A typical outfit for this busy urban mom usually involves flats and denim. I think this pretty, fresh look is an easy one for most moms to pull off. This outfit only involves one new purchase--the top which I bought at the Ralph Lauren Private Sale last week (40% off thank you very much). This is an outfit I wear to the girls' school drop off and pick up and to Momtrends appointments I may have during the day. As a mom who writes about style, I give myself a lot of leeway to dress trendy and not have to appear as if I work in an office--big perk of the job.
The juxtaposition of the ruffles and the distressed boyfriend jeans is kind of my signature preppy bohemian style. While I wish I could tell you I wore heels everyday I'd be lying. Sassy flats are a must in my book. The belt sort of ties the whole thing together.
Here's the rundown of the look:
Denim: Ann Taylor Loft approx $29.99 2009 purchase
Top: Ralph Lauren Blue Label
Belt: Ralph Lauren vintage (circa 2001)
