Hi, this is Bryn Taylor with the Restylist. And today we're going to talk about how not to look like a soccer mom. Though no offense to soccer moms out there but there is a stigma attached to the term. And so there are ways that you can dress comfortably as a mom on the go without actually looking like a soccer mom. Some really basic things to avoid are fleeces, hooded sweatshirts, mom jeans, and running sneakers. Those things are a definite no-no. So here we have a colored skinny jeans which have some great stretch to them. So they almost feel like a legging and they're going to be able to allow you to run around, chase after your kids, do all your errands, while still maintaining their shape. So then we've paired it with this striped t-shirt which is in a soft slovey cotton, so it means it's still casual and still wearable, but still washable. However it's just a little bit nicer than your ratty college t-shirt. Then we've covered it with this long cardigan that adds a pop of color and is fun with color blocking. And we finished with a couple of pendant necklaces and this great large, over-sized leather bag. Again, something a little more fun than your standard tote bag and still totally functional. Lastly we're going to talk about footwear. Now, of course you are running all around the place, you're on the go all the time so you need to have comfortable shoes. But that doesn't mean you have to go for the running sneakers. Here's a really nice option. It's a patent loafer. It's very stylish but also really functional and you can just slip it on and go. This is Bryn Taylor with the Restylist. Thanks for tuning in.
