that dress...mom style

dress (Madewell)/Purse (Rebecca Minkoff, similar)/shoes (Superga)/sunglasses (Prada)

Here is look #2 with this dress. You can find the first one here. I call this look "mom on the go." I'm pretty creative, I know. This dress is perfect for a day with the kids because a) it's black (hides stains well) and b) it is short enough to not look matronly but long enough to not flash everyone at the park and c) it works as well with a pair of heels as it does with a pair of sneakers.

testing out my "chasing kids in this dress" theory...it held up!

1 dress 2 ways. Stay tuned for number 3!

  1. OK, I'm now a believer that this is actually a dress! And now I'm actually EXTRA pumped to see styling option #3 because I have a very similar dress and haven't worn it yet because I haven't taken the time to figure out how I want to wear it. Thanks for doing all the work and figuring it out for me, hee hee.

  3. Love the casual look with sneakers! (and the line about not flashing people in the park made me chuckle). ;) xoxo Danielle @ For the Love of Leopard
