Cheryl doesn’t have enough time to herself – with a husband who works long hours and kids to take care of, she needs a quick, fuss-free outfit that’s easy to wear but polished enough to feel on par with that annoyingly together super-mom who lives next door. A comfortable sweater dress ($128) is the perfect answer: just one piece, and it’s not too tight or clingy. Add a pair of Spanx tight-end tights ($26) to smooth out any bumps, and flat black boots ($229) for a clean, uninterrupted leg line. Two more essential busy-mom accessories: A sturdy nylon tote ($345) with lots of pockets, and an always classic silver watch ($195) that’s not too dainty to knock around a bit.

Ooh, goodie - Shopbop's gone and added more items to their recent sale. We dug through and found some of our favorite handbags, which, from clutches to totes, happened to include a few really unique (and not to mention well-priced) options. It's actually hard to believe this Juicy Couture clutch made it long enough to go on sale - we would have expected it to sell out in a few weeks ($114 from $228.) Right now, we love carrying a small bag with a long strap, like this metallic one from Antik Batik, when it's time to head to a party ($150 from $300.) It's hard to resist a big, beautiful tote like this one from 7 For All Mankind; I can't wait to throw my entire life into it ($167.50 from $335.)
