What I Wore Real Mom Style: Transitioning Into Fall

Fall is slowly coming, even though we are in a heat wave, so I have been looking for ways to transition my summer pieces into fall. I love my maxi dresses and have no intention of packing them away any time soon so I have been thinking of ways to help them transition into fall. We had open house at school and this it the outfit I wore with  my new owl necklace from Kohl’s that I LOVE!

This post is about real moms who have real style. While we all fall into the jeans and t-shirt rut we are encouraging our fellow moms to take the time to dress their best and rock it like the rock star moms they are! Did you look especially good this week, were the other moms at the playground complimenting your outfit? Share the look that worked for both potty training, the playground and coffee with a friend and let’s inspire each other with some real mom fashion!
