I have a love/hate relationship with getting *dressed* for the day.
I like putting on normal [read non-running clothes] so I feel better about myself but at the same time some days it REALLY take a ton of energy to do so.
If you aren’t a mom that statement will probably not make any sense to you.
There are a million and one things I need to get finished in a day. Most days something has to give and typically the first thing to go is caring what I look like.
I had this image of how life was going to be like as a stay at home. I imagined reading books during nap time. Waking up before the kids got up – getting dressed for the day in cute outfits and having play dates with my other mommy friends.
Let’s just say that NONE of that happens. I don’t get dressed cute [read clothing that makes me look like the mom rather than the babysitter]. Play dates rarely happen and I certainly DO NOT READ during nap time.
Most recently I’ve been trying to *get dressed* more to lift my self-esteem spirits [everyone has self esteem issues even those that act like they are perfect or full of confidence] and to STOP me from overeating. If you are wearing stretchy pants all day then it’s more likely you are going to eat more than if you were wearing tight jeans. [okay you don’t do this? Well I do.]
Aventura is this cute little clothing company that I’ve been liking lately. The clothing is comfortable – so I don’t feel like a stuffed sausage. I also feel more dressy then just walking around in my sweats.
I REALLY like hats and bought two Aventura ones on The Clymb and have been pretty much obsessed with them ever since. They are also perfect for hiding my – I didn’t bother to wash my hair post run because my not yet two year old was screaming in his crib at 6 am hair.
Once of the things I love about Aventura is that even though at first glance it might look like it’s for an older woman [yes I’m 30 – I get it that I’m old by some standards – but I feel young – don’t judge] there really are cute clothes for all ages. The fit is great and I may just never take off this Daphne Long Sleeve I’m wearing. It’s made with organic cotton so I feel good about wearing it too.
