Mamahood Styled


// the LB brand: the revamped mom uniform //

you know when you find a brand that you absolutely love and can't live without? little boogaweezin, aka, the lb brand, is one of those company's for me. i still vividly remember when oliver was first born and i was up nursing him in the middle of the night. i would busy myself on instagram, finding inspiration and motivation to continue nursing from other mamas. i ran into jen's rad company and "milk drunk" baby tees. it was an absolute must-have for us! i decided that if i made it x amount of months nursing, the baby tee would be purchased! and so it began, over the seasons, we have continue to be strong supporters. Oliver has outgrown a couple of milk drunk onesies and tees, while i have rocked some mamawear, as well. when the opportunity to work with the lb brand (the mama portion of this amazing company) arose, i was so ecstatic. i was able to preview this amazing tee before it's grand launch on sept. 15th (my birthday)!

Thank you Jen, for this amazing and humbling opportunity!

How would you best describe your style?
Constantly evolving. I love steeze & expressing myself through my style. I went through an entire year of only wearing 80s gear; then I went through another year of only wearing items I had personally made or re-created. In the last two years, I never once repeated an outfit at work- just as a challenge to myself. Since then, I have donated and sold 3/4ths of my closet and love the simplicity of creating outfits. A simple base can so easily be elevated by simply accessorizing!
Fashion icons?
Gwen Stefani. I fell in love with her style in seventh grade and have been inspired by her tenacity for change yet her raw sense of self; she always stays true to herself. I once had the opportunity to meet her and my little fangirl heart was so happy because she was as beautiful and sweet in person as I had always imagined!

Brigitte Bardot or Kate Moss?
Goodness, what beauties! If I absolutely had to choose, I would go with my gut, which is BB. I dig a Bardot neckline and am a supporter of women who go against the grain- especially in times when it was not the norm.
What made you choose the LB piece your currently styling?
I am an avid fan of the LB Brand. Choosing was a tedious decision! I love them all! It really came down to an blind pick in order to make my final choice in a timely manner, haha! I love the fit of this PLM tee. I am so comfortable in black, and the cut is so versatile. It can be worn loose or side-knotted for a tighter look. The material is so delicious- it feels like butter on my skin! It makes me feel fierce with its powerful message. Roar.

Top 2 picks from LB’s BLK&WHT collection?
I am a huge fan of black and white, in general. Most of my house is black & white (& gold, of course), and it transcends into my wardrobe, as well. But I tend to shy away from white tees. However, I am so attracted to the Protector//Lover//Mother White V-Neck. There is something so alluring about a white tee on demin that can be casual or easily dressed up, that I love! I am also obsessed with the genius that is the black hoodie with the thumbholes! I mean, seriously! So rad, on-point and heart-eyes-forever!
A few ways you keep yourself feeling good as a mama?
A am a CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) on the side and working out is my jam! Not primarily for aesthetics, though. Nothing makes me feel more in tune with myself, as meeting my own fitness goals; nothing makes me feel like more of a badass than crushing a workout, lifting heavy and getting my glisten on! It is extremely therapeutic to me (I am also a counselor, haha), and need this time I set for myself to just be me. It is the only 30 minutes of my day that are solely mine- you know, when my baby boy doesn’t wake up in the middle of it, ready to start his day! I also love recreating indulgent treats into healthy, delicious foods, as well. Not that I don’t enjoy my pizza, cheeseburgers and froyo, though! haha! Lastly, a solid support system to validate the many days I doubt myself as a mama, is extremely important to me. Whether it’s my BFFs, my husband, family, the besitos from my toddler, or the amazing IG community, feeling connected and understood are invaluable assets to mi vida loca.6 Final
What are some things that inspire you when putting together a days look?
The season, weather and my mood; although I don’t follow any pre-established rules (fashion faux-pas are not my jam) and am pretty low-maintenance! I love mixing and matching timeless pieces with simple + frugal finds! I am also inspired by accessories, which I believe are key to my every day look- whether it’s any combination of a hat, headband, flower, earrings, [statement] necklace, scarf, belt, arm candy, rings, heels, sandals, or sneakers…it all comes together to complete one look! Oh, and of course, a bold lip!
Any tips for mamas juggling the demands of motherhood with the desire to still be stylish?
Keep it simple, keep it comfortable and stay true to yourself. When in doubt, wear what makes sense to you and simultaneously makes you look & feel good! Mamahood is hard and unpredictable. At least feel and look confident doing it! It’s like when I was in my undergrad: my roommate taught me to always dress up to finals- even when everyone else was dragging themselves across campus in their pjs from their all-nighter- you may fail your test, but at least you look good (& hence, feel good) doing so! Ultimately, we are all mamas doing this mamahood thing together- so when there’s your bebe’s oatmeal on your favorite tee, rock the ish out of it!
