Mommy Chic.

A childhood friend of mine recently sent me a message stressing her frustration about looking stylish but mommy proof at the same time. Ever since becoming a mommy, Rebecca basically lives in gym clothes for day-to-day activities. She is still young and hip, and deserves to look the part of a young, hip mom. Her baby boy is turning 2 in July, and she wants an outfit that will show off her personal style AND allow her to perform her mommy duties at his birthday bash. She asked me to put together a look for her that is "cute yet functional". Here's what I came up with:

I am all about the romper right now for two reasons. It is 1) incredibly comfortable and 2) really retro. Rebecca will be able to run around in this and not have to worry about being exposed like she would if she were wearing a skirt or a dress. I'm assuming some of the party will be taking place outside so stylish eyewear is a must (Ray-Ban aviators are so classic). These Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges add a hint of "dressiness" (if that's a word) while not killing her feet. The accessories I kept simple so that they wouldn't be a huge distraction throughout the day. The bamboo hoops and stacked bangles fit Rebecca's bohemian style. There you have it: Mommy Chic! P.S. Happy Birthday Parker!
