Hilary Duff's Black Maxi Skirt and Ancient Greek Sandals Look for Less

Hilary Duff has the best mom-on-the-go style in her black maxi skirt and Ancient Greek sandals.
Hilary Duff looked cool and casual in her marled grey sweater, black maxi skirt and 'Eleftheria' sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals ($250, shopbop.com) as she took her son Luca out for the day.

I'm loving her mom-on-the-go outfit that doesn't sacrifice style for comfort! So often I fall into the jeans-and-t-shirt rut, but I'm definitely going to seek out a jersey maxi skirt like Hilary's for spring and summer.

I'm also seriously in love with her Ancient Greek sandals - they're so simple yet so chic! I found a good lookalike under $100 by Steve Madden in genuine leather but if you want to spring for the real deal, by all means please do!
