Mom Jeans is a collection of thoughts on personal style from mothers of young children all around the world. Some are fashionistas, some would call themselves the furthest thing from fashionable – all of them are wildly beautiful, and all of them inspire me. Enjoy!
Destiny Ray Rexius Morris. I have been a wife to Avery for 4.5 years and a mom to Easton for 8 months…we also have a cat named Rufus but I am not too fond of her. Avery and Easton like her so I am outnumbered. When Easton naps I make jewelry in my garage and when he wakes up, I take him around to the several boutiques I sell to here in Portland, OR…he makes a good salesman. I also sell on Etsy.
I would say my style is pretty casual…I usually am wearing some sort of stripes or flannel and a big sweater….or when I am feeling real crazy all three of them.
But if we are really being honest with each other, I am usually in cozy pants(or leisures if you will). I have a rule that if I am home for longer than an hour I can’t wear real pants.
Since becoming a mom, the biggest challenge to keeping up my personal style is SHOWERS…or lack there of.
I have straight across bangs, and they can be high maintenance so there are a lot of days where I don’t get to wash my hair….but I have found loop holes to fix that. Those loop holes are beanies and headbands.
Also, there are times where I would love to wear a dress, but then it gets dicey trying to feed Easton whilst wearing one.
Post earrings. I don’t feel ready for the day unless I have earrings on. It even trumps brushing my teeth…gross.
