Here is my fashion dilemma. I used to be a corporate-y type person, then went back to grad school to study psychology and now am the mom of a toddler. In 3 weeks I will be in San Francisco at a conference where I will be the “partner’s” wife (it’s my husband’s conference). We have at least one “business casual” dinner plus sight seeing plus a dinner at Chez Panisse. During the day I will be running around the city with my 21 month old daughter and making the acquaintance of various playgrounds along the way.Here are three outfits that can get Sandra through most anything in San Francisco:
What can I wear to the business casual dinners that would be wearable again in other situations? What can I wear during the day that would look hip but still be functional (i.e. Climbing up a slide after my daughter)? How do I look stylish and not just “mommy-ish”?
I am in desperate need for a fall jacket and some shoes.
