We’ve all heard the common misconceptions about being a stay-at-home mom. They get to spend all day doing arts and crafts, eating snacks, and generally living the good life. And if the house is still a mess at the end of the day, we all know what comes next: “So, what did you do all day?” But the truth (as any stay-at-home mom knows) is that caring for tiny humans who haven’t quite learned to calmly and rationally communicate their needs all day is hard work! Yes, some days there’s time to remove juice stains from the carpet, but other days it’s all you can do to keep the kids happy and healthy … or, at a minimum, alive.
On those days, getting dressed falls pretty low on the priority list. After all, kids are messy and chances are you’ll end up with at least one possibly unidentifiable substance on your shirt. So, many moms rely on sweats (or yoga pants, if you’re feeling fancy!) for daily wear. The ladies behind the wildly popular YouTube Channel WhatsUpMoms are all too familiar with this. That’s why they’ve come to rescue and found ways to make sweatpants at least a tad more presentable.
Want a few other tricks up your sleeve to make yourself look a little more put together in under 20 minutes? As far as makeup goes, find a tinted moisturizer you love to replace your old, time-consuming makeup routine. A little mascara and some lip gloss round out the perfect quick beauty routine. As for clothes, yes, comfort is often key, but what about accessories? A nice bag (even one big enough to haul all the things kids seem to need) and statement jewelry can make all the difference in the world.
