Occupation: Bookkeeper at Peebles Trucking/housecleaner/mother
It is acknowledged, mothers have one of the toughest jobs around. When it comes to how Moms should dress, some have fixed beliefs.
Lyndsey Peebles chucks those beliefs aside, dressing for herself. She doesn’t buy into pressure to wear designer duds— nor is she a slave to the hottest trends. Instead, she combines comfort and simplicity with color and texture, creating a look that’s reflective of her bubbly personality and her lifestyle.
How would you describe your style?
I would say, first and foremost [it’s about] comfort. Because I’m usually running kids around or running errands, I always try to be comfortable. I always try to wear tennis shoes and [stylish] sweatshirts [and athletic wear].
When did your sense of style begin?
I think I found more of a sense of style after I had kids, because I feel like I’m more comfortable in a casual type of outfit.
What are your favorite colors to wear?
I love corals, pinks and blues.
Where are your favorite places to shop?
I sporadically buy things. I wouldn’t say I have a favorite. When I have time I like to go to TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, those kinds of places to dig in and find good deals.
Are there any local places you like to shop?
A friend of mine works at Passion for Fashion in Wauseon and I’ve gotten a couple cute pieces [from] there that I’ve had for a while.
What are three must-haves in your wardrobe?
Jeans, Chucks and scarves.
Your current outfit: where did you get it?
This vest is from TJ Maxx, the sweatshirt I can’t remember, the jeans are from Maurice’s and the tennis shoes are probably from Shoe Carnival.
What fashion tips do you have for mothers?
I think just getting pieces that are simple but can go with a lot of different things. I have a white button-up shirt that I wear with a lot of things, like a sweater, a vest… a couple good, staple pairs of jeans, a couple jackets that are cozy and still stylish. Just wear what’s comfortable on you. Don’t be so concerned about what you think you should be wearing.
