You can be fashionable even if you’re a parent

A lot of times, new parents are worried that they will have to give up so many things because of their new little ones. Many women feel that they need to put away all the jewelry and makeup and pull out the sweats until their child is much older. Not only that, but they feel that shopping trips, days out with their friends, and even dates with their husbands are all going to go by the wayside. Luckily, you will quickly find that, though you may want to keep it in your jewelry box for the most part, you definitely don’t have to give up that beautiful infinity necklace (from your husband gave you last year.

Sure, some things will need to change once you have kids. You won’t be able to go out at the spur of the moment. Things like vacations will need to be more carefully planned, and even going out to dinner and a movie might take a little bit of advance notice. This does not mean that these thing need to, or should, completely disappear from your life. Just because you have a child does not mean that you are no longer a person yourself. You may not be able to wear pearls every day (or the baby might just think they are a teething ring), but pulling them out for a night on the town with the girls is completely justifiable.

No matter what is in your life that’s important to you, make sure that you don’t give these things up just because you have a child. Cutting back may end up happening, but there is no need to give up who you are just to be your child’s parent.
