As a personal stylist, there quite a few things that I could recommend to every fashionable mom. 1) Skinny jeans. You can wear them with flats, heels, boots; dress them up or dress them down. No matter your shape, you can make these work with proper styling. 2) A scarf. Scarfs can add dimension and interest to an outfit and can be worn many different ways.

How do you make shopping for your family's clothes affordable?

Finley

I only have one 18-mo old son, so shopping for him isn't too out-of-control. We never pay full-price and stick to sales at Gap, H&M, Zara, etc. I've also found some bargains at consignment or re-sale shops, but generally think you can get the same prices for a brand new item on-sale. The best answer would be to re-use old clothing with a little bit of handy alterations. Unfortunately, I'm not very good with the sewing machine, so I can't make an adult man's flannel into kids' pajamas. I'll leave that to the more clever moms out there... {mommy chic} design. style. kids. life.

Do you have suggestions to help dads more comfortably participate in "mommy and me" events?

Finley

My husband won't go to mommy-and-me events when he has a day off to take our son. There should be daddy-and-me events offered for all the stay at home dads out there these days! Dads are parents too! :-)
