Effortless Style

I know that everyone has their own style, but being a mom keeps even the most fashionable gal desperately searching for something that matches in the morning! I'm no fashion guru, but I think I've got "mom style" down to a science, with no high-waisted jeans or shoulder pads in sight! I have devised a shopping list (a la Tim Gunn) to help you mix & match with very little effort! Here are some suggestions for simple, versatile pieces every mom needs in her closet:

1. Fitted tees (so easy. plus, Old Navy has 'em for $5!)
2. "Wifebeater" tanks (comfy, comfy, comfy)
3. Oversized sunglasses (instantly cover under-eye circles!)
4. A printed scarf (adds flair to a tee shirt & jeans)
6. An expensive-looking bag (if you can't afford a good quality one, fake it!)
7. A casual "day" dress (wear with flip flops or sneakers, cover up with a cardigan)
8. A frilly top (dress up your jeans)
9. A classic white blouse (preppy, but not stuffy)
10. Black pants (or other jeans-alternative)
11. Quality jeans (a great investment)
12. Date nite dress (could be a little, black dress or a girly floral print)
13. A cardigan (toss it in your bag in case it gets chilly, or baby spits up on your top!)
14. A cocktail ring (dresses up any outfit)
15. Big earrings (instantly make you look put together)
16. A simple necklace (a nice addition to any outfit)
17. Pea coat (classic winter staple)
18. Flip flops (easy for out-the-door)
19. Sneakers (a necessity when chasing kids)
20. Flats (comfy AND cute!)
21. Platform Slingback Heels (they're the easiest to walk in and they're super sexy)
