Dump the Frump
Even if you were a fashionista as a single girl, you may find that taking care of a child pushes you into frump territory. It happens -- sometimes you get so focused on taking care of other people, you forget to take care of yourself.
Here's how you'll know if you're in the frump zone:
- Does anything you're wearing right now have a visible hole or stain?
- Are you still wearing maternity clothes, even though your child is no longer in your belly?
- Does the waistband of your jeans come up way past your waist?
- Are you wearing clothes that are boxy, oversized, or otherwise hide your body?
If you're feeling frumpy, take our previous advice and learn how to dress to flatter your body type. Throw out the frump and get yourself some classic pieces. You don't have to spend a lot of money -- and don't forget that your clothes should be machine-washable.
