Playground Trends: Mom-Friendly Fall Fashion


A lot of moms, especially those of us who are stay at home or work from home, consider a day which includes a shower, makeup and clean clothes a major victory. And high heels? Maybe if there was no more of the we-are-late-again dashes or the we-have-to-leave-now-to-make-it-to-the after-school-whatchmacallit races or even the it’s-just-a-quick-stop-at-the-store hurdle. For those of us in the trenches of daily child-rearing, house managing and job juggling, following fashion trends can sometimes seem like a distant, but fond memory or sometimes, like a total, absolutely laughable fantasy.

But ladies, this is Dallas!

To be sure, from North Park, the Galleria to Highland Park Village and Neiman Marcus, there are plenty of places for the trendy gals, mamas included, in Big D who drape themselves in the latest whims of fashion.

And what about the rest of us?

Well at least we have some great places to find inspiration! And it’s easy and affordable to bring runway trends into a kid-friendly environment. In the words of fashion guru Tim Gunn, “make it work”; it’s about getting creative. Throw in an update or two somewhere, even if it is just a top here or a pair of shoes there. Maybe a killer necklace in the IT color of the season. Make like a fashion maven mama and check out these new fall pieces, all for under $150!
