style!
