Mama’s Got Motifs

Her Look

Text by Claire Baiz • Photography by Phil Procopio

“Tall boots are hard to pull on when you’re pregnant,” says second-time mom Kattie Meyer. “I’m lucky—there are so many cute booties out there.” Meyer admits maternity pants are a blessing, but she gives the thumbs-down to maternity tops. “I like flowy tops anyway.”

The owner of Motif’s for the Home, Meyer is a fierce advocate of buying local, and with great shopping experiences just steps from her downtown store, it’s easy. She frequents The Blue Rose, Dragonfly, Sora & Co., and The Boutique. “Because I like well-made classics, I’m still wearing things I bought in college, sixteen years ago.”

Motifs specializes in interiors, but Meyer expresses her classic, eclectic style with fashion accents and (duh) baby gear. She used to drive to Bozeman to buy conscionable clothing from a company called Aden + Anais. Now, her toddler daughter and new baby son will be stylin’: Meyer’s store carries the full line.

Their look: Sweater, skirt and shoes from the Blue Rose. Jacket from Cabi bought through Kelly Harp. Earrings are from Motifs. Marias’ jacket from Bumps ‘n Bundles (children’s boutique in Billings). Dress from Nordstrom and shoes from Target.
