Looking your best every day isn’t an easy task. When you’re a mother, it can be even harder to find the time to put yourself together every day. But just because you’re busy, it doesn’t mean you have to neglect yourself.
If looking good is important to you, you can find your own way to create your look in the time you have available.

One of the ways to look good all the time is to pay attention to the little things. Even if you’re dressed casually, you can still have a unique necklace on or an eye-catching bag.
Try these little touches to elevate any outfit.
Wear a Watch
Perhaps currently you use your mobile to tell the time. A watch might seem a little pointless to you, but it can be the ultimate accessory for a busy mum.
Whether you wear a traditional analogue watch, a digital watch or even a smartwatch, it can look good and help you stay on track.
Your watch can be an ever-present accessory that completes any outfit, and it can do a variety of other things too. If you get a smartwatch or fitness tracker, you can watch your activity levels.
Smartwatches can help you stay on top of your schedule and calls.

Get an Arty Phone Case
Most people have their phone with them all the time nowadays. You’re probably forever having to get it out, whether you’re taking a business call or scheduling a play date. If it’s going to be surgically attached to you at all times, you might as well make sure it looks good.
An artistic iPhone case can add a splash of colour to any outfit. Even if you’re conducting the school run or going to the gym in leggings and an old t-shirt, it shows that you’re usually much more fashionable.
Match a Few Details in Your Outfit
If you’re unsure about how to bring an outfit together, consider picking a motif to run through your outfit.
There might be something on one piece of clothing that you can match to other things. For example, perhaps your floral skirt could go with a flower necklace. However, you could also add something that’s not on your clothes.
Use the same motif on your hairclip as you wear on your bracelet or as a brooch. Nothing has to match exactly, though. You could pick a more general theme to run through your outfit.

Pick a Signature Accessory
Do you know someone who always has an amazing bag with them or never takes off their colourful scarf? If you want to look good even on your lazy days, this is one way you can do it.
Pick a signature accessory that you always have with you. It doesn’t have to be the same item every day. You can simply build a fun collection of scarves or statement necklaces, so you always have one to show off.
You don’t have to do anything big or flashy to look good. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a difference.
