“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” Coco Chanel
Fashion will always be one of my main obsessions so I’m thrilled it’s versatile. Toting around an infant isn’t conducive with four inch heels and $1,000 handbags that can’t even fit a couple pacifiers let alone the baby necessities I have to drag everywhere. Nonetheless I refuse to lose my sense of fashion simply because I have a child.
One of the ways I’ve adapted my style since having my son is focusing more on bold, practical accessories. Although some moms continue to rock high heels and dry-clean only dresses (well done ladies!), comfort and practicality come first in order for me to maintain my sanity. Beautiful accessories are an simple way to stay stylish as a mom because you can pair them with comfortable clothes and look polished. Below is a list of staple accessories exemplified by personal favorites from my closet.
Hats & Headpieces: Life-saving accessory for a new mom to hide unstyled or even unwashed hair (if you have an infant and still style your hair daily please call and tell me how!)

Headpieces (Top Left: Henri Bendel Crystal Headband, Bottom Left: Missoni Scarf, Top Right: Louis Vuitton Scarf)
Jewelry: Careful with long drop earrings or delicate necklaces, your child will love to pull on them. I live dangerously since I don’t want to wear stud earrings all the time or retire my necklaces.

Flats: Carrying around a fifteen pound (and growing) child in high heels would annihilate my legs, instead I opt for stylish flats.
