Mom Style

Dear Moms,

When you look good, you feel good - and when you feel good, you do good!

I know you don't have a lot of time to get ready in the morning.  We are all juggling a million things and whether it's a baby on your hip or an older child who can't find his shoes, I get it.  I also know you value comfort but still want to look cute.

Here's my quick and easy advice if you want to be comfortable & stylish, fast:

'Tis the season for cozy sweaters, comfy leggings and chic boots.  I hereby give you permission to wear some variation of this outfit for months on end.  I actually encourage my busy clients to create a "uniform" to take the guesswork out of getting dressed each morning!

A dark skinny or colored jean can be found at all price points and both look great with a wrap sweater, cape, or neutral striped top.

Flat leather boots are a must if you are running around with kids but still need to look "dressed".

Go for a pop of color with your handbag (mine is orange!).

As far as accessories, you can't go wrong with a great pair of gold hoops.  They are polished but not too dressy and go with practically anything.

Done!  And here's where you can find it all:


Belted Purple Cape: $59.00 Dorothy Perkins

Dark Skinny Jeans: $30 at Old Navy

Orange Leather Handbag- $150 Banana Republic
