I don’t want to sound mean, but when it comes to the term “stylish celebrity mom,” I think of Heidi Klum and Jessica Alba, NOT Jennifer Garner.

However, I do love the actress. Apart from being quite charming with real talent to boot, she also seems really genuine. And the fact that almost every pic of her on the web shows her on mommy duty also makes me think she puts her family first.

She’s not into fashionable dressing, though she does make a tiny-teeny bit of effort by topping her usual look, which usually includes a long-sleeve sweater or shirt plus jeans, with a scarf. Check out Jen and her usual mommy duty “uniform” below:

Not what you’d call interesting, right? Now, among all the “generic” errand outfits, it’s this look she put together right before she delivered her third child (yay! Congrats, Jen!) that I like (so far).

Seeing her step up using a printed scarf instead of the usual plain is nice. And for another, I love that she chose a bold and daring catty pattern to go with her otherwise colorless outfit. The contrast is gorgeous, and it brightened up her face by a mile:

A leopard or cheetah printed accessory is the quickest way to add “oomph” to a boring attire. You can quickly tell the difference; doesn’t she look better in it than those other outfits?

I don’t have any information on Jennifer’s printed scarf yet but do remember to take a cue from her here. Remember that one easy way to spice up a bland get-up is by topping it with a leopard print scarf.
