Time to jump on the fashion bandwagon and start talking about real outfits and real fashion. At casa de Momtrends. Things start moving early. There's little time to second-guess sartorial choices. All the ladies in this family select outfits the night before. This outfit was selected for a "go-see" a schmancy word for offering one's self up for criticism in the hopes of landing a marketing gig.
I wanted to appear hip and trendy, and also needed to take the girls to school. So this is what I pulled together.

First and foremost, the shoes were new to me. I got them at a fashion event a few months ago. I was thrilled with the chic look but even better, these heels were made for walking. The jeans are oldies but goodies. I spent a bundle on them a few years ago, but now they are in the rotation at least 2x per week. Making their cost per use come way down. The American Apparel tanks ($21) are a favorite. They've got a built-in shelf bra. Perfect for summer layering. And the two investments of the season are the necklace ($398) and the sweater ($298). The sweater is a favorite color and the batwing is an updated silhouette making if feel fresh not fussy. I've already worn the necklace a dozen times. It gets so many compliments.
I thought the outfit was fun, urban and cool. Don't know if I got the TJMaxx spot, but I did feel great. At the agency office I was surrounded by 20-year-old fashionistas in heels and I held my own.
