Fashion Advice: FIND the time. (Someway, somehow…)

Have you ever looked at old photos of yourself and wondered… “Why, oh why, oh why!?”

Yeah, well – that was me this past weekend. Every year we put together a slideshow of photos for the boys’ birthday party. Even though they don’t “get” how special the photos are, we do. It’s amazing seeing William and Alexander as newborn babies and then as a little men first learning to walk and then taking their first bites of food and then turning into little boys. I will admit it, every year I get choked up – where did the time go? How are they that big?

Then… there’s me. And then there’s the “Why, oh why, oh why!?”

Essentially – this is the reason I started 365 Days of Fashion Advice for Moms. I completely lost my fashion self after I had my sons William and Alexander. And I figured, if someone like me – who lives, breathes and devours fashion loses herself – other moms must, too.

Let me give you a little insight…

    I feel your pain. I am at the height of fashion ickies brought on by having a 3 year old and 5 month old. I blame the lack of money. I get the cast offs from my 17 year old sister. Good lesson in humility … I guess… Sure…Ummm…

    I could not agree more. I make my next appointment while I am at the hair dresser and line up a sitter from my cell on the way home!

    I can totally relate! I remember when my son was 6 weeks old and I let my parents babysit for the first time, I took 2 hours getting dressed while drinking a glass of wine and listening to my ipod. It felt wonderful and made me remember what it was like to just be “me”.
