Fashion Advice From: A New Mom

New Mom and BabyI recently met up with Karen, 31, and her newborn, Alexander, to talk about how fashion changes once you have a baby.

What are your fashion inspirations?
I tend to go for softer colors, and kinda girly-things. If I had to credit an inspiration, I’d say my big sis.

What trends are you loving right now?
(laughs) I haven’t really been able to keep up, to tell you the truth. I hear prints are going to be big, so that’s fun. Really though? I’m just looking forward to fitting into my skinny jeans again…Hopefully.

What changes with regard to fashion when you have a baby?
Wow. Everything? For myself, I think much more practically. In anticipation of spit-up, I know always carry a cardigan to cover up with when I’m out. I think your fashion sense gets noticeably dumbed down and simplified – out of necessity.

What about jewelry? What changes there?
Well, since my clothes have gotten a little more dull, I’m now more conscious of trying to add in a nice piece of jewelry to add a little more personality to an outfit. But no more dangle earrings, let me tell you. That’s a prime baby-pulling hazard.

What’s your best fashion advice for other new moms out there?
Don’t sweat it. Be comfortable. This stage will pass.

So if you could get any piece of jewelry for mothers day, what would it be?
Diamond earrings. Studs. For sure, a beautiful pair of diamond studs. I think I’ve earned em.
