How a Real 40 Something Really Dresses Casually

I’m a woman on the go, go, go! Like every other woman right? This is pretty much my “mom” uniform. If I’m not a little more dressed for appointments in NYC then I am out in my suburban town running around looking like this. It’s basically my fall uniform. Just today I hoped in my car as soon as the kids got on the bus and ran to Costco, Target, Old Navy (son needed some sweats for school), a doctor appointment, got the car washed and made it back just in time to greet the kids again.

I need to be comfortable and I want to look good at the same time. I also didn’t want to style my hair, so that’s when a hat comes in handy (my hair wasn’t dirty, it just wasn’t behaving like I wanted it to). I was not really a huge fan of the lace up trend until I saw this plaid top at Madwell. Now I have changed my mind. I have to wear comfortable jeans at all times so my Old Navy Rockstars never let me down (I own several pairs).
