Working Mama Wears ::Accessories::

A couple of weeks ago I posted about some outfits that are for the Working Mama.
You can find that post here.
Today I am talking about accessories to pull a working mama's look together
  as well as important items that will be sure to keep any mama organized.

First up,
a great bag is a must!
This mama right here has quite the obsession for a great classic bag.
And like the shoes I posted about in the first Working Mama Wears
I would suggest a good, sturdy, leather, large bag in a black or brown.
Black and brown go with everything.
That way you can splurge a bit on the bag because you only have to buy two bags.
I have a Louis Vuitton that I double as a work and diaper bag.
The bag is perfection and I know it will last for years and years.
I also have a larger sized Kate Spade bag in black
that I can stuff full and still look like a trendy mama.
Again, this bag will be my go to bag for years to come.

Working Mama Wears::Accessories::

Up next are simple jewelry pieces.
My work staples are a silver watch, gold watch, silver diamond stud earrings, gold earrings,
and a long chain necklace in silver and one in gold.
When I want to dress up an outfit I normally throw on a longer necklace.
It is a simple way to look like you put more work into your outfit than you actually did.
I buy a lot of my longer necklaces at Ann Taylor.
 I normally only wear my diamond studs and gold earrings to work.
I don't like to do big hoops or chandelier earrings at work.
I personally feel that keeping your earrings simple at work is a bit more professional.
Also, every working Mama needs to know the time.
You don't want to be late for important scheduled meetings
or picking up your sweet face from day care.

Oh technology,
us Mama's love being connected at all times.
So besides looking fab with all your other accessories,
don't forget to make a statement out of your pieces of technology.
There are so many fun and beautiful cases out there for the iPhone.
Tory Burch makes my favorite iPhone cases.
Look at the one above.
Its gorgeous and leopard print!
Whether you have an iPad or Mac, there are some gorgeous cases and accessories out there
to protect your social media  work life.
Also, an agenda is on the must have to keep any working mama organized.
I personally have the Erin Condren life planner.
It keeps me super organized, however that sucker is heavy!
I hate to tote it around in fear of losing my circulation.
Yes, its that heavy.
I would suggest something more along the lines of the one above.
It's my Kate Spade and is more compact and portable.
Kate Spade makes delicious office products.
Go check them out to see how Ms. Spade can make you more organized and trendy.

So ladies,
what are your go to accessories for the working mama?

These posts almost make me want to go back into the outside "working world". I work from home so my outfits generally consist of yoga pants and hoodies. Your ideas are much, much cuter : ) Although I do always wear my diamond studs, hoodie or not, ha!
