Rajni has had quite a career in publishing with stints at NYLON, Glamour, Vibe, Racked…the list goes on. One of our denim-wearing icons, her sense of style always inspires us to rethink the way we’re putting our own outfits together.
So when she had her son last year we wondered if her trademark crop tops and jeans would go. Spoiler alert: Not at all. Take a tour of Rajni’s home and hear about the way her style has evolved (er, stayed relatively the same) since having Diego and the new shoe style she’s wearing endlessly.
Has your style changed since becoming a mother? If so, in what ways?
Weirdly it has not changed very much. I still rock jeans and crop tops. I just appreciate my body more!
Is anything off-limits now that you're a mom (silk? stilettos?!) or the inverse, new things you have tried and newly love?
Nothing is off limits. If I'm feeling it, I'm wearing it. I am a loafers lover now. I never was before, but after having baby I began appreciating that style of shoe.
What are your resources for awesome kids' clothes?
Diego grows out of his clothes so quick, so I never spend crazy amounts of money on them. Mass fashion is where it’s at! H&M, Zara…
Most surprising part of being a mom?
Since having Diego, I've asked myself "Why didn't I do this sooner?"
Most difficult part of motherhood?
Keeping my independent identity.
Biggest motherhood success?
Learning from that little tot. He teaches me a lesson every day.
Favorite part of motherhood thus far?
Seeing him grow, but also wanting him to slow down.
What have you learned about yourself since becoming a mama?
I'm a better mama than I thought I would be, and I can't wait to do it again.
What have you learned about your own mother since becoming a mama?
Well I already knew this, but seeing my mom with Diego just reinforced how excellent she is as a mother.
Thank you, Rajni!
