I have a confession – I think way too much about if my outfit for the day is appropriate for being a mom. Finn is at the age of wanting to be up and then down again, and I spend the majority of my time bending over or sitting on the ground with him. I started transitioning my clothing out of the ‘short-shorts’ genre soon after I graduated college and hit the professional world. However, being a mom is a whole new ball game.
When I bought my first midi-skirt soon after Finn was born, I bought it more for the flow and its ability to hide the baby weight. But I soon fell in the love with the length and my love for midi-skirts/dresses was born. At one point I thought my legs were too short for the midi-length, but it actually makes me look (or at least feel as though I look) taller.
The best part? I can bend over and not give everyone else at the playground a show! This midi-dress is from Abercrombie & Fitch, cause apparently they are making a comeback?! Who knew. I really can’t complain. This dress is the perfect length, under $30 and is super comfortable and soft. It will also make a perfect maternity dress for the next go-round since it’s long enough and stretchy enough to grow with a bump.
I’ve linked some more midi-dresses below since they are the perfect transitional piece into fall. Add a long cardigan and some booties, you’ve got yourself a Pinterest-worthy outfit. (PS. Shameless plug, if you don’t follow me on Pinterest yet, you totally should. I pin some awesome crap and we all know it’s the best way to waste an hour – or a morning.) Happy shopping, moms!
