Shopping as a mom is different. Firstly, simply because you have other people to spend your money on. Your children’s clothes and essentials become a much more important expense than your own. Where you once went shopping for fun when you had a little spare cash, now, there are things that the kids need, and they seem to grow out of their clothes and shoes all of the time. There’s also time. You don’t have the time to shop at leisure, essential purchases are made quickly, without trying on or swapping to find the right color combination. Everything is done in a hurry.


Then, there is the style itself. When you spend your life running around after kids, taking them to appointments and playdates, cooking for them and cleaning up after them, you haven’t got the time or inclination to worry about fashion. You want to be comfortable and able to move around. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t look fantastic. With just a few key pieces you can have an easy to wear, comfortable and reliable wardrobe. While it’s fair to say, you need more than five things, these key pieces work with lots of outfits and can form the basis for your fabulous mom wardrobe.

Skinny Jeans



A good pair of skinny jeans goes with everything. You can dress them down with pumps and a loose tee, or style them for a rare date night or night out with the girls with some heels, a bit of sparkle and a cute top. For the perfect pair, opt for a dark color that hides kid spills. You might also want to go for high-waisted to help you to feel more confident in your post-baby body.

When it comes to jeans, it’s a good idea to spend a little more, and go for an eco-friendly option. You might wonder What does Tencel feel like? Or be concerned about sustainable fashions stamina. But, they feel fantastic, they're great for the planet, and they’ll probably last a lot longer than cheaper jeans, which is essential when they are going to be getting so much wear.

Comfortable Pumps

Heels are gorgeous, but when you are in a rush on the school run or chasing the kids around the park, nothing beats some comfortable flat pumps. Converse and similar styles are great for throwing on in a hurry, and they look good with jeans or dresses.

A Denim Shirt



Denim shirts are great. You can make a statement with double denim or wear over a cute summer dress. It gives you a great way to add layers in colder weather and looks cool under a chunky knit.

A Simple Black Dress



A simple black skater dress is so easy to wear. It looks great with thick tights or leggings, a jumper and boots in the winter, or with your converse and denim shirt in warmer weather. You can also dress it up with some heels and a statement necklace and clutch for a night out.

Stripy T-shirt

Plain white t-shirts are fabulous, they go with everything and always look sexy. But, with kids around, are they safe? You might prefer a navy and white striped tee.

I love a good basic tee. I buy them from either Target or Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has some great basics for less than $3 a piece. I stock up on black, white, and gray tee's. Target has my favorite dressy tee's too. 

Stripes are my addiction. I have a lot of them. I tend to stick to classic black and white strips or get a little bold and buy a colorful tee with white or black stripes. 

I also love a good boyfriend jean. They are perfect to wear with a pair of Chucks (aka Converse). I usually style them with a basic tee and throw a cardigan over during cooler months.
