Celeb Mom Looks for Less: Spring 2012

Spring is a wonderful time of year for kids. Sports start back up, the Easter Bunny arrives, and the end of the school year is in sight. But with all the hustle and bustle of little ones, it's easy to forget to give yourself a little “me” time.

This spring, don't forget about yourself! Treat yourself to a pedicure before sandal weather arrives, and leave a little room in your budget for a new spring outfit. With this, you'll feel great, refreshed, and ready to have some fun with the kiddos! Before you head out shopping, let's take a look at what some of Hollywood's moms are wearing this spring. I'll share three trendy looks — and how you can get the styles for less!

jessica alba

Jessica Alba always impresses me with her ability to look super trendy, but in a comfortable and practical way. Unlike other celeb moms (who shall remain unnamed), she leaves the short dresses and sky-high heels at home when she's out with her daughters. Here, she wears a basic tee with some bright blue pants. Colored pants are a big trend this spring, so snatch some up if you can. When it comes to wearing colorful pants, it's always best to keep the rest of your outfit basic, just like Jessica does. She accessorizes with some classic aviator sunglasses, a spring scarf, and some simple and comfy flats.

Reese Witherspoon's style is the definition of classic. She always gravitates toward timeless pieces and silhouettes. The photo above was taken on a Sunday morning after church, and she's definitely wearing her Sunday best! Here, Reese channels the retro Mad Men trend with a classic a-line dress and a basic satchel. She wears some mod cat eye sunglasses and basic black flats. This outfit is cute, but also modest and classic — perfect for any mom!

Okay, so Jessica Simpson isn't a mom yet, but she will be before we know it! (Who knows, maybe she'll have her baby before this is posted!) Is anyone else totally irked about the criticism she's received regarding her weight gain? I mean, give the girl a break, she is very pregnant! (Course, maybe she was asking for it with that Elle cover.) I don't know — what do you think? Anyway, Jessica is wearing one of my favorite trends: safari! She has a flowing patterned maxi dress — maxis are incredibly comfy and flattering on so many body types. She carries a bright hobo bag and layers against spring's chilly breeze with a cardigan.
