Looks for Moms on the Go (and on a Budget)

Mothers have the hardest job on the planet so it makes sense that most don't have the time to put a lot of energy into what to wear when they are busy doing a million other things. Shopping can be a little tricky for moms since they need to be able to throw most of their wardrobe into the washing machine and not worry about dry cleaning. I have taken some reasonable priced pieces and put together six outfits with personality and polish that are easy to take care of. I started with ten items (mostly basics) and mixed and matched for different occassions.
1. Harvest Fields Blouse, Quicksilver, $29.75
2. Women's Smocked Printed Chiffon Top in Khaki Print, Old Navy, $34.95
3. 70's V Neck Cardigan, Oasis, $ 27 (Sale!)
4. Women's Mossimo Supply Co., Orson Strappy Flats in Brown, Target, $19.99
5. Urban Expressions Blake Tote in Brown,, $ 59.95
6. Women's The Dreamer Bootcut Jeans in Dark Night, Old Navy, $34.50
7. Kate New Bootcut Pant in Leigh Stripe, Loft, $79.50
8. Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Long Sleve Thermal Top in white, Target, $14.99
9. Triange Pendant Necklace, Forever 21, $3.36
10. Filigree Teardrop Earrings in gold, Forever 21, $1.96

Only the dress pants from Loft  require dry cleaning. While that can be a pain, it's important to have at least one dressier option in your wardrobe for special events or a night out. Below are six ways to pull these items together to suit your busy life.
