I’ve officially been back at work for over a week since maternity leave ended and it’s been such a whirlwind! From long nights nursing Sadie and comforting Naiya to pumping at the office every three hours, this mama is tired! When I wake up in the mornings completely groggy, the last thing I want to do is spend too much time picking out my outfits. That said, since I still want to look put together for the office, I’ve been mixing and matching basics to create a fool-proof office “uniform.”
Since going back to work from maternity leave, I’ve been trying to come up with ways of getting out of the house quicker and more efficiently for work without looking completely disheveled. A couple of weeks in, I’m realizing it’s no easy feat! Aside from the sheer exhaustion I feel every morning after nursing the night away, I need to feed Naiya at least twice before running out the door in the AM. I also need to meal prep (sometimes with her in hand) since I’m still on a very strict elimination diet for her (no gluten, dairy, soy or nuts due to her allergies). All in all, I’ve found that planning out a minimalist work “uniform” the night before work has been incredibly helpful. Sharing how you can nail one today too.
