When I came up with the idea to host a series on the blog called “What style means to me.” I initially thought, why not ask Latina bloggers to share their views on what style means to them as Latina women?. I’ve hosted a Latina blogger week in the past and love bringing together talented, smart women of my Latino community. However, in addition to having beautiful Latina bloggers in this series, I decided to expand the concept to include people I admire from all walks of life and ask them to share their perspective on style.
To start the series, I asked someone who I’ve never met but feel like I’ve known for a long time via Instagram. (Don’t we all feel like that over someone we admire from afar on Insta? lol) Coming off the heels of July 4th weekend, super mom extraordinaire and blogger Keila Leist from the blog Mommy in Milwaukee tells us what style means to her.
These are things that I never thought I would have to worry about as I became a mother. However, it plays a huge role in how I dress. I don’t think as mothers we have to sacrifice looking chic or pulled-together because we are nursing or busy. I’ve had to become creative with my clothes and usually opt for shirts that are easy to pull up and add a tight fitting tank underneath to provide coverage. Also, my collections of shirtdresses and button-down shirts have grown exponentially! It’s been an easy way to stay comfortable and polished at the same time.
Style for me in a nutshell is an expression of my lifestyle at the moment and what works for me. And that’s what makes it fun! 🙂
