I Love a great coat. Long coats are beautiful and I do have two but sometimes I want something a little less imposing and casual. I found this amazing wool coat at Savers for $10 and it was during their 50% off sale so I bought it for $5!! This wool coat is by The Gap and would easily have cost over $100. I also love that it has a hood for some functionality and visual interest. Not to mention, the zipper is another time saver. I love button coats but it is nice to have something quick as an alternative. You moms out there know that sometimes every minute counts because just as you are walking out the door someone has to go potty or needs a diaper change.
Here is a closer look. The result is an elegantly coiffed hair style in about 10 seconds.
Since I have fine and thin hair, my hair does NOT have the lovely volume on top unless I blow dry it out. I almost always take out some hair on top for interest and volume. Today I parted off a two inch section and tied all the rest up then I combed and pinned the parted section off to the side. Now the hair does not look blah and flat. Fun pins can add a touch of glamour for a time saving mommy do.
Cuffing these skinnies give the ensemble a more polished look. It also allows me to show the adorable little knitted back and sides of the shoe!
I bought these necklaces from Forever 21. Believe it or not they are one necklace made to look like several. It definitely saves me time from having to select many necklaces and get the lengths/color right. This is yet another trick I find that it helps my busy mommy self stay on trend. I try to find versions of the sometimes time consuming trend-already done.
