Now, it is not like I live the life of Posh and have to look cover-shot ready each morning at the bus stop. But neither do I want to look the part of a tired, haggard mom. I have posted before about easy 5 minutes to beauty HERE. But some days, I couldn't even be bothered with that. However, I do have a few Bus Stop essentials that - I hope - keep me from appearing at the bus stop in curlers and a tattered housecoat. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
First of all - you just gotta be comfortable. I am out there with 3 kids and they all want to run in the park across from our house while they wait. As much as I'd love to put on me fancy pants and shoes -- not at all practical. Enter the yoga pant.
Get the side-eye? Lie. As far as they know - you are doing a workout right after your kids leave. Or a power walk with the toddler accessory.
The other key is cute footwear. Ya know, cause you don't take yourself too seriously. You ARE go with the flow mom.
You'll change into your running shoes later.
If you are really lucky.....your husband won't be able to resist a sweet kiss on that exposed nape.
And if you cannot master this look, or have short hair that just requires too much work:
just own it!
There you go. Just a few things mom needs to survive Bus Stop Faux Pas this year.
