4 tweaks I do to my momiform on days I’m feeling like a total failure

Do you know those days where you feel like a total failure? Days that by 9am you’re already begging for bedtime to come SOON?

I have those days pretty often. My house is a mess. The baby is crying while the toddler is telling me to “watch him” or play with him again. I need to feed the kids and myself too or else how am I going to produce milk? There’s a pile of dishes and laundry waiting. My inbox can’t contain one more email and I’m so behind all the blog work I have to do.

Sometimes I don’t even get to shower or go past my yoga pants. However others I do, especially when what I need is to get myself and the kids out of the house to breathe a little. So, on the days I do I’ve noticed I style my outfits in a different way in order to lift up my spirits and feel more like a super mom instead than a failure.
This pic summarizes the four tweaks I do to my momiform on crazy days. Now next time you see me all “put together” means that it was a messy, crazy day.

1. I switch the t-shirt for a more put together top like an sleeveless button down and do a half tuck. Believe me that tuck does wonders. I do the same in the colder months with a sleeved button down.

2. I add a cute accessory like a belt. I love belts specially when half-tucking, but other times I do a nice necklace.

3. Cute shoes! Always. I think I’m getting obsessed with silver in shoes. I was very skeptical about the metallic shoe trend but after giving it a try with these silver knotted slides, I’m obsessed. Now I’m trying to decide between silver sneakers and boots for fall.

4. Lipstick! And I’ll usually go for a bright color because is an instant mood lifter.

Do you do anything different to your outfits on crazy days? (That is if you get to get dressed)



Top – AX

Shorts – Zara (old)

Belt – Asos

Shoes – Asos If between sizes size up. If you follow on Instagram I got some pretty white knotted slides in a buttery soft leather. These may not be buttery soft but they are leather and comfortable. Moreover they are great to try out the silver shoe trend, which in my opinion is amazing. I loved the special twist it gives to my outfits.

Bag – Vince Camuto (similar in same brand)
