Picking up a toddler in a fancy dress may not sound too practical, but it's a way of life for some mommies. Mothers who delight in running around social circles put up the appearance that there is always time for a blow-out and a pair of swanky shoes. Picture perfect, the mum can be inspiration to run a comb through that matted hair before hitting the carpool line — a school year's resolution to be sure! To get the look on the cheap and easy, mamas can sport a simple print frock and pair it with some funky footwear and sparkly jewelry. Slip dresses give off a sophisticated look while maintaining a flirty and youthful appeal. If it suits the outfit, tack on a belt to show off that slim waistline. If you choose to sport a simple black dress, slip on a coral necklace and a pair of cab-yellow platforms that are typically easier to manage than a regular heel. Pretty soon, the other moms will want to know which board you're heading this year.
