What I Wore Real Mom Style: It’s All About Accessories #realmomstyle

Everyone has a staple outfit and for me that is a black top and jeans. In order to not feel like I repeat this outfit too much I am constantly switching up the accessories and shoes I wear. The black t-shirt is like a blank canvas and goes well with a wide variety of colors and styles. Today after a morning walk for charity I was feeling tired and not-very glamorous so the cure, my black tee, jeans and fun accessories, woks every time!

This post is about real moms who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are! Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion!

  3. Dr.Scholls always makes me think of little old lady shoes but those one’s you’re sporting are majorly cute.
