As a mom I just don’t always have the energy to dress up and wear heels. That’s what chasing after a toddler will do to you. I’ve found myself looking for ways to dress down certain items in my closet to make it more appropriate for toddler chasing!

Like these leather pants, for example. Lately I’m finding out just how versatile they are. Adding a maxi cardigan and my favorite leopard sneakers make them casual enough to wear when I’m home with my boy all day (and want to look put together!). We all have those days that result in pajamas all day long, but getting dressed and ready to go makes me more motivated to get things done. Throwing on a comfortable, casual outfit like this one gives me a kick start to my day.
