What to Wear for HuckMom

So Huckmom from http://huckabyfam.blogspot.com has taken up the challenge...Thanks Kel! Kelly is going to the Ritz at Lake Oconee for her Mom's 50th birthday. They are also taking the kids. She asks "what the heck do I wear to dinner in the "fancy" dining room with my 3-yr old and nursing baby?" And she would like it to be on the Target and Old Navy budget.

Well Kel, I will do you one better. I am betting that I can get a good outfit with stuff you probably have in your closet with a few accent pieces from our fav. Target. For the ever changing Georgia weather, ever changing lifestyle of a mother of two I would recommend layering (lovely to hide spit up, slobber, and food of all kinds). I saw this great coat at Target for less than $60 and thought it would be a great focus piece. With a coat like this, you can build around what you have.

I thought the simple black skirt/black shirt combo would be best (thinking that this is the make-shift Little Black Dress for the nursing). A flowy chiffon draped skirt is a little dressier than the typical skirt. You could pair this with either a sleeveless shirt if you or the climate is feeling hot...but I think the 3/4 length shirt is a great line on everyone.

The best part of this outfit is that you can pair it with things that you have. If you have black shoes, like these from Payless, then rock em. .

But if you want to glam it up then go for metallics. Gold is big right now and can be used as a neutral (like black). Silver is also good for women fortunate enough to have Kelly's warm coloring and dark hair. Here are some accessories that I loved from Target and Payless. (I am really into one stop shopping...and Target just did it for me with this assignment).

I hoped this gave you some fun ideas, Kel. My disclaimer with this assignment is that I fell in love with this jacket a few weeks ago, so it came into my mind immediately. If you have other ideas let me know!
