How has your "style" changed since having a child?

I used to take a ton of time to get ready and look nice but the past 6mos Im lucky if I get time to brush although Im a SAHM I go to school full time, and usually find myself in jeans and a tshirt now a days! What about you ladies? Do you still find time to get all gussied up!?

  • I have a 4 mos. old but I work full-time so I still need to be presentable. My style hasn't changed that much, although I find myself not wanting to look like a 'mom.' I got my hair cut in a trendier style and I make sure not to look frumpy. I think I'm just worried I"ll let myself go.

  • Nope...I am pretty much the same. I dressed rather rocker-punker then and well I still dress like that now.

  • I never really gave a darn about how I looked before. I wore makeup, mostly clothes from Hot Topic and new age type stores and weird makeup. I still do. I still dye my hair weird shades of stuff and don't care when my blonde hair starts to show through again. If anything, I care even less about what other people think of me since I had my daughter.
