One of the troubles of being a part-time stay-at-home-mom and part-time teacher is that I need two outfits every day. First thing in the morning I get dressed professionally and then when I get home mid-morning, I need to change quickly before sticky kid hands reach me! I typically take off my dress clothes and throw on a t-shirt and sweats. But of course this doesn't make me feel very good about my appearance, especially if we need to run errands that day!
One idea I had to remedy this was to keep a similar vibe with both of my outfits for the day. Maybe the same color scheme and/or same jewelry and/or the same cardigan. That way I'm sort of only thinking of one outfit for the day. When I manage to do this, the results are usually pretty good!
Here's some example pics I snapped one day back in the winter!
