When you're a mom, practicality is a first priority. You are on the go all the time--play dates, school functions, sports, tutoring, activities, etc. There are many must have accessories that a mom should have that have been mentioned previously and all are standard staple accessories--a great handbag, scarves, boots, belts. All of these are great things that a fashionable mom should have.
But, in my opinion the one piece in my closet that I have found both PRACTICAL AND FASHIONABLE are my maxi dresses. A great maxi dress is versatile enough to take through all the seasons with ease. They are easy to layer for the cooler months and fantastic on their own for the warmer months. They are comfortable enough to take you from daytime activities or running around to night time activities of dinners with friends or girls night outs (do we even get those anymore?). A great maxi dress can be dressed up for the office or dressed down for a casual weekend look. I have quite a few maxi dresses, but each one was under $20. And at that price, to have a piece that is comfortable, fashionable, versatile and holds endless possibility, it is a piece worth investing in!
