Windy City Street Style: The Glam Mom

on

Meet Michelle, the lovely lady behind the blog, The Glam Mom. Let’s jump into the interview and learn how this stay at home mother of three keeps her look fierce and fabulous!20160412_232747

WCW: How would you describe your personal style?
TGM: I would say it’s casual glam. I love to be comfy, but still look fancy. Lots of stretchy denim with cute comfy tops paired with a high end handbag and great shoes.

WCW: Do you have any tips for style when relying on transit?
TGM: It’s been a long time since I’ve relied on a bus to get to work, but with unpredictable Chicago weather, you have to be prepared for anything. I used to commute in sneakers and carry my nice shoes in a large tote, along with makeup and other work necessities. So my feet were not always cute, but I could make up for it with a cute coat. Sometimes you just have to be practical. It’s not easy to chase a bus in heels!20160412_232731

WCW: What’s your favorite accessory?
TGM: Handbags. Handbags. Handbags.

WCW: If I peeked in your closet, what brands would I see repeat?
TGM: I’m obsessed with Forever 21. I’m always in there! Target brands, like Mossimo and Merona, also. Target is a trap! LOL! H&M, Asos, Lularoe and recently I’ve started collecting pieces from Eloquii. You’d see a ton of denim in all cuts and colors and loose fitting, but still cute and flattering tops.20160412_232804
WCW: Do you dress differently for work?
TGM: I’m a Stay at Home Mom of 3 little kids (4, 2.5 and 14 months). And I try to get cute every day. You won’t catch me in yoga pants or sweats unless my kids are vomiting. It’s not my thing. I need my denim!20160412_232837

WCW: Name your favorite place to shop online and in store.
TGM: Forever 21. I shop so much (it’s a problem I’m working on lol!) I know their sizing, their Plus section has such a great variety and everything is really affordable! I can’t stay away from that place! There are always so many new choices when I go!

WCW: What’s in your purse?
TGM: Mom stuff! Lol! My wallet and keys, of course
But then I also change my lip color daily, so there are always a ton of lipsticks and glosses laying around in there. Hand lotion, lip balm and gum always. Then a diaper or 2 depending on how many kids are with me and where we’re going. Wipes, and usually a baby snack of some kind. It changes every day.DSC_0367
