Mom Fashion: 5 Items Every Busy Mom Needs this Fall

Mom Fashion: 5 Items Every Busy Mom Needs

As a busy mom of 4, I know it can be difficult to find the time to look fashionably fabulous every single day. If I have the chance to rise and shine before my sons, I usually get a good hour or so before they are up. I can shower. I can dry my hair. I can put on makeup. And I can take the time to pick out a great outfit.

(It doesn’t always happen, believe me.)

I received a question from a reader that I am excited to blog about today…

I just had a baby 5 months ago and I am looking to update my fall wardrobe. What do you recommend for a busy mom of 5 who wants to look stylish without breaking the bank and spending too much time at it?

I love this question because it’s the perfect time to head into some of my favorite stores and shops and score some fabulous Fall Clothing! I love finding pieces that I can reuse over and over again, but that are also affordable. I want to share 5 items that every busy moms need this Fall!

5 Items Every Busy Mom Needs this Fall:

1. Colored Denim – This is going to be a HUGE hit this Fall! Colored Denim is HOT and TRENDY this Fall, it’s a great way to mix up your fashion routine. You can find them at many different price points, and it’s important to make sure you shop around and find a price that works for you.

2. Scarves – The bolder, the better! Find some gorgeous scarves and wear them as your accessory of choice! I wear scarves all the time, I love mixing them up with different outfits and looks, it’s fun.

3. Chiffon Blouses – I love a gorgeous blouse with a pair of jeans or trousers or a skirt. There are so many beautiful options this Fall, but Old Navy has some of my favorite right now. The blouses also have a unique print on them which also adds to the fashion factor.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question! I will keep my eye out for these trends when updating my fall wardrobe. Another quick question though, can women with curves REALLY wear colored denim? I love the way it looks online, just not sure I’m daring enough to wear it.

    Thank you for focusing on moms having realistic options that make them feel and look good. As a coach for working moms (many of them WAHM’s) I notice that it can be easy to settle for “good enough” because we are not going to an office. The problem is that it can lead to feeling a little frumpy. I recently committed to stepping it up a notch (sweats to nicer jeans – so I’m not talkin’ Chanel) and I noticed that some of my friends took my lead… we all feel better now. Jamee Tenzer,
