Mini Subway Street Style

The cutest, tiniest and most stylish commuters you ever did see.

Mini Subway Street Style

Trying to get your style groove back (never mind squeeze in a shower) after having a babe can be… a challenge. Between feedings, diaper changes and all the laundry loads, fashion may trickle down to the bottom of your priority list. But at some point (though it may not feel like it now), you’ll find your head above water and will be on the lookout for some style inspiration. Our favorite place to turn to? The good old New York City subway.

We recently headed underground and found that the subway platform is indeed jam-packed with inspiring styles. Not just on the care-free, well-rested, childless set we assumed would be our source of inspiration, but also on the tiny riders that we moms are dressing every day. That’s right, turns out that you never lost your style groove after all -- you’ve just been channeling all your style energy into your babe. And for good reason. You mamas are turning heads left and right, making us daydream about mini-fashion that we wish came in our size.

    Here are the self-care items you desperately need right now

    Self care is not enough, but with the news, the ongoing pandemic and just life, it can't hurt to self-pamper to make the world feel less heavy.

    @stefiakti/Twenty20

    This week has felt like a month. Between the debate, Chrissy Teigen's heartbreaking news and now with President Trump tweeting that he and Melania have tested positive for COVID-19 it's hard to not feel overwhelmed. On top of that, we are still in a never ending historical pandemic, people are still losing their jobs and moms, well, we are at the end of our rope.
