Truthfully, if you know me in real life, you know I’m actually not a cool mom. I’m the goofy mom, the silly mom, the (sometimes) hot mess of a mom… but now that I’m in my 30s, I’m not running from those things anymore. I’m embracing them and finding so much freedom there, because now I know those things don’t define me completely.
Style-wise though, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with trying to look like a cool mom. I’m embracing my Birkenstocks and cotton tees + denim, and finding ways to make the tees and the denim exciting. Functionality is important but I’m finding ways to express myself within those constraints, and actually having fun with them.
A tee with Karl Lagerfeld as the Terminator also helps.
