Inside Mom Kat’s Bag

Compare the contents of your bag now that you are a mom to that of pre-motherhood. Big difference right?

Want to know what is inside my bag now? Well aside from my kid’s separate bags, here are my mommy must haves and are a frequent stuff inside my bag:

Be a Standout with Jumpsuits in the Office

Aside from the usual blouse, skirt and dress, another good fashion must have for an office girl like me is a jumpsuit. It is non-conventional but just knowing the do’s and don’ts  will help you look chic and fabulous.Here are some of my tips:

1. Stick to plane colored suits

Prints on jumpsuits have the tendency to make it look too casual. Monochromatic shades, however, need not be boring. Choose interesting colors to make it a standout. Or if you want some print, I say choose ones in which prints are on the top part of the suit.

Must Have Shoes for Moms

I love shoes! While some women’s  eyes ogle on bags or jewelry, I tend to get more fascinated with shoes of every shapes, size and color. It can be a statement on its own and it can make or break one’s outfit. I love how a white shirt and jeans can be chic and sophisticated when paired with a high heeled red pumps, or a vintage dress for dinners with friends becomes trendy when worn with a pair of wedges.

Before I had kids, I have cabinets full of different pairs of shoes and since I am on the petite side, most of it are heeled ones, pumps, sandals, stilettos, and clogs.

The Little Black Dress

Every woman, whatever age, status, and body type, should have one or two little black dress inside her closet. For fashion experts, it is known as the LBD, and is always in the list of  wardrobe “must haves”, and I could not agree more. Your LBD can practically take you anywhere; from casual, business attire, to formal occasions.

Just make the most of the dress by pairing it with the right accessories and it will seem like a new outfit altogether.

But do not fret. Nowadays, we have a lot of clothes to choose from for pregnant women to make them look as comfortable and fashionable as ever while showing off that precious baby bump. And to give you, pregnant moms a dose of inspiration here are my personal favorite maternity fashion as worn by the Hollywood Celebrities:
