good look for less, EXPRESS!

Today's EXPRESS consult is for Valerie... she is a super busy stay-at-home that wants to look pulled together... you know; cool, calm and collected! She emailed me and said she mostly likes to wear dresses and is also loving leggings this season.

If you read my blog, you know I am not a huge "dress" person, I don't know why. I love the way they look... but mostly on others! So it was a stretch for me personally to come up with some fun casual dress-based outfits. But I had a ton of fun with it... let's take a look at the outfits! Even though I don't consider myself to be a "dress" person - I would wear these outfits for sure!

Leggings are a great staple for a busy mom... make sure to stock up on some great tunic-length tops to pair them with like this one. Such a simple outfit formula... but very chic and classic!

A simple cotton dress can go along way... this one for instance is perfect for spring or fall, or like this with a cardigan for fall. Easy-peasy! I love the fun of adding purple tights with this outfit. An unexpected dash of sophistication!

Plaid is back! In full effect... I love this simple dress and the tie at the waist gives the dress great shape. Add in some fun accessories and a military style jacket and voila!

Interested in learning more about my wardrobe consultation services?

Ooh, I love these outfits as I am very much a dress girl! And hey, that last dress looks like the one I have in my 30x30!

I love all of these looks and have been coveting that last Old Navy gingham dress! It's so cute. I'm very sad that the bow necklace is no longer available! I clicked to buy it!
