SAHM Fashion Trends

Spring is almost here, and if you're like most SAHMs, that means you'll be changing out your fleece sweat suit and sneakers for some jersey capris, t-shirt and sandals.

Of course, you may want to embrace the 2011 Spring Hairdo Trend. Guess what? It's bangs and bobs. Again.

Should I admit now that when I was browsing shoes on Piperlime at 6 am I actually keyed in the words Spring 2010 fashion.
 And yeah, we both know this is 2011.

So, if you rarely shower before noon, find yourself bra-less in a ball cap and yoga pants most days when the Fedex guy shows up, I'm doing you a favor.

What to wear when you finally get out of the house this Spring, so you won't look like a total hermit or overworked Mommy who got her fashion tips from the Victoria's Secret Catalog.

  • wide legged and bell bottomed jeans or trousers   (bye bye skinny jeans)
  • lace, crochet, macrame accents ( not a bikini or a dress, please)
  • floral and billowy tops  (this does not mean you can ditch the diet.)
  • wedge shoes, booties     (walking downhill will never be the same)
  • accessories that are textured: wooden, leather, neutrals
  • denim, denim, denim  (finally, the 70's are back.)
  • biker- inspired clothes and accessories  (aim for sleek leather and zippers, not rocker skank)
  • maxi dress (sheer, is one way... but probably not for you.)
  • capri pants (stop cheering. Yours are probably stained from jello shooters.)
  • jumpsuit, not catsuit (yes, it will be a bitch to go pee.)
  • stripes  ( maybe not horizontal. just sayin')
  • crop tops and long tail hemlines ( if you're under 35)
  • clogs ( 'nuf said.)
  • kitten heels  (no animals were harmed in the naming of this shoe)
  • cat eye sunglasses ( whew. I have the perfect pair in my glove box!)
  • the belt purse  ( not a murse. not a fanny pack)

good luck SAHMs and happy dressing
