I am super happy and excited to welcome my blogging friend Ashley to Mom Generations, who will be doing some fashion posts for me. Ashley has an eclectic money-saving blog, Frugal Coupon Living, where she features her own Frugal Fashion Friday outfits each week. She’s just an all-round amazing woman and I’m ecstatic she’s going to share some of her fashion love here!
So let’s talk fashion for Back to School… for YOU! 🙂
As we know, the few minutes before every one heads out the door can be the most chaotic of the day. Moms tend to worry about making sure everyone has their backpacks filled, lunchbox in hand, shoe laces tied and hair out of the face. Sometimes that stained shirt you fell asleep in the night before might be the same shirt you wear in the car drop off line adorned with a tossed-up bun above you head.
This year, make a promise to yourself. You can dress down and feel good, but add those earrings, put on a touch of lip gloss, and wrap yourself in a scarf to give yourself just a little touch of “feeling nice.”
Mom’s first day of school outfit doesn’t have to be high-end or the same clothes she would wear out with the girls later that night. Choose casual and comfy and add a few accessories to finish the outfit off.
