Fashion Icons: Ms. Mommy

By Petunia
Happy Belated Mother's Day! Would you believe that less than two years ago, Ms. Mommy was carrying around the 15 lbs of us two babies?!  Yes, we were very healthy babies and Ms. Mommy suffered through it with us.  Now she is our totally gorgeous and stylish fashion icon!  Today Ms. Mommy is taking a tiny break from housework to share with us some of her fashion tips.

Ms. Mommy, how would you describe your personal fashion style?
Classic-casual. Right now I'm really digging the cool, retro vibe of these Shabby Apple dresses. They're comfortable, stylish, and all you have to do is add a fun belt, hat, or other accessories for a pop of color.   

What are your favorite current fashion trends?
Vintage Americana! I can't tell you how much I am loving the plaids, tablecloth checks, and even the cat's eye sunglasses. Oh yes, and big hats. I am very much a hat person.

Where do you draw inspiration for your favorite fashion styles?
Well, I am quite busy with my three tiny children, so when I'm looking for something fun and new to wear I go straight to my favorite clothing retailers: ModCloth, Shabby Apple, and DownEast Basics. I also rely heavily on my sisters, particularly Auntie Amelia, to keep me from getting so lazy with my clothing that I wind up look "frumpy".

What advice would you give to other busy mommy's on getting dressed for the day?
Don't think about it too much. Stick with the basics. You may feel like wearing a lot of accessories, but if you're going to be hanging out with infants or toddlers all day, you'll quickly realize that anything dangly or shiny will become lost or broken within hours.
Holy Fat Babies, look at these fabulous photos of Ms. Mommy.  Did you see this Mr. Daddy?  Because Ms. Mommy told me you should.
