I’m a huge fans of jeans and a shirt- it’s an easy, comfy, ‘go to’ mom outfit for me.
The thing is, I see so many moms wearing a similar look (jeans and a tee), but instead of looking cute- it can be frumpy.
A big, boxy t shirt is not flattering and tennis shoes with jeans just isn’t a good look.
Truthfully, if you still own any t shirts from college- it’s time to get rid of them. Unless you are really sentimental about one (like the one I’m wearing on the right was my waitress uniform back when I met my hubby)… I’d say get rid of all of them.
On the left is my re-worked outfit. It’s the same pair of jeans- but with this interesting tank and grey cardigan- my outfit seems more stylish, and yet it’s just as comfy.
You’ll notice I’ve replaced the tennis shoes with my Naot sandals- but my Puma flats would have worked here as well.
I’m playing tennis at 8:00, then volunteering at school, then going to the dentist, running by the grocery store, then walking my dog. I’ll even try to squeeze in a little house work when I get home (as if!).
My outfit needs to be versatile, casual and easy!
I could run around town looking like the old me (on the right), but this is just awful! My bright white tennis shoes are glaring. The loose, baggy track pants are unflattering and the plain black fleece is dull.
On the left is my re-worked look. This jacket is actually part of my tennis team uniform, so after my match today, I’ll switch out my tennis skirt for these cute cropped jeans. The fitted style of this jacket is much more flattering than the fleece. And the red tank peeking out from underneath adds some color and interest. As for my shoes- I’ve replaced my bright white shoes for my comfy Pumas.
I’m now ready to run into someone I know and not be totally embarrassed. This may not be my cutest outfit- but it’s perfect for my crazy day.
