My husband always makes fun of Stacy and Clinton on What Not To Wear for their overuse of the term "Mom on the Go" when they're trying to convince these bedraggled women that it's important for a woman to present herself well, even when she's just out and about with her kids. While I may giggle at the term "Mom on the Go," I agree with their idea 100%. I even wrote a blog entry about fashion and mothers last summer, that you can read here if you missed it the first time. I strive to still look respectable when I'm running around with my boys. I want them to be proud of their mom, and not embarassed because I look like the last rose of summer. So I have decided that my perfect "Mom on the Go" uniform is: skinny jeans + bright flats + cute top + blazer + interesting jewelry. For me, this is a winning combination because I can still move around easily in the flats, I can take the jacket off if I get hot, and still look OK, and the outfit suggests that just because I may have a diaper and snack stuffed in my little purse, that doesn't mean I've thrown in the towel when it comes to fashion.
What is your working mom uniform? Of if you haven't had kids yet, what's your opinion on the topic? Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear from you!
