Lifted Her Look Week 1

It's been literally years since I first tried to launch this series on the blog, so even though this wasn't a full week of outfits, it's better to start than wait for perfection. So here we go! 

I'm really trying to find my style again after becoming a mom. It's really hard motivating to get ready each morning when I work from home and don't have to get dressed and put outfits together. However, I have noticed a big impact that getting ready for the day has on my mental health. When I take the time to do my hair, makeup, and put an outfit together I notice a significant impact in my mood and productivity throughout the day. 

The way this series initially started was to find an outfit online, and try to recreate it with clothes in my closet. But now, my outfits are also inspired by whatever Rent The Runway options I have that month, so it will be a little bit of a combination. 

I didn't get ready or document my outfits on Monday or Tuesday this week, so we'll start with what I wore Wednesday! I rented this matching set, however I think they've been washed a different amount of times so the fading makes it look mismatched together. So I styled it with jeans and my white converse for a cute, but casual and easy look. I worked from a cafe for a few hours after school drop off, then back home for a while to get a few things done between meetings. Then I met my sister for dinner out! It was the perfect, comfy outfit for a busy day.

Here are my inspiration looks, and then the way I styled it. 

Day two, Thursday started with an early morning hair appointment right after I dropped the boys at school. So, I did my makeup but went with a comfy & casual outfit since I had to get out of the house early and get straight to my appointment. I had big plans of changing when I got home for rest of the day, but by 3pm that hadn't happened so I called it.  

Today is another casual day. I have a little bit of work and only one meeting, plus a few things to do around the house today. Then I'm picking up Graham early and we have a play date with a couple neighborhood friends. I wanted to feel put together but also comfortable. 

Looking forward to next week. My goal is to get ready for the day (do my makeup, hair and get dressed) at least 4 days!
