good look for less, EXPRESS!

Today's EXPRESS consult is for Amanda... she is a teacher by day and mom by, well... the rest of the time. She wanted looks that were casual and trendy, yet age appropriate (early 30's) for her busy lifestyle outside of the classroom. Think: activities and sporting events for her kids, spending time with friends and errands. Let's take a look at the looks, shall we?

I love the simple but refined look of this outfit.  A top that has a little bit of a flowy nature is very forgiving and also right on trend.  These jeans are Gap's "straight" fit and are perfect if you aren't into an ultra skinny look but still want something you can tuck into boots.

Pretty much you know that I am ALL about Gap jeans, there is something for everyone and in general they offer the same fit and finishes of the high end brands, just at about 25% of the price.  Their Long and Lean fit, featured below, is a great style for all body types and very flattering.  I added some simple and cozy layers, perfect for winter!

Leggings are like the magic bullet for busy moms... they are just as comfy as yoga pants, but can be jazzed up with a simple tunic and fun flats to pull off a major chic look with tons of comfort.  Truly the best of both worlds.

Happy Shopping Amanda!
