Whether she leaves her home for an office or not, every mom works. The challenge is stepping out in a functionally chic outfit. Finding a balance between fashionable and functional is possible if you have the right pieces to ensure success.

1 THE JACKET

Stuck in a rut? A tailored jacket is a secret weapon. It brings denim up a notch, polishes casual dresses, takes slim pants to the boardroom and can cover up a slouchy outfit. The trick is to find a jacket that suits your lifestyle and then have a local tailor nip and tuck your latest great find. Getting the perfect fit will elevate the final product way beyond its original price tag. As we transition to spring, a cropped trench or a bright blazer are two easy ways to add polish to any outfit.

2CREATIVE COMFORT

Let's face it, it's all about comfort. The key is to find a compromise between a trend and easy-to-wear clothing. A dress is perfect as it can be worn year-round with the addition of tights. Opt for a wrinkle-free material and a cut that is both polished and form fitting. I love the design of this two-in-one sweatshirt dress and it pairs perfectly with casual leggings or leather leggings for date night.

3THE CARRY ALL BAG

A large structured bag can accommodate all of your necessities. Ensure the top has a zipper to keep everything in place. You'll often see celebrities opting for a large designer handbag in lieu of a diaper bag. If you'd prefer a stylish diaper bag, Kate Spade's signature Stevie bag (LEFT) can be worn over the shoulder or tossed onto your stroller handles (thanks to special straps) and comes with a nylon changing pad.

Spring Trend Sneak Peek The Classic Shirtdress

Fashion's current penchant for shirting brings the classic shirtdress back to the forefront. This classic style borrows details from a man's shirt creating a sleek design whilst its clean lines provide an ideal canvas for spring's bold botanicals and vibrant colour palette. Buy it now and wear your shirtdress with tights or knee high boots.
