It's that time of year again ladies! Fall is fast approaching and as we get prepared to send our little ones back to school in style, we may also want to consider our own 'Mommy On The Go' fall wardrobes. As a busy mom myself, I'm all too familiar with full schedules as the school year gets in gear. From running in from work, to PTA meetings and after-school events, the last thing we want to be is uncomfortable. This is why I live by the mom-on-the-go 3C's guide to dressing: Cute, Comfy and Classy. 

I came up with a few of my favorite fall trends to keep an eye out for this season and, of course, how to rock them using my 3C's rule. Check out how these looks can keep you on the cool moms list this year.

The must-have color in your closet this fall is grey. This color was all over the runways for Fall 2014 and we're loving it! Pair it with cherry red, tangerine, tan or play around with it as tone on tone.

If you're wondering, animal prints are here to stay! Although leopard was the go-to print this past season, this year we say hello again to snake skin. Animal prints to me are neutrals but the key here is to remember not to go overboard. For example, pair your one key bold print with another solid so it pops. You don’t want to be THAT mom at the PTA meeting with a head-to-toe look.

Although I love a great handheld bag, cross body and shoulder bags are more realistic for moms-on-the-go like me. We need hands-free purses and I believe the style gods have heard our cries! Designers are bringing back the bucket bag with a vengeance including details like chains, studs and textures. Run out and get one of these stat!

If you are ever in doubt of what to wear in the fall and your pressed for time you can never go wrong with black leggings, a white cotton t-shirt and a super-sized cardigan. A ballet flat or slip on sneaker will top it off and you're out the door in 15 minutes flat. It's a 3C's classic.

Comfort and style all in one, yes please! It can easily be seen as lazy but show me a mom who is in a rush who wouldn't reach for these cuties? Pair with jeans, your favorite t-shirt and a boyfriend style blazer and you're chic in seconds!
