It’s been for quite some time here on ALFS that I wanted to incorporate fashion a bit, yet I just never could find the right way to do it. I wanted to keep it primarily a food blog, but throw in some fun outfit ideas here and there. Thanks to the Pleated Poppy for getting my mind churning a bit. I think I finally found a great way to work it in – woohoo!
Look, if you’re a mom – you get it. Most days I attempt to get myself dressed and ready to go and within 10 minutes something is spilled on me. I constantly have soaking wet shoulders from drool and there are countless times I’ve sat in some unknown substance. I can’t tell you how many times ‘why do I even bother?’ goes through my head as I’m attempting to clean myself with B’s wipes.
Yet it does make a difference. Throwing on something with a bit of thought in it even though the yoga pants are sooooo much easier just, well, matters. For you, for your significant other, and for your bebe! Believe me they pick up on everything and taking care of yourself is a wonderful example, for them. So here is my challenge to YOU. I’m teaming up with Toronto Mama – have you seen her blog? I highly recommend it. Crafts, food, fashion – this mama has it going on! Together we want to get us moms OUT of the black yoga pants! Here’s how it’s going to work:
Every Wednesday Pleated Poppy has a gig going called ‘What I wore Wednesdays.’ She showcases her outfits throughout the week in various photographs. Cute, right? Well, we are going to change it up a bit and go with ‘What WE wore Wednesdays.’ We want to see pictures of all you moms (or moms to be) and your little(s). So fun to show them off!
Here is how it’s going to work:
Take a photograph sometime during the week. It doesn’t have to be on Wednesday, as my dear VA assistant patiently explained to me. This gives you a ton of flexibility and time! Just one picture. You and your bebe(s). You can so do this! And it doesn’t have to be fancy, promise. All styles are welcome.
On Wednesday, check back in here at ALFS and/or Toronto Mama. We’d love for you to visit both! I will post what the boys and I wore and if you have your own blog you can link it and share with us what you wore. You only have to post on one of our blogs and you’ll show up on both as we have them linked together. Fun, right?
If you don’t have a blog I still so want to see you and your little(s) so head on over to my FB page and/or Toronto Mama’s FB page and we are going to be checking in weekly every Wednesday. You can show off your photograph there! We are even going to create an album titled ‘what we wore Wednesdays’ that you will be placed in.
I think this will be a great change up here on ALFS and will give us fun new style ideas for each other and our best little accessory.
Happy shopping my friends – Hint, J Crew has 30% off all swim styles right now!
