not your average brocade

tee (banana republic)/Skirt (piperlime)/tights (gap) (similar)/booties (Aldo)/Deux Lux clutch (LOVE this one)/Rebecca Minkoff Sunglasses (here)

I ordered this skirt on Piperlime when it was on final sale for $12. Yes. $12. I'm not usually one to jump on final sale purchases because I'm usually one to have buyers remorse but the price was right.... and it was $12 well spent. The end.

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.
