Six Chic and Casual Looks for Chasing After Kids

YOU are a professional juggler. You juggle kids, husbands, houses, cleaning, cooking, schedules… It’s tough to look stylish on top of all that. It really is!

I always try to put looks together that are easy and versatile. But, I also have to consider function. Can I really wear this while juggling?? If the answer is no, I’ll skip it!  I thought it might be helpful to share some of these stylish and functional outfit ideas.

Look #1 | Turtleneck & Cardigan

This look is a little dressier, but you could still wear it for most of your mom duties. I’m wearing these Moussy Vintage jeans with a white turtleneck cropped sweater. I threw on my favorite cardigan and some Saint Laurent boots I got on major sale. They’re sold out, but here is a similar pair. You can shop more affordable options below. I always think that wearing a hat can instantly elevate your style so I added this Rag & Bone felt hat to complete the look.

Look #2 | Comfortable Boots & Joggers

I featured this look in this post. It’s casual but chic and so comfortable. Wear this to pick up or drop off the kids at school, run a quick errand, or just lounge around the house. My joggers are by Norma Kamali and I just love all of her stuff. (Once you experience the fabric, you’ll understand why.) You can see me wearing more of her pieces here and here. I paired the joggers with a black tee that can be worn off the shoulder. I finished off the functional outfit with some super comfortable boots by ECCO and you’re ready to chase kids! If it’s cool where you are, throw on a camel trench as I did above.

Look #3 | Suede Jacket & Jeans

I am in love with this look. I’m wearing a pair of my favorite jeans from Express with Vince Camuto booties, the same turtleneck sweater from look #1, and this gorgeous suede jacket. I added this gorgeous Henri Bendel backpack to finish the look off. The vintage looking suede jacket gives it this cool girl vibe and the rich green backpack adds something different and unexpected.

Look #4 | Blazer With Sneakers

This look is the easiest to recreate and probably the most versatile. I’m wearing some distressed jeans (wear plain dark wash if you don’t like distressing) with a white tee and blazer. I paired it with some metallic sneakers but if you needed to dress it up you could throw on some pumps.

Look #5 | Chambray Shirt & Jeans

This look is about as easy as it gets. Wear this pretty chambray shirt with the same jeans I wore in look #4, and these gorgeous python mules. Because of the heels, this look works best for dinner but if you wanted to throw on the metallic sneakers, that works too! If you don’t have a chambray top, you could also wear a white button down.

Look #6 | Sweater With Leggings

Who doesn’t love wearing comfortable leggings? In this look, I’m wearing SUPER flattering Spanx leggings that really suck everything in. I paired it with this layered 2-in-1 sweater. It’s sold out but you can find similar options below. Then I layered a short sleeve Barefoot Dreams cardigan. To finish off the looks I added some brown boots (similar below), a hat, and dainty jewelry.

  1. Can you leave some other bootie options? I am just not sure that $1,000 boots are accessible for most moms. The link you shared still shows the Theo Bootie, which is quite pricey. Thanks!
