My Mommy Outfit
Mr. MPB recently came home and declared:
You wear the mommy outfit!
Umm…yes honey, I do. But if anything, I’ve taken it a step down from most mom’s.
You mean, you know about the mommy outfit?
Yup. My mummy outfit consists of leggings, t-shirt and hoodie, matched with flat shoes (or slippers if I’m at home). In the summer there are 2 slight variations – sandals, not shoes and short/capri leggings. And maybe once a month, I dress up an put on real jeans. Even most of my work clothing now consists of outfits I can partner with flat shoes. Honestly, I think in 2017 I can count the times I’ve worn heels on my fingers, possibly even on one hand.
But, I’ve taken it a step down, because I work from home so there are truly days where I don’t get out of my pajama’s (But I always shower, we have a rule about that in the MPB household).
I live for comfortable clothing right now. If I’m working at my desk and not leaving the house, pajama’s it is. If I’m hanging out with Little MPB, leggings are basically the most practical article of clothing ever for chasing a very active toddler.
And so, I accept the mommy outfit with pride and delight. If my clothing choice marks me as a mommy in public, I’m okay with that. I will wear the label of mommy with pride, and rejoice in the fact that I even get to be a mommy!
