But as much as we want our kids to have everything they need to be ready for school, there are also a few items moms shouldn't feel guilty about buying for themselves in order to look stylish and ready for fall. And as much as it's tough to hang up our summer dresses and comfy shorts, we're definitely nearing the point where the temperatures just won't fit with our clothing choices anymore.

I mean, we're already out shopping, so why not throw a few extra items into the cart?

One thing I plan on picking up this season is a cute pair of colored jeans, like the ones pictured from Old Navy, which are definitely all the rage right now. They're such a nice change from traditional blue denim, and they give moms an extra edge, which can be tough to achieve without looking like we're trying too hard!

Aside from colored jeans, here are seven other things moms need to buy for the perfect fall wardrobe.

What are you most looking forward to wearing this fall?
