#97: The Internal Effects of Style with Alela Sirah

February 17, 2022



Welcome back to the New Mom Boss Podcast! 


I’m sure you’re aware, but during the postpartum phase, our worlds get flipped upside down. There are so many different challenges that can make us feel like we’re not ourselves, from sleep deprivation, to our bodies transforming yet again


The problem is that we can go into this season and end up feeling like a deer caught in the headlights, or like an alien in someone else’s body. This can be really hard on new moms! 


One way to navigate this feeling is through our clothing and style. Today my guest is Alela Sirah, a personal stylist with 20 years of experience in the fashion industry. 


She uses her work to guide women through transitional life seasons, like milestone aging, breakups, new careers,...etc. But today, we’re talking specifically about postpartum and how clothes can support new moms. 


 Some big takeaways are:

  1. Our clothes are on the outside, but they can affect how we feel on the inside. 
  2. Plan ahead! Think about how you want to feel in that new phase.
  3. With fashion, it’s not about how many clothes you have, but how you wear them. 


I loved hearing from Alela! She offered so many great tips for motherhood that are GOLD, including an invitation to join her 7-day challenge! Check out her links below for more information!
