Mama on Duty :: Pink Blazer & Market Tote

Hello, my friends! Monday again, time to get back to the nitty-gritty of everyday life such as packing lunches, monitoring homework, driving to school, and of course, shopping for groceries. 😀 Most of the time, I go to grocery store during the week to avoid heavy traffic in the check out line. Some might ask, as a stay-home mom, do you ever need to dress up besides fancy parties and school events, even that, plenty show up in sneakers? My short answer to that question is “Yes”.

It is not so much so about wearing heels all the time, it is about feeling good all the time. Even the most effortless chic takes some effort. Take today’s outfit for example, it is pretty easy-going and quick to pull together: shirt, pants, blazer, boom! Don’t wear heels, fine, wear one of those platform sneakers, even Birkenstocks, you will look chic. The key to this look is, good grooming — well combed hair and clean make-up.

For the busy moms who has only five-minutes to get ready in the morning, my beauty tip du jour is comb your hair well and brush your eye brows before rushing out. Save the lipstick for after coffee, which you will be able to enjoy in front of your office desk or on a cool bench, like I did. 😀5S6A0196 5S6A0200 5S6A0230

A quick note on this Mansur Gavriel tote, in case you are eyeing on one: the leather is nice, a bit on the rigid side which makes it valuable to bends but hold up heavy weight very well. My bag was slightly marked in a couple of places during shipping, I couldn’t seemed to flatten or reshape them by putting weights on them. If I find a way to “erase” the markings, I will let you know.5S6A0148

Thank you so much for reading! Wish you a great week ahead! See you in my next post!

      Hi Coco! Pretty much, unless I know I will be doing a ton of walking like site-seeing. I feel very comfortable in heels but I know they are not for everyone. The good news is sneakers are super fashionable these days. 🙂

    Like your blazer! I have same style Dior earrings, but is pearl. Totally agree ” It is not so much so about wearing heels all the time, it is about feeling good all the time.” !
