6 Instagram Mommies that Make Motherhood Look Good

Is it me or does it almost seem like motherhood is “trending”? Maybe it’s because Instagram influencers I've followed since the get-go (@somethingnavy) are growing up and growing their families in the public eye, or maybe it's just that I've gotten to "that age."

Whenever a wee-one arrives, priorities do inevitably shift. However, amongst my friends I'm recognizing a trend towards a more European style of parenting. One where a baby doesn't mean the END of a personal life, but rather the BEGINNING of a new sidekick. Newborns have become the ultimate accessory, coming along everywhere and mini-me toddlers are dressing as well as their style-setting mommies. Nowadays, posting your bikini bump is as popular as posting an #OOTD and mom jeans are for everyone.

Becoming a mother comes with plenty of challenges. Along with physical changes and less "you" time, the fear of losing your personal style can certainly be one of them. It's an exciting time, but also a tough one! In fact - a HUGE portion of my work as a personal stylist comes from new mommies who are ready to reclaim their personal identity after birth.

These 6 Insta-mommies remind us that motherhood is a chance to have fun and redefine your fashion identity, while creating a whole new mini-one.

Happy Mother's Day from these babes:!
