When we enter parenthood, sleep definitely goes out the window, and sometimes (unfortunately) so does our focus on fashion. Sleep deprivation makes you care a heck of a lot less about what you’re wearing, and how you’re wearing it.

Pajamas usually become a staple in the new wardrobe and a scrunchy becomes a necessity instead of the enemy. To help other new moms combat lackluster style habits, we’ve come up with some easy fashion fixes.
