It’s no secret that moms are busy women! They wear many ‘hats’ as wife, sister, mother, daughter, businesswoman…you name it.
My mom clients often ask, “How can I look and feel stylish when I’m juggling so many things?” Many have put style way down the list, resorting to sweatpants, UGG boots, yoga attire and other comfy pieces as a daily uniform. This feels like “giving up” to some, but they’re not sure how to be a busy and stylish mommy.
Here are a few comfortable basics every woman, especially busy moms, should have in the closet:
Great-fitting jeans you feel good in – preferably dark washed as they transition easily from casual to dressy. Try Yoga jeans – they have the chic appeal of denim but the comfort of a yoga pant.
Get a trench coat in a vibrant color – this way you’ll have a classic piece with personality for years to come!
Flats are chic and cushioning while you race around on mommy duty. But don’t cheap out to make sure you get a well-made shoe with some support. Now you can kiss those frumpy boots goodbye!
A fabulous blazer is essential. It’s an easy thing to toss over a camisole or t-shirt and instantly pumps up your wardrobe.
T-shirts and camis in an array of colors are necessities. You can dress up or dress down either item with jeans, slacks or skirts – and of course, the right accessories.
Statement jewelry is a MUST for every wardrobe. Get a few fun, bold pieces in metallic or gem-covered styles. Just don’t overdo it by sticking to the only two statement pieces at a time “rule.”
The basics will definitely get you back on track to being a stylish AND multi-tasking mommy. I’m happy to answer any questions you have, so please, ask away!
Warmest wishes,

    Excellent article Christie! I feel that fashion is so important in feeling good about yourself and showing that being a mummy with style is uber-important! Style should not be forgotten just because we become a moms – one has to get dressed so why not make it fun!

    Regardless of where you are or what you are doing, your image represents who you are. So play along and have fun!

    Although I do have to admit, I do have a pair of Uggs – but they match my 6 year old daughters and are super easy to wear! My one fashion sin, I guess!

    Solid blog. I got a lot of good data. I’ve been following this technology for awhile. It’s fascinating how it keeps varying, yet some of the core factors remain the same. Have you seen much change since Google made their latest acquisition in the field?
