How to Create Back-to-School Style That'll Leave You Feeling Like the Cool Mom

You’re a busy momma, which means you don’t need one more thing on your plate.

Raquel teaches busy moms how to step out of their athleisure and into outfits they love for the school year.

And if you don’t feel confident putting together cute, comfortable outfits, choosing one can drag out the morning and leave you feeling less than confident all day long.

Your style should feel easy, but it should also make you feel put together.

Which means it’s time to put down the Lululemon and try something new. With the right styling techniques (I’ve got ‘em in the video below!), you’ll be ready to go in just a few minutes.

  • what cute and comfortable pant style to swap your leggings for

  • the t-shirt to wear to feel both dressed up and down

  • 3 jackets that work whether you’re in the grocery store or the carpool line

  • a shoe brand making comfortable heels that actually work for your feet all day long

  • the casual one-piece that’s just as easy to throw on (and way cuter) than your athleisure

  • the fashion sneakers I swear by
