FashionMom picks- 18 Affordable Classics for Fashionmoms everywhere!

We often read recommended lists of  top clothing and accessory choices for women.
This list below is the most recent from In Style magazine.

Black Opaque Tights
Flared Jeans
 Red Ballet Flats
Striped Shirts
Leopard Scarf
Oversize Watch
Black Jacket
Statement Necklace
Black Dress
Classic Trench

As a working mom or stay at home mom, some things need to be a bit more practical. Some items on the lists we should keep but there are some that we can tweak!
 One item I have read about on past lists is the white shirt.
I have at least 3 white shirts in my wardrobe but I have not worn them in a very long time. I "think" I will wear them one day. They really need to be at Goodwill.
 As the mom of a toddler I  just cannot entertain the thought of what would happen to a white shirt on the average day.

I have seen a lot of moms out there who are so tired and stressed from focusing on their kids and not on themselves. We always put ourselves and outward appearance last. Time to get it together moms!

These are the items we can wear to work and play. They can withstand the puling, food spills and park runs. And we can still look hot!

Here is the list of my picks below along with 7 extra items. I provided links to some of the items from websites around the country  The best part ? It will not make a large dent on your budget! You can mix and match these 18 items all the time. This is all you will need to look pulled together.

 Instead of a full trench try a Cropped Trench- Victoria's Secret

Striped Tee( long or short sleeve)- $29 bucks at the Gap!
