mom fashion mistakes

Por Dios, mamis. Let's make a pact to stop wearing these fashion don'ts immediately. I get it: Once we become mothers, we don't have as much time to put into our appearances. It doesn't mean we have to look like a hot mess. I'm not trying to get all judgy, because I've made most of these mami fashion mistakes.

It's no joke how much your body, especially your breasts, can change once you have kids. Just because a bra used to fit you doesn't mean it still does. Might be time to go get sized and splurge on bras that not only fit well, but make you look great.

Leggings are a great mami staple. You can wear them with a tunic, under a dress or under a short skirt, but if you are thinking of wearing leggings as actual standalone pants you better make sure they are not the see-through kind. Too much information.

You don't have to dress like a monja, but unless you are going out on a date, you should go with a more modest neckline. You can still do a v-neck just maybe have the v end a lot higher than your belly button.
