My sister is a stay at home mom and just the other day we were talking about moms who seem to always look put together. It can be a major feat for any mom, but if you are a mom looking for ways to tackle the day and look good doing it, you may want to pay attention to the information below! P.S. These looks can work for any woman because they are easy pieces that can be thrown on so you can get out the door and on with your day!

Below are the essentials for any mom on-the-go or for the working mom. 
These are general items, and of course, your wardrobe can always expand to include your favorites!

+ all items can be found at Old Navy
Dresses: These are my favorite because they are a one piece item and can be paired with flats, heels, wedges, or boots. I opted for lighter fabrics that are machine washable.
Skirts: These are also easy and can be paired with a collared shirt, blouse, or cami and cardigan. I also love the flirty shape.
Athletic wear: I am not against a mom wearing athletic wear (hello, its comfy), as long as it involves exercising. If you run by the store after going to gym, or just need to run a few errands, by all means wear what you have on. Just be sure it coordinates and looks put together. A ratty old shirt and a pair of worn out sweat pants may not give you the look you are wanting.
Long Sleeved Tees: I love these with a pair of jeans and flats, or skinnies and boots. Either way accessorize with your favorite bag, watch or pair of stud earrings. You can be casual and still look like you put effort into your outfit. Plus, it gives you room to move when chasing the little ones!
Patterned Chambray: Chambray is a big trend right now and for good reason. They can be paired with darker denim, khakis, patterned ankle pants, skirts, etc. They are also comfortable.
Cardis & Hoodies: I am a big fan of cardigans both at home and running errands. I think cardigans look great with just about anything and if the color is neutral you can pair with all kinds of items in your wardrobe. Hoodies are also great for a rainy day, lounging at home, or exercising. I don't think moms have to be in a dress & heels all day everyday. Wearing a hoodie with jeans and chucks is okay too!

If you're a mom, what are you wardrobe favorites?

+ I was not compensated for this post. I genuinely love all items chosen.
