Dress Like A Chic Mom

Mothers are busy! I know…I’ve been there, done that. I’ve had 10 minutes to get ready between dropping the kids off at a sleepover party and attending a dinner party. That doesn’t mean I went inside a happening lounge in a sweat suit — which has become many moms’ “official outfit of choice.” As a working mother and an expert in beauty and fashion, I can honestly tell you that YOU can be fashionable and functional – in just a few minutes and with only a few staples of clothing in your closet.

Here are sample outfits for those more casual occasions….

Denim Jacket, Denim pants, Striped belt, Shoes, White Long Sleeve T,shird, Gloves, Handbag, Necklace

Now, when it comes to dressing it up a bit ….

Now that you have your mom’s guide to style, I dare you to dump your wrinkled go-to T-shirt! Tell me: What’s your least fashionable “outfit of choice”? What’s your “Hot Mama” look?

Downsize Your handbag

Classic hardware


Many women are weighing themselves down by carrying overstuffed handbags, we have been carrying on average 7 to 10 pounds and now we are complaining of neck, shoulder and back pain. And we’re surprised!!!

Technological advances using smaller gizmo’s  like the  Iphone and Blackberry mean that we no longer have to carry around a phone book, appointment book or lap top . So ladies is it time to empty all the stuff out of our handbags and revaluate it’s contents and start downsizing.

Experts agree that our handbag should only weigh  between 3 to 5 pounds ,or 10 percent of your body weight. A resent UK retailer Debenhams survey revealed the weight of a women’s handbag in Europe has fallen by 57% the lowest weight in seven years.

The Fashion trend in handbags for Fall 2010 is for smaller handbags so if your handbag is insanely heavy and you are guilty of over stuffing it ,now is the best time for a good old fashion clean out.

Look for Lady Like and Lady Sized handbags this Fall with classic hardware for the best finishing touche to any outfit...
