Busy Moms and Dressing Up: How to Save Time and Money for Important Events


As a new mom, it can be difficult to find a few minutes a day for yourself. 

But let me tell you a secret - experienced moms are in the same situation! Whether we’re raising a tribe of joyful little juniors or caring for the first angel that blessed our lives, kids do take a lot of time and attention. 

However, you can’t allow yourself to get swept away by the current and lose yourself in the craziness. Yes, being a mom is a full-time job without pay or benefits, but it does get easier after a while. Also, kids learn from our behavior. Therefore, by taking care of yourself, you teach them how to be responsible and independent. 

And, since busy moms tend to forget fashion was ever a thing, today I want to talk about how to look amazing without spending too much or dedicating too much time to choosing your outfits. We’re also going to discuss dressing up for events so you’ll look fashionable (even if junior will pull on your skirt from time to time).

Balance Out Shopping & Saving

I know, every penny you have goes towards the young ones. Children are expensive, especially when you want to make sure they have anything they want and need to grow healthy and strong. Still, you can put some money aside for your own “selfish” needs as well. After all, when was the last time you bought yourself a pretty dress?

Now, there is one scenario that usually will have you dig into the budget pretty deep - going to a fancy event like a wedding or an office party. Luckily, there is a way to make sure your outfit will be on point without losing your savings - you can hire designer clothing for any occasion and pay only the rental fee. This way you have access to the latest and trendiest outfits but don’t pay for them. 

Buy No-Effort Clothes

And no, I’m not talking about sweatpants and sweatshirts! Go to your favorite store, and treat yourself! You never know, you might find some exclusive nordstrom deals meaning you don’t need to give your clothes extra care to look good. Also, invest in durable colors (especially with an infant around) and avoid restrictive designs. 

For instance, during summer you could go for flowy dresses that highlight your femininity and keep you comfy even during the hottest days. Moreover, a dress is the very definition of a no-effort garment since it doesn’t need to be matched with a bottom and it’s easy to put on and take off. 

Comfort & Quality

As a mom, you need comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely without worrying about wrinkles or the occasional spill. 

However, you should also invest in several high-quality items with a classic, timeless design that will stay with you for years to come. True, these items will not come cheap, but they will help you build a fashionable wardrobe that will never go out of style

This way, you’ll always go by that busy mom that looks good regardless of the situation and everyone admires. 

Wrap Up

In summary, even busy moms need to take care of themselves to feel good and empowered. While it may be a bit more difficult now, with the budget and schedule stretched to the limit to fit the new baby’s needs, you can still find time and money for little guilty pleasures. 

After all, you don’t have to be up to date with the latest trends in fashion; you just have to find the style that works for you and makes you feel good. It all comes from your mindset and attitude!
