I like style. I've always been a sucker for the latest trends in fashion. Once I became a mom I vowed to never look like a "mom". You know the classic one from the 90's, with those flat butt mom jeans and crocheted sweaters... which of course looking back I could see how maybe they were in style. However, I have refused to shop in the "mom" section and have stayed determined to keep wearing my Forever 21 outfits, even though I'm way beyond 21.
The biggest problem I have had is maternity clothes. It's the worst. First off, why do they assume that now that you are pregnant all you want to wear is stripes and floral? It's like the maternity industry said, "Alright, it's time to be a mom, so here is a bunch of ugly outdated clothes. Oh and we will charge you 100 times more for it too, because you don't have a choice."
They not only have outdated and fashion less stuff, if you do find the cute clothes, it's outrageous in price! And your only going to be wearing it for a few months. So, I've decided to help all you trendy mommas out. I'll be starting a fashion blog and posting regularly some great ideas for inexpensive trendy outfits. And if you have secret places you get your clothes, please share!
In this weeks outfit, I took to the streets of downtown Nashville. One thing about downtown Nashville, every one is trendy. If you are going to be stepping foot in any coffee shot, be prepared to see a group of trendy hipsters/fashionistas. Even their workout/lounge clothes looks out of a magazine. I like to think I fit right in, even with my growing belly.
I also recently got my hair cut into the Lob, which is the modern day Bob. It has more of an edgy feel to the classic haircut. And although I'm letting my hair grow out from my previous pixie cut, I figured I'd still like it to have some shape and fun to it.
My trip downtown was perfect with this amazing Cinnamon Honey Latte by Revelator Coffee. If you are near by this is a must stop. All in all it was a great day to explore the city. Falling more in love with Nashville every day.
