Mom Challenge: Swap Your Sweats!

Step Away from the Sweatpants

Okay, everyone knows how arctic they keep the temperature at the grocery store, but come on moms – lose the sweats! Even though the weather is starting to cool down, there are still options for keeping warm through the freezer aisle that won’t stifle a sudden run-in with your child’s piano teacher or a big-time client you just signed.

We all love the feel of fleece and the freedom of an elastic waistband, but enough is enough! MSL challenges you to forego the workout wear (occasionally) and slip on a chic, yet still comfortable, and easy-to-style ensemble.

Sporty Glam. MSL is loving this take on the new glam sweatshirt with quilted leather. It pairs perfectly with skinny jeans, a chunky necklace, and moto-boots or even a pair of Converse sneakers. Accessorize with an animal print bag and trust us, a sweatshirt never looked so good.

Casual Chic. Printed silky pants are so haute right now and easy to wear. In many different colors and patterns. style them with a slipper loafer and a brightly-colored tee that sits just over the waistband (don’t tuck in your shirt with this style, ladies!). You look fabulous, dah-ling.

The point is, there are ways to get dressed quickly and be comfortable, but still styled and ready for what your day may bring. As a mom, we know that a dash to Whole Foods may mean running into another mom and having an impromptu coffee, or even bumping into a cute, single dad you know at the store (for your single moms out there!). You never know what life or the daily grocery store run will hand you…our motto is always be fashionably prepared!
