Mamas, meet Sara, a tres-fab L.A.-to-Denver re-lo, who was rocking a perfect iffy-spring-weather tot soccer/babywearing outfit at (gasp!) seven weeks postpartum. Yes, that seriously is a seven-week-old sweet baby girl nestled in that Ergo, and Sara is not only coherent at 10 AM, but she and her whole adorable family–her 2-1/2-year-old son and partner Israel, a music blogger (www.thecargoculte.com), were also in tow (check out their recent family portrait, taken at indie craft fair UNIQUE LA)–were the picture of family unit bliss at Denver's Wash Park this week.
It was a bit difficult to get all the deets and have an actual conversation as I was trying to pry my suddenly-velcro 2-1/2-year-old off of me, but we managed (to be fair, there was an incident of a rope–agility training for two-year-olds–being mistaken for a snake. L. is very literal). Sara pointed out that we were wearing the same J Brand skinnies (both cuffed with sneaker alternatives). She's wearing olive classic TOMS; a drapey, breastfeeding-friendly top from Old Navy; a camel ErgoBaby, and super-yummy Chloe sunnies (she confided she got a great deal on them on Gilt.com, or in my parlance Guilt.com–I recently unsubscribed. . . :).
Looking this put together on a weekday morning (seven weeks post baby to boot) is seriously impressive, but it also brings home that a mom uniform stocked with solid basics like great glasses, a fresh pair of TOMS and fab-fitting denim, (and a crazy-hot short hair style like Sara's) will always go the distance.
