Everyone knows that being a mother is a full-time job, so the fact that many mamas also work 40+ hour jobs AND put together thoughtful outfits is mind-boggling.

She experiences life more engaged, balancing her career and motherhood, and maintains her authentic self-identity at all times – maybe even with a swipe of lipstick!
