School Drop-Off Uniform

Mornings with kids are exhausting. Trying to get your kids fed, dressed and out the door on time, not to mention dressing yourself, is a race against the clock. So how is it that celeb moms like Elle Macpherson look so glamorous at school drop-off when we barely have enough time to put on a bra? The answer is a uniform. Resist the urge to leave the house in your slippers, instead, pull on your jeans, a fitted blazer (bra or no bra, doesn't matter), and a classic ballet flat. A colorful, oversize scarf is warm and stylish and can even cover the breakfast that you spilled on your top as you were running out the door.
