Soft, stretchy waistband. A single garment with multiple purposes and looks. Made in Canada. Makes me look like I made an effort to dress myself. GET. IN. MY. CLOSET.
Meet the Halo All-in-One:
Made by local women in Lethbridge, Alberta, the All-in-One can be a skirt, a strapless dress, a shawl, a nursing cover or a scarf. The contrasting panels add even more variety to your look! I picked up mine at Calgary’s Lilac Festival, where owner Merena’s booth was buzzing with YYC women browsing her All-in-Ones and her Halos—her signature headbands for women and babies.
Let’s start by talking about headbands. I have always wanted to rock a headband. I have tried many times to get the right look. Inevitably, they just make my ears stick out or end up riding up the back of my head til I’m basically wearing a fabric crown. Apparently, my daughter doesn’t have this problem. (At least not yet.)
Cuteness overload. There’s honestly no reason for her to wear a headband other than that it’s ridiculously adorable. It’s not like her hair is getting in her eyes or she’s working up a sweat doing hot yoga. Me, on the other hand? I am always trying to get my hair off my face, particularly on the supremely hot day that we took our inaugural mother-daughter headband selfie.
I had to get used to the idea of wearing a headband. I had to start believing I could rock a head band.
You can wear your Halo Headband in a wide variety of ways, no matter your hair length or texture. The biggest issue I currently have with my hair is the post-partum regrowth that sticks up at my part and is starting to create bangs where I never had bangs before. Wearing my Halo nice and wide over my head, with my hair in a ponytail or not, solves this problem!
I love pulling my Halo over my messy mom bun. I am checking myself out in store windows as I walk by thinking, I look pretty fly!
So while I am mastering the fine art of headband-rocking, I am LIVING in my Halo All-in-One, in skirt mode. It’s essentially the yoga pants of skirts. It’s upping my stay-at-home Mom fashion game, big time.
I love wearing it with the contrasting panels at the front. I get a lot of compliments! Of course, due to the nature of motherhood, I wear a pair of yoga shorts underneath so I can still be bending, squatting and sitting criss-cross applesauce as needed. Pulling on my Halo All-in-One is like pulling on my favourite sweats, except I know I don’t look frumpy.
While tropical beaches are but a dream, the lovely breeze on the shores of Glenmore Reservoir in Calgary allowed me to imagine how fabulous it would be to stroll along the sand with this soft skirt blowing in the wind.
Because I’m pretty tall, wearing the All-in-One as a strapless dress would only be comfortable for me with a pair of leggings underneath, otherwise it would be a bit too mini for my liking. I won’t be wearing anything strapless, however, ‘til I can guarantee no one is pulling on my skirt! I know it would look great with a jean jacket or fitted cardigan, though.
I don’t typically use a cover when I’m nursing, but the All-in-One absolutely works to create some privacy for you and your nursling if you slip it on over your head. (Assuming you’re not already wearing it as a skirt, since … well, that would leave you nursing in your underwear.) As a skirt, the Halo would be absolutely divine during pregnancy and post-partum. And don’t forget the Halo headband…
If you’re like me, you struggle to treat yourself to something nice. It’s hard to justify additions to your wardrobe if you’re “just” a stay-at-home mom. (Those are giant rabbit ears over the “just,” by the way.) The Halo All-in-One is completely functional and comfortable even if you’re not going further afield than the grocery store, but it is also the perfect piece for your beach vacation or casual office!

I actually saw your Instagram photo a little while back, and already bought matching headbands for me, my daughter, and my baby on the way, and also got one for my sister! We got mountain meadows. It was hard to pick!

ooo! love the ‘Oh Dear’ all-in-one. I totally empathize with your feelings about justifying pretty purchases for yourself…but, dang! this solution is pretty darned easy to defend!
I can’t decide ! I’d probably choose the Birds and Birch solid/amber combo. The same pattern in grey is combo would be my second choice. They’re so versatile, I love it.
There were quite a few I really liked, including the NAVY QUATREFOIL!

I want one of these! I am all about clothes that can take you from maternity to nursing/baby and beyond – this fits that description! You could totally wear this in a variety of ways, and never would someone look at it and say “that’s a maternity skirt” 🙂

With the cut of the skirt you might as well embrace the country look and go for Oh Dear. Also, if we can’t be whimsical in our stay at home clothing, what the heck is the point!!
