I am a busy mom of two boys. "Have kids they said, nothing will change....except everything".
For one thing (out of one million) my style has changed...They say you should go into your 20's in club wear and come out knowing how to dress appropriately. I think this can be comparative to becoming a mom. You go into motherhood with the ideal that you can do it all. You have these thoughts that you will get up and get cute everyday (& somedays you do and feel like a boss), but mostly you come out after a few years realizing a good fresh pair of yoga pants is actually the win, because it meant laundry actually got done.
It's not easy in those early days, especially when the kids are young and you are literally your child's adult snack servant. I know, because I let go for a little while, I wore leggings straight for 6 months after my second child. Why? Because there was no waist band to report to. No jean zipper judging me and the feeling was glorious, I highly recommend this (we have a pair on the site actually you'll love).
BUT guess what - that's ok, because YOU my dear are raising humans. Real life humans, that will treat others with respect and dignity and kindness one day (hopefully). But it's so hard and one day you will wake up and decide, it's time to meet reality again and it's time to test out those midrise jeans that all those years you swore you'd never try.
And when you do emerge from the cloud of haze, you will find, that Moms actually dress cool now. And those mid-rise jeans, are actually the exact amount of stability your body needs in the core region, while it regains its composure. And you'll also find that company owners like me, understand fluctuation in sizes and weight, because I am a woman and we all deal with that. So when I buy clothing styles, I choose them for comfort and function.
Women's comfort isn't the only reason, but MOST of the reason I started Savvy Wool. I wanted to provide affordable options that were casual enough to chase after busy children, wear to work or dress up in cute comfortable style for a girls night out.
I want each mom that wears Savvy Wool to still feel a tiny bit of themselves while wearing them and I hope you know I keep you in mind and all that life has involved when I choose pieces for the shop.
Keep pushing ladies, you are raising the future, you might be half asleep doing it, but you’re doing it girl! Pound it and go shopping babes!
