Back to School: 4 Pieces for Instant Mama Style

It sure is another wonderful time of year! Mamas, we can all relate. As fun as Summer is, we welcome Fall with open arms and open car doors for the kids. And back to school style is for more than just the kiddos in my book. But I am sure you already guessed that. Really any excuse to shop and Im all over that. HA!

For me, I still have to walk my daughter into her preschool and the running joke is I am either homeless or hot. No, I am not full of myself thinking I am hot and all that, but you're either a mess or put together and I like homeless & hot for descriptions sake.

Typically, most mornings I can be found in workout or athleisure (where I look like I am headed to workout but just lazy AF and pretending) or I am on my way to my day job in which case I am reppin' goth attire in all black or I'm on my way to a photo shoot with my sweet friend Gina and look all put together. But hey lets face it, its probably the homeless looks more than anything ;) I'm sure the day will come when it is literally drive-thru drop off and I'll be dressed from the waist up and in jams and uggs on the bottom but until then...

Whether you're doing drive drop-off, walk-in or watching the am news waiting for the kids to walk off, here are my 4 simple dressing tips to have you looking put together in an instant for back to school fashion.

4 pieces for instant mama style for back to school parlor girl

1. Simple Top: this pullover/tunic is actually a side tie top, but I untied it and left it long, changing up the entire look of the top. Don't ya just love a double purpose item?!

2. Jeans: Any pair of jeans will do. Mine are vintage Levi's but I love these and these ones. Again as I mentioned in this post, the key to your outfit looking good and simply put together is balance. If you have a larger, roomy top, think skinny jeans on bottom and vice versa. I promise it balances out your look every time.

3. Flats/Slides/Mules: These type of shoes are super in for Fall and easy to slip on and walk around in. Plus, with all the embellishments these days they look extra cute and amp up any simple jeans and top outfit. I am so loving these Embellished Mules and happy to report that almost all sizes are re-stocked. I also have and love these and this pair too!

4. Large Sunglasses: Whether you want to hide the no-makeup or just look like you're famous, throwing on a huge pair of sunglasses is key and winning! I especially love this pair I got for $12. I also love these aviators and these new shields I am on a waitlist to re-buy, ugh.

And if you're feeling extra ambitious, throw on a fun necklace (p.s. mine is on sale for $40!)
