What are some great style for an active mom, me!? I'm 46 and have a 9 year old son. I can use some tips to spruce my style up a bit.

What would you suggest for a plus mommy. I want to look good, but not like a bad mom. I ave a tummy and a big butt. My legs are very muscular and i have a skinny face and neck. My arms are a lttle bigger now, because I am not in sports anymore.

 What is going to be the "in" color scheme for this fall?  Is it going to work well for all body types?

What about for mommies with a full-bust? I have DD's, and they look HUGE in most everything I wear. I would like to be able to wear something that won't draw a lot of attention to my chest, but I want something age-appropriate. I'm 23 I don't want to start dressing like an old lady quite yet.

Hello Hayley,

I just turned 30 this month.  I've been a mom for 10 years.  I have a LOT od room for improvement when it comes to my 'style'.  

First ... I'm a stay at home mom, most day my biggest outing is dropping the older kids at school and picking them up.  I don't want to look like i'm trying too hard because it is nothing big. but I don't want to look like a slob either.  How can I update an every day jeans and tee shirt look to have some more sophistication and polish without being too overdone?

Also ... as a mom of 4, on one income ... there is not a lot of wiggle room as far as money to invest in my wardrobe.  What are some STAPLES that every woman should have in her closet?

I am going to be a licensed real estate agent next month. That means I'll have to shop for some professional clothing. My issue is that I'm 26 years old, and I find professional office attire to be stuffy and uncomfortable. What are some styles that would still be considered professional, but be comfortable and stylish?
