{SAHM Style} Fall into Real Clothes

Sometimes it's really hard to put on "real" clothes when you work at home and school drop off is your only time away from the house. I've discussed motivation to dress as a SAHM before but something about this season change is making it tres difficile to keep up appearances.

I'm mostly unpacked except for winter clothes. I wake up when it's still dark outside so I'm stumbling around in a pre-coffee haze looking for layers and scraps to piece together and keep warm. Blah blah. Whine. Whine. Everything is different. Fall malaise. Grumble.

I haven't reverted to black yoga pants but I see them and I'm tempted by them every morning. I'm not ready to go down that road yet. I'm afraid I'll never want to get out of them. It's also a slippery slope. Yoga pants one day and nightgowns with slippers the next or at least that's what I imagine happened to that school drop mom who wears her pjs.

I'm settling for the other mom staple. Jeans. It's nice to pull them out.  It has been a nice long break. Far too hot to wear them when we arrived in Atlanta. Fall have been beautifully comfortable. I'm a summer loving girl but these mild temps have been pretty awesome too. I'll take it!

I gathered some of my favorites to accompany the look and help me beat the Fall blahs.

Sequins because it's like wearing the party! 

Ankara. It's the print that helps me match without having to actually think about it. Blue in top. Blue tank. Blue jeans. 

Metallic silver booties. Old as they are, they still look good. They go with everything. Plus, they add height and are pretty comfortable to walk in.

Now I'm all set to hit the streets. Maybe I'll take myself out for coffee and a donut. Treat myself. I deserve it. Another day dressed in "real" clothes.

How are you handling the season change?

The Ankara trend is just to cool. I love how you paired it with the sequin top making the ankara print pop. Nicely done!

Very chic! Our school drop off consists of a line of cars, there's no where to park so the parents don't get out, they creep along till they're in front of the door to drop the kids off. I admit I often do it in sweats lol.
I loooooove the booties and sequin tank. Sparkle for any day is a win!

Oh wow this jacket is absolutely stunning and perfect. I love it more than I could explain.

That top is seriously cute. I have a few similar pieces and have been racking my brain as to how to style it. Great casual look.
