As a matter of fact, it’s the best thing that can happen to you. Yet, you don’t have too much time for yourself. Time is something that you don’t have.

The thing is that you can achieve style success in the least amount of time. Here are a few easy style tips for the working mom.
Invest in versatile blouses
So, you work outside of the home for income. There is nothing wrong with that. Almost all moms are working moms. Women don’t hold themselves back in their career anymore and we can only salute them. In Canada, for example, has a high female labour participation. The fact is that there are more working women in Canada as compared to the United States. But enough about that. Just like every other mother, you head over to the office. Right after you get out from work, you go to pick up the kids. You can’t wear sandals or shorts at the workplace, so you put on a nice dress. The dress makes you look professionals, but it doesn’t provide you too much comfort. Wear a pencil skirt and a blouse instead.
A blouse is one of the most versatile closet staples. This piece of clothing can transform you into a stylish woman, providing intrigue that few garments are able to. If you have money to spare, invest in a bunch of versatile blouses. Make sure that you have a tunic in your closet. Tunics never go out of fashion, not to mention that they flatter every figure. No matter if you’re tall or short, the tunic will look great on you. A white or dark gray tunic can be successfully worn at the office. And at home. If you need to go grocery shopping, go with a tunic. It’s loose and comfy.
**Match your hairstyle to your outfit **
Maybe you don’t have all the time in the world, but you can spare a moment to style your hair. You can look different every single day thanks to a few small adjustments. If you have medium to long hair, pull your hair up to a ponytail. Create a center part, lift your hair up, and apply a little bit of hairspray. Last but not least, secure the ponytail with an elastic. You can also use bobby pins. This will take about 5 minutes of your time. Another thing you can do is make a simple bun. All you have to do is pull your locks back into a low side ponytail, separate 2 sections, pull the braid aside, and wrap the braid around the bun. It’s as simple as that. If you these options too complicated, then add one or two bobby pins after your blow dry it.
**Add style with jewelry **
Jewelry is a very personal thing. Take the sapphire engagement ring you received. It tells the story of your engagement to your significant other. The thing is that all engagement rings tell a beautiful story, not to mention that they are beautiful regardless of the size of the stone. You can wear other pieces of jewelry, you know. But why should you? Because personal ornaments add style and color to your outfit. No matter how dull or unattractive your attire is, jewelry will make it look interesting and expensive. You’re a working mother, so you have an exceptional sense of fashion. These accessories will help you look like a non-amateur:
Discreet necklace – it can be difficult to choose a necklace for yourself. Money isn’t the issue, but all the options. Look for something discreet. A necklace made out of silver or gold will make you look exceptional at work. You should never be afraid to wear the necklace with a bold pattern. Keep in mind to keep things simple.
Bracelets and watches – if you have a sapphire ring, then chances are that you don’t want a small emerald ring. No problem. You can wear a bracelet. It’s classy and it will certainly get people’s attention. Should you go for something bold? Or should you opt for something more delicate? The latter option is preferable. Wear a bracelet that is fancy and delicate at the same time. Watches are worth wearing too. It’s rude to check your phone all the time, not to mention that a timepiece makes it look like you put effort into dressing.
Reach out for a bright bag
Most women stay away from bright accessories. This is probably because they don’t like to draw attention upon themselves. Since you’re a working mom, you’re used to getting attention, either from your co-workers or from family members. Have you ever thought about carrying around a colored bag? The simple addition of a colored accessory makes you stand out, even if you’re wearing just a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. With a brightly-colored bag, you’ll have lots of fun. The accessory provides you freedom of movement. You can keep your necessities close and overwhelm. The best place to keep the bag is close to the door. When you leave for work, you’ll be encouraged to grab it. On the contrary, you won’t want to leave without the precious accessory.
When you’re a working mom, you’re always on switching modes. One minute you’re doing this and one minute you’re doing that. Maintaining a sense of style isn’t impossible. You just have to take a pragmatic approach to dressing and accessorizing. Putting in a little bit of effort is necessary. Will looking good and being fashionable make you feel better? Yes, it will.
