1 top, 3 outfits

Mandy On Duty Lifestyle Blog Washington DC

Stylish mom shopping tip 101 – fake it till you make it! So your wardrobe is limited but you can still find that one top that works with lots of things – in this case 3 bottoms. Your outfits can look new and great even if you’re recycling a top or your favorite pair of jeans.

This is especially important if you’re a stay at home mom because you’re tempted to live in your pjs forever! But you’ll need to go out at some point, so here’s how to look stylish even though you’d prefer to be in your comfy gear –  fake it till you make it!

Here are some easy steps:

Step 1) Buy a well fitted stylish flowy top. If you calculate that you can wear it with at least 3 different bottoms then it’s worth it.

Step 2) Get out a pair of your nicest most fitted jeans or black pants or skirt. It doesn’t need to be tight just fitted. If you only have a tight one put it on. It needs stretching anyway!

Step 3) Now here’s the “fake it” part – find a pair of heels that fit and wear them with the top and jeans. Wear the heels! Just wear the heels!

Repeat steps 1-3 whenever you need to leave the house to go appointments, get coffee, meeting up with friends etc… You’ll feel good about yourself!

p.s. If you trip in the heels pretend there was something in your way and keep strutting…or wobbling…you look great!

    I am really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?

    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
    other than that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.

    I’ll certainly be back.
