This weekend, I put out a call on my personal Facebook page (check out my fan page here) asking what the typical weekday outfit for a stay at home mom would be. After a day of chasing after kids, managing a home or running a business from home, it's hard to put yourself on the list. The overwhelming response for clothing choices was "jeans/sweats and a t-shirt/tank top/cardigan with flats or comfortable shoes".
This "Five Minute Fashion Fix" series aims to be:
- Fast (under five minutes)
- Easy for multiple body types (I've got a real body with lumps and bumps and everything).
- Do-able with what you have in your closet already - or if not, will be a great addition!
- Comfortable (no heels, as much as it pains me)
Cole Haan flats (find similar ones at Target, Payless)
This is my real body, no Spanx, no sucking it in (maybe a little). Real hips, people.
Let's just say that doing a fashion post while you are gorging yourself on Super Bowl
food is not wise (if I wasn't sucking in my belly, I would look about 4-5 months pregnant). Not pretty.
Anyhow, my Five Minute Fashion Fix for leggings and a plain tee is adding tunic top and chain necklace.
CAbi tunic (fall 2010)
Banana Republic necklace (similar finds at Forever 21 and H&M)
Or if you are feeling crazy, add some animal print flats from Target.
Tune in tomorrow for another way to work the leggings and t-shirt!
