I am not a mom (though all my friends will agree that I am BABY CRAZY), so I always feel weird talking about outfits for busy moms on the go.
But if I had to pick an outfit for a mom, this would be it: a button-up, cardigan and jeans (or chinos if you need to be slightly dressy). At least this is how I picture myself dressing as a mom – with my perfect, dirt-free children in tow. While wearing Crewcuts.
(Because why not add that to the fantasy?)
Honestly, even though I’m not a mom, this would be the kind of outfit I’d pick. It’s matchy without being stuffy, can be easily dressed up or down, includes pieces that can be worn multiple ways with multiple outfits (thus stretching a budget) and can be pulled together quickly during a busy morning. Flats are comfortable and perfect for running after an errant child. And every piece (minus the shoes) is machine-washable. Because it doesn’t take a mom to know that the dry cleaners is a PAIN.
