Fashion for Busy Moms

Guest Author - Dina Tarek

The modern woman is a jean-of-all-trades. Juggling work, kids, and managing everyone’s life including her own can be hectic. Being fashionable is one more task she has to add to her to-do list. However, being ever stylish does not mean you need to have heaps of time on your hands; it’s as easy as a few simple steps.

Classics are a Busy Woman's Best Friend
While it might be tempting to wear fun trends, sometimes it can just be too tricky to keep up. Risks can turn into major faux pas and will distract from a complete pulled together look. Neutral colors, classic cuts, tailored clothes, and minimalism throughout the styling process are guaranteed to make it all just a bit easier for you.

Fashion On the Go
To avoid complicated and time consuming shopping trips, plan the shopping trip beforehand. Keep a small note card with you at all times. As you cook, drive the kids to school, watch TV, or type up that memo, make note of any fashion ideas that come to mind.

Spotted a cute vest on that news host? Write it down. Love the colors of that maxi dress you spotted in the shop window? Take note of where the store is. This way whenever you go shopping you won't have to drown in a pile of clothes to find something you like.

Clean Closet
A cluttered closet can be distracting and frustrating. Picture this: You wake up early in the morning and you're so tired you forgot who Versace was. You open the closet and everything is piled up, it makes you hate the fact that you have to pick something to wear. You mutter your usual "I never find anything to wear" complaint and quickly grab that white shirt you've worn everyday for the past two weeks.

So much for a fashionable morning. To avoid this, occasionally check your closet for anything you haven't worn for over three months and get rid of it. Donate the good pieces and throw out the hopeless ones. Organize your closet in categories; shirts, tops, trousers. You can even stack similar colors together. Don't forget to hang any pieces that need to be hanged and keep your belts and scarves on hangers as well.

Fabulously Fashionable Mom – Poppy Lou Products
Being a mother is no easy task. However, the added responsibility does not mean less style (think Katie Holmes after Suri Cruz and Angelina Jolie after Shilo Pitt). Poppy Lou, the Australian label that is just as cute as its name, is here to the rescue. The first impression of their products: unique and practical and we know these are two qualities that rarely coincide.

The attention to detail and quality make their products truly valuable. With their durable fabrics and earthy tones, their designer nappy bags and handbags are almost too pretty to use, but their compartments make them extremely versatile. They also have school bags, library bags, gift sets, children’s must haves, hair accessories, and boutique clothing. If you would like to see something too pretty to be true, check out the petti skirt.

For an even sweeter touch, they provide free gift wrapping and a personalized gift card that would put a smile on anyone's face as soon as they catch a glimpse.

For the perfect choice for mothers, mothers to be, and busy fashion lovers take a look at Poppy Lou.
