No, I'm not talking about some CSI-esque television show. I'm speaking of the fashion feint motherhood plays on a woman's sense of style. You've all seen it and maybe even are wearing it right now. The Uniform comes in two ghastly iterations: khaki pants, t-shirt, and sneakers or faded and pilling yoga pants, t-shirt, and orthopedic looking flats (or in colder months, Uggs). There are some good points to The Uniform: You can wear it five times a week and no one notices; it's comfy; makes you feel maternal; you blend in perfectly with the other moms standing in line at - (name any discount retail chain). The Uniform is so ubiquitous that not only will no one notice if you wear it five times a week, in fact, no one will notice you period. Looking comfy and maternal reminds men of their mothers. You're also a wife. You used to be a girlfriend. Once upon a time you were a hot date. Get the picture?
The good news is wearing kitten heels does not make you a bad mother and your children don't care if you're wearing a spicy lip gloss and eyeliner. You're still Mum - they won't forget. Maybe it's time to shake things up a little bit. With a few updates you can liven up your look, feel better about yourself and remind your man of the sexy woman he married.
