Quick Go-To Outfit for Moms.

I wore the quickest, easiest, most pulled together outfit known to man yesterday and I vlogged all about it, just for you.  That’s the kinda gal I am.

It was late, so I might look a little startled in the video.  That’s okay, the outfit is still cute.

Quick Go-to-Outfit:

Shirt dress: Target $15.99 {I got it on sale, it’s normally $25}

Leggings: Yummie Tummie $76

Shoes: Black Leather ballet flats from Nordstrom Rack $35

Am I the only one who has a go-to outfit for those days when life just happens really fast?  The first week of back-to-school has thrown me a curve ball and I need all the quickie outfits I can get.

  1. Leadia Jarvis :

    I love your fashion vlogs. I wore an outfit very similar to this yesterday. Somehow a shirtdress and leggings makes me feel girly ;) And much more put together! A plus when I have to drive 5 kids all over creation .
    P.S. Bought the Kmart tunic and I LOVE it!

    • Petit Elefant :

      It’s because shirt dresses and leggings are made of awesome. THANK YOU!

      p.s. the tunic is adorable, right?

  2. Carina :

    Those leggings are BANANAS AWESOME. I’ve been telling anyone who will listen how incredible the Yummie Tummie leggings are.

    • Petit Elefant :

      They ARE bananas awesome. So much so that I’m wearing them again today. Totally hide cellulite which is 100% okay with me.

  3. Jessica (@It's my life...) :

    Well my to go outfit is jeans and a cute t-shirt, but you might be on to something here! Going to have to go check all these options out!

  4. Petit Elefant :

    It’s just as easy as jeans and a t-shirt, I swear. It’s very cute and easy.

  5. noelle :

    i just bought those leggings. i mean if carina says they’re good, that’s all the gospel i need.

    • Petit Elefant :

      Noelle, you’ll worship the ground she walks on when you put them on. I die.

  6. Rachel Ferrucci :

    I love it! I have to check out the Yummie Tummie leggins- you look so cute and I want to be cute too…totally copying you xoxox

    • Allison :

      Copy away mama, it’s the easiest outfit out there. Get some leggings, they’re the best.

  7. @sweetbabboo :

    Oh my gosh, just catching back up on your blog and had to say that I have that dress from Target too and it is absolutely my go-to outfit. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve given up on everything else when trying to hurry out of the house and throw it on because I know it will work.

    I’m larger chested so I do the unbuttoning with a tank under, but otherwise it is an absolute fave.


    • Allison :

      Isn’t it the best? I’m so glad you have one and love it too! Good call on the tank top underneath, love it!
