For me the hardest part of back to school has to be the early mornings. Each year we say we’ll plan to start getting up early so we are ready. Then the heat wave comes and we relax all day in the cool and stay up way, way too late! Epic fail. I thought I’d share some of my favorite back to school “mom tips”. How to look styled and items that help me stay on track.
Now, of course coffee is a first for me. Fact, it usually takes two cups. Just sayin’ I’m making it a point to have some quick casual clothing and other items that make me look like I might have it together when the reality is I’m probably sleep walking when I take her to school at 7:15 am!
Styled And Ready Under 15 minutes!
Fifteen minutes or less to get ready? Wash your face, brush your teeth, brush your hair. Put on a light foundation, lip stick and sunglasses. Never under estimate the power of good sunglasses *Aviator Ray Bans and a pretty lipstick. Win/win. The sunglasses cover up any bags from your late nights. Bonus your sunglasses help when driving with early am sun or glare. The lipstick diverts to your lips and makes you look a bit polished.
My four fall lipstick styled and ready to go picks are;
Every mom needs a pair of slip on shoes. Cute flats are a must! Our pick *MIA Amari Scalloped Flat. Jump in your clothes, slip on your shoes and go.
Then have you ever dropped off your kids at school. Then headed out before pick up time to grab a few things and time slipped away?? Next thing you know your late! Yes, cell phones have clocks but, there is something to be said for wearing a *bracelet watch on your wrist. I know I check more often, rather than pulling out my phone. Bonus you look stylish.
Styled easy to look polished outfits;
We always think of the kids for back to school outfits. But, I think every mom should pick up a few basics to have you looking polished, without spending a lot of money. A scoop neck tee shirt to pair under a cardigan or heavy knit point blazer. Both make you look stylish and feel like your off to a good start, even if you are just working from home.
For pants an easy fit, mid rise Harper trouser paired with sneakers for a casual look. Or paired with your slip on flats for an upscale casual look. But, I won’t deny my favorite pick is the blazer paired with a nice jean with either shoes. Now your good to go!
