As a mom I give up enough of my life everyday for my family so I made a promise to myself to step away from the easy tee shirt and jeans, yoga pants, plain and simple mom look and take time to pick out a cute outfit. Don’t get me wrong most of the time you can catch me in a pair of Tory Burch Millers, Jandals , or a cute pair of slip on sneakers with an oversized tee and nike shorts, I’m normal. But 9 times out of 10 I will do this one thing for myself to feel somewhat put together while my kids are acting like complete hooligans in public.
Getting dressed up doesn’t always mean getting DRESSED UP in an itchy polyester dress and awkwardly looking like a 1950’s Stepford Wife. Taking the time to simply put together an outfit other than a basic tee and yoga pants IS getting dressed up, lets not overcomplicate things. Putting a little extra time into yourself in the morning picking out your outfit for the day might just help you have a better day. Its crazy what feeling good about yourself/ how you look can do to your outlook on everyday obstacles and your confidence.
I wanted to share with you how to go from playdate to dinner with one outfit and how to wear sneakers with a dress.
I remember the first time I tried sneakers with a dress. At first I felt uncertain but oddly very comfortable at the same time. There is no rule book when it comes to sneakers with dresses but I’ll share my tips on the subject.
Now we don’t want to go straight to tennis shoes here. Your best shoe is going to be a slip on sneaker or maybe even a pair of chucks. I’d go with a black pair to keep things simple, for now.
Choose your dresses wisely. No princess gowns, overly puffy, or too formal dresses….just don’t. Although I have seen it pulled off once! I had the opportunity to shoot my friend’s wedding and she killed it in her wedding gown and hot pink rhinestone chucks.

I love this dress! The lace up details and black trim stole my heart. This is a great look to run errands in or playdate with the kidos. Then by night switch out your shoes and boom!!!! Date night/girls night out ready.
This dress can be extremely casual and with a quick switch of shoes and accessories you are ready to slay.
