I am a working woman with two little kids. I'm not going to get into the whole "working mom / stay at home mom" crapola because its just that - crap. I'm very lucky in that the 'working' part does not require me to do the whole business dress thing (at least not often) but I do have to leave my house / go to the office. And, whether I'm going to the office or to the park, I want to look pulled together and want to be able to pull it together in about 5 minutes flat. It doesn't always happen.
That said, the incredibly stylish and thoughtful Angie at youlookfab.com often provides inspiration and assistance. She does this for women in all sorts of roles, not just those that frequently involve wearing someone else's yogurt crust on your sweater. I recently stumbled across her "10 casual outfit formulas for the mom on the go" and think she breaks it down really well (and take note, yoga pants are not anywhere on the list). So if you're wondering what to do for fall, or feeling like you're in a rut, check out these ideas and try a few on for size. You might be pleasantly surprised.
*Apology - my previous Garanimals headline was inadvertantly borrowed from another blogger... it sounded cute for a reason, I just couldn't figure out why, and then I remembered. My bad.
