It’s back to school time! Moms have been busy shopping for new clothes, shoes and school gear for kids and surely could use a few new pieces themselves for those back-t0-school coffees and PTA meetings! Here are a few looks I like:
This one is on my list! It’s the Veronica Beard Benson Boho Floral Silk Maxi Dress – it’s the perfect combination of wine and plum shades for Fall.
I also like the tailored shape and Fall hues of this one by Haute Hippie. It’s the Long-Sleeve Floral-Printed Henley Shirtdress. Pair it with a stylish faux-fur vest and some cool ankle boots and you are sure to be the hippest mom at school!
I also really like this Joseph Stand-Collar Silk Tunic Top – I’m tall at 5’9″ and I love to pair leggings or stretch ankle pants with a top long enough to cover all crucial areas. A silk top with leggings looks pulled-together enough and is not fussy, yet chic for back-to-school meetings. Throw on a favorite necklace and you are good-to-go.
This pair of Joseph Gabardine Stretch Ankle Pants is a classic style to keep on hand for shirts like the above.
Once you have a few pairs of great fitting pants, you can stock up on chic blouses that are figure-flattering with a soft pattern, like the above by Elle Tahari. It’s the Stacey Floral Print Long Sleeve Blouse. Click image for details.
This is a fun shirt by Vince. It comes in black or teal, is slimming and the shape accentuates all the right places. Throw your hair in a pony tail and you will feel casual and comfortable in this ensemble. Click here to view.
If the weather is still hot and humid, throw on a feminine capped sleeve blouse in Fall colors like this one by Rebecca Taylor! September can surprise us with some 90 degree days, so be prepared!
Feel like a kid again with a new handbag for back to school – the days of Trapper Keepers are over but there’s still time to splurge on a roomy bag for toting the Mommy Agenda and more!
Here’s our vote! Its a great look — and best of all, looks more expensive than it is at just $345. It’s the Rebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel – check it out! Sure you can splurge on a designer bag, the real trick is getting the look for less! If you can’t resist a splurge, check out Ralph Lauren’s Ricky Bag here. It is perfect for Fall 2015.
Buy a pair of booties in a neutral Fall color like this pair – and the best news yet is that it’s just $119.95! Click here to buy.
We love this tray — buy it here — when you collapse into bed at night after getting your brood off to school, remember all you do and be confident that you looked good while doing it! Cheers to back to school! ~Melissa Hawks
