Do you watch Stacy and Clinton?
This is what Stacy and Clinton would look like after seeing me on the street.
I must admit that I have become a little obssesed with Stacy and Clinton and What Not to Wear. Their ability to dramatically transform the way a person looks by merely changing their wardrobe truly amazes me. The hair and makeup is amazing, too, but Stacy and Clinton are able to make chubby women look thin, hip-heavy women look proportionate, women with boyish bodies look like they have hourglass shapes - you get my gist. Anyway, the last few shows I have watched, Stacy and Clinton have referenced a style I have never heard of - mom on the go. Now, their version of mom on the go is a little different from mine. Their version does not include yoga pants, oversized t-shirts, or even gym shoes. Nope, their version generally includes a cute dress (they love a microfiber wrap dress!), adorable shoes, an awesome bag, and a "completer piece", i.e. structured jacket or sweater. It is a very put-together look that is supposed to be easy for the mom to throw on in the morning.
I have been thinking lately that I should buy some cute "on the go" outfits, but the whole process is very overwhelming to me, a person who has worn my own version of the style for over ten years. I had no idea where to start. But I had a lightbulb moment reading 35's post. What could be more "mom on the go" than unwashed hair?
I'm buying myself a can of Pssst!
Sorry, Stacy and Clinton! I tried, I really did!
