Elizabeth Street Feature

Elizabeth Street is one of my favorite online "mom" magazines. There are so many great articles for moms, kids, fashion, fitness, etc. I try to read it as often as I can.

Last month I was so excited that I was a chosen submission to be one of their featured moms. Not that I consider myself fashionable, but I do love clothing and accessories.  I have started to feel more comfortable in my clothing recently since having Tom 14 months ago and have started to dress like I did before I had kids. I can rock a pair of sweats like no one's business but to dress up or wear anything a little fitted made me self conscious (and still sometimes does but I am getting there). I have been working hard to get back to my old self and I am getting close so have begun to vary up my wardrobe, and I make sure I put together a nice outfit every day.

I am going back to work Monday-Wednesdays in January helping with my husband and parents firm. In addition I am continuing to help out with my old company on Thursdays, Fridays and weekends. Overall it will equate to a full time job. It will be an adjustment but I am ready. I miss working and the routine of it. I will miss being able to workout anytime I want and spending time with the kids but I will make out a new schedule, and spend extra fun time with the kids.

With that said I have been doing a little shopping lately as all my work attire is somewhat outdated. I will share some outfits in the future but for now just wanted to share this accomplishment.

Was it a hard transition for anyone going back to work after having some time off with the kids?
