Get the Celebrity Mom Look for Less: Rachel Zoe

My regular followers know I have my, um, “quirky” obsessions — baby hats, anyone? — one of which is trying to copy cool celebrity looks for less.  You see, I don’t have the vision to pull my own ensembles together, so I let celebrities and their stylists lay the groundwork for me, then hunt down their pieces on the Internet when the kids are sleeping at night and I should be sleeping, too.  But I’m so excited to have some free time to myself that I do inane things like check out TMZ to see what Gwen Stefani wore to the park today instead of nourishing my exhausted body with sleep.

Makes total sense, right?

So while I’m at it, I figured I might as well share some of my findings with you…and rationalize all this time analyzing celebrity fashion as WORK.  Up this week:  Stylist Rachel Zoe in one of her go-to ensembles.  I selected a more park-friendly heel height for the boots, as well as a more subtle faux fur accessory (not all of us would look so skinny with THREE layered tops) not pictured in the top graphic.

    I’m sure there are cheaper ways to look like a dried up raisin? Love the idea, but couldn’t you use a celeb who’s not anorexic? I don’t think it’s sending out a good message.. For example, I love Jessica Alba’s playground styles!

      Alba’s on my list! As are moms of ALL sizes, big and small, if their style is fun.
