Do you have a uniform? You know, the one outfit in your wardrobe that you wear, like, all the time? Like you can't clean it fast enough so that you can repeat its use every day?
I, obviously, do. For me, it's black lycra, bootcut workout pants, a white tanktop (or black depending on what's clean), and a white maternity hoodie. Yes, you read that right: maternity. I just heart this hoodie so much because it is long enough to disguise the area around my midsection that is a wee bit stretched out from bearing a child for nine months. I make no apologies. I wish they made all tops longer. There is nothing worse than a top that rides up, exposing your midsection. Way too 90210 for me. I digress.
I can be seen in this outfit e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. Lounging around the house, running errands, meeting friends for coffee, etc. It's perfect because it's cute and comfortable and still permits me to nurse with ease no matter where I may be. This is crucial to an outfit being successful in my book. Buttons are too complicated, nursing tops are terribly unfashionable, and turtlenecks are too turtle-y. And dresses certainly don't lend themselves to feeding Baby B unless I want to completely undress, in which case I would likely be thrown out of Starbucks for indecent exposure.
And you don't have to be a mom to where a uniform either. In college I totally rocked out the sweatpants and sorority tees for four straight years. I was at a complete loss when it suddenly became weird to be seen in a top advertising a formal from SIX YEARS AGO. Sigh. I'm getting old.
So tell me, and let's be honest - how many of you can relate - mom or not?
