Outfit Formula- Mom on the Go

Posted on: October 23, 2013

Angie over at You Look Fab offers great advice on outfit Formulas

And today’s post is my demonstrating her newest one,

A Hooded Sweatshirt Under a Blazer

Linking up with  The Pleated Poppy today!


I must confess, I don’t own any hooded sweatshirts that would work for this look. The key is that it has to be a thinner version, but that didn’t stop me from jumping right in to join the fun of trying out the formula..

I borrowed this jacket from my daughter!  


I love the casual ,but put together look of this formula.  Since I chose a ponte knit jacket with 3/4 sleeves,  I opted to style it by cuffing the sweatshirt sleeves over the jacket.  Throwing the hood over the jacket finishes off the look.


I think with the coloring and pattern of this outfit , it really is a spectacular fall combo! 

I had a lot of fun trying this out and think I would definitely do it again,.

I wonder what black or colored jeans would do for this combo?  Trying those ways would make a fresh take on the formula and I could create it several ways without looking repetitive.


I love a chance to wear Red lipstick and carry a red purse!

Dear Readers,  So what do you think of this forumla?  Could you do this for a Mom on the Go or weekend casual look?  Any ideas on how you would make this your own?  


I am grateful that I got my photos done early today and that I skipped a post yesterday, needed the break!

I am grateful that my daughter got so excited about a job opportunity I pointed her way.

I am grateful that I went back to bed after initially waking up and caught another 2 hours of sleep.

I am grateful that  I maintained last week’s weight which it the lowest I gone to in this game of gaining and losing the same 3 pounds over again.  Maintaining the lowest two weeks in a row is a first!

I am grateful for the You Look Fab Forum and all the things I learn from Angie!

Perfect mom on the go outfit. Loving the plaid sweater and the blazer layered over top of it.

Hope to see you tomorrow for my weekly tres-chic fashion thursday link up.


Thank you and yes I will be joining the link up with my Pinterest Inspired outfit!

Love this look! I wished I had a daughter’s closet I could raid. Maybe when my son gets older I can raid his closet for hoodies 🙂


funny, I have a 17 year old son who has a wonderful teal and black flannel shirt I’ve been eyeing,…

A nice outfit that looks good on you! I like the concept but I don’t even own a blazer right now. Time for a shopping trip.

I highly recommend a ponte knit blazer, as they have stretch and to me are similar to a tshirt as far as comfort goes!

Love this layered look. Plaid is huge this season and I am crazy about this red hoodie! Maybe your daughter will let you borrow it from time to time. 🙂

Oh, Tracey, another fabulous look. I’m with Lisa — I love the layering and the red plaid.
