October is officially here and so is the start of fall and the so-called ‘spooky’ season! From getting ready for Halloween to getting the kids back into the full swing of school before the holidays, this is one of the busiest times of the year for moms. Between kids’ activities, work, and trying to keep up with everything else on our to-do lists, we barely get a second to breathe!
One of the best parts about October is that the temperatures are still slowly dropping while the weather moves towards winter. That means we get to whip out our favorite cozy jackets, soft sweaters, and more to stay cozy and wrapped in warmth all season long! But with the changing seasons comes changes in trends and the age-old question – as a mom, what should you be wearing to stay comfortable and stylish during October?
To help you get inspired, we’ve put together 15 of our favorite seasonal outfits for October. Happy shopping!
