The lovely Olivia Wilde just had a baby about eight weeks ago. Otis Alexander Sudeikis arrived and clearly stole the heart of mom and dad, Jason Sudeikis. Those first weeks of parenthood are often a hazy mix of pure joy and feeling terrified all while battling sleep deprivation. Which often means that it's really hard to pull yourself together for outings. Many days during that time, I was a take a shower and put pajamas right back on kind of person. If I was lucky enough to get in a shower. Most days I'd prefer to use that time to nap due to the up every two or so hours situation. Still, it was one of the best times of my life. Another great time? Stepping out as a new mom.
Being a superstar, Olivia has events to attend and outfits to wear, all while the cameras follow her around. What she chose to wear to a recent event is not only bold, but shows how empowered she is. This is what motherhood has done to her!
Skin-tight leather pants! Sky-high stiletto heels. A bad-ass lightning bold tank! Olivia! Absolutely stunning.
This is the amazing outfit she wore to the Ghetto Film School's 10th Spring Benefit at The Standard Biergarten in NYC. What better time to wear leather pants than when you are a new mom. It's like her "hear me roar" moment, showing off her strength as a woman, as a mother, and the empowerment that comes with it.

This is how you get your mojo back. If you feel good, you look good. Putting on clothes that make you feel strong, beautiful, and confident is a must for new moms. I would even go as far as to suggest replacing all your old sweatpants with pretty pajamas to help lift your mood when you are in the house as well. Embrace your motherly body. Wear whatever you want that makes you feel amazing. Because all mothers are.
What do you think of Olivia's leather pants? Do you feel that dressing up helped you get your mojo back post-baby?
