Readers, this is my dear friend Amber. Some of you may remember her from this article where she chastised me for my original position on over-the-knee boots.
"Let your moms be hot! Tell your moms they have a RIGHT to be hot!"
Yes. And now Amber is a hot-mom herself, of the crazy-adorable baby Harlow. And when we met up with Amber & the fam recently, her outfit made me a bit nostalgic.
I remember after R was born, when the weekend came I would gleefully don my high, high heels and get all glammed up, knowing that my husband was there to do the baby lifting. Even if we were just going to Target. As R got bigger, our weekends started to be less baby-focused and more toddler focused (key difference: chasing) and I stopped rocking my sky-high heels.
I miss those heels.
So if you can tear your eyes off of Harlow and her insanely cute flower headband (reason enough to try for a third child, right?)...let's chat about Amber's outfit.
We are huge fans of the Houlihans here at ANMJ and while I personally couldn't rock the Tatum booties, I think they could be easily swapped out for short, flat boots. (Or just wait for a weekend, those of you not chasing anyone yet). But what I'm finding totally inspiring is the faux-fur jacket for moms.
While I think a white faux-fur jacket would be slightly insane for most of us, I do love how a faux-fur jacket would immediately dress up any jeans-and-a-tee combo. (Or cargos and a tee). It's like the most lux version of an interesting sweater (which we first introduced here). Or just add a dash of lux with a faux-fur accessory.
In addition to the Juicy one that Amber's wearing, here are few faux-fur pieces that might be worth a try (and best of all, most are on sale!):
