Mother’s Day is just around the corner! This Fatshion Friday, we salute the incredible moms out there. From in utero to adopted to blended families and even adult children loving their parents, we support mothers from all walks of life.
It’s incredibly easy to fall into fashion slumps. No matter how body-positive you can be toward other bodies, seeing your own body change in drastic ways can be hard to process (even if intellectually you find it to be beautiful). From the hormones to suddenly being thrust into a place where you are wholly responsible for the safety and happiness of a brand new human, it’s hard to navigate your own needs and wants.
A major component of being a strong new mother is finding one's voice and identity, separate from motherhood. A $300 hairstyle goes out the window in exchange for a ponytail or bun. A tube of Chanel lipstick becomes a stick of Burt’s Bees. That leather pencil skirt becomes a pair of yoga pants. And those heels? Byyyyyyeeeee. It’s hard to find a place that includes comfort and flexibility while still being chic.
