Motherhood.  One of the most challenging and rewarding things I have ever done in my life.  As a work from home Mom, I am constantly trying to find that perfect balance.  As I’m writing this, Madelyn is sitting on my feet flipping through her books.  I do feel very privileged to be able to work on things I’m passionate all while being a stay at home mom.  As a blogger I often feel like I’m in this weird no-mans land (or no-womans land).  I’m a style blogger who’s a mom and while writing about fashion has been my main gig, I can’t help but be influenced by my bright little light running around the house.  I hope to have more posts soon that travel into the Mom realm.  After all, being authentic is so important to me so flexing my mom muscles only makes sense.

Having said all that, enter Maddie in today’s style post!  Needless to say, my body has changed and morphed a lot from pregnancy.  As a result of that and a pretty major lifestyle change, my personal style has evolved too.  One item I’ve coveted in my wardrobe before, during, and after pregnancy are my Flatter Me Belts.  These amazing belts are stretchy, adjustable, and lay nice and flat.  When I was newly sporting the bump, this belt kept my pants up when my button could no longer be done up.  When I wanted to cinch in a dress but still be comfortable my FMB was perfect!  And now, while I’m loosing weight (ya, it takes a while for some of us), I rock this belt to keep up my pants until I can make it out to purchase a size down.   I have been wearing FMB for over 4 years now.  I first met the designer, Claire,  when I was an accessory buyer at The Urban Rack in Vancouver.  They are the most comfortable belts and have been a staple in my wardrobe ever since.  Mother’s Day came early for my Mom as she will be traveling next month.  You bet that one of her gifts was a belt in new hue Good Greycioius!   Flatter Me Belts currently has a promo on.  From now until May 3rd get 2 belts for $60 and your shipping is free!  Just use my shopping code PGMOMSDAY .

Lastly, how adorable are these matching Mommy & Me SaltWater Sandals?  I had to get us each a pair when I was in Barefoot Contessa last time in.  They carry the wee ones sandals at the Commercial Drive location only.  I love matching her…even though I use to swear I would never go there.  Oh how things change!
