Uniform for a Mom With Responsibilities

Slowly dawning on me is the fact that next week is one FULL week, full of "mom responsibilities". In a way, I'm looking forward to it, which is a good thing because, ready or not, it's coming. And, you know it's coming, last night I started thinking about what to wear.

Just to simplify the thought process, I decided to use a uniform template. Now I may at the last minute on any given day decide to wear a dress or capris, but here's my current plan:

  • Skirt: It's supposed to be in the 80s, so I will probably rotate through my 3 straight, below-the-knee, no-hose required skirts.
  • Top: Probably something with a collar, but maybe a tee or tank.
  • Layer: While I may wear a cardigan on the day that I am just the chauffeur, the other days I have more official responsibilities and I will undoubtably feel more confident in a tailored jacket.
  • Shoes: The WEDGES! I'm so happy they're comfortable!

Dressed in this, a form of Business Casual, I can be both comfortable and respectable. I remember what I used to think about stay-at-home-moms, and I really don't care to feed those misconceptions.
