You know how they talk about the many many MANY hats of a mom. The chef, the chauffer, the nurse, the teacher, the counselor, the doctor, and the list really is endless.
Well, who has the cash to pay for all those outfits? Not this girl! That’s for sure!
The good news is that there is a simple solution to help you dress the part of carpool in the morning and flawlessly transition for a hot hubby date night! All with making a few simple tweaks to a must have closet staple.
Start with the basics
The first and basically the only thing you need for all three of these outfits, is going to be a quaint staple like this Remi Long Sleeve Swing Dress from Cent’s of Style.
Starting with a timeless staple like this one is key when it comes to transitioning your outfit from school drop off, to brunch with the girls, to dinner out with hubby!
Think of it like a blank canvas. The Remi Long Sleeve Swing Dress from Cent’s of Style looks crazy cute no matter what you add and I am going to show you three different techniques to help you make this dress work for you no matter what your day has planned!
Then when you find a dress like this one and it completely meshes with your unique style and life, you HAVE to get it in more than one color! THEN when it comes in 17 different colors, how can you resist! And then there is more…
Make sure you are getting the best price!

You might have noticed that Pennies Into Pearls is not what some call a “fashion blog.” Nope. No one is trying to claim that it is.
But what I am hoping to do is introduce you to the idea that you really can find clothes that show you off. Clothes that help you feel beautiful! All at an affordable price. Helping you to live your dream life on less!
Dress it up
Let’s start our looks off with a little sass! How do you feel about that?
Times that you may want to feel a little sassy… date night, girls night out, PB&J lunch with the kids, really any time you feel the need to be a little fancy.
Fancy can be simple. Classy we will say. By adding some heels or ankle boots, the perfect statement necklace, and maybe a watch with a bracelet or two. You are ready to rock!
Can you even handle how pretty this Helda Floral Statement Necklace is? If you hurry you can snag one on sale for less than $15 right now. Since it’s normally priced around $20 (which again, is an already great deal!) you won’t want to wait!
I would say that a good 4 days out of the week I am in “grunge” mode. I mean I shower, most of the time… But I just get so busy that getting all glammed up is the last thing on my to-do list.
Throwing on your staple dress, layering it with a casually cute open faced hoodie, sweater, or vest, keeps things low key but gives you the “I’m totally rocking the mom life” look!
Brunch with the girls
A few steps up from the laid back look of mom life comes the lunch date outfit. Throw on some classic flats, a more neutral colored necklace, and then finish it off with a sweater.
Keeping things pretty, but a little toned down from the bling of date night.
All three looks can be fashioned by using essentially the same outfit but with a few minor adjustments. Making a fashionable mom life easily affordable!
I hope these tips help you think more about what you already have at home to transform one simple new dress into an entire new wardrobe!
