Notes on Personal Style from the Mommyhood - Girl of Cardigan

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!

Mom Jeans: Notes on Personal Style - Girl of Cardigan

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.

HEADBANDS and beanies…I just buy jersey knit material and make my own. and there are great inexpensive beanies at H&M and Target.

Converse Chuck Taylors

Outfit Recipe: black jeans(Old Navy Rockstar jeans), flannel(H&M), a big cardigan (Modcloth), beanie (Target), and tennis shoes(Converse)….this is the outfit I am wearing in the pictures.

Quick Makeup: Maybelline Cover Stick, Burt’s Bees tinted chapstick in Pink Blossom, and Nars blush(the color is called Orgasm – word on the street is that the shade looks good on many people.)

Post earrings. I don’t feel ready for the day unless I have earrings on. It even trumps brushing my teeth…gross.

    I can relate! I think you look super cute Destiny! Your Etsy shop is very nice and has a simple, relaxed, yet classy feel.
