What I'm wearing

The outfit below is what I am wearing to my son's school on Friday for his fall party. This is a go to outfit for me. I am the room mom for his class so in addition to making like a million cookies, I will be working the center will the kids will be decorating the cookies. So the outfit I picked out to wear is made for comfort.Every one probably already has a shirt, jeans and shoes just like this. The jeans are a perfect cut and fit for any size women, they will make you feel good about yourself...(lol) The shirt is just a plain white t-shirt that I can throw in the wash and when I get icing all over it. The shoes are just comfy ballet flats. The tote is a awesome green color that I can shove a ton of stuff in. Diapers, wipes, eppi pens, toys, plus all my stuff I need. Invest in totes that you love that you can double as a diaper bag.  The jewelry is what makes this outfit, It is trendy and fun and I love every piece. The jewelry is made by Stella And Dot, the bib necklace is absolutely beautiful and I love it. I wear it probably at least twice a week with t-shirts. It will make the simplest outfit stunning and chic. The bracelet I don't own yet but I will soon I hope. The coat is a classic every woman should own a pea coat in a fun color. Let me know if you like this look, or if you would even wear this?

Day to Night

The Polyvore below is an example of how you can take the same jeans and tank top that you wear during the day and change a few things and make it a night time look. So all I did was change the jewelry and take off the sweater, change the shoes, and add change to a cute little clutch from your tote. You could do this and freshen up your makeup to go out with the girls or your hubby in less than 5 minutes. All of your basic clothes you wear everyday can double as stylish clothes to go from day to night. What do you think? Would you wear this day or night look?

Every woman much less every mom needs go to outfits to fit your lifestyle. Women who have go to outfits can get ready quick if they wake up late, or get dirty before they walk out the door (due to kids or dogs) and need to change quickly. These outfits should fit your lifestyle if your a SAHM or WAHM they are probably going to casual like mine.

Tips on getting ready with a little under foot

So being a mom and being fashionable don't really seem to go hand and hand anymore. When I pick my son up at school in the afternoon I would say 90% of the moms are wearing their sweatpants. I know that it is hard to find the time to get dressed when you have other little one's still under foot. I am here to tell you it is possible I have a 2 year old under foot all the time (she decided she no longer needs naps) and I still get dressed to pick up my son from K. Here are some tips to distract little ones while still watching them as you get ready.
-Allow your kids to help you get ready. My daughter does this she helps me brush my hair, put my makeup on. (well she watches me put my makeup on) Really just let them play in the bathroom. My daughter has a drawer in my bathroom that is for her and I put new stuff in it all the time to keep her entertained. She only gets to play with it while I get ready so it's a treat for her.
-Take a shower the night before. This one is a must for me, we have to leave the house at 7:15am to take my son to school in the morning. I am not willing to wake up any earlier than 6:30am just to take a shower. My hair is crazy in the morning I am cursed I mean blessed with wavy out of control hair. When I take a shower the night before all I do is flat iron my hair in the morning takes no time at all to make it look pretty good.
-Pick out your clothes the night before if you have something to do the next day that's special. Lunch with friends, play date, PTA, anything that is different from your normal day. Take the time to pick out an outfit that you feel good in.
-Take the time to wear make up. All you need is tinted moisturizer, blush, mascara, lip gloss.
-Stand tall and be proud, confidence speaks louder than anything.
