Mama Muse – Miranda Kerr
I was never overly aware of model Miranda Kerr until she was pregnant at the same time that I was with Kai. You know what it’s like – you instantly bond with any famous person going through the nine-month journey alongside you, so during the course of two pregnancies, I became enamored with Tori Spelling, Marcia Cross, Jillian Barberie, a few others I can’t remember now, and Miss Kerr (Mrs. Bloom?).
But Miranda is the only one whose style I kept my eye on after the babies were born (mine on December 20th, 2010 and hers just two weeks later on Jan. 6, 2011).
I love Miranda because she has an easy, laid-back approach to fashion that we real-life mamas can adopt far more easily than her Victoria’s Secret styles.
Colored jeans? Check.
Big neutral scarf? Always.
Statement bag? Of course.
Loose-fitting maxi dress? A must.
Another statement bag? This time in the exact blue I am obsessed with these days? We may as well be BFFs.
And she does it all while being a busy careerwoman, mama and wife.
A true modern-day muse.
But somehow she beat me when it came to losing the baby weight….hmm.
