s.a.h.m. fashion

Old Navy dress (on sale)/Gap denim jacket (similar)/knee socks (here)/Frye boots (here)/Rebecca Minkoff 5 Zip mini (here)/Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)/Crow Steals Fire Necklace (here)

For me, one of the hardest adjustments to staying at home with kids, was not having an excuse to get dressed up and wear heels 5 days a week.  I love clothes and shoes (obviously.) I was (and often still am) at a loss for how to dress fashionably appropriate to stay at home with a toddler and a baby everyday.

Over the knee socks with low or no heeled boots are a great way to spice up your look. Wear this trend with an easy cotton dress, a mother's necklace and voila! you've got stay at home mom style.
