WINNING MOMS WORKING WARDROBE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CBC WORKIN' MOMS

WINNING MOMS WORKING WARDROBE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CBC WORKIN' MOMS

This third style profile, inspired by CBC's Workin' Moms (Tuesdays at 9:30EST), takes a look at Frankie Coyne's work wardrobe. Frankie is having a difficult time adjusting to life with a baby and, like so many, she's just trying to keep it together. What she wears is likely at the bottom of her priorities. The thing is, her career as a real estate agent, demands that she convey a certain professional aesthetic when she meets with prospective buyers and sellers. Taking into account the work wardrobe foundation that we explored last week with Jenny's profile, Frankie could add a few punchy items that suit her wacky personality and maybe help lift her spirits. Don't get me wrong, in no way do I believe that clothes are a substitute for proper mental health care, but there is something to be said for the uplifting affect of colour to help you get up & out and make another #MomFTW moment.

WHY THIS WORKS:

The print and colours of this Stella Jean statement jacket are enough to brighten any day. 

If you're not feeling your best, a bold piece pulls a whole look together effortlessly & professionally - even over jeans or leggings.

Next week, for my final installment of Winning Moms Wardrobe series, in Partnership with CBC Workin' Moms, I look at Anne Carlson's style.
