Mommy Maven: Surviving Fashion Week
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve left the house thinking I had it all together. The kids were ready for the day, my make-up was on, and my hair was maybe even blow dried! I then look down and there is the sight of little hand marks, milky, buttery, syrupy! I have to admit it makes me smile knowing they’ve left there little stamp on me, but I then realize that I am among adults now and my dress is a mess! Surviving Fashion Week, while being a busy mom, is just one of those times that having little paw prints all over a designer gown is not exactly the “chic mommy, I have it all together” look I am going for! But the reality, and the blessing, is that at fashion week or not, we are first and foremost moms.
I decided to reach out to some chic New York City moms to see what secret weapons they carry around in their under cover diaper bags to help transition from baby giggles to runway glow in seconds!
I decided to kick the week off with a peek inside my bag of tricks.
Some things you will never catch me without:
*Avent Natural Bottle
*Plum Organics Mish Mash
*Lamaze Freddie the FireFly
*Aden+Anai Swaddle Cloth
*Baby Bjorn carrier
*Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream
*Smash Box Powder
*Rose Water Spray
*Elizabeth Arden Foam Bronzer
Check back this week for more on how other chic moms are surviving fashion week!
