Pretty Fix: The August List

It’s August which means it’s Back to School month at GYPO.  This month you can expect to see loads of content that will help get you and the girls in your life ready for back to school.  To kick it off, I’m going back to basics with an outfit that’s basically my everyday uniform during the school year for today’s Pretty Fix.

There’s a lot more in store.  This month I’ll be releasing two special back to school capsule wardrobes – one for girls sizes 7-16 and one for juniors sizes. Plus there will be a special giveaway just for a deserving teacher to get her school year started off right.

If you’re new around here, the Pretty Fix is a monthly feature at Get Your Pretty On that features my top five picks for the month that you can shop for on your own to stay in style. The idea for it was born out of frustration that some of you have had with other monthly box services that you feel “miss the mark”.

This month’s fix features pieces to create your own everyday outfit to be the coolest mom in the carpool line while feeling completely comfortable and put together. While I try to keep things budget friendly, different price points are included if you prefer a higher quality alternative.

Consider me your personal shopper. Here’s your August Pretty Fix.

August Pretty Fix

1. Striped Tee

Almost every capsule wardrobe I’ve ever created has at least one striped t-shirt on the list.  There’s a great reason for that – they never, ever go out of style.  Try it in gray and white for a fresh update.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3

2. Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are slouchy perfection. Try a pair with light distressing to tap into your inner rock star.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3

3. Leather Tote

A leather tote is a chic way to stash all of your daily must-haves.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3

4. Leather Band Watch

Leather band watches are one of fall 2016’s hot accessory trends.  Great news, they’re also a classic that you’ll wear year after year.  Don’t be afraid to invest in a good quality watch.   Shopping Options: 1/2/3

5. Low Profile Sneaker

Comfy kicks are always in style, especially for busy moms.  Shopping Options:  1/2/3
