Back to School — Yes, Moms, for You Too

Let’s face it: back to school is a stressful time in any teen’s life. Rushing to Office Depot to get pencils, pens, etc.; digging up your 20-pound text books, and of course, putting together the perfect wardrobe! But who’s that one person who not only supplies the cash and transport, but unconditional love? Mom! Back to School need not only apply to the kid! So, in honor of the long hours of homework you both do, her’s my and Kimmy’s picks for what you both need to look fab this fall.

You can never go wrong with jeans. Ever.

For daughter:

Levis-leopard-print-skinny-jeansLEVI’S leopard-print skinnies ($34). Printed jeans are definitely a teen essential, not to mention one of our faves, leopard! Pair them with a plain flowy tank and flats, and you’re ready to go!

For mom:

Levis-boyfriend-jeans-made-and-craftedThese are some amazing tapered boyfriend jeans from LEVI’S MADE & CRAFTED ($198). These babies are not only super comfy, but super comfy (get it? they’re comfy!). They’re also great at making your tummy look slimmer, and are a perfect solution to short legs (Show off the ankle to maximize the look!). You can wear them with a tunic — like this one from SANCTUARY ($78) or tee and some ankle booties for a casual day out!

Every gal needs a cozy cardi.

For mom:

Maje-leather-cardigan

This wool-blend cardigan from MAJE ($295) has got it all for fall. The wine-colored piece has some adorable patches — so you can wear your leather on your sleeve! Pair this with jeans and tee as shown, or snazz it up with a pencil skirt and pump.

For daughter:

bdg-knit-cardigan-urban-outfittersHere’s a super chunky-knit sweater ($69) from Urban Outfitters’ brand: BDG. We’re featuring the same maroon color as our pick for mom, but if you’re not too keen on being twinsies, the cardi also comes in three other colors. There’s also a twist detail going down the back that adds a little spice of uniqueness. Style this with a crop tee, cut-offs, a flannel, a skater dress, jeans, ANYTHING!

Work it out with these workshirts.

For daughter:
dailylook-chambray-shirtWe’re loving this chambray shirt ($29) from DAILYLOOK! It’s a definite staple in any fashion forward female’s closet; for it can be paired with jeans, put over a maxi-dress, or even styled with a sunflower-print skirt!

 

 

 

 

For mom:

gap-work-shirt-pinstripe
This adorable pinstripe workshirt from GAP ($54) is the perfect workshirt alternative! Easy to layer with a v-neck sweater or the above cardigan, it’s actually super versatile.

And we’ve all got those bad hair-days, right?

For mom:

rag-and-bone-pecan-fedora
This funky fedora is from one of our personal faves, RAG & BONE ($175).

For daughter:

pacsun-neff-nude-beanie
Here’s a cozy-chic Neff beanie ($16) from PACSUN. This is the absolute cherry on top for any fall look.
