Any working mother knows how hectic it can be to get the kids ready for school while attempting to look somewhat put together, yourself. I certainly do as a mom to two sons—Alexander, 2 (pictured with me at an event last year) and Lucas, 6. With my life being fashion-centric, I am constantly trying to find a balance between my forward-thinking work outfits and those that are more appropriate for dropping my kids off at school (goodbye heels and leather). One thing I have learned is that no matter how much time I have to get myself dressed, I always rely on certain wardrobe staples that are essentially foolproof. Trust me, you will want to make yourself familiar with them, too.
