Fashion Rules by a Wifey + Stylish Mom: Fashion Rule No. 1

Hello everyone!

Being comfortable as a fashion mom and wife is equally as important to me as being stylish and chic when needed.  We can all agree there are times when you don’t feel like getting dressed but you want to look ‘haute’. I’ve always believed that there are certain outfits you should wear on the weekends that aren’t frumpy – outfits you can wear on the evenings to volunteering at your child’s school or stopping at Panera for a quick bite – there are some fashion rules.

Fashion Rules by a Wifey + Stylish Mom | Fashion Rule No. 1. No matter the time of season, always carry a lightweight scarf in your tote.  It can be a patterned scarf, solid scarf or even an infinity scarf.  The scarf serves as an added style layer on the go. You can choose to wear it or tie it to your tote.

Here are a few of our top 5 favorite scarfs to be on-the-go as a Wifey + Stylish Mom!
